In this day and age I feel the need to be specific. I am not a fan of the Twilight Saga. I read the novels and deeply regret my wasted time. But, that does not mean I do not like the Paranormal. I love vampires the kind of Bram Stokers 'Dracula' an Anne Rice's 'Interview With a Vampire'. I am also fond of Werewolves, very fond I should say. So when I was referred to 'Hyblood', it is needless to say that I was both apprehensive and curious.

I am happy to say I was not disappointed.

'Hyblood' is a c
I was pleasantly surprised by this story. I enjoy stories with vampires, werewolves, ghosts, the whole shebang, but with the current fad of supernatural characters are almost solely weak and sexual, rather than strong and predatory. Luckily, Hyblood doesn't fall into that trap.

Gaspard is struggling against his nature, trying to hold on to who he was while not being so incredibly broody as to resemble Eeyore. He keeps going, doing what he thinks is right. Jocelyn is an actual individual, rather t

The author gave me this book as a gift few months ago *scoffs* and I'm really sorry that I just finish this book right now. Thank you, Miss Budd! I owe you one! :)

When the time is come, both of them has to leave made their own life. Looking for a job, they meet Jocelyn. Beautiful girl who made Gaspard's tummy churn. She offers them job at her house and t

I hate giving critical reviews, but this is going to be one. This is a nice young adult paranormal book. Would not call it a romance because the interaction between the hero and heroine is limited in first part of the book. It was slow at first but this is the righting teams first effort and I see potential in a follow up. The vampire hierarchy was not as well defined as the werewolves. I would have liked to have known what time period we were dealing with; because at one point, when gasoline i
Reeled in by the symbol on the cover, I decided to pick up Hyblood in the hopes that I would not be disappointed - I was not.

'Hyblood's main Hero is strong and decisive of his immortality and the life he plans to lead, and the Heroine is not controlled by her feelings for the Hero as we so often see in many YA novels now-a-days. The Villain was both amusing and a little terrifying. I'm happy to have given this book a chance and look forward to what happens next (so many questions to be answered!
Loved it!!! I was a bit skeptical to read it at first with all the vampire hype around lately, but a friend said they loved it and said I must read it and I'm so glad I did. The characters are well thought out - both good guys and the bad guys - and you can't stop reading for even a minute without wondering what the crazy vampire Lucas will do to Gaspard next! Im very much looking forward to the 2nd book. Can't wait!

I have been asked many times over the past few months about the music behind the writing of 'The Wolva Trilogy'. Set up in the link below, I have compiled a list of songs that have helped inspire and drive the writing behind 'Hyblood'. As the second and third books are finished and published as well, I will provide links to their respective songs as I am doing here for the first book. (The second and third installments already have work-in-progress play-lists that you are more than welcome to se ...more
I was pleasantly surprised with this book, being that it was a R2R and some of them can be a real chore and completely put me off of them for a while. This book did the opposite.

It was a little slow to begin with since it is one of a series, and Stephanie took her time introducing the characters. This is one thing I love to have in the first book of a series. Once the story got going it took off like a jet.(view spoiler)

It took me a while to get into Hyblood . I think it started to pick up a little over halfway through the book . It wasn't a fast read but maybe because it's just the beginning of the trilogy .
Overall the characters were interesting and the twist at the end left me intrigued. I may read the next book but I'm
Not sure If the writing style is necessarily my cup of tea . I think it will appeal to others though
Enjoyable. Will be keeping an eye out for the rest of the series.
