Wood Point Academy is not at all what I expected. For one thing, it looks like a cross between military school and Buckingham Palace. Everyone stares, the floors shine so bright you can see your reflection in them from a mile away, and no one smiles. Unless they're kicking your butt in the process.

At least I've got plenty to take my mind off the fact that my psycho cousin, Miles De'Luca, keeps calling and declaring his love and promising to come for me just as soon as he's destroyed anyone standing in our way. Wes isn't going to like that idea. So between Miles, Wood Point's evil welcoming committee, and the drill sergeant hottie trainer from hell, I just keep asking myself, how did I end up here?

Cold Blood is Book 2 in the Dirty Blood series. To read more about the Dirty Blood series visit

In this part of the story we meet Alex, Cambria, and Logan.

Tara goes away to Woodpoint Academy (Hunter School) and meets Cambria and Logan. Both Hunters in training. They are the misfits and outsiders of the school so Tara fits into their click since she is a Hybrid. No one at the school wants to be friends with Tara since she is mixed blood.

Miles DeLuca has a plan and what he wants is Tara. Tara is discussed by this since his plan includes her being his mate and they are cousins..... YUCK. So Miles tells Tara he will come for her once his project is complete.

Alex is assigned as Tara's trainer and he likes to run a lot. Tara hates this task but is grateful for  it in the end. Alex likes Tara a lot and this complicates things for Tara since she is seeing Wes. The problem is Wes is not around. Wes is trying to take Jack's place as the Leader of The Cause but a lot of the following don't want him because he is a hybrid. Wes does not like Alex's feelings for Tara but I feel that Wes's character does appreciate the fact that Alex will look after her and will try to watch over her. Alex knows Tara can handle herself and lets her just BE. Tara likes that Alex has confidence in her. 

At the very end it is revealed what Miles project is and it will change the world as they know it. Tara is changing and becoming more ANIMAL and no one is sure why or what it will mean for Tara.

Rating: 2 1/2 Stars
