{Review} Blood Rites by Quinn Loftis

Blood Rites
by Quinn Loftis
Series:  The Grey Wolves (#2)
Publisher:  Self Published
Pages:  233 (ebook)

Available as of November 19, 2011

With the challenge complete and the corrupt Alpha of Coldspring defeated Fane is now free to complete the mate bond with Jacque and perform the Blood Rites. Although the challenge is done, the affects are far reaching. Once it is known that Vasile, one of the strongest Alphas in the world is in America, specifically Coldspring, TX, there is one Alpha who cannot over look the significance of this. An Alpha who happens to share Jacque's DNA, but is this the one she needs to fear?

With her mom driving and her two best friends, Jen and Sally in tow, Jacque sets off for her happily ever after. She will soon realize a plan has been put in motion that will change her course and possibly tear her from Fane's grasp forever. It will take a wolf pack, her mother's love, her two best friend's unrelenting determination, her own will to survive and the undying love of her mate to bring her home. The question remains, if she fights, if she endures, who will she be, what will be left once she is back in her mates arms?


This review contains spoilers if you haven't read the first book in this series.
Prince of Wolves

Even after a second reading of this book I am still in love. Quinn Loftis has outdone herself with this book. The romance, tragedy, and chase provided in this book would make just about anyone swoon.  

Jacque and Fane have overcome the challenge and are getting ready for the blood rites the next evening until tragedy strikes and they are torn apart. Jen is falling hard for Decebel knowing she could never have a happily ever after with him because she doesn't have wolf blood. And Sally is there to comfort Jen in her distress.

 In this book we are introduced to a few new characters and really given insight on a one previously introduced in Prince of Wolves. Dillon Jacobs is Jacque's father and Alpha of the Denver Pack. He knew nothing of her existence until hearing of the challenge and now wants to meet her. Logan, Dillon's Beta, is asked to keep tabs on Jacque by his Alpha. Cynthia Steele, sister of Lucas Steele, is a woman seeking to avenge her brothers death. In Blood Rites we finally get to know Decebel, a possessive, bossy wolf who only confuses Jen with every move he makes.

Blood Rites is the same as Prince of Wolves in the sense that the perspective changes. However, instead of changing between chapters, it changes within the chapters. I really like the point of view change because it allows the reader to really understand how each of the characters feel in any given event or scene. 

Overall, I feel this was a great book depicting yet another mountain for Jacque and Fane to conquer.  I highly recommend this book as well as the others in The Grey Wolves series.
