My Friday Review: Cold Blood

Title: Cold Blood (Book Two of The Dirty Blood Series)
Author: Heather Hildenbrand
My Rating: 4 conch
Buy At: Amazon

Summary from Goodreads: 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?

The Review: In this book, we get to meet a whole new group of characters as Tara is shipped off to boarding school. And this isn't just any boarding school, but a place where she has to learn who she is...and fast. We don't get to see much of Wes in this one, and it made it hard for me to believe their undying love for each other. Especially with how quickly she is attracted to Alex. But that being said...I think I like Alex better. I guess I'll have to see where it all goes in the next book (which I'm reading now!). There is an interesting scientific twist with hybrids and I found that intriguing. Although at first I missed the characters from Dirty Blood, I grew to like these new ones and I'm anxious to see how they all connect. Yes, the wolves still talked but I think I'm getting over that now!

The Good: New well-developed characters that I hope will continue on with the story.

The Issue: The love triangle...not sure how I feel about it yet.

The Rating: 4 conch. Solid second book leaving me wanting more.
