Oh my god. Oh my god. OH MY FREAKING GOD!!!!
POW had left me speechless and after Blood Rites I just can't catch my breath! My hands were glued to my kindle even when I didn't read. The whole Jacque & Fane drama aside, Jen and Decebel were just hilarious! I sooo recommend The Grey Wolves series to everyone!
Blood Rites continues right where POW left off, when Jacquelyn and Fane are getting ready for their bonding ceremony. We get to know lots of new characters and a flickering flames of a new

I'm going to start off by saying WOW! I wrote a review for POW and I thought that book was amazing! But this book is hard to write one for. There's not enough words to describe how much I love this book! Quinn throws you into an amazing world filled with laughter, heartbreak, and lots of love. I don't want to give give away any spoilers but you MUST read this book! I don't feel any review will give this book justice! I feel like a stalker watching her websites for more updates on the third book ...more

I love how according to Goodreads, only 2% of us readers disliked this book.

Flicking through the reviews, you only really see the fantastic, raving reviews about the awesomeness that is this book. I’ve read this book, ladies and gentlemen. I’ve studied it, bookmarked it and annotated sections of it.

There are heaps of grammatical and spelling errors.

A few major plot holes.

The most notable thing here would be: WHY THE CHICKENS WOULD THEY HAVE ALCOHOL IN A HOSPITAL?!

I was so pleased when looking through my friends updates, to find Blood Rites available! Needless to say, ... I promptly purchased it and glued myself to my nook! ;)

Blood Rites picks right up where Prince of Wolves leaves off. Just when you think that Jaque and Fane get though the worst of it, and are on their way to total bliss, ... in steps a new fur-ball. *snicker*

I promised to be honest, and so I am going to mention a few things I saw to be a bit unrealistic, in the second installment.

I'm unsure of how to put this in words? Except for how glad I was to see Jacque and Fane finally complete their bond and marriage. Just so glad they ended up together. However, this book's ending sets the stage for the next in the series, Just One Drop. I will definitely keep interest in this series.

Quinn Loftis, you gifted, comedic, twisted story-teller you, I am once again thoroughly impressed!! I picked up Blood Rites after devouring every page of Prince of Wolves (which is still making my heart race). That marked day two of my eyes being plastered to my iPad due to lack of willpower to tear myself away from this awesome series!

Blood Rites picks up right where PoW left off, with Jacque and Fane enjoying the excitement of their impending bonding ceremony. But little do they know, there is

After reading a number of beautifully written books in a row I can now pinpoint why I am dissapointed with books like this one.

***(By the way I read the entire series of Fifty Shades of Gray back to back in three days,.... then I read this one,... and then I read On the Island,.... just to give you a reference point from where I am coming from.)***


Don't get me wrong the book was interesting and I liked the plot. It is the way the story is told that is lacking for me. I yearn to be in the room wi

this, and the first book in the series, seems to be running parallel to "fifty shades of grey", in that everyone is raving about it, but i really didn't like it. there was nothing original in this book. one example: the fact that unmated wolves give in to the "darkness" and go mad without finding their other half, their mates. hello, christine feehan fans - does this sound at all familiar to you??

worse, it was just as poorly written as the fifty shades series. i spotted quite a few errors (both

Right now tears are coming to my eyes...



God almightly, just wow what a book. I have never been so scared/shocked/spellbound... so many emotions!



What a novel Quinn Loftis. I actually don't know what to say about this book. *Deep breath* Right I would definitely recommend you to read this - even if you've read the first one and didn't particularly enjoy it, this one is much better! There is so much more action and I liked how we got to understand the bond better from Vasile and Aline (Fane's pa

It really wasn't much different from the first book. Same plotline, yet another guy is after the MC and Fane goes all pocessive blah blah blah. If you thought MC and her BFFs were annoying in the first book, they were un-bearable in this one. How can anybody be knowingly / intentionally annoying is beyond me. I skipped pages to get past their constant bantering and untimely sarcacsm which was supposed to be "comic relief". Really how can you even come up with supposed funny stuff when your be ...more

I totally wish i had started this series earlier! Its amazing, i love the werewolves bond with their mates. Its sweet and funny. To bad people in real life don't have a pull that strong right away with the people they are meant for. And the family, friendships and all in this book are wonderful. This is how it should be.. I cant wait to get to the 3rd book and get to know Jen a little better..

Where do I start with Blood Rites? I think it's safe to say I freakin loved it just as much as Prince Of Wolves (and that's saying alot)!

It started off a short time after Fane fought and won against the alpha of a rival pack for his claim on Jacque. The next step for our beloved couple is the Blood Rites ceremony where they share blood and the bond is completed - where no one else can make a claim on Jacque. Unfortunately all is not smooth sailing as they (and I) would have liked, another wolf i

I'm obsessed. Already decided that this series has rightfully earned it's place as being one of my favorite paranormal series. It's downright amazing.

Quinn Loftis offers laugh out load funny novels that will grab readers with the witty humor and intense romance. I have been anxiously awaited this novel, and it was far exceeded my expectations. Jacque and Fane mesmerized readers with this heart stopping romance in Prince of Wolves. Book two Blood Rites starts up right when the first book ended, and will have readers jumping and running through this fast awesome read. The addition of another palpable romance adds to the complexity of this lovab ...more

You know those books you read that just make you wantto gush like a obsessed fan girl? The books that make you smile that sappy grin when you think of them? The ones where your heart does that little flip flop when you think of the ending?
This book is like the commander of all such books!
It was awesome! Truly, it was! It was fantastic, epic, intense, brilliant, heart wrenching, edge of your seat, heart pounding, pulse racing, totally sweet, impossibly perfect, one of a kind book!

I am so BLOWN away with this series. I am loving it!! Quinn Loftis has done a FANTASTIC job introducing us to a world of supernatural that is unique and familiar at the same time.
Blood Rites begins exactly where Prince Of Wolves leaves off and we are getting ready for the Blood Rites ceremony...you just know right then that something is going to happen, and WOW, do events happen. This go around, Loftis has opened us up to the minds of other characters in the book, not just Fane and Jacque's POV

If you read Prince of Wolves, you know you've been chomping at the bits to get some more of Fane and Jacque and Blood Rites does not disappoint! Things were left untied between Fane and Jacque in Prince of Wolves, but you get the much needed conclusion in Blood Rites. It is sensual, which we adults all know we wanted, but remains appropriate for the teen reader.

New conflicts are introduced with different characters, so we are left with the need to know what's going to happen. I'm just as excite

So seconds after reading Princes of Wolves I purchased Blood Rites. I know I'm pathetic but I just had to see what happens next to Jacque and Fane and I couldn't get enough of Jen & Sally's smart ass comments. I truly did enjoy this story almost as much as Prince of Wolves. There were more points in this book were I found my self sighing in frustration but those sighs quickly turned to laughs or gasp from shock. If you read the 1st book then you know the 2nd book will not disappoint.
Delphina
I truly loved this book! While I loved the completion of the original story arc, my favorite part was the introductions of the Jen/Decebel arc. I can not wait to see this play out! I love the Jen character!!!! I really feel the author hit her stride with this book and loved to see her writing grow! I will be buying her next book the minute it becomes available!

Even after a second reading of this book I am still in love. Quinn Loftis has outdone herself with this book. The romance, tragedy, and chase provided in this book would make just about anyone swoon.

Jacque and Fane have overcome the challenge and are getting ready for the blood rites the next evening until tragedy strikes and they are torn apart. Jen is falling hard for Decebel knowing she could never have a happily ever after with him because she do

WOWZA! Blood Rites is my new favorite book in this series. I really wish I had a video log of all the facial expression this book caused me to have, the main one being a totally goofy grin. I loved this book! I’ve read lots of werewolf books, while there are obvious similarities between them, The Grey Wolves series has its own special spark. It just seems to have a more animalistic quality to its werewolf lore.

As in Prince of Wolves, Jacque, Jen, and Sally are a unique trio of friends that stick

This isn't one of my favorites, I don't know why since I'm normally a werewolves #1 fan.

The writing style doesn't get me all wrapped up I'm the story- not that it isn't good, but it's not my style personally.

Other than that I think this was better than the first one a little more action and excitement in the story. I loved Jen and Decebel's relationship! It had me laughing my ass off!

So much happened in this sequel it was intense. In the car crash scene my heart was hammeringso hard against m

I just finished Blood Rites, the second in the Grey Wolves series by Quinn Loftis, and I absolutely loved it. I read the first in the series, Prince of Wolves, and immediately began Blood Rites, because I had become so engrossed in the lives of Jacque and Fane, and couldn't wait to see what happened next. It was the kind of book that made you want to crawl up in it and live there. The love story between Jacque and Fane was intense, romantic, with an element of danger that kept me turning page af ...more

I thought this book was very good. Although Jen and Sally are in the book, they aren't scene thieves as they were in POW. I had a few LOL moments towards the end of the book between the girls. Quinn did a very good job at keeping the story-line going without any stagnant areas as many books have these days. I enjoyed Decebel (sp?) with his hint of humor here and there. Quinn posted an excerpt of book 3 on her blog with a pic of a guy that is Decebel. Holy cow, that is exactly how I'd picture him ...more

This novel picks up the day after we left Jacquelyn and Fane in Prince of Wolves. She is on her way to the Blood Rites ceremony, but poor Jacquelyn, can't catch a break. There are some major hang ups along the way,including Jacquelyn's Dad,but you can't keep a good Fane down! This book is filled with the things we loved about Prince of Wolves, and more. I wondered if the hilarious bantering between Sally, Jen and Jacquelyn would be as funny this time around and Quinn Loftis didn't fail. The dial ...more
If it ain't good I don't read it !
Uhh where do I even begin

Quinn Loftis is a fuckin genius! How does someone come up with this stuff I mean you serious ? I couldn't come up with half the stuff in this book. And you know the part that gets me the most is
Wait for it.............

Wait for it .....

"Jacque ran blindly, her arms thrown out in front of her, desperately trying to keep herself from running face first into a tree. She felt horrible for leaving Cynthia but the thought of Logan getting his hands on her was just too much."

I read the first one of this saga, after i read a bad story about werewolves, so i did enjoyed the book a lot but didn't "devoured" it. But then i started reading the 2nd one, and i'm totally sold out, one of this books that are just so much fun to read, it does have it all, it made me cracked up (those 3 girls together are hilarious but Jen is AWESOME...for example,i was crying for laughing so hard of her own version of Futurist Lover),lots of intense moments and of course the romance (my heart ...more
