But it's not easy being queen. Ashling's guardian, Baran, has been captured by the Dvergars, a family of evil wolves who will stop at ...more
Trying to fit into a world where those far more experienced and much older must follow her lead, must wait for her commands, Ashling relies on gut instinct and the advice of t ...more
So, Ashling has now assumed her place as the Crimson Queen. She’s been to hell and back. And now she has to go back yet again. But she won’t be alone. Her pack will be with her. This is the final battle. The one that prophecy foretold. Everything hangs in the balance.
This will be kind of short as there’s no way to talk about a book this far into the series without those nasty spoilers.
I adored this last book. So much bloody ...more
'Bloodmoon' just didn't appeal to me as much as I hoped it would. I love werewolf tales and shapeshifter stories, but the 'Bloodmark Saga' just didn't do it for me. I felt like it wasn't as potent as it should have been. It didn't touch my soul. It didn't make me laugh or cry – or better yet, angry and thinking of throwing the book against the wall. It didn't make me hate-love it or...more
This final book in the Bloodmark Saga was, without a doubt, my favorite. Instead of focusing so much on the romance, this time the story centered on the battle between Ashling’s pack and the Dvergars. That led to an ultra-exciting ending to this paranormal trilogy!
It had been a very long time since I read the first two books in this series, so I did a super quick skim-read of the first two books, and I’m certainly glad ...more
If you have seen my review for the first and second book you know that I had some issues with them and that they took away quite a big part of my enjoyment. This book is the final book in the trilogy and I'm happy to say that I enjoyed this book. I read this without feeling slumpy and the things that I had issues with in the first and second book weren't around so much.
*I got an e-copy from the author but all opinions stated ...more
This is one of those occasions I went into the last book of a series before I have read the others. (I really need to learn to stop doing that). However, I thoroughly enjoyed this one. The character development was spot on. everything was wrapped up tidy (from what i could see). I just couldn’t put this one down!
The Cover is simple but looks great! I am definitely planning to go back and buy the entire series to add it to my library. I know ...more
Protagonist: Ashling Boru has come a long way since the beginning of the Bloodmark Saga. She's encountered many perilous journeys, suffered grave hardships, and found true love. In this book she isn't taking anything from anybody. She's not afraid to speak her mind and let people know when they're being stupid. Most of the time I really loved Ashling, the only times she ever got on my nerves I'll get to in a bit, but she's a strong character not afraid to do what needs to be done to prote ...more
Her other pack of shapeshifter/werewolves & for the most part human or other faithful followers are: Baran Killian (Ashling's guardian, Scotland),
Redmond “Mund” Boru (Ireland), Brychan Kahedin (Wales), Dilara Tabakov (Ashling's guardian, Russia), Tegan Kahedin-Boru (Ireland), Niamh “Nia” ...more

Bloodmoon is the third and final book in the Bloodmark Saga. I felt that is was wrapped up quite nicely. I can't think of anything off the top of my head that wasn't resolved. Overall I quite liked this one, but I didn't love it the way I loved the second book Bloodrealms. That being said, this series will be going into my favorite series folder on Goodreads.

Ashling has now accepted her role as the Crimson Queen. Surrounded by an every growing group of family, friends and supporters, she charges on to complete the impossible task the prophecy has laid out before her.
This book starts off where the second one left off, meaning that this is by no means a stand alone. The char ...more
Ashling proved to be a strong heroine and someone who was worthy of being a Queen. She has really stepped into her role and has not turned into a whiny, over ...more
This is the last book in the Bloodmark trilogy and I enjoyed the entire series. The books build on one another so I don’t recommend reading this one until you’ve read Bloodmark and Bloodrealms.
Ashling Boru has already been through a lot in her short life and is now the Crimson Queen even though she is only 17 years old. Her pack trusts her and any of them would ...more
At the end of book 2, Werewolf Ashling Boru's beloved protector, Baran, had been captured and left behind in the Bloodrealms where he would be tortured and killed. She was determined to save him, but no one could come up with a plan with even a hope of success. The knowledge of what he must be going through weighed heavily.
Also, her 18th birthday was drawing near, a time of the Bloodmoon were she had to accept a suitor and fulfill the prophecy of ...more
This book was so fast paced, I couldn't put it down. I mentioned in my review of Bloodrealms that the book was filled with plot twists. This book had even more. When you think a character is gone forever, they actually aren't. When you think s ...more
Reviewing the first and second installment in this trilogy, I made the comment that I was really enjoying the lore of this series but not so much the main characters. I think those sentiments hold true for the final installment in this trilogy.
The lore that we're given in this trilogy is pretty cool. A bit different from your typical werewolf story.
But the main character and her love interest just ...more
This is the third and final book in the Bloodmark Series which should be read in order.

She journeys back to the Bloodrealms to save Baran and pull together the pieces of the puzzle needed to fulfill the prophecy. Enemies are brought together to fight on the sa ...more
This is book three in the Bloodmark Saga and should be read in order.
Ashling Boru has a lot of weight on her shoulders. As the Crimson Queen she has many decisions to make, and her decisions will impact all of the packs that she will rule over. Baran needs to be rescued from the Bloodrealms. How closely she's tied to Grey needs to remain secret. She also has to find a few women who will be instrumental to her claiming at the Rock.
Time is running out. Lives hang in the balance. Evil is o ...more
Verci thinks he will win and bet Ashling and her pack? There are more surprises and twist as the story goes on. There is a war going on. Where is Vigdis at? Will Ashing be claimed or not? Does ashling need to choose who wil ...more
Aurora Whittet definitely kicked it up a notch in this book! I think Bloodmoon was the best book in the series! It was the perfect wrap to a high tension series that tells of a young teen caught between her position as the Crimson Queen and the teen she is. I think this book would be better suited to younger young adult readers because at times ...more
Trouble has followed Ashling and her prophecy through the entire series and just because it is the last book does not mean the trouble stopped. No matter how many steps forward she appears to make, there is always someone lurking trying to stop her from fulfilling her destiny – even in the final book.
