MeiLin Miranda’s Son in Sorrow picks up a year into Temmin’s supplicancy at The Lovers Temple. He is now nineteen years old and has picked up many skills for reading and manipulating people; however, the Heir is struggling with an inappropriate exclusive love for Allis, the Embodiment of the female half of the Lovers, Neya, which affects both of their abilities to perform their required duties. Outside the Temple, the political intrigue hinted at in Lovers and Beloveds takes center stage as various individuals and groups, both inside and outside Tremont, begin power plays to take control. Not all of them harbor love for the monarchy either, which could destroy the very world the nobles long to protect. Sedra, Temmin’s eldest sister, also takes center stage as a political pawn as King Harsin finally moves to create alliances through a royal marriage, but his intelligent, strong willed daughter may not be as biddable as he anticipates. The political machinations and Temple issues spiral together in the strangest of ways, leaving Temmin feeling even less prepared for his responsibilities as Heir to his kingdom.

Welcome back to Morning Glory Academy, where the most elite students are invited to expand their horizons and push their academic potential!  Morning Glories is a more surreal episode in the story of the academy as it follows Vanessa’s release from imprisonment on the school grounds and brief time travel to say goodbye to the young man she loves before the tragedy struck Morning Glory Academy. Teacher Lara Hodge is set up as a sympathetic character since she claims responsibility for freeing Vanessa and granting her the opportunity to say farewell to Brendan, but, like everything else at the school, it comes with a hidden price.

A new virus cropped up approximately two years ago that is believed to have transferred from rare fleas on vampire bats to humans. HVV transforms seemingly ordinary individuals to blood-craving creatures with lightning reflexes who function best in the dark: vampires. World governments have struggled to incorporate these newly transformed citizens, and synthetic blood substitute Aeternus Eternus offers a safe way to allow “transhumans” to blend into the population; however, not all transhumans agree that synthetic food is the best option; human blood trafficking has grown exponentially, and plenty of humans are willing to provide their services in finding donors . . . for a cut of the profits. A legend has grown in this dark society of a creature neither human nor vampire that preys on the creatures of the night. No one knows who he is or where he came from; he is only known as Noctua.

“When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro.” ~Alice

When I first heard the title Alice’s Bloody Adventures in Wonderland, I was ecstatic, eagerly anticipating a stronger, less innocent/naive Alice, a role model of strength and intelligence for young girls like I associate with Katniss from The Hunger Games. But, this is not that adaptation, and, in retrospect, it would dishonor Lewis Carroll’s original piece to make Alice a heroine in that sense. Raul Alberto Contreras has created a world that resembles a hybrid of Quentin Tarantino’s sometimes seemingly unnecessary violence and Judd Apatow’s crass humor . . . and I must admit, I kind of like it.
