Review: Blood Rites
By: Quinn Loftis
Release Date: November 19, 2011
Series: The Grey Wolves #2
With the challenge complete and the corrupt Alpha of Coldspring defeated Fane is now free to complete the mate bond with Jacque and perform the Blood Rites. Although the challenge is done, the affects are far reaching. Once it is known that Vasile, one of the strongest Alphas in the world is in America, specifically Coldspring, TX, there is one Alpha who cannot over look the significance of this. An Alpha who happens to share Jacque's DNA, but is this the one she needs to fear?
With her mom driving and her two best friends, Jen and Sally in tow, Jacque sets off for her happily ever after. She will soon realize a plan has been put in motion that will change her course and possibly tear her from Fane's grasp forever. It will take a wolf pack, her mother's love, her two best friend's unrelenting determination, her own will to survive and the undying love of her mate to bring her home. The question remains, if she fights, if she endures, who will she be, what will be left once she is back in her mates arms?
I don't know what it is about Quinn Loftis but she has bought me into her world and I just don't want to escape. The only thing I want to do is jump in the book and be part of the pack. This book again did not disappoint and I'm so happy I started reading this series.
Finally it's time to get the Blood Rites done, after their major ordeal in the previous book Fane and Jacque are ready to do this. But there is still someone who wants to meet her, her father and Alpha of the Denver Pack. He invokes his rite as an alpha to have his daughter with him until she turns 18 and then if she wants she can complete the blood rites with Fane. But something happens before they can even meet. On their way to the complete the Blood rites Jacques her two friends and mother are in a huge accident and both Jacques and Jen are very hurt.
Dillon quickly comes to her aid and he still feels the need to invoke his rites but seeing his daughter and her mate together he starts having second thoughts, but not his Beta, Logan. He begins to be obsessed with Jacques and believes that she should be with him so orchestrates this big plan to kidnap her and make her his.
It seems as if they just can't catch a break. During this whole thing Decebel, the Romanian pack's beta starts to show interest in Jen. With her spitfire and his caveman attitude their dynamic is something to watch and envy. I especially love their banter back and forth.
Also bought forth into this book is the sister of the Alpha leader who was defeated in the previous book. She is bitter that her Alpha is gone so she assists Logan in kidnapping Jacques only to realize that what he is doing is wrong and she needs to save this girl.
It's all very exciting and I just can't get enough of this book. There is something about the characters that literally bring joy to my life when I'm reading them. They make me laugh out loud and I don't think I've ever known three best friends like Sally Jen and Jacques before but I feel like I wish I could be their fourth musketeer.
This book was just as fabulous as the first book. I'm not too sure about the cover, but maybe it's supposed to be Logan or Fane wanting Jacques after all she is a red head. But overall must read, on to the next one!
