Interesting characters, great storyline.,
This review is from: Blood Lust (The Preternaturals Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
The cover on this is seductive, giving you a sample of what to expect. What the cover can't tell you is the myriad of characters it contains. Blood Lust is three novellas combined, comprising of Kept, Claimed and Mated. All three novellas flow together really well and the set of stories entwine with each other.
I thoroughly enjoyed all of the characters and all their guises. There's a healthy mix - werecat (cat therian), were, vamp, sorcerer and some humans. I love the storyline which seamlessly melded fantasy and everyday life. The stories are humorously told in places, with tangeable emotions from the characters.
There are some really well done hot sex scenes in this, so may not be suitable for all, the expectation of this is built up through the book and in each of the novellas. I like the explanation of why vampires don't have mirrors, this is without a doubt the best explanation I've read to date, it actually makes sense, and adds another element to vampires that doesn't appear anywhere else I've seen.
Blood Lust overall has similar themes in each of the three parts. A human runs from something (or someone) and meets their proverbial knight in shining armor....then has to trust in that person, whilst going against everything they thought they knew. My favorite out of the three is Claimed, which has vampire characters and humans as the main storyline, alongside characters from Kept. It's not an easy choice to make though, as they're all really addictive and I couldn't put them down once I'd started. I'm looking forward to reading Save My Soul...hope the wait won't be too much longer!
