    Characters That Truly Impact the Heart

    Let me tell you about how a book might have literally saved my life. When I agreed to review this book, I was in a really, REALLY low place. Not to go into personal issues, but I was absolutely at my lowest point ever. I do not exaggerate in the least, when I say that I was ready to call it quits. Then I started Purest of the Breed. I had read The Bloodline War and loved it, one of my favorite books this year as a matter of fact, and felt an obligation to finish this commitment that I had made Tracy Tappan. Long, depressing story short.... Marissa and Dev made me laugh. I don't mean a giggle or a snort. I laughed til tears rolled and my stomach muscles cramped and begged for mercy. That shot of endorphins and joy brought me back to a sane place, so you will understand why I am now an acolyte of this series. I know many who feel the vampire trope has been done to death, BUT, I swear that you haven't had the honor of meeting the Varcolac, or else you would erase that thought from your psyche forever. This world is beyond unique and the characters are created, developed, and written to such a degree of perfection that I feel I could call them on the phone or meet them for coffee. The minutiae of everyday life is not forgotten but welcomed and used to make this world a very real place. Not only was there laughter, but there was drama, angst, heartbreak, tears, and yes lots and lots of melt your panties off romance. I would love to tell some of the secrets that make this world so special, but finding out is half the fun. I will hint that these mature Varcolac are primed and ready. You CAN learn alot from books! The dynamics between all the characters, past, present and future would be enough for me. The romance is just the jalapeno on top. (These are some hot tamales!) These Varcolac, and all there assorted brethren have absolutely captivated me with their wit, intelligence, sexiness and just plain likability. I absolutely defy you to read this book, nay this series, and not come away a happier, more balanced person. It can't be done. Do I expect The Community series to be used in therapy? Probably not, but it worked for me. I guarantee you will like this book. J.R. Ward, Sherrilyn Kenyon and the others atop the PNR mountain, watch your back, there is a fast rising star and it's Tracy Tappan.

    2nd novel

    Almost enjoyed this story as much as the 1st. Fully interested in how the whole story is evolving. Not sure about the past flashbacks to provide the history background, but guess it was useful to get that part of the story to us.

    I can't wait for the next book!!!

    I can't wait for the next book!!! This is the second book in the series, and the way this one ended, there will definitely be a third (HOORAY!!!) Tracy's books are kind of like a 2-for-1 deal: she doesn't just introduce a supporting character and then never mention it again. She gives the reader an in-depth look at the supporting character(s), almost like a novella inside of the novel. This really had me invested in the collective characters and eager to read more about them, hopefully in subsequent books. She also involved the main characters from book 1 in book 2 and even continued their story. It was like catching up with old friends, and I was SO happy! I absolutely LOVED everything that transpired between Marissa and Dev, especially their first meeting (it was pretty funny. I think you'll laugh when you read it!). His unwavering devotion to her is so endearing, and the dialogue between them truly made me FEEL. Even though Dev is a big, tough warrior, life seems to throw him a few unexpected curve balls that shatters his world around him. I really felt for him, and if Marissa didn't comfort him, I would have jumped into that book and done it myself! Similarly, Marissa is forced to deal with some unfortunate issues, which makes them a perfect couple. Not many love scenes in the book, but it really didn't need them. The actual LOVE between the characters was engaging enough to read. The story kept developing twists that kept me guessing until the end. Heck, even the last sentence of the book has me guessing about the NEXT book! I love this series because all of the males are to-the-death devoted to their mates. Once he knows who she is, he never wavers in his commitment: he doesn't ever WANT to. I love reading stories like that; where he finds his "one and only" and never lets anything come between them. This series definitely keeps getting better. I am looking forward to at least one more in the series, but I'm also very interested in reading Tracy's other upcoming books in other romance-genres, not just paranormal!

    Purest of the breed

    Good story but wish it would jump around a little less. The story had a lot of interesting characters with odd names. The end of the book leaves you knowing that there will be another one
