Jamaica is an underused fantasy setting, and this complex jungle adventure sizzles. Lauren Blackwood gifts Wildblood with a strong protagonist, Victoria, and pits her against all kinds of supernatural menaces -- from river spirits to lethal butterflies. Victoria and Thorn jump right into a swoony romance, before having to make unimaginable sacrifices at the climax. All in all, an impressive second novel.
