An Unhuman Journey by Candace Blevins #review #fantasy


There’s a war brewing between good and evil, and the chess pieces are being set…

Aaron has gone missing, and Mordecai has taken over Kirsten’s training. She’s learning by leaps and bounds under the god-of-old’s not-so-gentle tutelage, but with Nathan in charge of Drake Security during The Dragon King’s unplanned absence, everything is upside down.

 The evil Celrau vampires were banned from creating new offspring, but they’ve bargained for permission to do so in the Underworld, where the Concilio has no authority. As part of their army-building, the Celrau vampires kidnap Kirsten and take her to the Underworld with the intention of making her one of them. Alone in another realm, Kirsten must form unexpected alliances to survive a most Unhuman Journey.

 Join bestselling author Candace Blevins on a thrilling adventure into the critically acclaimed sequel to Only Human.


 “I have a proposition for you.”

I once again held my tongue and didn’t remind him there’d be no sex. “I’m listening.”

“I’d like to have full access to you from an as-yet-to-be-specified Thursday evening until Monday morning, for which I will pay you ten thousand dollars.”

I opened my mouth to turn him down, but he held a hand up. “No safeword. No limits. I’ll do whatever I want, however I want, with the understanding you’ll be rested, healed, and back to normal by seven o’clock Monday morning.”

 I love the novels by Blevins. I’ve inhaled most of them without breaks for food, drink, or other human urges. An Unhuman Journey is classic Blevins – an in-depth fantasy story that keeps readers flipping pages, a kickass heroine and a quick, witty style of writing that I do so enjoy.

First, the story. I have a major girl crush on Blevins. I only got into fantasy two years ago and her Rolling Thunder series was definitely one of the reasons (or faults depending on if you’re asking the hubby). I love how several of her series are intertwined, but still there’s still so much to learn about what’s really going on. Of course, we readers are waiting with bated breathe for the final battle between good and evil.

I have to admit that I’m not in love with Kirsten. I love reading novels written in first person, but I think in this case I would have enjoyed the story more if it wasn’t written solely form Kirsten’s perspective. She kept saying she wasn’t a badass, but she was a badass! Her denying it over and over, though, caused me to continuously look for her flaws. I didn’t enjoy the BDSM much either. To be honest, I’m not a huge BDSM fan, anyway, but if it’s coupled with love and romance, I can be down with it. Unfortunaly, Kristen’s story doesn’t involve much romance and that’s a bit disappointing. To be fair to Blevins – no one promised me romance, I just made a wrong assumption.

That’s not to say I didn’t eat the story about. Because I did. I read Only Human and An Unhuman Journey during a three-day trip. (Luckily, the flight attendants didn’t tell me to turn my kindle off at any time because those are fighting words!)

I recommend this book to fantasy lovers with enjoy their stories with a heaping side helping of BDSM scenes.
