Hotblood (House of Slide, #1)Hotblood by Juliann Whicker

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a young adult paranormal romance.

Book Summary

He stole a kiss from the wrong girl…
Left without a soul, 17-year-old Dariana Sanders waited to die. There was nothing left to live for, nothing to feel besides the aching cold that never stopped. Her parent’s marriage was in shambles, and her brother, the only one who understood, the only one who knew how to make the cold go away, was gone forever. The only thing Dariana knew with absolute certainty was that nothing could possibly be right again. Enter Lewis Axel Nialls. Luckily for her, impossible is right up his alley. He can save her from the forces that wish to destroy her. Of course who’s going to save him, from her?

My Review

The book was like an engaging, intriguing, yet challenging like 500 pieces puzzle in a good way. This book is unlike any book I’ve ever read. This is always a good thing. But with all the world building and no prior knowledge about this world, it was sometimes a little disconcerting not understanding at once. But for me the author did a great job of answers most of my question on her own terms in the story. And I enjoy a good puzzle immensely.

Dariana as well as all the characters in the book were well developed and I found myself attached to Alex, Grim, and Satan. I really enjoyed this book so much. There were only a few times when I felt the story ended a little too abruptly moving onto a new part of the story leaving me wondering if I missed something. Also, there were a few conversations that I didn’t quite following. But neither happened often or took away my enjoyment of the book. I was surprised I was left with a few questions.

I had some questions about the story, but they are spoilers. If you want to see them, check out my review on Goodreads.

Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed this story. It was believable at least as much as any paranormal story can be, lol. Everything moved at a realistic pace. Great job and I truly look forward to book two in this series.

I would recommend to everyone. Nothing in this story needs to be censored.
