Melissa de la Cruz is an author I can trust. Her Blue Bloods series has delivered and I bet this one will not dissapoint either. I should go to the store and get Lost in Time already!

UPDATE 8/24/12: Please let that NOT be the final cover... It sucks! Specially when you compare it to The Blue Bloods covers which are pretty damn great.

Wolfpact is a spin off of sorts to the Blue Bloods series. It’s a series of novellas that help explain some of the events that happen behind the scenes between the end of book 5 and book 7! It is not necessary to read these novellas but I am honestly really happy that I did!
In terms of what I disliked from these novellas, it’s really just the same issues I have with the Blue Bloods series…the writing is a bit weak/underdeveloped at times and the pacing is a bit strange in certain
2.5 stars

Hmmmmm. I can see why this didn't get high marks. To be quite truthful it was so boring for much of the book.

The last 50 pgs were good enough but I was a little irritated with Bliss and Lawson. When I had read the synopsis it said something about these two kids who had both lost someone to The Underworld teaming up. I thought 'Oh good! Then there won't be a love interest situation!' but I was wrong...

Mere days after losing his "mate" our friend Lawson is thinking about his new pal Bliss

Hmmm, what do I say about this one. To be honest, I've been waiting for this book for awhile. It was originally suppose to be released in 2010, and I honestly I thought it was going to go the way of some of de la Cruz's unfinished series. So, I was thrilled to hear it was going to be released this fall. I wasn't thrilled though to here that it was going to be released just as an ebook since I don't have an e-reader and quite

First off, let's just say I didn't applaud Hyperion's decision to only publish this as an ebook. Yes, I read what de la Cruz wrote about the decision, and I understand it. However, I don't have an ereader, and, while I have people from whom I could borrow, the idea was less than appealing. I like books, I like holding things in my hand. I like being able to flip back and go over things I read before. I admit I have never used an ereader and would probably not find the experience completely disag ...more

Another stunning book from Melissa de la Cruz. By far my favourite author of all time. I'm pulled to her characters, her writing style and her style. Although her books are about vampires and werewolves, she puts a totally different spin on it. I enjoy all the biblical history and the strong background to the story and all of the characters. They're not cardboard cut outs but people you can relate to. The Blue Bloods series was amazing and I pre-ordered this book and read it all in one day I was ...more

I'm really exited for this book, but I have some concerns: one, the blue bloods series just isn't the same without Bliss, and two, Bliss is an alright character, but she isn't my favorite by a long shot, and I worry that a series about her will make me totally hate the blue bloods series. I mean, there's another spin off series about the Blue Bloods which will have 2 books and are about witches. I think de la Cruz's idea for the blue bloods won't make sense if the all-powerful blue blood race do ...more

This was a good companion to the Blue Bloods series. I think this should definitely be read before Gates of Paradise otherwise you'll probably be confused when these characters show up there. There was a decent amount of action, but I think more could've be done with Bliss and her involvement with the wolves.

So where do I start…..? Ah I know. I HATED this book. No let’s look at it this way. Cause I also love it too. Separate, from the blue bloods series. This book was an 8/10. the story had suspense (although you pretty much knew where it was going anyways but still all good) action, killing, love in all the right doses and I’m so glad the author didn’t write in some tragic dumb arse girl, going “Omg! Omg! Help me im a dumb arse girl that can’t do anything for myself an im in love with this guy but ...more
I think this book takes place before the final Blue Bloods book but I'm not sure. In any case, it's recommended you read that series before reading Wolf Pact.

This book is the story of how Lawson and his pack escaped becoming hell hounds and what they did during their year of hiding.

Bliss is searching for the pack. It's her mission to convince Lawson's pack to help take down the Silver Bloods but first she has to help Lawson take down Romulus.

It was an interesting story but very short for the pri

I am a big fan of anything Melissa writes, and when I discovered that she was writing Wolf Pact I knew I had to read it.  What I love about these books is how they all tie in together in some way, Arthur from Serpents Kiss, and Bliss from Blue Bloods.

Lawson, Tala, Malcolm, Edon,  and Rafe escape from the underworld into human world and soon find themselves trying to figure out how to survive in their new bodies and a new place.  Arthur comes to thier rescue ans offers the ma safe place to stay a

Wolf Pact, Melissa de la Cruz
What it's about: Wolf Pact is a crossover from Melissa de la Cruz's Blue Bloods series but deals with werewolves instead of vampires … though the vamps do make appearances. Wolf Pact centers around Lawson and his brothers after they escape the underworld. Now they're being pursued by the Hounds of Hell. When the girl Lawson loves is captured, he'll have to make a pact with a young vampire …

Why you should read it: Melissa de la Cruz reinvented vampires with her Blue B

Did the Blue Bloods series need a shot in the arm? Yes, it did. Don’t get me wrong, I did enjoy the series. There was a lot of information in these books that we’ve been waiting on to make the world that Melissa De La Cruz created more complete. The world of the wolves, those who have not been turned into hell hounds and those who have, is explored in great detail.

I’ve always liked the character of Bliss, and felt a bit sad for her because of her many challenges. I’m glad to see that she got a

I expected this book to be can't-put-down-until-i-finish but it was not.
I just completed it for the sake that i started it but it is a very short read, i completed it real quick....

I liked reading it when Bliss and Lawson were together. That's it.

I was just waiting for something that would take the interest up a notch.....but i hope the next book will be much better than this...

I really have not cared for Bliss and I just did not find her interesting; however, I still will read the book because I would like to know what happened to her.

This book is a spin-off, so my immediate reaction: this is going to suck. Needless to say, I went into it with low expectations, and even then, I was still disappointed. We, avid readers, should have gotten used to how a series you like is turned into a money-making piece of crap, no longer art but cheap means to get a few more bucks. Congrats to the author, I guess.

Before I get into reviewing the actual story, I just want to discuss something that bothered me greatly. I felt like a face-palm wa

I have wait for about four years to read the Wolf Pact novellas. When I heard there was a spin-off series that featured Bliss I got excited because Bliss was one of my favorite characters in Blue Bloods. Unfortunately, they were only available as e-books at the time and I didn't have the means to read them in that format. When I saw a paperback copy on Amazon I bought it IMMEDIATELY.
I'm so happy I finally got to read Wolf Pact. It was really good, but I wish there was more. Oh well, the story g

I've read this year ago and it has a big place in my heart
I would say this spinoff book has been in the works longer than most books are, and longer than it should have.
I understand Melissa's reasons for why this has taken so long to be released, but since it has relevance to Gates of Paradise, so it being released just before the release of the final book in the Blue Bloods series makes sense. In a way, I am glad that it happened like this. And I am glad I was able to get the paperback, which I was given as a prize for my participation in the Blue Blo

I read the first Blue Bloods novel while I was a sophomore or junior in high school and stayed with the series for some time including reading the other companion novellas, Keys to the Repository and Bloody Valentine. I had a 'falling out' you could say because I didn't know de la Cruz published two more along with Wolf Pact until I saw a coworker reading one of the latest books in the series. It took me a while but I'm finally getting around to continuing where I left off.

I enjoyed reading this book because of the constant tension and the fact that it had characters with supernatural powers.These days everyone is always wrapped up in the newest paranormal book whether it’s good or bad.Some of those books are cliche`s of “Twilight” and thankfully this book is not.This book will keep you on the edge of your seat from the beginning to end.

Honestly as excited I was to read the book, I was also a little hesitated since I have seen a lot of negative reviews. That will teach me to base my decisions on reviews. I completely trust Cruz. I don't think I've read anything by her that I've been disappointed in. Even though it's technically not considered part of the Blue Bloods series, I think it should be. Especially since I do believe Cruz even said herself that we should read Wolf Pact before Gates of Paradise.

Wolf Pact, while not quite as good as the Blue Bloods series, is a fast read that will give fans of the original series a little more in-depth look at the wolves and their history.

This is said to be Bliss' story so starting off I expected it to be from her point-of-view and I was really suprised when it wasn't. The book starts off from Lawson's point-of-view. Lawson is a completely new character, a wolf in hell who wants to be free. Only once Lawson is freed from the Underworld do we actually
