Review: Dirty Blood by Heather Hildenbrand

Book One

I killed a girl last night. I did it with my bare hands and an old piece of pipe I found lying next to the dumpster. But that’s not the part that got me. The part that scared me, the part I can’t seem to wrap my head around and still has me reeling, was that when she charged me, her body shifted – and then she was a wolf. All snapping teeth and extended claws. But by the time I stood over her lifeless body, she was a girl again. That’s about the time I went into shock… And that was the moment he showed up.

Now, all I can do is accept the truths that are staring me in the face. One, Werewolves do exist. And Two, I was born to kill them.

Review: This book was a great read! It was kind of gritty. Tara is a great character. This story is great for hunter and Werewolf lovers alike. This isn't your traditional were-story. Imagine if you just found out you were part of two sides and both considered the other evil. Dirty Blood...Relationships are formed. People die and new enemies rise!!!

Book Two

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?

Review: Tara gets shipped off to a special hunter school to protect her. Wes is left to continue leading the cause. She meet a couple people who instantly become her friends at the very strict school. She gets a tutor to help with her fighting schools, Alex. They don't see eye to eye. But could he be a love interest? Can Tara and Wes have a relationship with Miles, George, and Alex in the Mix?

Book Three

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.

Review: This is another great book with non stop action. So much information for Tara. So many changes. I was totally blown away.
Is Wes going to far in protecting Tara? What's happening to George? What's happening inside Tara? So many questions and changes.... This was the best book by far. I'm completely invested in these characters and cant wait till the next book.

Review: I know I said the last was the best by far but each book just keeps getting better. I love these characters. Yes, even the not so nice ones. I think in this book Tara is starting to become who she truly is inside without being influenced by others. Again the story is action packed and full of decisions and information that Tara has to use. I really like Tara and Wes together but can they keep it together? Will Alex make it? Can the pack be protected? We see more glimpses of Tara's friends in this book too. At the end I was not ready to be done with this book. Is there more? I need more!
