Blooded by Amanda Carlson

Jessica McClain, Novella

Synopsis: Jessica McClain was born the only female in an all male race. The only problem is-she’s no wolf. Called a curse, a witch and the Daughter of Evil by the superstitious wolves, Jessica decides to fight for her freedom, at age nineteen, the only way she can-in the ring.

When she’s brutally attacked right after her fight, is it enough to finally earn her freedom off Compound, or will she be forced to endure the hatred even longer . . .

review: I saw a lot of wonderful reviews about this novella and I have to say I was therefore more than curious to discover by myself how it was. So when I had the occasion to get into it, I was very happy to discover this new series. And WOW! I think it’s always difficult to write some short stories like that, we’re anxious to have a little too fast story, that we couldn’t have all the important points, etc. Well I can tell you this novella is amazing! It’s been a long time since I didn’t get into a story I was very curious to learn more about.
I think you know that, the read was really fast but it allows us to discover Jessica, a young woman despised by her whole pack, as many of them want to kill her, even if it means death in return. Everything is settled in this book and we can understand how it is for our heroin to live like that, her feeling of injustice, her will to leave this world and to start a new life. Some other characters are introduced to us like her father or even her brother and I’m so curious to learn more about them now. It’s the same for Nick, the friend of Jessica.
This short story is a nice introduction to a story that looks more than interesting. I confess I can’t wait to read the first book to learn more about everything. In those few pages, we can discover a light and fluid writing style with a great topic. Well I think you know now I really want to read more.

  1. I know what you mean about short stories – I often find they’re too short to really develop the characters. It’s great that this oarticular short story didn’t fall into that category! It souns like an interesting upcoming series! 🙂

  2. I’ve recently discovered novellas as great introductions to books – and I want to get my hands on this! I didn’t realise that there was a prequel one for this series – I will have to try to get hold of it especially if it is as awesome as you say!

    • I really liked it, and the first one as well! It was so difficult to have this one as it was only for the US people on amazon. But I suceeded!!! YEAH! lol, thanks to the Amanda’s patience.
