Very steamy. I'm not a fan of prologues, and this book had two, but after that, it was an enjoyable ride.more
This is a book that was on my radar, but was buried in the to be read pile, until my friend Angela raved about it to me. She and I have very similar tastes in books and she does not gush easily, so I knew if she was excited the book was going to be awesome. I got the book out and started reading and just from the first chapter I could tell this book was going to be great!We begin the story in the past. There are two groups locked in an anceint war that has been raging for centuries. The Lycans and the Slayers. The Lycan are a group of wolves that have been given the gift of human form. They can choose to be human or shift into wolf form to better suit their needs. The benefit of being able to turn into a human is blending into society and survival. They have almost been wiped out several times by the Slayers whose sole mission in life is to wipe all Lycan from the face of the earth. Slayers are born with a natural hatred of Lycan and can think of nothing else except the destruction of the Lycan race. Blood Law centers around two Lycan brothers, Lucian and Rafael, who could not be more different. Once allies, they are now mortal enemies and one person stands in between them, Falon.Falon’s past serves as quite the enigma for much of the book. There are hints dropped left and right and I have my suspicions, but I am going to keep them to myself. What I can tell you about her is she has spirit. She is not a sit on the sidelines kind of girl. She wants to be in the center of the action, fighting for what she believes in and defending what is hers. At the moment, she is not exactly sure what that is, but she is very drawn to Rafael and is pondering making him a part of her life. And let me tell you, the chemistry between these two is explosive! At some points I was almost blushing while reading because of the interactions with these two. Neither Rafael nor Falon is very shy and Karin is not afraid to write some steamy scenes.While the romance is hot, the mythology in this story is what fascinated me the most. I absolutley loved the deep rooted history with the Lycans and the Slayers. Their history spans hundreds of years and Karin makes sure to fill you in on all the details without it feeling like it was thrown in there just for the reader. The way she weaves in the knowledge of the two groups past is seamless and will just peek your curiosity with every new revelation. I am captivated by all the detail in the story and hope to delve into both of the groups pasts in future books.As for the ending of this story. Oh.My.God. Seriously, it was insane! I was up to the very early morning hours finishing this book because I could not put it down and the ending is going to leave you yearning for more. I cannot get this book out of my head. The possibilities for the future and what resolutions will come are spinning through my thoughts and I am desperate for the next book. I am going to have quite a wait because it does not come out until February of 2012. That seems so far! For now though, I will have to be patient and wait it out. I am hoping the wait will be worth it and the next installment will be just as addicting as this one. If you have not read Blood Law and you enjoy this genre I highly recommend it!more
Quick & Dirty: An explosive new series with a captivating mythology, intriguing characters, and pulse-pounding action.Opening Sentence: In medieval Europe, wolves were feared and looked upon as the scourge of the earth.Excerpt: HereThe Review:Ms. Tabke introduces her heroine, Falon, who is a dynamic and gutsy character. Falon has an uncertain past and a complicated future. She’s an orphan and knows very little about her birth parents. Every day is a struggle for Falon to survive. She can’t make her rent and she eats by shamefully stealing from Del’s Grocery. On one particularly bleak night, Falon couldn’t ignore her hunger pains. Deciding to go on a “food” run, she runs into trouble at Del’s Grocery. As fate would have it, Rafael happens upon the increasingly popular Del’s. Rafael, the undisputed alpha of the Vulkasin pack, is on a Slayer hunt. Rafael’s curiosity is piqued because the Slayers clearly want this average human girl. Rafael decides to save Falon from certain death, healing her from her injuries. As events progress, Rafael ends up marking Falon as his life mate. Unfortunately, this is the beginning of the end for Rafael and Falon. A vengeful foe steps out of the shadows to claim what’s rightfully his, and will stop at nothing until he gets his revenge.Falon has very tough choices to make, yet she remains strong under pressure. She shares such a passionate connection with Rafael, and establishes her own identity. I really enjoyed seeing their relationship develop and it added so much depth to an already intriguing story. Rafael is an amazing alpha male. It’s been awhile since I was this emotionally caught up and engrossed by a character. Rafael’s presence easily grips the reader because he’s such an authentic character. When he’s troubled, you feel it. When he’s highly sexual, you feel it. When he’s in agony and let’s his inner wolf out, you root for him to exact his will because it’s for the pack and he’s alpha. The pack is all that matters – well, that and Falon.Blood Law satisfies on many levels. The sexual tension is intense and the romance is deeply moving. One of the strongest elements of this story is the mythology. The history between the Lycans and Slayers is riveting and complex. The Lycans have been hunted since medieval times, constantly defending their bloodlines, packs and running from the power of the deformed great wolf, Fenrir. The “Godfather” of Slayers is Peter Corbet – aka Peter the Wolf. Peter stopped at nothing to eradicate Lycans in England and Scotland. I can’t tell you too much more about the lore because I would be spoiling this amazing story for you, but it’s layered and interwoven beautifully into the story. I loved everything about this world.Overall, Blood Law is an extraordinary story. It’s gripping, steeped in emotion, and filled with tension. Ms. Tabke succeeds in delivering complex characters and a fresh take on Lycan mythology. Betrayal, treachery and danger abound as loyalties are tested, and the lines between justice and vengeance are blurred. The Blood Law must be upheld and Blood Rights won’t be denied.Notable Scene:Rafael raised both of his swords over his head. “Vengeance is all mine tonight, Slayer!” Despite the added Slayers and the loss of a handful of his men, Rafael’s confidence soared. He was at the pinnacle tonight. Nothing could hurt him! With the help of his magnificent Berserkers, who were making hash out of anything that got in their way, and the power of the ring, he would lead his pack to victory.Slayers were smart, but he was smarter. Slayers killed because of an eight-hundred-year-old command by a long-dead king. Lycans killed to survive and to avenge the deaths of their loved ones. Tonight, he would avenge hundreds of slain Lycans, including his own mother and father.He looked up at the ceiling two stories high to several heavy looped metal chains hanging from a swing arm mounted from a think steel beam. He leapt straight up, grabbing into a think, blunt hook looped over the swing arm. He shoved the hook up, freeing it. Securing his right foot in the bend of the hook and wrapping the chain around his calf for leverage, Rafael did a free fall. In a wide, forceful swath, he swung down with both swords drawn, hacking at the rush of Slayers. Bullets zinged past him as the Slayers opened fire, several hitting his vest but not penetrating. As he came in for his first hard hit, he took several Slayers out. As the swing reached its full rotation, he unwound his leg from the chains and leapt onto the bottom of the east ramp that led to the platform, then bounded onto the platform where the girl stood screaming bloody murder.The Blood Moon Rising Series:1.
