Book Review - Changeling: Blood Wolf


Trey thought he was the only one.
It was a lie.
The last hereditary werewolf has found his pack – and they’re vicious, bloodthirsty, and truly wild.
Trey has had enough of vampires, demons and sorcerors. He needs to get in touch with his real family – the ones with fur, fangs and killer instincts.
But the wolf pack howling at the moon in Canada is not what he expected. And without the protection of de-fanged vampire and demon-hunter Lucien Charron, the family secret is more dangerous than he ever knew. Trey’s out of control. Can the werewolf be tamed? 

My Review
This book is a fresh break from the first in the series. It branches out into another location, plot and lots of new characters. Trey journeys to Canada to visit his uncle and join the pack of wolves that live there. Determined to go alone and discover his past and future by himself, he sets off. But things are never as they seem.
There is more to the pack than it seems, and there are some secrets that maybe shouldn't be discovered.
I loved the setting in Canada, it's very well described and sounded lovely. The new characters are great and all the different personalities really shine through. No matter what his past and excuses, i found myself liking Trey's Uncle and holding my breathe to see what would come next. 
Meanwhile back in London, Phillapa is trying to get over the lose of her dad and the discovery of the demon world. When things get complicated, she must rely on Alexa and Lucien to help, but Lucien is having his own problems. Things will really start to get complicated.
I really enjoyed the break of the two settings, it kept the interest and familiarity in Lucien and his grew in London, and then gave a fresh new approach with Trey.
There were parts of the story that i thought were a bit predictable, but i enjoyed it nevertheless. 
Much better than book two and i couldn't wait to grab hold of book four - The Demon Games.

My Rating
I would give this book 8.5/10. Fantastic work, a must read.
