REVIEW: Blood Rites by Quinn Loftis


With the challenge complete and the corrupt Alpha of Coldspring defeated Fane is now free to complete the mate bond with Jacque and perform the Blood Rites. Although the challenge is done, the affects are far reaching. Once it is known that Vasile one of the strongest Alphas in the world is in America, specifically Coldspring, TX, there is one Alpha who cannot over look the significance of this. An Alpha who happens to share Jacque's DNA, but is this the one she needs to fear?

With her mom driving and her two best friends, Jen and Sally in tow, Jacque set off for her happily ever after. She will soon realize a plan has been put in motion that will change her course and possibly tear her from Fane's grasp forever. It will take a wolf pack, her mother's love, her two best friend's unrelenting determination, her own will to survive and the undying love of her mate to bring her home. The question remains, if she fights, if she endures, who will she be, what will be left once she is back in her mates arms?

Ok, first I want to say that the book needs a little editing. Sorry, but it’s a fact. Other than that, my biggest complaint is that there were a couple inconsistencies such as what knowledge is known by whom and when. However, those inconsistencies and the editing issues are NOT a big enough problem to detract from the story itself.

With that all out of the way, I can now say that I loved this book! I have an infant so you can imagine that sleep is precious. I stayed up until one in the morning anyway unable to put this one down! It held me completely enthralled and I just couldn’t let it go. It doesn’t stand very well on its own, so not only do I recommend reading book one first – I recommend reading the books back to back. I didn’t and it took its toll at the very beginning, but I soon got back into the groove again.

The good guys are all loveable, and the villain is truly monstrous. My emotions were all over the place. I was laughing frequently and smiling at Fane and Jacque, then crying later. Some of the events are heart wrenching but also authentic feeling (as much as they can be in a paranormal world). *Mild spoiler alert.* There’s a captivity scene that is awful (though could be worse), and its emotional damage felt so real…

Bottom Line:

If you’re looking for a an exciting series containing alpha werewolves and a soul deep love, with comic relief in the form of three snarky teenagers, check out this awesome series!
