PASSIONARIES by Tonya Hurley

Passionaries (The Blessed)

PASSIONARIES (Book 2 The Blessed)

About the story~

Three modern-day teens have been reincarnated as saints—or so they’ve been told.This dark, thrilling follow-up to Precious Blood blends the gritty with the miraculous.

As we learned in Precious Blood, Agnes, Cecelia, and Lucy “may be saints, [but] they are definitely not angels” (Kirkus Reviews). They watched as Sebastian sacrificed himself for what he believed in, and now they have choices to make of their own. Will the girls trust in their destinies as saints and martyrs and perform the miracles as Sebastian instructed? Or will they lose faith in themselves and each other in his absence? Time is running out for them to make a decision, and the fate of the world lies in the balance.

My thoughts~

Passionaries brings a dark, trendy and unique voice to the Young Adult market with Brooklyn as the perfect backdrop. I’m often nervous to read the second book in a series after I have fallen in love with the first one for fear that it won’t measure up to my expectations. Passionaries not only met those expectations, but soared beyond them. The characters are relatable and bring about a sense of authenticity that make you feel invested as they struggle to accept their extraordinary destinies and defeat the obstacles in their paths. This definitely will be on my recommend list of 2014!
