Book review: Judgement Day

Hello and welcome back to another book review. Today, I got quite an exciting book for you that I can’t wait to share!! (Apologies as this is quite delayed!)

Jack Valentine finally has her shit together. She has a great job, great friends (well, one at least) and a girlfriend whom she loves, even if she can’t work up the courage to tell her that yet. Unfortunately, she also has an archnemesis who’s about to punish her crimes in the worst possible way: by making her spend time with him.
Which she could cope with, maybe, if she didn’t have problems at work as well. When the body of a human judge is found in a locked library, there’s no denying that she was murdered by one of the Silver – by a vampire – and the evidence points worryingly close to home. If that wasn’t bad enough, some of Jack’s least favourite people are opening a new blood bar in Oxford with questionable motives. For Jack and her team, it’s becoming increasingly hard to separate allies from enemies.
With conspiracies on every side, the simmering tensions in Silver society are about to come to a head. As usual, Jack intends to be right in the middle of it. She does like it when things get messy.
Judgement Day is the second book in Josie Jaffrey’s Seekers series, an urban fantasy series set in Oxford, England.

Before starting, I would like to thank TheWriteReads and Josie Jaffrey for including me in this amazing opportunity! 💕

Judgement Day is the second book in a series, the first book being May Day which I’ve really enjoyed. So, imagine my delight at the prospect of reading the second book AND ending up liking it MoRe than the first!!

The writing style is pretty captivating ; I often found myself rushing to get to the end asap, but also being shocked/delighted–depending on the situation–by the events happening. I think this has more depth to it, and I really loved meeting some (if not most) characters for the second time around.

I especially liked the suspence coming from–aside from the investigated murder–the fact that some of the characters (the ones that we supposedly perceive as good) were not really who they seemed to be, and having to guess who is it along with the sadness and betrayal of the realisation was just BEAUTIFUL.

The ending is quite predictable (like we were waiting for that to happen for AGES!) yet, at the same time, it was phenomenal and I feel like I wantneed to continue on with the rest of the series!!

I highly recommend this for lovers of paranormal mystery books with silvers (kinda like vampires), a murder to solve, angst, betrayal, twists at every corner, and dare I say enemies to lovers(?!😍🤭)/romance.
