Review / Free Books - Blood Ties: The First by Rustin Petrae

Blood Ties: The First
Bane Pack Book 1

Goodreads blurb:  All Kendra wanted was a change.

After a bad day at work, she wants this more than anything. She goes to an old friend for comfort and decides it’s time for that change to happen. So she gets a tattoo in a last ditch effort to make people see her differently. She never would’ve bargained for what comes next. She’s seeing better than she ever has in her life. She can smell and even tell the difference between scents. She can hear a fly buzzing from fifty feet away. She’s faster. Stronger.

Oh…and now she’s extremely hot.

But is the price of these changes too high? And what about the shocking revelation of who-and what-her biological father really is?

Sometimes change can be good…and then there’s the other times.

My Thoughts - 4 out of 5 unicorns - I liked it!!

I liked this book, and it was a new take on werewolves.  Poor Kendra has had a tough life and now she is learning things she never knew about her friends and family.  There is intrigue and betrayal throughout the book.  I was really sucked into the story for the first 2 parts, and then it cooled off a little which I attribute to this being the first book in the series.  I will definitely continue reading this story because there are many things that we don’t know yet, and I’m looking forward to seeing where the author goes this with.  This is a new author for me, and I think he did a nice job with the story.

Right now both of his books are FREE on Smashwords:
