Blaire’s World is a shared world set of 7 books. They are all based in the world that Anita Gray created with her book Blaire, but they can all be read as a standalone. There may be some mild spoilers to Blaire or Blaire 2, but you don’t have to have read those books in order to read the Blaire’s World books. They don’t have to read in any particular order. However, I highly recommend reading the Blaire books, just because I think that they are great books. Six of the books are coming out on 2/26, but Demetrius will be coming out later in the year, for personal reasons.
Kristoff, by Measha Stone, is the first of the Blaire’s World books I’m reviewing.
Magdalena is a freelance reporter who has flown over to England to research Andrei Dowidoff. She knows from her sister, Danuta, that he is a human trafficker, and she wants to get a big story. Isn’t that what every journalist wants? And it seems to be working really well, at least until some guy ends up snatching her, drugging her, and taking her away.
Andrei is not a nice guy. Well, of course, he isn’t, he’s a trafficker, among other things. After a little light torture, he decides to hand Magdalena over to his son, Kristoff, to get her ready.
This was very intense. I couldn’t put it down at all. Kristoff and Magdalena grabbed a hold of me and just wouldn’t let go. I honestly didn’t know what to make of Kristoff at the beginning, and I flip-flopped a lot on him for a while. He is a great anti-hero though. He’s one of those guys who you like but you don’t want to like him, or you hate but you don’t want to hate him, and you vaguely wonder if you should seek some help from a mental health professional for your feelings. I think, overall, that I do like him, but I don’t have to like him all the time, right?
I like Magdalena. She’s strong, stubborn, and fierce. But I sometimes found myself wishing that she would bend, just a little. Of course, if she did that, she wouldn’t be who she was. And honestly, I don’t think it would’ve been as good a book if she did every bend. And it was a helluva good book. There’s just something about Magdalena that really drew me to her. She is just such a real character if you know what I mean. She feels real.
Just because I’m an evil bitch, I’m going to put nothing down here and not warn you about it, LOL.
Depending on when you are reading this, you should go pre-order or get this. It’s really good. Happy reading!
