Blood Lust (Blood Series Bk #3)
T. Lynne Tolles
Blood Lust, the third book in T. Lynne Tolles engaging Blood series, is a fast read that simply carried me away. In this story, the vampire Devon, Darcy’s lover, undergoes an almost inexplicable personality change. He distances himself emotionally from Darcy and the rest of his family. The odd behavior begins with an unexpected Thanksgiving visit from his uncle, and continues to become stranger and more intense as the story evolves. When an old flame returns and Devon disappears with her, it seems that he and Darcy are kaput – everyone advises her to move on with her life. But Darcy stubbornly refuses to give up; she is determined to uncover the truth, whatever the consequences.
This easy read flowed smoothly and coherently. At first, I found Darcy’s intractability irritating, and I just wanted to head smack Devon. But, then I began to admire her single-minded determination and grit. Unfortunately, I have not yet read the 2nd book in this series but the author provided just enough backstory so that I had no problem understanding the underlying context. Most of the characters were familiar to me from the first book, Blood of a Werewolf. While somewhat predicable in the resolution, I am eager for the next installment in this Young Adult series that will also appeal to mature readers. I am still hopeful I will find time in my reading schedule to peruse Blood Moon, book two, before moving on to final two installments.
