    Action packed and fabulous!

    The Sentinels are monk-trained warriors who maintain order amongst the High Bloods, that is: witches, healers, necromancers, psychics, and telepaths. Bas Cavrilo is a renegade; he has broken ties with the official organisation to sell his talents to the highest bidder, within reason. Five years before, Cal had had a fateful encounter with the lovely Myst, who left him the daughter she had following that one time. Bas loves his daughter, Molly, with all his heart. Molly had been kidnapped the year before, and when Myst appears at Bas’ door, even though he never forgave Myst, he will do everything in his power to keep them safe, however his heart might be at stake… BLOOD LUST is the third book in Alexandra Ivy’s Sentinels series, and it can easily be read as a standalone, because Ms. Ivy explains everything subtly, concisely, and very clearly so that no one will be lost, and all will be thoroughly entertained. Ms. Ivy is an exceptional worldbuilder and storyteller, and BLOOD LUST is a perfect example of her considerable talents and why she is so successful at what she does. Bas and Myst’s budding relationship is built mostly on instalust, but handled so cleverly that I believed every single minute of it, besides their obvious love for their daughter. Bas is a terrific character: as macho as he is, he has a tender heart and is never pushy. Myst appears a fragile little flower, but she is at least as strong as Bas, and I loved how the dynamics between the two shifted as their relationship bloomed. Every character is exceptionally well fleshed out, and one of the most notable features of BLOOD LUST is the bevy of powerful female characters. I also very much enjoyed watching the shenanigans of a deliciously wicked – and very believable - villain. BLOOD LUST is positively riveting, the plot iron-clad; it’s a fast paced book, and well-balanced all around; everything blends fluidly. Best of all, the more the story progresses, the more gripping it becomes, and there was a fabulous plot twist. Of course everything made even better by Alexandra Ivy’s crisp and eloquent prose. Don’t hesitate for a moment: BLOOD LUST is worth every second of your time! I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    Supernatural Fantasy Romance

    Myst suddenly appears in the home of Bas shortly after their young daughter is returned from being kidnapped. Myst has been in hiding trying to find out what one of her visions means so she can prevent the horrors she fears she may spring at some point in the future on an unsuspecting world. As Bas and Myst discuss the situation and come up with a plan they get to know one another better and come up with a plan to find the answers Myst so desperately is seeking. This is the first book in this series that I have read but it is able to stand alone without reading previous books and does not end with a cliffhanger. I really liked Myst and Bas together and their daughter Molly added to their story and the overall story as well. I want to know more about Wolfe and Lana and wonder if Kaede will get a story of his own, too. This was a fun and easy supernatural fantasy romance filled with suspense, good and evil, hot scenes, alpha males, magic and a whole lot more. I would like to thank NetGalley and Kensington Books for the copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

    Blood Lust

    Loved the development of Bas and Ivy's background and to find more about the "keeper of the tales". There is definitely room for more stories!

    Suspenseful

    I always look forward to Ms. Ivy's books because she is a master at weaving details, hidden clues, mystery and smoking hot romance into a plot line that reels a reader in completely and there's always something new and interesting in each of them. BLOOD LUST certainly has all that - great storytelling, hot romance and lots of heart. Sentinel assassin, Bas has been declared a wanted man by Valhalla but he's going to need the help of the powers that be to take on their common enemy, the Brotherhood and ensure the safety of his daughter and her mother, the woman who has consumed him for the last five years. Myst only hoped to get job when she came to Bas but she got more than she planned for and to save her daughter's life, she brought her to her father and disappeared. Haunted all her life by the Brotherhood to be used as a tool for world dominion, Myst has been searching for a way out and with no solution in sight, she has decided on a very permanent solution, but first she has to say her goodbyes to her loved ones. But Bas is not letting her go without a fight, even if it means a temporary alliance with his enemies. I certainly wasn't a fan of Bas from the previous book but he won me over finally and made me see him as more than just a soulless mercenary. He still doesn't play by the rules, is still out for number one, but his devotion to his daughter is undeniable. His feelings for Myst have made her his second weakness but he'll fight to the death to protect both of them. What Myst lacks physically she makes up for with her inner strength and determination and even Bas has his work cut out for him trying to keep her in line. BLOOD LUST certainly is not as action-packed as the previous installments in the series but it more than makes up for that with the heartwarming feelings induced by the interactions between Bas, Myst and the enchanting Molly. I loved untangling the threads of the mystery and have to give Ms. Ivy kudos for making that a unique and unexpected twist to the whole story. In addition, we are teased endlessly with the air-sucking chemistry between the Mave and her Tagos and I can't wait for their story. As usual, while each book stands alone I'll recommend reading the series in order so as to keep track of the ongoing story arc. With all the deliciousness the series has to offer, why not?

    Fantasy & Romance, Wrapped up in One Package

    Blood Lust by Alexandra Ivy is the perfect mix of action, romance and drama! Bas and Myst have two of the coolest names I've ever seen in a book, let me say that outright. And now, onto the review! I've been hoarding Alexandra Ivy books on my shelves for years now, so I was thrilled to finally pick up one of the books hanging around on my shelves. This book was a lovely book to start off with, even if it was third in the series. I had no problem jumping into this story and I fell in love with these mysteriously epic characters! In this book, Myst and Bas have a young girl named Molly (she has such a normal name for her parents having cool ones, just saying...) and she brings them back together. Bas, the assassin, and Myst, the woman who's seen a very important vision, are such a strangely well paired couple. They are hot and bothered and ready to fight. I loved that this book wasn't purely romance - I've gotten tired of the "this is a fantasy book" but it really is all romance trope that I've been seeing lately. Having this book full of intense drama and action with the romance coming in closer to the end felt REALLY nice. These two characters are definitely made for the romance sphere, but they also have such incredible back stories that it would have been a waste to not explore them. So, kudos to Alexandra Ivy for making this book so different. My notes on the book are as followed: 1. You can see the ending coming from a mile away, but that's probably just me reading too much and watching too many movies. 2. This book is easy to jump into as a stand alone, but I might have understood a little bit more of the world building if I had read the first two books in the series. 3. The fantasy in this book is REALLY COOL. You can tell a world is being built around this series, so I really hope there's more books to come. 4. I love the relationship between Bas and Myst. They are sassy, sarcastic and yet romantic at all the right times. 5. The story felt "real" - you can believe that Bas and Myst would go save their daughter. All of the plot points didn't feel forced and worked really well within the story as a whole. 6. If I had to pick one negative for me, it would be that the book felt just a little too long. Some scenes could have been cut out and the story would have made just as much sense. Overall, I really liked this book! It was a great mix of fantasy, action and romance and I'd highly recommend it to someone looking to fill the void in those genres. I wouldn't recommend purely binging it. I liked it much more when I was able to set it down and jump back into the world. Four out of five stars.
