URBAN FANTASY REVIEW: Jessica McClain 3: Cold Blooded - Amanda Carlson

Release Date: 08/10/13
Publisher:  Orbit


The time has now come for female werewolf Jessica McClain to honour the oath she swore to the icy Vampire Queen. With her mate Rourke at her side, Jessica is confident she'll be able to sail through this job without getting herself killed. What Jessica doesn't know is that the Queen has her own more dubious plans. But even that will be the least of her worries when the rebel faction of werewolves amasses for a brutal attack. Life has always been tough for Jessica, but now she's facing an all-out war ...


Ah, Jessica’s back and to be honest I couldn’t wait to see what Amanda would do with her after the epic struggles that have gone before. Needless to say the battle sequences within are more than satisfying, the inter-supernatural arguments wonderful and when backed with some cracking twists all round gives the reader a rollercoaster thrill ride that they’ll find hard to put down.

Back this up with great prose and of course an overall arc plot that will have consequences further down the line all round generates something that was a real pleasure to sit down with. The only downside to this book, was that I did feel a little cheated at not getting to see the rescue within. Perhaps that might be a book that Amanda would like to write at a later date and one to help flesh out her world a little more. That said though, you really should try her as for me, she’s absolutely fab.
