All the drama, action, and romance of Veronica Wolff’s The Watchers series returns in its third — and quite possibly, best installment yet, Blood Fever.
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…
The sexiness of Drew’s suitors is amped up this time, with the Scottish rogue vampire Carden in full seduction mode. All the sexual tension that’s been building in the first two novels finally sees some fruition in Blood Fever— and the results are well worth the wait!
Wolff continues to simultaneously peel back and build up the mystery of the Isle of Night and the vampires it houses, creating a series that is quick and delightful to read, and leaves readers hanging onto every word and waiting eagerly for the next installment.
I don’t know where Wolff is headed with her series, but it’s a ride I am happy to continue tagging along for. Blood Feveris in stores now.
