Hiya Novas! Today I will review my 2nd book on the blog called Dark Blood by Christine Feehan. The first review was a Thriller called “Concealed in Death.” You can read my first book review by clicking here. I actually started reading this book because I wanted to get a sense on the Fantasy style of writing. This book gave me great insight and tips to carry on over. On to the Dark Blood review!
Title: Dark Blood

Series: Dark Series #26
Dark Blood is a Fantasy book that follows the journey of an elite hunter known as Zev. This is my first proper fantasy novel so I wasn’t quite sure on what to expect, but I was pleasantly surprised by the outcome. In a world filled with different species hiding amongst humans, you can never know who to trust. Zev is an elite hunter and alpha Lycan who’s main job is to protect the Lycan council and follow their ever wish. Zev is one of the best, he’s extremely fast, intelligent and one of the top hunters in the land. When he is injured in battle, Zev learns something about his lineage that will change his world forever; he’s Dark Blood. But what does that mean? How can Zev use this information to help stop a brewing war between the Lycans and Carpathians? That’s what he and his group of close knit friends intend to find out!
The setting takes place in the forests and caves of a distant land. I know that they cross through Russia and real life locations. I really liked the pace and the tone on the novel. You are reading mostly from Zev and his lifemate Branislava’s point of view.
I really love the characters and the author did a fantastic job positioning Zev in the story. He is my favorite character and I’m not usually one to gush over a main character. Zev is the true definition of “Alpha” in every sense of the word. The action was fantastic and appeared in mage battles, physical battles and primal fighting between rogue packs. The antagonist is n revealed until about half way through, but it’s worth the wiat. The build-up and anticipation between what’s going to happen next had me eager to turn the page. There are many suggestive and descriptive adult scenes so it is not recommended for kids under 17. I’m definitely going to read some more books in the “Dark Series.”
Thank you for reading my quick thoughts on finishing Dark Blood! What are you curently reading? Have you read any books in the Dark Series? Let’s talk books!
