Review quote

Action packed and one of those books that is hard to put down * ALL THINGS URBAN FANTASY * A fantastic addition to a series that has basically everything I want from my urban fantasy: Layered world-building, pulse-racing action, witty writing and characters that grow. If, like me, you were left missing Kelley Armstrong's Women of the Otherworld when it ended, this may just be the series to help you fill that void. I'm counting down the days until Cold Blooded * VAMPIRE BOOK CLUB * Full of heart-pounding action * THE NOCTURNAL LIBRARY * A roller coaster ride from start to finish that is not to be missed! * A BOOK OBSESSION * Rising star Carlson is rapidly building a rich world filled with intrigue, betrayal and hidden prophecy; all in all, this series second is a magnificent showing * RT BOOK REVIEWS *TOP PICK* *show more

Our customer reviews

In the first book of the series, Full Blooded, we are introduced to Jessica McClain. Jessica is an oddity - born the daughter of her packs Alpha, life should be good. But there is a problem with that - female werewolves aren�¢??t supposed to exist. And no one in the pack is willing to let her forget that she is a freak of nature. Once past puberty and not having shifted, Jessica thought she would live out her life as a human. She left the pack behind, starting a new life with a new name. Everything was going well, until her wolf decided it was time to surface. Hot Blooded, the second book of the series, picks up just after the events of the previous book. Told almost entirely on the road, with brief phone updates connecting Jessica to her father and pack at home, Jessica and her rather �¢??unusual�¢?? traveling companions, including two vampires loaned to her by the Vampire queen. It took me a while to read Hot Blooded for the publisher. I started to read the book, but soon realized that I would be much better served to read the first book first. It pulled the story together for me, in a manner which I wasn�¢??t feeling until reading the first. While there are things I didn�¢??t care for all that much. Jessica is a bit of a Mary Sue, overcoming apparently insurmountable odds on her own. What I did enjoy about the story is just how compassionate Jessica is for all creatures, including humans �¢?? a personality quirk that her werewolf brethren definitely are not happy about. Jessica is strong, intelligent and has her own mind, a rarity in the urban fantasy heroine tropes of the day, making her a perfect addition to the genre. I hope that she retains that compassion across the series. A pissed-off goddess, a bright yellow Humvee, a couple of werewolves, a couple of vampires on loan (and of course, vampires being vampires, there is a heavy price to pay should she live long enough to return), issues resolved and new issues opened and unresolved leads to an exciting story line which I expect much from in the future. I received Hot Blooded from the publisher in return for an honest review. I purchased Full Blooded on my own in order to keep the series in order and to gain a better understanding of the story more
