Blood Bond by Heather Hildenbrand (Book 3 in the Dirty Blood series)

Blood BondHybrids.
If I had to choose one word to sum up all of my problems, this would be it.
Without hybrids, I wouldn’t have to watch my best friend slowly becoming a monster. Without hybrids, I could let go of the mentality “hunt or be hunted.” CHAS wouldn’t be scouring the Earth, intent on slaughtering and using Alex to do it. Without hybrids, I wouldn’t have to be on guard that losing my temper meant losing my shape. There would be no monster inside me, struggling to get out.

Then again, without hybrids, I wouldn’t have Wesley St. John.”

With most series I read, I tend to absolutely love the first one, the second one keeps me interested enough to keep going, and if there are more than three, well, at that point I just HAVE to finish it but have totally lost whatever captured my attention in the first book.  This series is NOT like that.  I actually love the third book in the Dirty Blood series as much as the first!  It is keeping me engaged, there is so much mystery and suspense layered in with the arc of story, It keeps me wanting more and I love it!

In this installment, we find Tara going across the country with George to the man that may be the only one that can help them both, her great uncle, Astor DeLuca.  Is he as crazy as the members of CHAS contend? Or does he hold the answers to Tara’s questions? Why does CHAS have it out for him? What does his research have to do with Tara? And why is she starting to shift to her wolf form now, instead of when she was younger.  Tara continues to grow into her role as the leader that Vera has seen her become.  And while she and Wes grow closer, Alex reappears, making her muddled heart even more so.

The most refreshing part about this book is that her explanations for life in the hunter/werewolf world actually make sense and that is not an easy task when dealing with a made up world so kudos to you, Heather!  If you haven’t checked out Dirty Blood yet, you should definitely pick it up!  Links to purchase are below. What do you have to lose?  Dirty Blood, the first in the series, is currently FREE in both Kindle and Nook formats!

Cold Blood by Heather Hildenbrand (Book 2 in the Dirty Blood series)

 

 Wood Point Academy is not at all what I expected.

For one thing, it looks like a cross between military school and Buckingham Palace. Everyone stares, the floors shine so bright you can see your reflection in them from a mile away, and no one smiles. Unless they’re kicking your butt in the process.
At least I’ve got plenty to take my mind off the fact that my psycho cousin, Miles De’Luca, keeps calling and declaring his love and promising to come for me just as soon as he’s destroyed anyone standing in our way. Wes isn’t going to like that idea. So between Miles, Wood Point’s evil welcoming committee, and the drill sergeant hottie trainer from hell, I just keep asking myself, how did I end up here? ” 

 So in the second installment of Heather Hildenbrand’s Dirty Blood  Series, Tara has been sent off to an elite boarding school for hunter and she is none to happy about it.  Basically, she is still kept in the dark about a number of things on both the hunter and werewolf side of things which is causing her to find solace with her new trainer, someone she feels a sort of kinship with.  Her family, as well as Wes, are still keeping her in the dark about so many things, who can she really trust?  I found this a great follow up to Dirty Blood.  Once again, the world building and writing is excellent. I also love her character development.  I find that I agree with every action Tara makes based on what she is told and not told.  There is only one instance I wanted to pull her aside and say NO!  You don’t want to do that!  I love the addition of Alex to throw a kink into the prophecy!  And he’s also a great character, I adore him! On the whole, a great addition to the series!  I can’t wait for the next book!

Dirty Blood by Heather Hildenbrand

Dirty Blood“I killed a girl last night. I did it with my bare hands and an old piece of pipe I found lying next to the dumpster. But that’s not the part that got me. The part that scared me, the part I can’t seem to wrap my head around and still has me reeling, was that when she charged me, her body shifted – and then she was a wolf. All snapping teeth and extended claws. But by the time I stood over her lifeless body, she was a girl again. That’s about the time I went into shock… And that was the moment he showed up.

And even now there are two thoughts that are so clear, they feel branded into my mind: One, Werewolves do exist, and two, I was born to kill them.”

I first came across Heather Hildenbrand in the anthology Losing It: A Collection of V-Cards.  I was intrigued.  The writing was great and the story drew me in so I bought the first in her Dirty Blood series, aptly named, Dirty Blood. Let me tell me tell you, it did NOT disappoint!!  I was pulled into Tara’s story from the beginning.  Sometimes, when you start a fantasy series, the world building doesn’t necessarily make sense and it takes a bit for the author to get their groove.  Not the case here!  The world building was spot on and believable.  I totally got caught up in the werewolf/hunter world and couldn’t wait for more.  Not only do you have fantasy, but romance and suspense as well! The whole package!  Check it out.  I promise! It won’t disappoint!

Wild Reckless by Ginger Scott

Y’all!!!  It is FINALLY here!!  No!  Not St. Patrick’s Day!  Wild Reckless, Ginger Scott’s new addition to the YA field comes out today!  So in celebration, I will post my review and teasers throughout the day.  Guys, you do NOT want to miss out!  Truly a great read!Wild reckless Review Tour

Ginger Scott’s latest foray into the YA genre is possibly her best yet.  Told from the point of view of Kensington “Kensie” Worth, Scott examines how one incident can define our life, and not exactly in a positive way.  From the time senior Kensie Worth moves to town, she is drawn to her neighbor, Owen Harper, but their interactions are far from positive.  Owen is the town hoodlum, at least that’s what the rumors say and he seems to relish in proving those rumors true to Kensie, with every chance he gets.  Kensie is never one to stand up for herself, always the dutiful daughter, the good girl; when she is around Owen, however, he brings out the fighter in her that she didn’t know existed.   Kensie is scared of the darkness that Owen radiates, however, one incident that shatters her life, brings them in to each other’s path more and more, and Kensie begins to see that there may actually be more light than darkness in Owen Harper.

I can’t tell you how much I absolutely ADORED this book, and I am a total Reed/Nolan junkie.  Kensie/Owen just surpassed that.  This is definitely not a light book.  The prologue jumps right in to that darkness that Owen is shrouded in and it doesn’t look back.  I felt this book was very realistic.  There is no part of this book that I did not enjoy!  It was well written, the characters are great, the plot flowed smoothly and had a realistic arc to it.  In this book Scott discusses mental illness, addiction and suicide and how the actions of members of our family can influence our own actions well into the future, and if we allow it, those actions can actually destroy us.

Dirty Blood series by Heather Hildenbrand

So I was introduced to the Dirty Blood series by Heather Hildenbrand when reading Losing It (read my review here).  Look for my reviews staring next week of all 5 books in the series, but here is info on the last book in the series.  Guys, this is a really great series!  And the first in the series, Dirty Blood, is available for free now so check out it!  You won’t be disappointed!!

How do you defeat an enemy that knows your every thought … even as you think it?

Broken Blood

I thought watching my Werewolf boyfriend get arrested for murder was the worst experience of my life. But then I was knocked out and dragged off to a cell of my own by the very people who were supposed to protect me from danger.
I thought being held prisoner in solitary confinement for weeks on end was the worst experience of my life. But then a visitor came, and I realized I’d been wrong all along. There are worse things than torture and death. Much worse.
He wants my blood. More than that, he wants to get into my head. To use my bond to control his army, to wipe the world clean of anything with dirty blood. I can’t let that happen, but if I don’t he’ll kill every single person I’ve ever cared about—beginning with my Werewolf pack.

The prophecy said I would have to make an impossible choice, but I must be doing this wrong—so far every choice I’ve made has only led to more pain and danger and death. Hunters are pitted against Werewolves and I’m alone in my war against Gordon Steppe. I can’t fight him off anymore; all I can do is try to keep him out of the important places. And I’m failing at even that.
