Popular Kindle All Smoke Rises: Milk-Blood Redux The lightning can strike twice!The author contacted me and I received a copy of this book in exchange of a honest review.LILLY’S BODYThis novel is sequel to Milk-Blood also written by Mark Matthews, and this second visit to the raw environment of this story is as good as the first engagement. A bold statement that a lightning of literary brilliance can strike (in the good way) in the same story that certainly deserved a follow up taking you to dark ambiances where nothing is safe and anything can happen.You thought that you know Lilly’s story, but that was just the beginning.Lilly’s story expanded as you couldn’t imagine where the diverse points of view of the characters show you that harsh web cobbed around the sad existence of a girl that her only sin was to born from the wrong people in the wrong place, therefore growing up in the wrong way.However, the narration isn’t wrong, not in the least. Matthews’ engaging style is gripping since the beginning where he drop you a “bomb” in the table, making irresistible to keep reading to know what could happened.But beware……as in the first book, this isn’t for the faint of heart, since the crude reality merges with the impossible stuff that only you can judge if it’s really happening or it’s the result of a messed trip.
