I killed a girl last night. I did it with my bare hands and an old piece of pipe I found lying next to the dumpster. But that's not the part that got me. The part that scared me, the part I can't seem to wrap my head around and still has me reeling, was that when she charged me, her body shifted; and then she was a wolf - all snapping teeth and extended claws. But by the time I stood over her lifeless body, she was a girl again. That's about the time I went into shock. And that was the moment he showed up.

If you could sum up Dirty Blood in three words, what would they be?

Dirty Blood is a fun, action-packed and intriguing.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Tara is my favorite. I admire her determination and willingness to accept change. I liked that she wasn't a very whiney teenager and only had a few self pity and indecisive moments but overcame them quickly.

What does Kelly Pruner bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I think that she really gave the characters their own personality and helped bring them to life.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

This book had a few laugh out loud moments. It also had suspenseful and frustrating moments.

Any additional comments?

Dirty Blood is a new, intriguing take on the werewolf world. It is well paced and written. The story and plot line are fluid and developed with strong main characters. I thought it was easy to follow along but still contained plenty of twists and turns to keep you interested. I loved the detail Heather incorporated within the story without being overtly detailed.
