    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.

    Good sequel

    (I received this book for free as part of Goodreads First Reads giveaways). (This review may contain spoilers). Having read the first book in this series, I was pretty happy I already had the second book... and I had a much better feeling while I was reading this book. I liked the women, but there were times I got a bit confused with them. The ones who weren't the main characters seemed almost grouped together into one entity and there were a few who weren't actually named. It was nice to see other characters as well in this book. I really liked Alex's relationship and I liked the fact that he was a fairly interesting character and it was nice to see that the author spent quite a bit of time on his subplot. I really find it unique that the vampire-race can't actually get physical with anyone until after they're bound. It's an interesting and unique take on it and I felt it kept the relationships real, with just enough sexual tension to indicate that, yes, these two characters are strongly attracted to each other. I would like to know how the Dragons are formed. If it's a genetic thing, I would have thought that at least some of the Dragons would be physically related to each other. I really didn't like the police officer in this book. I didn't like him in the previous one, either, but he was particularly annoying in this one. There were a couple of the bad guys that I found fairly intriguing, even though I really dislike them. Not their leader, though - he's a complete jerk and I really dislike him. I can't feel any sympathy towards him... or really understand the reasons behind what he's trying to do. There were a few emotional scenes in this book and some things that really made me angry. I ran a gauntlet of emotions through this book and that's a sign of a book that really draws me in and keeps me hooked all through reading it. I definitely intend to read book three at some point in the future. I also have a short story that's set in the world as well. If you'd like a more unique take on the vampire paranormal romances... this series is it.

    Can't wait for the next book. Exciting read, had to force myself to stop. Love the way it carries on so you have to read the next book. The history of the mom was cool too.
