Some family trees have to die.
The Bloodline Will by AB Morgan is a super thriller, with top notch characters and a story that will have you turning the pages at a rapid rate of knots. The follow-up to Death by Indulgence, it features some of my favourite characters Ella Fitzwilliam and Konrad Neale, both of whom I could happily read about all the time.
So what makes this book so special and such a great read. It has the perfect combination of a thrilling storyline, likeable lead characters and a deeply disturbing foe. When we first join Ella she is in a secure forensic unit, where she is visited by a shame faced Konrad Neale wanting to put right past mistakes. From there they join forces to unearth a dark and troubling secret that plagues one of Konrad’s nemesis.
The story slowly unwinds as they work together and I loved the way it grew organically and how the writer slowly dropped in clues to what was going on. This kept me hooked and I found myself so wound up in the story, I forgot to think about all the things currently worrying me. The story being so addictive I didn’t won’t to put it down, so I didn’t, I read and read and read, until I reached a climax, that left me feeling both shocked and exhilarated, because the writer allowed the characters to inhibit the story and peppered it with countless missteps that had me fooled on countless occasions.
Ella’s journey from the traumatised figure we left in Death by Indulgence is allowed to grow and develop. The writer’s background in mental health, enabled her to portray Ella as a very three demenional character, not the sterotypical personality seen in so many novels. Here she is full of light and self awareness and it made me love her so much. I wanted to see her flourish, acknowledging her fragility, but also the strength she has. AB Morgan gave me this. What happens to Ella, I will leave you to find out, its a thrilling ride, I promise. But she will always find a way into your heart, there is no way of avoiding that.
