I received this book for free from Henry Holt and Co BYR in exchange for an honest review This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review Genre Young Adult, Mystery Rating 3.0 My Thoughts Blood Will Tell is the second novel in the Point Last Seen series This story once again features three teenagers in Alexis Frost, Nick Walker, and Ruby McClure who couldn t be different even if they tried Different social backgrounds, different reasons for being a part of the Portland s [...]
I read The Body in the Woods by April Henry for book club, and I don t think that if I hadn t read The Body in the Woods, I don t think I would have read Blood Will Tell In this book, you get to explore Nick s character which I really liked The last book based on Alexis and Ruby, and I wanted to know about Nick The suspense was also really awesome I thought that the murderer was someone, else the the person it was I m not really a person who likes seeing a ton of blood, and I was kind of gross [...]
3.5 starsI liked this one than the first The characters are established and it was nice being back in their heads The story starts off with a bang and doesn t let go until the very end I loved that we got the killer s POV and it was ambiguous enough to keep me wondering who it was until the reveal A great installment to the series I m eager to see what s next for these kids Huge thanks to Macmillan for sending me the arc
This book was about how a girl went to her friend s house only to find out that he wasn t their because he was at his training, so she was going to walk home but she saw a cat and later on that night she didn t report home.So out of nowhere she went missing and now her guy best friend is searching for her.
I loved this book so much In some places it made me mad because of cliff hangers but, other than that it was amazing I never really could get into mysteries but this author has a way of sucking you in It is a great book If you have read The Body in the Woods then you will love this book
this book was the bomb, awesome for winter break
I thought April Henry s first book The Body in the Woods was excellent, so I was really anticipating another excellent read with this one As in the first one, I really became engaged with the characters, but I just really felt let down by the ending this time I didn t want anything predictable, but I expected to be able to make some connections even if I couldn t come up with the correct culprit It was way too far fetched, in my view at least to connect all the dots Just a big disappointment.
I just finished BLOOD WILL TELL by April Henry, this is a mystery book I really just couldn t set this book down, it left me at a cliff hanger every time i d be done with a chapter The main characters were Nick, Lucy, and Ruby Nick he is working with the SAS to help solve crimes, he is very observant Lucy a girl that died and is the main point of the mystery Ruby she takes care of her mother because her mother is special and she doesn t really show any character traits in public but she is a car [...]
This book is so intense and it s kind of a horror story This book is about a woman s body is found at a Portland park They suspect that kid name Nick who lived close by where the incident happened, is the one who killed the woman name, Lucy Nick is part of Seach and Rescue Team Some of his team are, Alexis and Ruby He s been dreaming to be an army but this vulnerability doesn t stop him from becoming a suspect when there is too much evidence But Ruby and Alexis work together to identify the real [...]
This book was definitely good book I would recommend the to anyone that likes a good and twisty mystery I thought that the theme of this book was you never know who did it because in this book all along that thought it was this guy who wasn t like them He had a lot of knifes and unusual things But you would never know if it was actually him until they ran through tests Also the theme is also don t judge a character by how they look or act because just cause this guy didn t act like them they tho [...]
This book is about a girl body was found at a park.And I didn t really like about that part when it said she killed a girl.But I tried and keep reading on but when the mom called her friend to tell her to come back home but the friend said that she left an hour ago, so the mom was worried about her, the mom kept on calling and checking were she went.
Great mystery with forensics thrown in If you like forensic science and mysteries then you ll like this book Go Three Musketeers
Personal response I enjoyed this book because it was mysterious It s like when I smell tortas de carne asada The smell keeps me walking to the kitchen or restaurant I knew that Nick didn t kill Lucy Hayes because he has a chapter once in a while but in the story he never once said he stopped and killed a woman on his way home from saving Marianna Chavez I found the book pretty interesting Plot Summary Marianna Chavez is a seven year old girl who got lost after playing with her friend Nick Walker [...]
Personal ResponseHonestly, Blood Will Tell, is one of the best books that I have read so far this year The intensity of it draws you in until you can t put the book down The way it started out, I was disinterested because it was kind of confusing and hard to follow I felt like what was going on in the book had nothing to do with what I thought was going to happen I was pleasantly surprised in the end when I figured out how everything fit together Plot SummaryA small girl goes missing one night, [...]
As I read some of the reviews on this book, I thought I would like it better than then first one But I didn t Some things about the ending urked me, and I wasn t very found of Nick s attitude in some parts I had this idea in my head of how the killer was related in all of this and I turned out to be wrong, it would ve been fine if the truth was better than what I thought but it wasn t At least, not to me It was still a good book, I just personally liked the first one better I can t wait to see w [...]
Review courtesy of Dark Faerie TalesQuick Dirty I went into this expecting a great mystery that would keep me on my toes, and instead I got a story that I figured out within a couple chapters The characters were dull, the mystery was non existent, and I found the whole thing to be a pretty boring read.Opening Sentence Freshly spilled blood is wet, shiny, and startingly crimson.The Review Nick, Ruby, and Alexia are all members of the SAR squad in Portland, Oregon The three are all seniors in high [...]
More like 2 1 2These mysteries are entertaining, but they re nothing new They also don t have much substance It s a lot of repeating the same thing and reinforcing points that have already been made It feels almost middle grade to me, but what are you going to do We have the same characters from the first book Nick, Ruby, and Alexis We learn about two out of three of these characters, so that was cool However, each of these characters is so two dimensional Nick wants to prove himself Ruby is we [...]
THIS IS A PERSONAL REVIEW I really enjoyed this book It was interesting and enjoyable The only thing that makes this a 4 is that it made me really scared during night time.
Nick, Alexis, and Ruby the kids from The Body in the Woods are back and this time the case they are called in on is right in their backyard Actually, it is six block s from Nick s house.After coming home from an urban search for a lost 7 year old, Nick is surprised to wake up to the sound of sirens and to receive a SAR call to search for evidence A guy biking to work has found a young woman named Lucy who was stabbed and left to die She dies on the way to the hospital and the SAR team is called [...]
A little childish at times, but otherwise I really liked this one Blood Will Tell is a great way to introduce young adults into reading murder mysteries without giving them one that s too violent or shocking.
These three musketeers are really starting to grow on me I love ruby s analytical mind, Alexis compassion and nick s drive to be a hero A lot of shocking secrets were revealed in this one Can t wait to see how it changes the group and kids.
I really enjoyed this sequel to Body in the Woods It is told from Ruby s and Nick s p.o.v and center on how people s assumptions can affect so much in an investigation, as well as showing how it is possible to in trouble for a crime you didn t commit.
Enjoyed this so much Great teen suspense read April Henry can write.
Pretty good book, it was like a murder mystery, but what sucked is that it told you the murderer in the beginning of the book So you didn t get to figure it out
I really liked this book, it wasn t as good as the first one in the series but it was still interesting and kept me on the edge of my seat You should read it if you like mystery.
I had some unanswered questions but all in all it was a good, quick reed I enjoyed it better than the body in the woods.
I loved this book because it was so exciting and suspenseful I read it in one day The author tells the story through many people and blends it into a book It is about a weird teen boy who thought his father was a hero who died in the military when he was really a man who did go into the army but came back and killed a guy at a bar with his bare fists and was in prison since he was four, that s why all through his life he wanted to be a hero and join the military He drew violent scenes of people [...]
My daughter read this one and loved it She asked me to read it as well This is her second exposure to crime mystery as she read the first book in the Point Last Seen series I enjoyed it It s well written and has just enough action and mystery to keep a young adult riveted Let s be clear this is a young adult book If you want a globe trotting action adventure murder mystery, this ain t it It s about a bunch of high school kids who are going through high school and teen life drama caught up in a m [...]
