Title: Jessica McClain: Blooded

Author: Amanda Carlson

Genre: Urban Fantasy

Publisher: Orbit

Publish Date: April 11, 2012


Available at: AmazonBarnes and Noble


Jessica was born to the Alpha Werewolf of the Pack. Not only is she the only female, she’s human. She’s been called Daughter of Cain, a witch, a curse by superstitious werewolves. Now that  she’s nineteen she decides to take her fight to the ring. Hopefully her fight will win her freedom off the compound.


This short novella was action-packed. From the first moments in the ring to the last moments of the story, it was filled to the brim with violence. It’s not that it was gory, it was just heart-stopping thrills.

Jessica is fighting for freedom from the werewolves who are threatening her life at the Compound. Her father doesn’t want to let her go. She shows a level-head and a strength of will that I admire.

This is a wonderful prelude to the full-length book Full Blooded. You’re given a taste of their world and of the independence of spirit Jessica has. For such a short novella this was also a very satisfying read, although the teaser of Full Blooded at the end was a little hard for me to take. I’ll have to wait  for September for it to come out!
