Along with its extremely sizzling cover, Amanda Carlson's debut novel captures the essence of urban fantasy with a little extra spice! From the spunky teen readers may have met in the series' prequel novella, Blooded, to the strong, independent woman introduced in Full Blooded, readers will be beside themselves in appreciation for the newest tough-chick heroine.

Jessica McClain, assertive and a bit headstrong, is the first and only female werewolf. She left behind her life in the compound of superstitious wolves who believe she's the Daughter of Cain and took on a new persona for safety. With her first werewolf change every precaution her father, the pack's Alpha, put in place is obliterated and life becomes as dangerous as walking in unfamiliar territory. Fortunately, Jessica has friends and blood relatives in her corner. Her strong relationship with her father, her twin brother Tyler, best friend Nick, and other loyal pack mates adds to the story's appeal. With the hand Jessica was dealt, where everything could fall to pieces in seconds, its a pleasurable fact to know that there can be moments of warmth or camaraderie in the plot.

It doesn't take long to become obsessed with Jessica and her wolf. After Jessica's supernatural world is initially established there are so many exciting developments to follow that it becomes hard not to rip the book's pages from turning too fast! Urban fantasy is taken to an extraordinary level and only gets better with hardcore action and the expectancy of romance. Amanda's take on pack law, inter-species relationships, and supernatural lore is fresh and worth more exploring in the next Jessica McClain installment, Hot Blooded.
