Review: Blood Fever by Veronica Wolff
THERE’S NO PLACE LIKE HOME—EVEN IF HOME IS WHERE THE DEAD LIVE…
It’s the start of the fall semester, and a new crop of Acari and Trainees have descended on the Isle of Night. Watcher training has intensified, and Drew has a new roommate named Mei-Ling. But Mei-Ling harbors a dangerous secret that drove the vampires to abduct her against her will. Drew knows she shouldn’t get involved, but she can’t seem to leave her roommate to fend for herself.
Luckily, Drew has other things on her mind—like vampire Carden. A blood bond to a brawny, eighteenth-century Scottish bad boy tends to preoccupy a girl. And though she’s still figuring out what this bond means, one thing has become clear: She craves him in a major way.
But then bodies start turning up on the island. All the evidence points to the existence of a rogue vampire, and the sinister vampire Alcántara is gunning for Carden, even though Drew has proof that Carden had nothing to do with the murders. Now she has to find the true killer—without endangering Carden, Mei-Ling, or herself…
BLOOD FEVER is an epic follow-up to the first two exciting books in the Watchers series. Wolff has proven herself with frightening vampires with ulterior motives, but in BLOOD FEVER, she shows that not all vampires are evil. Sexy Scottish vampire Carden will have girls swooning and vying for him and Drew. The stakes are raised even higher in BLOOD FEVER, so if you were a fan of the first two books in the series, this one is right up your alley.
Drew is back in BLOOD FEVER and as fierce as ever. Her strong fighter spirit doesn’t let anyone get her down, no matter how hurtful their words or punches. I have tremendous respect for Drew and in all honesty, she’s someone I would aspire to be if I lived in a world like hers. Let’s just say I am thankful that I don’t though, because she goes through some seriously scary trials that had me shivering in anticipation of the outcomes.
I thought that I loved Ronan, but I have to say that Carden has surpassed him in all ways after reading BLOOD FEVER. Ronan barely has a chance to come on the scenes with this head strong vampire determined to be in Drew’s life. Oh, and they’re bonded so that just makes their relationship that much steamier. I think it is safe to say that Carden has won me over, no matter how yummy Ronan may be.
There is so much action in BLOOD FEVER that you won’t have a moment of peace before the next problem arises. Of course, Drew kicks some serious booty in this one and while I won’t say who, I will say that I was extremely happy that she finally got her revenge. The romance is as steamy as every in BLOOD FEVER, especially with Carden. WOW, he and Drew sure create some serious sparks when they’re together, no matter the circumstances. I can’t wait for more of Carden, that’s for sure.
If you haven’t yet read this series, you are sure missing out! It may appear to be just your average vampire YA on the outside, but on the inside it is so much more than that. So take a chance on this series. I can guarantee you won’t regret it!
