Blood Crave by Jennifer Knight

Saturday, August 11, 2012
Synopsis: Headstrong heroine Faith Reynolds returns in this thrilling sequel to the paranormal romance Blood on the Moon!

After surviving being kidnapped by a vampire, Faith would just love to focus on some alone time with her hot (though occasionally furry) boyfriend, Lucas. Unfortunately, with a vampire uprising on the horizon and her best friend, Derek, about to wake up and find himself transformed into a half-werewolf, half-vampire being without a beating heart, Faith has a few other things to take care of first.

Faith is not without help, in the form of her newfound powers of sensing people’s emotions and being able to influence werewolves’ actions, not to mention her begrudging but rather helpful boyfriend. Even so, convincing a werewolf packmaster to prepare for an epic battle may be difficult to do without solid evidence.

Lose yourself once more in the deliciously suspenseful world of werewolves versus vampires, otherworldly boys with deadly charm, and addictive, spine-tingling action and romance!

Vampire, hunters, and shifters. Oh My! Blood Crave by Jennifer Knight has everything you need for a great book. In the opening of the book we come across Faith (no she isn’t like the Faith from Buffy, sorry folks). A woman who has a very special gift that can tip the tides of a preternatural war. Along with her boyfriend Lucas whom is a werewolf, and her best friend Derek whom is, well I will keep that secret for now.  Werewolves protect the human race from the vampires that slaughter them. Yeah it’s cliché I know, there are thousands of books written on vampire/lycan wars, so much so some readers tire of them, but Jennifer Knight brings fresh ideas that renew this particular idea.

Faith’s gift as I said can tip the war in favor of the werewolves, the problem is no one can know about it. If anyone finds out it’s a death sentence. But Lucas trusts her and keeps her secret. But as you know secrets can’t stay secrets forever right? I guess you have to read to find out. I thought our three lead characters were great, there is so much that goes into these characters and their personalities. Though at times I wanted to punch Derek, strangle Faith, and just eat Lucas up. Yeah Lucas is my fave what can I say.

I haven’t read the first book in this series so when I started reading I was a little lost. But Jennifer Knight wastes no time in getting the readers updated on past events leading to the present. She does so smoothly and without taking up half of the new book. The flow of the storyline could be a bit dragging at times, but this is mainly due to character development. This book was a pleasant surprise for me, I found myself enjoying it the more I read, to give you an idea of how much I started this book at seven-thirty AM and finished it by three-thirty PM on the same day.

Yes it’s true I could not put it down. I highly recommend this book, if you want great characters and storylines, twist and turns, passion and betrayal, then pick this one up guys. I give this book a five start rating, for pure entertainment, and making me upset when I turned the last page and stared at it dumbly. Why stare at it dumbly? Because I was so into the story that I didn’t even realize I was at the end and wanted more.
