I was skeptical about JR Ward doing a spin off of the BDB series, and was afraid it would be more of a young adult novel due to the main storyline be..Show More »ing about a training class. However, I should've had more faith, this was classic JR Ward all the way, and I loved the spin off!
Blood Kiss does introduce us to some younger characters which is refreshing, but I was happy to see there was a strong presence of some of the original BDB characters including two of my favorite Vishous, and Butch. While the main plot is about Craeg and Paradise, the subplot with Butch and Marissa tied in nicely.
JR Ward is my favorite author! She knows how to write an awesome story that's full of romance, action and surprises.
This story was well worth the credit, and time well spent! I can't wait for the next book in the series. :-)
