That’s how many hybrids survived the Hunter attack in the woods after I revived them with an injection of my blood. That’s how many followed me home to Frederick Falls. And that’s how many were now mentally linked to me through a blood bond.
Two days. Three valium. Fourteen hours of sleep.
That’s what it took to realize I wasn’t losing my mind as a result of the noise in my own head.
That’s how many days have passed since I almost killed Alex. That’s how many days I’ve sat by his bedside, waiting for him to wake up. To ease the guilt, to understand his betrayal, to remember the exact shade of brown in his eyes.
That’s my chances of skating by with Gordon Steppe and the Hunter Council. They want me for questioning. I’m afraid what’ll happen if I give them answers
Note: Blood Rule is the Fourth book in the Dirty Blood Series. There will be series spoilers in this review (not spoilers from this book) You can find out more about the series, Dirty Blood HERE
There are some series that you can write spoiler free reviews for and some series that are so action packed, and that you must read in order that it is nearly impossible to write reviews of the later books without giving anything away from earlier books, so I am going to make it easy for you. These first two paragraphs will tell new readers everything you need to know about why you should read this series and the following couple of paragraphs are for people that have started the series already.
If you have not read the Dirty Blood series you are completely missing out. Tara is a kick butt heroine who is called a dirty blood because she is part werewolf hunter and part werewolf. You must read the books in order because there are so many things that go on in each book and they each pick up right where the other one left off. I recommend binge reading them all. They are that good. There is a love triangle and I am now firmly on one side (even if I fear it may be the losing side.) but both guys are wonderful and I give my stamp of approval on this as a love triangle done well. Heather Hildenbrand can write paranormal romance so well. Her characters, her action, her suspense is all spot on. All in all this series is one of my favorites. And I am petrified to read the 5th and final book because I don’t want it to be over.
Ok if you are new to the series, you have been warned. There will not be spoilers from Blood Rule, the fourth book, but there will be mentions and spoilers from the previous books in the series. I can’t find any way around that. Read on at your own risk. Blood Rule picks up right where the 3rd book left off. It took me a moment to get my bearings because Heather Hildenbrand has created such an immersive world with so many complex characters that it was a lot to be dropped back into after 1 year reading break between books. Tara has taken control of the pack of hybrids and she is having a tough time with them. I felt for her more in this book than any I have read yet, because it really seemed like the weight of the world was on her shoulders every single page.
Heather Hildenbrand tore my heart in shreds every time I had to watch Tara visit Alex in the hospital and he remained in his coma. It was too much, and I’m so not touching the love triangle aspect of the story because I just know I will give too much away. I like Wes. I like Alex. I like Alex more. That’s all I’m saying. Like with the previous books, we get lots of answers and even more questions. I have no idea where Heather comes up with all the twists and turns and new layers of development, but she can write a book that will have you sitting so close to the edge of your seat, you will fall right off of it.
The fifth and final book in the Dirty Blood series just released, which is good because now you can read all the books one right after another. And trust me you will want to because they are beyond excellent and because they each have wicked cliffhangers. (this one included.) Here is a teaser from the fifth book, Broken Blood. I am sharing it because it features my wonderful Alex! Enjoy…and read this series!
