Blood Fever (Watchers #3) by Veronica Wolff
Expected publication: August 7th 2012 by NAL Trade
THERE’S NO PLACE LIKE HOME—EVEN IF HOME IS WHERE THE DEAD LIVE…It’s the start of the fall semester, and a new crop of Acari and Trainees have descended on the Isle of Night. Watcher training has intensified, and Drew has a new roommate named Mei-Ling. But Mei-Ling harbors a dangerous secret that drove the vampires to abduct her against her will. Drew knows she shouldn’t get involved, but she can’t seem to leave her roommate to fend for herself.Luckily, Drew has other things on her mind—like vampire Carden. A blood bond to a brawny, eighteenth-century Scottish bad boy tends to preoccupy a girl. And though she’s still figuring out what this bond means, one thing has become clear: She craves him in a major way.But then bodies start turning up on the island. All the evidence points to the existence of a rogue vampire, and the sinister vampire Alcántara is gunning for Carden, even though Drew has proof that Carden had nothing to do with the murders. Now she has to find the true killer—without endangering Carden, Mei-Ling, or herself… – Goodreads
My Opinion: I really enjoy The Watchers series. I like Drew. She is an awesome character. I love that she thinks for herself and I also love how independent she is. I love that she wanted to break off the bond and that she tried to fight it.
Carden was also a pretty interesting character. I think that he might be my second favorite actually. Mostly because he isn’t like the other vampires on the Isle and that even though he wanted Drew and was bonded to her, he was willing to give her what she wanted. Alcantara was on his back through out the book, and I’m still not sure whether it was because of the attraction felt between Carden and Drew, so he was either jealous or scared of Carden.
Something that I also really enjoyed in this was Mei-Ling. I love how different she was and what the vampires had to do to get her. I also loved what she was able to do with her weapon. I’m also glad that a character was introduced that could be on level with Drew on brains, although they might not be both genius on books, they were both on the same wave-length which was pretty cool, because the other characters all wanted to be there because they have nowhere else to go.
The plot was pretty intriguing. The way that girls are dying and the Vampires are trying to pin this on Carden. It created a pretty interesting scenario in which Mei-Ling and Drew are investigating. My favorite character in this book had to be the witness. The fact that he is human and that he watches and takes care of the things that scare the vampires that most is pretty interesting and that fact that he isn’t scared of them was pretty fun.
Overall: 5 out of 5
