Disclosure: Life as Leels (owner of Leels Loves Books) received a free ebook copy of this book in exchange for my review.
I very much enjoyed this book. It had a very familiar feel about it – like I had read or watched something similar – but I still have not been able to put my finger on what it was that I am thinking of. It semi-resembles Twilight but Bloodmark is very werewolf based. No vampires… per se.
The book is based on a werewolf teenager who has been kept in hidden, although she doesn’t fully know that or know why.
She is kept as an outsider of her family (and her pack) and a lot of the traditions are very old fashioned (or worse).
She is given the opportunity to live in the modern world and I think I really got sucked in at this point because things were so different for her and we got to learn more about the author’s depiction of how werewolves function.
I lost a lot of sleep over this book. I stayed up all night one night reading and finished it the next night leaving me with way less than 8 hours in a combined of 48 hours!
If you like the paranormal world of werewolves and the such; you will thoroughly enjoy Bloodmark.
