Blood Instinct (Blackthorn, #6)Time to review the sixth book, Blood Instinct, people.. My reviews for the previous books are herehere and here.We are only left with two books now. I have a feeling we might be getting even more books in this world. I dunno. Gah. We are soo close. And it is getting so harder to review each book with passing time cos every book is soo great so far and just, I only have nice things to say about it.

You know I love this series and I have loved this series more and more with each new book. And now we are only left with two books which makes me kinda sad in contrast to how happy I was that there were 4 more books. But alas this series is going to end and I will miss these characters. 
I still love this series because every time with each instalment Lindsay ante's up the game. 

Jask and Sophia handle some pretty serious stuff this instalment along with the rest of our cast. I thought the beginning or shall I say the first half of this book was a bit slow as compared to how things were at Blackthorn. I dunno how to explain it cos it was all logical how the pacing was but in my head I thought things should have been more fast paced. I loved loved the second half of the book. And that ending. 

We got to witness so many revelations and soo many plot twists--the meandering path that this book drew based on the previous books and the upcoming books set the whole thing on fire. I have already told y'all Lindsay writes some crazy good stuff--she knows what she's doing.. She is handling everything so smoothly and I dunno how everything will play out at the end cos Lindsay sure is a genius writer.. So gahhh.. Be prepared to get shocked and what not cos the pendulum that began swinging when I started this instalment hit it's mark by the end of it.. 

So, after reading this instalment I think my favorite couple is Caleb and Leila. And they are not our narrators for the next book. Tehehe. 

We already know the title of the next book.. Blood Bound and we might be getting it later this year, I think.. I hope we do.. Anyway, these last four instalments had multiple POV's and we got to see the inner workings of almost every nook and cranny of Blackthorn.. 

I am more nervous now for how everything will play out.. Gosh, I so want to see this world on TV.. Goodness.. 


Special thanks to Bookouture and NetGalley and Lindsay.

About Blood Instinct:

Sophia McKay has always had a reckless streak, but falling for lycan leader Jask Tao gave her something to live for. Now, cursed with a serryn bloodline, a darkness inside Phia is awakening. A darkness she knows could prove deadly to those she loves most.

Approaching a blue moon, Jask Tao and his pack are living close to the edge due to a delay getting the herbs required to stop their morphing. Worse still, the growing strength of Phia’s serryn powers are dangerously provoking the lycan in Jask.

At a time when Jask and Phia need each other more than ever, their very passion has become a poison that puts both their lives at risk.

With Sirius Throme, leader of the Global Council, on the verge of invading Blackthorn – working together is the only chance of survival. But Jask is holding on to a secret that could just blow everything apart.

And so is Phia.

Will the truth destroy them all?

About Lindsay:
