I first read Dirty Blood when it came out and immediately fell in love with it, well this time it was no different. I fell in love with it all over again.
We are thrown into the action pretty much straight away. Tara is on a date with her boyfriend George. He turns up late, as usual, and Tara says, enough is enough, and breaks up with him. She leaves by herself and ends up traveling through an alley. One second Tara is walking, the next she is facing down the unbelievable. A girl starts charging at her but then it's a wolf. Tara is stunned but her body reacts to the danger. She ends up picking up a pipe and killing the girl/wolf. Tara is in shock when a boy turns up. Who is he? What is going on? From that second on Tara's life changes forever!
I loved Tara. She is spunky, brave and kick ass but is still a normal girl. Her life is like any other teenagers until the moment the wolf attacks. She learns what she is and I loved that she struggled at first with everything. It took her time to believe and jump on board. Her whole attitude and demeanor is relateable and she was easy to connect to.
Then we have Wes. *Sigh* Wes!!! Tara has no idea what to make of him at the start because he is so standoffish, add in the fact that she is a Hunter and he is a Werewolf and immediately you have a forbidden romance. I loved Wes. He is stubborn, strong, brave and kind. He is definitely the strong silent type.
I loved the romance in Dirty Blood. It takes time for Wes and Tara to hit it off, despite the pull Tara feels toward him. There's no insta love here and despite George being in the picture at the start, there's no love triangle, which is always a plus!!
Dirty Blood is an action packed, edge of your seat read. Right from the start it pulls you in and won't let go, even after you have read the last page. Heather Hildenbrand weaves a fantastic story that will leave you breathless and turning the pages as quickly as you can to see what happens. Everything about this book is amazing, from the breathtaking plot to the phenomenal writing, Dirty Blood is a must read.
This is one series that everyone should check out. Dirty Blood is a phenomenal first book and believe me when I say that every book is just as good. This is one of my all time favourite series and I can't recommend them highly enough. Go get this book NOW, you wont be sorry!!
Kelly Pruner did a great job with the narration. She performed Tara perfectly!! She had her sass and kick ass attitude down to a t and even brought Wes alive. She didn't try too hard to do a male voice and I appreciated that because often time it can come across forced. I thoroughly enjoyed her performance and look forward to more by her.

I really liked this book a lot. Good YA urban fantasy with actual creepy/bloody/killing bad guys. It's just upsetting that the second book reads like middle school drama. I'm on chapter 28 and still no fights, saving good guys,killing bad guys. It's only been about not being the new kid and boyfriend drama. Bleh.

I loved this series as an actual book And now I have it in audio also! Which helps me as a new mum with a 3 months old. I can listen to it while little man sleeps during our walks or in the middle of a night while feeding him! AMAZING!
Loved it and can't wait to start 3rd part as 2nd is already listened to!
