Review: Bloodmark by:Aurora Whittet
About the Book:
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?
About the Author:
Aurora Whittet started out as a wild red-haired child in Minnesota dreaming up stories for her friends to read. Today, she has completed the first of three novels in the Bloodmark Saga. She is a national award-winning graphic designer in her day job. Aurora lives with her husband and son in Minnesota.
Ashling was very excited to know she would get to see her father after him being away so long. She gets dressed in one of her finest outfits and goes to where her father had asked her to go. And that's the moment that changed her life. Her father springs the idea of her marrying a twenty year old werewolf. Being only fourteen this is quite frightening, even if she is a werewolf also.
The man seemed nice enough but that's not what angered her. She was angry with her father for basically selling her into marriage to a man she didn't love. She is very grateful when her good friend saves her from going with the man right away, he saved her by four years. She had that long to prove to her father that she can find someone that was the one for her. But how?
The author has done a brilliant job of writing in a very strong plot line with almost completely, believable characters sure to make your skin crawl. I am looking forward to reading more from this author.
