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.
Oh. My. God. This series is absolutely amazing and I’m already jonesing for the next installment… if you haven’t picked it up, then you’re seriously missing out, and I highly suggest you start ASAP, especially as this third installment, Blood Bond, takes the cake! Of course, it always helps that our swoon worthy males, Wes and Alex, are back and feuding more than ever now that Tara’s home from school and the war between Hunters, Weres, and Hybrids is really heating up. And of course, Hildenbrand has done such a phenomenal job fleshing out the plot that this amazing story seamlessly flows together and holds the reader’s attention until the very end, when a massive, heart pounding cliffhanger drops the bottom out from under him/her. That’s right… it might kill you, but it’s so worth the read! All I can say is, one of our very sexy male characters is going to be pissed at the start of book four… royally.
But, back to the story. Hildenbrand has created some amazing characters that I’ve loved since the very beginning, and watching them grow and change as the story evolves and becomes more intense is possibly one of the most rewarding things for a reader. I love a good plotline, but I love real, vivid, fleshed out characters even more, and Hildenbrand knows just how to make them. I have to say that Tara has come very far over the course of the series, and she has had to make some tough decisions, but I think the toughest yet are in this third installment, and I don’t envy her. While I agree with her wholeheartedly, I don’t think I could do it. If faced with the same situations, I feel that I would not win out, and I respect Tara all the more for being able to make the difficult decisions, knowing someone’s life might hang in the balance. It’s just amazing!
And the hybrids? I love the hybrids. Well, let me rephrase. I love the idea behind the hybrids, and the mystery they bring to the novel, as well as the fear and heartache they evoke. A war is coming and I’m dying to know the outcome… pins and needles, people. Pins and needles. Five stars.
I receieved a copy of this novel from the author in exchange for an honest review.
