Review for Blood Lust by Alexandra Ivy - 5 out of 5 stars!
SYNOPSIS FROM GOODREADS -
Blessed and cursed by their hidden abilities, the Sentinels have no choice but to live, and love, on the edge of humanity…
The Sentinel assassin, Bas, is facing the greatest challenge of his outcast existence. His young daughter, Molly, has been kidnapped. But her disappearance has brought the return of her mother, Myst, whom Bas has never forgotten--or forgiven.
Haunted by a vision that she's destined to create a weapon that will destroy thousands, Myst was never impulsive--until she met the irresistibly handsome Bas. But with the Brotherhood, the enemy of the high-bloods hunting for her, Myst had to stay on the run, to keep her child, and the world, safe. Now, with the most important thing in both their lives at stake, she and Bas must embark on a treacherous journey to save Molly, to confront the truth of Myst's fate--and to face their fierce desire for one another.
MY REVIEW -
This was great! Blood Lust was interesting till the very end! I haven't read the previous books, except for book 2.5, which I loved, so I'm am definitely looking forward to reading the previous books as well as any future books in this series; especially what happens with Wolfe and Lana, who we get some glimpses of in Blood Lust; I love forbidden romances, and I'm also looking forward to other books by Ivy. In Blood Lust, Bas' daughter has recently been kidnapped, but luckily she has been saved unharmed. The kidnapping has brought her mother, Myst, back into their lives, but Bas isn't very trusting of Myst because after having one night with Myst, she disappeared, only to return 9 months later to leave their daughter, Molly, with Bas, and disappear again. Myst has her reason for leaving her daughter, but Bas doesn't know them, so his opinion of her isn't exactly pleasant. I'm so glad the issue of why Myst left is solved rather quickly because I hate when people don't talk with each other, and aren't honest about their feelings, so I was glad that Bas and Myst didn't play games with each other. Myst has had a vision that she will be responsible for creating a "weapon" that will kill her people, and she doesn't want the enemies of her people to get their hands on it, so she has been on the run. After hearing about Myst's problems, Bas decides he needs to help her out, so he and some his friends, are trying to figure out more about Myst's vision; what the weapon is, and how can they stop it. Bas is great, and I liked Myst too, and they have a sweet connection. The romance was adorable, and the intimate scenes have the right amount of steam. I enjoyed reading about Bas and Myst's connection growing as they learn more about each other. The action scenes were great too, and I love Ivy's world building. I love reading books about warriors finding love, so Blood Lust was a terrific read for me, and Ivy does a really great job of drawing the reader into the story. I couldn't stop reading! That's always a good sign!
