[Review] Seven Black Diamonds by Melissa Marr ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Overall I liked it. I like the diverse set of characters and the war between fae and humans. But I felt like there could be more. I really did like reading this book but I felt as if as some parts were missing, such as details of the school life. I wanted more I guess.


Summary: 
Lilywhite Abernathy is a criminal. Her father’s “unconventional” business has meant a life of tightly held secrets, concealed weaponry, and a strict code. But Lily’s crime isn’t being the daughter of a powerful mob boss. Her guilt lies in the other half of her DNA—the part that can coax ancient rumors from stones and summon fire with a thought. Lily is part fae, which is a crime in her world.

From the time before she was born, a war has been raging between humanity and fae. The Queen of Blood and Rage, ruler of both the Seelie and Unseelie courts, wants to avenge the tragic death of her heir—a death that was the fault of reckless humans.

Lily’s father has shielded her from the repercussions of her ancestry…until she is sent to the prestigious St. Columba’s school, straight into the arms of the Black Diamonds.

Mysterious, glamorous, and bound together in their mission but constantly at odds, Zephyr, Creed, Will, Roan, Violet, and Alkamy are a Sleeper cell of fae, planted in the human world to help destroy it from within. With covers as rock stars and celebrity children, the Black Diamonds carry out the queen’s war against humanity. And unbeknownst to Lilywhite, she’s been chosen to join them.

Now more than ever, Lily’s heritage puts her in peril, and even the romantic attention of the fae singer Creed Morrison isn’t enough to keep Lily from wanting to run back to the safer world of organized crime.


Review: 
Lily(white) is brave and truthful. She really does value those she loves and wants the best for them. She lives by her commandments (rules) and her actions are justifiable.

I wish there was more for Eilidh. I feel as if there could be so much more said about her and her upbringing. I want know more about her because I believe she will be the pivotal character.

I want to read the sequel but I wish there will be more detail.  Maybe it's the third person writing that didn't appeal to me as much as it should but overall I'm just something with the novel.

The idea is fantastic. But the novel itself was I guess satisfying? I'm a bit confused If there is even if a second book.

Well after some research (goodreads) there is a second book but I'm just confused on what will it be about. Usually I have a good idea of what the second book will be about but this one, I'm not too sure.

But I will read the second book. I love the concept of Seelie and Unseelie courts in this novel and I want to see how Lily follows through with her new secret.


I am interested in the second book but I hope it will be more satisfying than the first one.
