Publisher's Summary

Wood Point Academy is not at all what I expected.
For one thing, it looks like a cross between military school and Buckingham Palace. Everyone stares, the floors shine so bright you can see your reflection in them from a mile away, and no one smiles. Unless they're kicking your butt in the process.
At least I've got plenty to take my mind off the fact that my psycho cousin, Miles De'Luca, keeps calling and declaring his love and promising to come for me just as soon as he's destroyed anyone standing in our way. Wes isn't going to like that idea. So between Miles, Wood Point's evil welcoming committee, and the drill sergeant hottie trainer from hell, I just keep asking myself, how did I end up here?

Brilliant!!

Tara has been excepted to the prestigious hunter's Wood Point Academy! She should be thrilled as it's the best hunters school, but she is miles from home, miles from Wes and her crazy cousin, Miles De'Luca, is constantly ringing her and freaking her out by promising that she will be his! Plus Tara isn't exactly welcomed in the ranks of the hunters due to her "dirty" blood! There are some bright sides though, Cambria and Logan who quickly bring Tara into their fold, and Alex, her trainer! Can Tara survive in the hunter infested waters and stay sane??

Here's me thinking that Dirty Blood was amazing, and it is, but this one was so much better!!! More action, more friends for Tara, an amazing setting and a completely crazy bad dude! The only down side is there isn't much Wes. But... there is Alex. The hawwwwt trainer who has to bring Tara up to an acceptable level, since she can't run a mile without being winded. Alex hit's Tara up the wrong way at the start by saying something about her dirty blood, but their friendship soon blossoms.

I absolutely love how this author writes incredible characters! Ones you can't help but fall in love with. Cambria and Logan were awesome!!!! I want them as BFFs ;) They really help Tara cope with the nasty comments made about her and are there for her no matter what. Alex is another character I enjoyed. He is the brooding type, the one where you know more is to come. Tara is as kick ass and sassy as always and is one of my favourite characters ever!!

In all, this is an incredible addition to the series and sees the characters grow a lot. It's an action packed, edge of your seat book that will leave you wanting more. I loved this series when I first read them and I love them even more after listening to the audios!! Highly recommend.

Kelly Pruner is amazing as Tara!!! She really knows her character and brings her to life. She has a great range of tones as well for the rest of the characters and gave her all to the story. Brilliant performance!!

Give Me More..and ALEX!

Book 2 in Heather Hildenbrand's Dirty Blood series gives me a little more background on the major players, the enemies and we meet ALEX lol. Tara has entered the academy, so this book focuses more on that along with training and preparation of what's to come. As a teen, she deals with situations that many persons her age face and it was fun to sit back and watch...(see previous statement lol)

There is a cliffy at the end, but at least you don't have to wait to get book 3. I love Heather's writing style and I hope she continues to write captivating stories that stretch outside the box of normal YA Urban Fantasy.

Kelly Pruner narrates again and did better this go round. I'd love to see her tone down Cambria's sound a bit and use a more normal pitch with the same snark. Her male voice and voice as other characters are on point. Looking forward to hearing her performance in book 3.
