Goodreads description :

Darby O'Rielly is not your typical girl next door. She and her sister are ancestral witches, but have never been taught the art of their craft in an attempt to have the girls 'fit in' to their tiny community. When a dark stranger and his brother enter her life, love blooms and havoc ensues. For these two handsome brothers aren't just good looking, they are 'born vampires' of royal blood and they have hunters hot on their trail. When a Van Helsing wanna-be arrives and threatens Devon and Blake's immortal lives, Darby unleashes a deadly magic in order to save them. As vengeance for killing his hunter, our villain kidnaps, Rowan, Darby's sister and injects her with werewolf blood. Darby, Devon and Blake take a redeye to Maine to try and save her. A search then ensues to find a werewolf named Dean who isn't exceptionally friendly or eager to help friends of vampires. Will Rowan survive her transformation or will the werewolf blood wreak havoc on her body and kill her. You'll find out when you read this action packed urban fantasy romance novel yourself.

My Thought :

Darby O'Rielly, the main female character and Rowan, her sister, came from witch family but never taught how to use their power.

Devon Bloomington, the main male character and Blake, his younger brother, are vampires who have just moved into the house next door.

Devon is immediatelly drawn to Darby and Blake is drawn to Rowan. Terrence Paine, a man who kill Devon and Blake's parents, hunted the boys and sent a Van Helsing "type" kill the boys.
Darby use her power to protect the boys, but killed the Van Helsing guy in the process.

After that, they start plan to get back at Terrance Paine and working on darby's power. But, Paine's man kidnapped Rowan and inject her with werewolf's blood. Finally, Darby and the boys can find Rowan. But, there's a new problem because the werewolf's blood would turn Rowan into werewolf and Blake, who isn't correctly informed about the werewolf, is scared of what Rowan has become. If you want to know more about their journey, you have to read Blood of a Werewolf.

I enjoy this first book of blood series. There are many humor and sweet moment in this story. This story is very light on the sex or swearing. The ending would make us curious what would happen to Rowan and Blake in the next book.

If you enjoy books with witches, vampires or werewolves, you should definitely read this book.

I give Blood of a Werewolf 3 out of 5 stars.
