The Werewolf Chronicles, Book One: Blood
I would recommend this book for anyone 15 or older. May 24, Marcie rated it liked it. Blood of a Werewolf by T. Lynne Tolles is an interesting paranormal tale about a pair of witch sisters and a pair a vampire brothers. Darby O'Reilly is a responsible and model citizen. She is smart, loving and an ideal older sister.
Rowan is fun loving, adventurous and spontaneous. Darby and Rowan are descended from a long line of witches. However they don't take it too seriously. That is until the house next door gets rented by two mysterious strangers. Devon and Blake are always on the move. T Blood of a Werewolf by T. They are looking for a normal life. Things get heated up when they meet the O'Reilly sisters. Complications ensue when Blake is attacked by a vampire hunter. The four of them vow to solve the mystery as to why they're being hunted. However when Rowan is kidnapped things get crazy and relationships get tested.
The storyline in Blood of a Werewolf is fast paced and full of adventure. Themes such as loyalty, family and forgiveness are woven through out the novel. I really enjoyed the storyline in this book. The characters in this book are great. Both sets of siblings are stereotypical. Darby and Devon are the oldest and therefore more responsible while Rowan and Blake are the youngest and more carefree.
My favorite character is Darby. She is steadfast and loyal. I enjoyed Rowan's storyline the best. I thought it was an interesting turn of events when Rowan was injected with Werewolf blood and everything that followed after. I definitely want to check out the next book in this series especially since there is a cliffhanger at the end of this novel. Overall I like this book. I'm interested in seeing where T. Lynne Tolles takes this story and what happens with the characters. May 01, Shelley rated it it was ok Shelves: Darby and her sister Rowena are descended from witches.
Neither has followed the family tradition and appear interested in only practicing the most mundane of the wiccan arts; tarot and runes plus running an occult bookshop. Their comfortable lives are turned upside down by the arrival of brothers Devon and Blake who have paranormal traits of their own. This is one of the most frustrating stories I have read in a long time! The plot is extremely promising - in fact equal to any of the top writers Darby and her sister Rowena are descended from witches.
The plot is extremely promising - in fact equal to any of the top writers of paranormal romance. But the narrative had me grinding my teeth throughout. The conversation between the main characters was so boring at times, and so repetative, I missed out vast tracts of text in order to get on with the story. And what is it with giving directions in a novel e. It's as if the writer needs to fill a few pages but can't think of anything useful to deepen and enrich the plot.
I decided to persevere because I had bought the bloomin' thing. I am not keen on the style of writing in this book; the characters are sketchy at best. There seems to be a lack of depth to their emotions and their responses are immature. If I was as gushy with my sister as Darby and her sister twitter on at each other, she would have me locked up. But I DO like the plot - Rowena will hopefully shine in the second book, so I will give it a go, thanks to the cliff hanger of this book!
Mar 20, Amy Jacobs rated it did not like it Shelves: I am on a current book binge of supernatural books right now. When the author sent me this book to review, it fell in line with my current reading taste for the moment. After reading the first few chapters, I thought I might actually enjoy this book even though it is a little reminiscent of Vampire Diaries and Twilight combined together.
The book starts out fairly fun and carefree with Darby arriving home and watering her garden. When she notices her new neighbor staring from his front porch at I am on a current book binge of supernatural books right now. When she notices her new neighbor staring from his front porch at her while dancing in the water, She is quickly embarrassed and intrigued.
She is embarrassed by him witnessing her dancing, but intrigued at his beauty and sudden appearance. They quickly connect at the local hang out by having a great conversation that lasts for hours. I really liked Devon, but it kind of went downhill after this chapter. It seemed that once the two characters were established, the rest of the characters were put on the back burner even though they are suppose to be major players of the book.
I couldn't warm up to Blake, even during his funny moments, and Darby's sister was just as bad. There were some inconsistency in the story as well and that bugs me. The story could have been so much better, but it felt rushed and unbelievable to the point that I was rolling my eyes at times. If you are looking for a read to pass the time, and don't mind inconsistencies, then you might enjoy it for a one time read. Other than that, I would give this book a pass for now.
Mar 19, Lunamoth rated it liked it. I thought this book was going to be more actiony. In fact, there is little action even when Darcys sister gets kidnapped. Darby is our main female character, she along with her sister are part of a very powerful witch family. However, there were many things i found wrong with the witchcraft in this book, for one Darcy tells Devon our main guy..
Any true witch would not do this, the guy could be a hunter, or bible thumper for all she knew. Also, Darby I thought this book was going to be more actiony. Also, Darby just kind of comes into her power, and even then its sparse and rather unbelieveable. Darby and Devon hit it off immediantly, he is also kind of stalkerish after thier first date is canceled, he sends her gifts every day afterwards for a week.
Thats, rather creepy but Darby eats it up. Thier love is so cavity induceing i felt myself cringeing. Then Rowan starts dateing Devons brother Blake, I couldnt help but wonder how that would play out since eventually Devon and Darby get engaged.. I liked the addition of the werewolf aspect though and I loved Dean. I was very happy when he came and mixed everything up. The writing style was OK, nothing spectacular but it gave imagery. The book is also clean which i appreciated, no over-sexual scenes, no swearing.
This book was not for me really, while i enjoyed the beggining and parts with Dean, it was a mish-mash of ups and downs. Aug 09, Book Review Diva rated it it was amazing Shelves: They both are very powerful, but do not yet know how to wield their powers. Soon they will learn when Rowan is kidnapped and injected with werewolf serum. Darby must do everything in her power to rescue her sister from harms way. Lucky for Darby and Rowan that both of their very gorgeous boyfriends are very powerful vampires, and are both are aiding Darby in catching Rowan's kidnappers.
Will they be able to save Rowan before she turns into a werewolf from the injected with werewolf serum, or will they be too late to save her from possible death? Vampire and Witch unite together in this action packed book full of twists and turns that will have your heart beating non stop with excitement. This book had me smiling all the way through it. Wonderfully written, and the romance and excitement is blended perfectly in this great book.

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.

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. Oct 25, Misha Mathew rated it liked it. Its great how I am discovering some great paranormal romance novels this year. Its funny how a year ago, I never thought I would read this genre. Blood of a Werewolf, the first in the Blood Series by T.

She's strong and competent , at the same time she has her weak moments which makes her more real and easier to connect with.
There were many humorous moments too which adds to the overall enjoyment of the book. Moreover I have always had a fascination with witches. This makes this book more compelling to me. The romance is sweet, yet not over-the-top. I look forward to further developments between Devon and Darby. Blood of a Werewolf is a fun and exciting read with some great plot twists to keep you awake at night.
I thought I had overdosed on vampire novels To all those who can't seem to get enough of vampires and werewolves. Jan 08, Anu Sha rated it liked it. The book is certainly enjoyable - It is the story of two sisters, Darby and Rowan, who come from a long line of witches but they have never really used their powers since their family was not interested in the world knowing who they were. These two sisters meet and connect with two Vampire brothers who are being pursued by a man who is seeking revenge on them for a decision their father I was recently given a free copy of Blood of a Werewolf by T.
This seemed a bit difficult to believe The ending leaves a major cliff hanger - just be prepared to look for the second book of the series This book was one that on the surface should have sent me into happiness spasms. I just did not connect with these characters and I think it was a generational thing. I may have had an easier time if I had more insight into Devon and Blake. The story of the two witch sisters and the two vampire brothers was fast paced, had snippets of humor and some memorable secondary characters.
I did wonder a time or two if Devon knew Edward or maybe the Salvatore brothers. This is definitely geared towards This book was one that on the surface should have sent me into happiness spasms. This is definitely geared towards a mature YA crowd. If I was a fan of that genre, I would have loved this book. The romantic content was sweet and not something I would hide from most tween girls unlike most of my reading material.
The story itself was unique and full of magic, mythical beings and would probably make an excellent TV series. Jun 26, Nita rated it did not like it Shelves: This book seemed to have an excellent plot line for a fun, likeable read. A little bit of Charmed, a little bit of Twilight, how could you go wrong? The author states that she wrote the book in 3 weeks, and I believe it. The story moves along at a lightning pace - giving the reader no time at all to get to know, like, hate, or cheer for the characters.

Instead, the author actually TELLS you how to feel about every moment that occurs, leaving very little room for imagination or connection with the storyline. For me, it was just a disappointment.

This book leaves me wanting more. I'm on to the second in the series. Lynne Tolles created a wonderful series with engaging characters. I look forward to seeing how the characters adapt and where their next journey will take them. Highly recommended re I loved this book. I gave this book 4 stars because some places seemed a bit to wordy in some places and I like to figure things out on my own without having them explained to much, BUT it was a great story. Really liked the drama towards the end of the book and cant wait to read the second to see if forgiveness will happen or if its just to hard to go back.
I'm of course all for the latter because my feelings were hurt just like the characters. So yes onward with book 2. Nov 01, Ayano rated it really liked it Shelves: This was a good book but some of chapters were so boring and it didn't make sense. Its just that both person saying that "Oh, I am a vampire. Oh, I am a witch! Mar 13, Kathryn rated it really liked it Shelves: If you are a fan of Supernatural then this is the series for you. I really liked the chemistry all the characters have together and the author speeds the story right along.
There are a few conversations that were a bit hard to keep up with, but that's just the authors writing style.

I couldn't find anything in the story I didn't like, with the exception that it ended to quickly! Aug 21, Willie Miller rated it did not like it Shelves: Only read about 5 chapters and I'm really surprised I got that far. The main characters are just annoying. I hated her personality her perceptive and just the way she was written usually it takes a lot for me to really not enjoy a book but this was just one of them I personally wouldn't waste my time on this one but everyone has there own opinion and this is just mine.

I love trying to figure out the mysteries as I read. There are no discussion topics on this book yet. Lynne Tolles can be found most days, juggling one of two cat muses and a laptop, tripping over a Newfoundland puppy and washing a never-ending pile of laundry.

The story dragged in the first book and now the second.
The plot sounded really good and I went ahead with the second book just in case I liked it better than the first book but that didn't happen. Neither of the two books had a strong romantic relationship between the characters. We depend upon those descriptions to give us an honest run down of the story. Just not my preferred storyline. I would have loved this book but the author lost me with the constant repetition of the fact that the central , had curly hair and ebony skin! It didn't change the plot. I loved the characters. I was on board, but don't ruin the entire story by pushing ethnicity down the readers throat.
I decided not to read the next book.
This was better than the first book! I still like this story line. It's such a unique way to tell about werewolves that we haven't heard yet! Can't wait until October for book 3! Not as great as the first but it was awesome having some progression in the plot rathe than just world building, although there is a bit more of that.
