Bloodmark by Aurora Whittet

Monday, January 13, 2014

Sixteen-year-old werewolf princess Ashling Boru is different from other wolves—she was able to shift to wolf form at birth. Rather than bringing pride to her family, it brings fear, and as a result, she is forced to live in seclusion in Ireland’s countryside. Ashling’s reputation is further blackened when she refuses her betrothed and defies the ancient laws. When her pack’s oldest rivals begin hunting her, she finds herself in the small town of York Harbor, Maine—far from everything she’s ever known.

In Maine, she crosses paths with the dark and rebellious Grey Donavan, and something ignites within her soul. There’s just one problem: Grey is human. Their instant connection turns into a passionate romance, and Ashling begins to believe she can create her own life outside of wolf laws. When she begins to uncover long-buried pack secrets—secrets that threaten to destroy all she holds dear—Ashling’s courage and tenacity are tested. Will she choose her deep and enduring love for Grey, or will she follow Old Mother’s path to her destiny?

Goodreads Summary

Werewolf genre lovers rejoice, here is another great story to add to your list of must reads. Similar in tone to Vampire diaries, Bloodmark is the story of a Teen werewolf that falls for a human boy against the will of her pack with a celtic theme.

It was interesting to hear a story from the girls perspective as all too many of the recent vampire/werewolf stories seem to be all from the male perspective. The rebellious teen's story is very visual and you can very easily visualize the Irish landscapes and characters come to life as you read along. The arranged marriage aspect of the story was interesting to me as well because I have never quite understood that part of different cultures and found it interesting to see. The story is packed with a good balance of action, plot and character development and will not disappoint throughout. Although this "Twilight" style book fits into the mold that a lot of other books are falling into, it is worth a read and will be enjoyed by Y.A. lovers everywhere.
