Even the purest of bloodlines can begin in darkness.

Kory has never been afraid to walk down a dark, decrepit street at night for two reasons. One, she can see the villains lurking in the shadows, hear their footsteps as they approach, feel their malicious presence closing the distance. And two, on any given day or night she’s more dangerous than them. Or so she thought.

Loved snarky, kick-ass tough girl Kory. Her life has been hard, losing her parents young then living with and caring for her drug addicted aunt. She has had to get tough to survive and her life has made hers independent, suspicious, lacking in trust, full of attitude and quick with her fists. And I loved that about her. Luckily she also has a little extra something that makes her extra quick and strong and always able to see and hear those who hide in the shadows. Kory is unaware that this littl ...more

Kory’s life is as gritty and raw as any living nightmare can be. She has always known she is different, darker and more dangerous than those around her and she fears nothing, because she has the edge of preternatural ability to sense the evil that is lurking in the shadows. Kory is also a teen in crisis, orphaned, living with a drug-addict aunt, keeping it all buried inside, because no one can break down her defenses, until one day, someone did. That someone knows the truth of who and what Kory ...more

What can I say about Blood in Iron? How ‘bout it’s freaking amazing. Once I started reading, I didn’t want to put it down. The author does an excellent job of pulling the reader right in to the story and captures Kory’s thoughts and moods perfectly, while introducing the reader to a new, refreshing, and unique twist on the vampire / demon hunter mythology.

Kory’s life is anything but easy. Her parents died when she was young, her aunt became a drug addict, and Kory had to develop a tough outer s

3.5 Stars...I rounded up because I found myself really engrossed in the story.

Kory has always known she was different but it isn't until she meets Rex that she knows why. Apparently she is a descendent of some goddess tasked with fighting the demons who go around sucking the life out of people. Kory is very jaded and does not trust easily so learning these things about herself is not easy to take. And the fact that she has a major crush on Rex but he seems too straight laced to acknowledge the c

I downloaded Blood in Iron as a free book from Amazon. Personally, I give this book three-stars because I dislike Rex's character--he annoyed the heck out of me. But, because that is a subjective choice on my part, and I don't think all readers will hold his a$$holishness against him, I rounded my rating up to reflect my appreciation for a unique and engaging plot with some (other) good characters. Excellent ending, by the way, although the door is left open for more of the story.

Kory is one tough girl and not really a girl at that but a women forced to grow up a lot fast the most others her age. But her world get turn upside down once she met Rex and learns that the monsters of the night are real. Will she finally have someone to trust with Rex in her life or will he let her down like everyone else. Also will she make it in this new world unscreathed, and is their more to her parents secrets than she thought.

The story was pretty interesting, but some things bothered me about the book. Kory could be annoying at times, but I did like the development her character went through. I wish the author would expand on the world building. The reader just gets perks at the supernatural parts of this world.

Definitely worth the read! This book has a different perspective than most, and Kory's spunk and badassery is so very entertaining! Have to say that the relationship between Rex & Kory is really frustrating, but worth the pain in the end. And god... the British Twit... she's one of those characters you just love to hate 😂

3 stars because I felt like Kory was a bit bratty at times and that annoyed me. Yes, I know she's 17, it still bugged me.

Very dark, but very entertaining. Not something you see from a YA book very often. Makes you want to go and help her. Glad book two is already out. So I can go read it.

I ripped through this very quickly, loved the pace, characters and story line. I'm eager to read more in this series.

Many YA books have at their center a girl that could be anybody. A normal girl, one who doesn't stand out, but who has something extraordinary in her, and all it takes is the right set of circumstances for her to realize it. Blood in Iron's Kory is NOT such a girl.

Seventeen-year-old Kory is most assuredly not the kind of character that is easy to identify with unless we've been through some serious trauma. Orphaned at an early age, Kory now lives with her drug-addict mother, and who has been for

I am a big fan of YA supernatural romance so when I saw the description, it seemed like a perfect fit. After the first few chapters, I could not put the book down! I pretty much read the entire book in 2 days. The author paints a very vivid picture with extremely detailed descriptions and scenes. I was absolutely sucked into the story. I really liked the arc of the heroine Kory, there was a lot of growth and development for her character. And I’m a huge sucker for romance, so my favorite parts w ...more

Exceeded my expectations. Really like the main character Kory. She reminds me of Rose from Vampire Academy. Rex kind of reminds me of Dimitri. There are some similiarites between these two series, the dhampirs are ferrums and the vampires are demons. However, this does have it's own original & unique premise.

I'm obsessed with writing and addicted to reading--seriously. It's bad. When I'm not doing either of those things I'm working, watching various scary shows and movies, or spending time with my boyfriend who kindly puts up with my obsessions.

My favorite genres are anything paranormal, possibly fantasy, and definitely romance. There's got to be a little love. Or lust. A few of my favorite books are
