Cold Blood by Heather Hildenbrand (Dirty Blood Series, book 2)

I have received an ARC copy of this book from the author in exchange of an honest review.

Small Blurb:


Wood Point Academy is not at all what I expected. For one thing, it looks like a cross between military school and Buckingham Palace. Everyone stares, the floors shine so bright you can see your reflection in them from a mile away, and no one smiles. Unless they’re kicking your butt in the process.

At least I’ve got plenty to take my mind off the fact that my psycho cousin, Miles De’Luca, keeps calling and declaring his love and promising to come for me just as soon as he’s destroyed anyone standing in our way. Wes isn’t going to like that idea. So between Miles, Wood Point’s evil welcoming committee, and the drill sergeant hottie trainer from hell, I just keep asking myself, how did I end up here?

My thoughts:

Cold Blood is a second part of the series, that I started to love. Tara is fun, a bit mean and snarky, but also she is honest and not judgemental. I love that about her. She is not condemning all Weres, just because she is a Hunter. She believes that not all of them are insane and want to kill everyone. She wants to help everyone, but being part of prophecy is leaving her  a bit stressed.

After Tara is shipped to her new school, she is not able to blend in. Being new student in a new school, where you don’t know anyone is tough, but being new in a school where everyone is better in combat and hates her because of what she is, is like a living nightmare. She tries to not be affected by hatred and mean  popular girls (even in paranormal school you get THOSE), but being away from home, friends and Wes is hard for her. She miss them. She miss him. And it doesn’t help that he is not returning her emails. There is no news from him. And she again feels like everyone just keeps everything from her. To not help her misery, her new, HOT, trainer is disgusted in what she is (at least that’s what she thought). But once all Hell break through and Miles is reappearing, claiming that they are destined to be together and rule the world, she learns that Alex is not disgusted nor he hates her. After their short moment, she feels guilty, but also confused about her feelings. After Wes decides to meet her suddenly, he is not showing up just to SEE HER, but has a motive and after that Tara is hurt, betrayed and sways even more toward Alex, who believes in her and knows she can handle herself, not like overprotective Wes, who is doubting her and her skills.

The whole situation gets even more complicated, with Miles and his secret project, and also uncontrollable rage that Tara feels.  What is worse…once she is overtaken by it she can’t remember a thing….

But I can’t forget about the supporting characters! Cambria and Logan! I love them, they are so funny and so different! Cambria is so funny and I just love that she just wants to stir trouble hahah Logan is that hot Nerd guy, with unhealthy unrequited love 😀 I really hope we will see more of them!

In this part characters are so much better developed. I loved first book, but this? This one is like WOW! I can’t wait to start the next part, which is waiting for me right now 😀
