I really liked this book. First off, it was the first werewolf book I read where the main character was the werewolf and not a human in love with a werewolf. That alone intrigued me. I loved the relationship between Jaime and Sophie. The family dynamic was interesting. The novel was full of action and suspense and a juicy romance - all the makings of a great novel. I would have given it five stars except for some grammatical issues and the fact that I would have liked a bit more characterization with Sophie. But overall, it was a fun, quick read that I would totally recommend!”
Reign of Blood
on July 06, 2012
I had the privilege of receiving a free copy of this book from the author and I’m so lucky I did! Reign of Blood is an urban fantasy set in Vegas. The end of the world came in the form of a virus that killed off all the humans. All that remains are wild vampires. The only humans left are April, her mom and brother. Then April’s brother and mom dissapear and April begins her quest to find them.
I loved the way Purdy used words to set the mood for this book. It had a very dark feel to it. Her sensory details were right on and her descriptions transported me to April’s world. I’ve been to Vegas only once before but I loved how I could picture the casinos and the strip.
April was a very likeable character. Sure, she was rough around the edges and really tough, but that only made me like her more. I love female characters who don’t need a guy to rescue them. However, the guy in this book is one I would love to be rescued by! Rye is a true hero. He is sweet, yet tough and very good looking. I love the romance between the two.
Most of this book I read on the edge of my seat, scarcely able to breathe. So many fighting scenes, so much action and a lot of suspense! I loved this book. It sort of reminded me of Hollowland by Amanda Hocking which was a book I loved as well.
I give this book 5 stars and would recommend it to anyone looking for an action packed read!

I liked Howl, so I was anxious to get my hands on this book. It didn't dissapoing. I really enjoyed it. It starts off where Howl left off with Daniel gone and Sophie leading her pack. Then Daniel gets a letter delivered from Sophie's brother stating that he can come back to the pack. That's when things start to get interesting.
The chemistry between Sophie and Daniel was undeniable. I remember being on Team Jamie when I read Howl but Daniel really won me over in this installment.
I thought it was a quick, enjoyable read. It really had me flipping the pages to see what would happen next.
