In the final book of the My Blood Approves series…

Alice has moved on and is settling into a new country with a new career as a vampire hunter. Finally, she’s created a stable, happy life for herself and her family, including her boyfriend Jack. Or at least as stable as her life can be, especially with a dangerous vampire cult resurfacing.

But everything she’s worked for is

I can't wait for this book! This has been the longest book to wait for. I wonder is she's writing it now or working on the Watersong series instead.
Oh, please be working on this!! I felt so bad for Peter in the last book. Team Peter all the way!!

To all the fans of Peter: he is a massive arrogant self absorbed jerk, a poncy twat and a bloody pain in the arse!!! His charachter is ridiculously underdeveloped and ghostly, and if in Swear Alice ends up with him by some miracle, I hope this book never comes out!!!



Thank you, the ever loyal members of team Peter&Alice, who had the guts to send hate mail to Amanda Hocking as well as a crapload of messages about how unsatisfied you were with the course My Blood Approves had taken (I mea

I was so happy to finally get the ending to the series. It was bittersweet and basically everything I wanted. I spent most of the series hoping for this but then it made me sad. I love Jack and Alice and it was nice to see things more wrapped up for them. Hard to talk about it without spoilers.

I think I need to clarify the following things. My problems with writing Swear aren't because a lack of ideas, writer's block, or because

I had no idea there was gonna be another book to the series :) I'm glad there is. I really want it to be Alice and Peter together! He did have her first then Jack took her. Don't get me wrong, I loved Jack but I loved Peter more. 2 more months left!! <3 <3 Peter&Alice all the way

IT HAS ALWAYS BEEN JACK AND THE AUTHOR ALREADY TOLD THAT JACK WAS THE MEANT FOR ALICE!!! I'm soooo happy that i could start crying in this moment.

Peter and Alice all the way! I love Jack, but Peter sends chills up my spine and makes me want to steal him away and keep him for myself(: I don't care if his character is lame or if he's an ass sometimes(: he loves Alice more than he does Elise and that's saying a lot considering he was depressed the whole time over Elise's death until he met Alice. I think Jack is an ass for breaking the bond between her and Peter, Peter didn't deserve that after losing Elise. I love Peter to death<3

I know this book may never come to being-- I am lost without the ending to Jack's story-- well, Alice and Jack-- I get it, people love Peter-- but he already has his Elise... anyways-- Amanda is terribly busy with her success... so if it never comes to head-- at least I can rest in the know that Alice chose Jack, it will always be Jack. Think I'm actually going to start reading from the beginning again...

I thought the books were great. I read them 3 (count it) three times. I wanted Jack to be with Alice at first, but what others are taking into consideration is that Alice has grown up quite a bit. She knows the rules of the game now. She knows now that there is usually one mate for the vampires.She loves Jack because they grew together through their friendship and her youth. However; she was meant for Peter and he was to blind to see it. He had been holding on to his 1st love so long he had forg ...more

Sellout!!! Ms Hocking had no problem banging out this series before being signed with a legit publishing company. They clearly weren't interested in picking up this series so there comes the blog in November saying her heart isn't in it to finish book 5 (read: there's no paycheck for this one). She's a big disappointment. This was a good series minus a few misses but now I'll never read another Hocking book. Quite frankly I found the Trylle Trilogy to be painful to get through with awful charac ...more

According to Hocking's blog she is having some difficulties writing this last book. I recently found this series and have spent the last week reading it. I am now very disappointed to learn I will have to wait who knows how long to have some closure with Alice and her story.

213 ratings and an average of 4.2 stars for a book that hasn't been released yet?

Amanda Hocking, you are one impressive lady. And I envy you. A lot.

Release date November 9, 2016!! This makes me very happy!!
Why is it that the first 4 amazing books came out all in 2010, and THIS 5th book is taking so goddamn long!? >:(
I swear this book taking over 2 years to write better be worth it.

U can TOTALLY make it work!!!
I mean I was reading other people's comments and I realise that Jack could be better off as a friend!!
And a comrade here has a very good point, if Jack finds the one he's "meant" to be with, then dahell happens to Alice??
He is selfish for breaking the bond between Alice and Peter and who the damn cares that Jack found her first.
Team Peter all the way!!!

On Amanda hocking's Blogspot she releases the gist of swear.

Majority will not be impressed with the shortness of it and the ending of the love triangle because I know I wasn't and i'm sad this book may never come out.

If it does though, i'm not really sure how i'll respond to it.

I love Peter to death but I really don't care who she's with as long as this series is finished.

WHEN THE HELL IS THIS GOING TO BE OUT? Ever? If not this book should just be erased from GR.

I don't believe the author is ever going to write this book. I'm beginning to think Amanda hocking is a tease not to finish this series. She's dumped these characters and doesn't care to ever return to them, in my opinion. She's too busy making money on the new stuff...

( stars. Two years ago I spent less than a week reading the My Blood Approves series by Amanda Hocking. I had to buy the fourth book on Smashwords because that’s the only place I could find it.(It’s on Amazon now) When I was done with that, I realized that she hadn’t really ended the series and these books had been out for several years with no end in sight. I did my research and found that she probably wasn’t going to end it. To be honest, I was a bit mad. So when I saw that ...more

I hate writing bad reviews, but someone has to.
I used to love Amanda Hocking, she was a creative writer who wouldn't take no for an answer. She imagined beautiful strong but vulnerable characters who you could watch grow. So it's said when you have waited for years to read this book. Not just sad but very aggravating as well.
I'm not a grammar police or spelling, simply because if the story is good enough you don't notice and I'm not great at it either, but I also don't get paid for my grammar,
