Review quote

It's intense action start to finish and I'm ready for more * HAPPILY EVER AFTER READS * Cold Blooded is the third book in Amanda Carlson's Jessica McClain series and this one people is my favorite to date . . . Really cool . . . Red Blooded is up next sometime in 2014 and I can't wait to read it * YUMMY MEN AND KICK ASS CHICKS * Cold Blooded was a fun, action-packed book with the right amount of romance, adventure, and twists to keep me firmly planted as part of the Pack * SHE WOLF READS * If you haven't tried this series, I highly recommend it. It is great for people who like strong female leads, werewolves and a lot of action. If you've enjoyed Kate Daniels series by Ilona Andrews, The Hollows by Kim Harrison, Downside Ghosts by Stacia Kane and Mercy Thompson by Patricia Briggs, then I think you'll love this book * HOT LISTENS * I've fallen in love with Jessica, and her loyalty to those around her and willingness to do what it takes to keep them safe. I'm thrilled to be following her as she figures out this whole werewolf thing . . . And yes, it is as hot as you were likely expecting it would be * ALL THINGS URBAN FANTASY * Cold Blooded starts with a bang and the action keeps coming right up until the final pages. Jess now faces her most perilous journey yet, where the stakes have never been higher. I can't wait to see what's in store for her next * VAMPIRE BOOK CLUB *show more

Our customer reviews

An explosion hits the parking lot - a spell from the Sorcerers sent for Jessica. On the run yet bond to find her missing best friend, Jessica heads to the heart of the witches coven, with the most powerful witch in the country - Tallulah (Tally) Talbot. What Jessica learns there sends her on her run to help her father. Tally has an oracle that sees Jessica and her family and friends - good news and bad news. Away Jessica goes, hoping for the safety of her best friend Marcy and James and to help her father, while the Sorcerers and Demons follow on her tale working together to find her. Every Sect is after her. Jessica runs head first into the Vampires, who want her for their own reasons, looking to barter for protection. An explosive set of happenings, from action to love, all in one place here! Each page is full of new information and action. Jessica is one of a kind, in more ways than one, and draws people of all Sects to her - in one way or another. We start EXACTLY where Hot Blooded ended! With Jessica and Tally at Jessica's office, yet in the bushes now. So much happening here! But well organized and all is handled by Jessica as she goes. Much from the first two books lead to here. James and Marcy missing The Demon court date The vampire "party" Rourke!! *sigh* Every Sect after Jessica her powers and what she is the Southern pack and her Dad. All collide right here! Jessica's been having it rough. Supes are out to get her, attacking her at about ever turn. And it's taking all she has to not run off to find and save Rourke, but she knows she has to be prepared and get information first. There are rumors flying of Jessica and what she is and what she'll do. Each has more information about the prophecy. And maybe Jessica is what it says...maybe not? The supernatural world is all shaken up. Sects are teaming up with each other, the one thing the DO NOT do, all because of Jessica. Jessica's group is together because of her. Others are teaming up, to stop her. The supernatural world is changing. Including wolves as someone is messing with them. We have all our favorite characters once again. We see them all! Rourke is just plain amazing. Wow. Do he and Jessica finally get their moment? Well, you'll have to read to see. *giggle* We still have Tyler and Danny at Jessica's side helping her, along with her mate Rourke. We have Naomi and Ray as well. Oh, what we see of Ray. There is something different about him, Naomi can't control him. But just wait until you see what happens to/with him. Yep. You have to read for Ray. So, we've been waiting to learn more of Rourke. What he is, and oh so much more. Yep. YOU HAVE TO READ THIS ONE! Everything we wanted, and much more, from Rourke. You HAVE to read this series in order. You don't have to read the Novella, but why not? It's one of the BEST novella's I've ever read, and I read lots. The ending is a touch of a hanger. The story line of this book ends, but there is new adventures started at the end of this one. Amanda knows how to hook her readers and make them salivate for the next. This series is high octane. If you love action packed, fast paced, heart thumping Urban Fantasy reads, this one NEEDS to be the TOP of your list. ASAP! There is even a touch of romance as a bonus. I don't know if I've mentioned it enough in this review (sarcasm) but you need this one. ;)show more
