Genre: , , ,
Pages: 400

Werewolf princess Ashling Boru's eighteenth birthday is only a year away, which means that she only has twelve months before she is claimed and fulfills her prophecy to unite the packs and lead her people. Her father decrees that her four suitors must fight in the Bloodrealms, the werewolves' ancient underground fighting world, and the winner will have King Boru's choice to win Ashling's hand. The wolf laws are rigid and barbaric, and Ashling's illicit love for Grey, if discovered, will mean his death. But when Ashling and Grey get trapped in the blood-soaked depths of the Bloodrealms, they find ancient horrors far greater than Ashling's father's rule.

With betrayal around every corner and old nemeses set to destroy Ashling, she is more divided than ever between the destiny she didn't choose and the love that she did. To make matters worse, her decision will not only set the course of her future, but the future of her entire race.

my-review

I loved Bloodmark (book 1 in this series) and was looking forward to Bloodrealms.

Bloodrealms started right where we left on in the first book and I felt it was faster paced than the first one. I will say that this is not a stand alone book. You will be quite lost if you don’t read Bloodmark first. The first book provides many characters, background, and the start of the relationship between Ashling and Grey – something you do not want to miss!

I am not a traditional gal in any sense and with “sides” pitted against “sides” in regards to Ashling’s future; I am easily frustrated. I found that Bloodrealms evoked a lot of emotion within me – something I also felt in the first book in the series and I would not be surprised to find in the third book too.

Bloodrealms was slightly darker and had more violence than Bloodmark but did not change my opinion of the book or the series. This is by far, one of my favorite series this year and definitely ranked at the top of favorite paranormal/fantasy series.

If you enjoy the fantasy/paranormal of werewolves – you will enjoy this series. (It does remind me of Twilight a bit, but there are no vampires. The term ‘bloodsuckers’ in this book does not relate to vampires, but to those who are destined to kill werewolves.)
