THERE’S NO PLACE LIKE HOME—EVEN IF HOME IS WHERE THE DEAD LIVE…
It’s the start of the fall semester, and a new crop of Acari and Trainees have descended on the Isle of Night. Watcher training has intensified, and Drew has a new roommate named Mei-Ling. But Mei-Ling harbors a dangerous secret that drove the vampires to abduct her against her will. Drew knows she shouldn’t get involved, but she can’t seem to leave her roommate to fend for herself.
Luckily, Drew has other things on her mind—like vampire Carden. A blood bond to a brawny, eighteenth-century Scottish bad boy tends to preoccupy a girl. And though she’s still figuring out what this bond means, one thing has become clear: She craves him in a major way.
But then bodies start turning up on the island. All the evidence points to the existence of a rogue vampire, and the sinister vampire Alcántara is gunning for Carden, even though Drew has proof that Carden had nothing to do with the murders. Now she has to find the true killer—without endangering Carden, Mei-Ling, or herself…
The Watchers series is one of my absolute favorites. Veronica Wolff has crafted a world that is so enticing – it’s brutal, intense, and there is one heck of a story in it. With each book, my love for the series becomes more and more! Blood Fever was the best book in the series so far and now the long wait for book 4, The Keep, begins!
I just love the characters – Drew is such a badass, strong heroine, which I really admire. Drew’s new roommate, Mei-Ling, was such a great character! You expect her to be on the weaker side, but boy can she dish out some verbal insults in such a coy way at all the ones who would cause her trouble. I loved seeing more of Carden in this book – he is such an intriguing character who I never know exactly what he is up to. He is probably my favorite character of the series now and boy is he hot.
The plot in Blood Fever is intense, there is no other way to put it. There is no one part of it that is predictable in the least. I sat here and read straight through Blood Fever is 2 hours, hanging on every word. There were some pretty hot scenes that were quite awesome. Blood Fever allows readers to experience a bit more of the actual Isle of Night itself and see a bit more about it, which was neat.
Veronica Wolff goes out with a bang with one of the most intense, all the feelings kind of endings. My mouth quite literally dropped open as I sat there flipping the pages looking for more story, only to find an excerpt of the next book.
Blood Fever by Veronica Wolff is a book you do not want to miss. It is one of the best books I have read recently and I am eagerly anticipating The Keep‘s release.
