Hotblood was a very different Paranormal or maybe Fantasy novel? Not sure where to classify it...

First we have 17 year old Dariana who is a hybrid Wild/Cool we meet her at her twin brothers funeral, she is a shell of a girl who is living without her soul. Then we have Lewis who is a Hotblood. I wont even start to try to explain the races here, while it is a bit confusing to begin with because the author just jumps into the story like we already know this world it did not take me that long to catch up. My only constructive opinion on that part would be that the author needs a prologue to better explain the "Houses" and different species even some kind of chart to kind of explain the races and attributes.  Alright so now we have Lewis who is instantly drawn to this strange girl who has lived well past what she should have without having a soul. He follows her one evening and ends up stealing a kiss that leaves him changed. The other thing I would suggest is a more clear cut way to decipher whose perspective we are seeing. It switches up a little and it sometimes took me a few paragraphs to distinguish. We follow Dariana in her journey in getting her life back, finding out what happened to her, and possibly finding her soul mate. Her family is quirky and highly entertaining.

Hotblood is a unique world that I enjoyed thoroughly. Ms Whicker has an incredible imagination and I can't wait to find out more about the House of slide. I would have loved to see more of her Uncles Satan and Grim were truly some great characters.



I loved the cover for this one, it really caught my eye! I am guessing that is Uncle Satan on the cover.

Now I know you are all wondering what I think our lead characters look like if this were ever made into a movie! So here we go!

I think Dariana would be played by Mila Kunis...

And the oh so yummy Lewis would be ... David Boreanaz...
