Fourteen-year-old Greg Dixon is living a nightmare. Attending boarding school outside of Boston, he is separated from his family when a pandemic strikes. His classmates and teachers are dead, rotting in a dormitory-turned-morgue steps from his room. The nights are getting colder, and his food has run out. The last message from his father is to get away from the city and to meet at his grandparents' town in remote New Hampshire.

Great book! Loved the story and almost all the characters, my only complaint was Emily she was not only unlikable but her interactions with other characters where also unbelievable. What Aunt is more concerned about getting some culture rather than getting to her 14 yr old nephew who is to their knowledge alone.

These are not the mild-mannered maidens of your childhood. These are fallen princesses and fierce women with no recollection of who they are, where they came from, or how they arrived in a mysterious town called Everafter. All they know is that they've been sentenced to a stretch in a half-way house by a malicious judge with an ax to grind. They've been stripped of their freedom, their kingdoms, and their true loves. Now, they have nothing left to lose.

The book was ok. Not nearly as good as Barbra anninos other books. This felt like more of a short story. My main problem was the book just cut off, not like a cliff hanger cause the book was really ready to be DONE. It was as if the last two chapters were just missing. It didn't leave me excited for the next book, just left me really disappointed in this one. Doubt I'll be reading more of this series

What disappointed you about Blood Passage?

I liked the first book in this series but this book begins the decline followed by the next book which was so degrading I could not listen to it. You have a strong smart heroine who is beaten by the people in control of her and then is constantly yelled at and belittled by her fiancé, now you wouldn't expect her to put up with it but the deeper you get into this series the more she cowers to the men in her life.

What do you think your next listen will be?

Nothing by Connie Suttle

What about Traci Odom’s performance did you like?

She did a fine job

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Anger and disappointment.

At seventeen, Avaline Hall has already buried her mother, survived a horrific factory fire, and escaped from an insane asylum. Now she's on her way to Blythewood Academy, the elite boarding school in New York's mist-shrouded Hudson Valley that her mother attended - and was expelled from. Though she's afraid her high society classmates won't accept a factory girl in their midst, Ava is desperate to unravel her family's murky past, discover the identity of the father she's never known, and perhaps finally understand her mother's abrupt suicide.
