Revue de presse

"Carlson has crafted a real roller coaster of a book and series!"—RT Book Reviews on Red Blooded

"Amanda Carlson's debut novel is a fast-paced tale with a cliffhanger ending that left me panting for more. Full Blooded left me on the edge of my seat from cover to cover."—New York Times bestselling author Faith Hunter

"Amanda Carlson's Full Blooded is full of all good things: danger, excitement, an original, LIKEABLE heroine and some great mythological mayhem."—New York Times bestselling author Karen Chance

"A wild, wolfy ride that will have you howling for more!"—Kristen Painter, author of Blood Rights on Full Blooded

"Picking up after the life-changing events of Hot Blooded, Carlson doesn't give her heroine or readers a chance to breathe as Cold Blooded starts off with a literal bang. Besides delivering terrific action sequences, Carlson is doing an exceptional job of exploring and unveiling the hidden depths of her characters."—RT Book Reviews (Top Pick) on Cold Blooded

"Rising star Carlson is rapidly building a rich world filled with intrigue, betrayal and hidden prophecy; all in all, this series second is a magnificent showing."—RT Books Reviews (Top Pick) on Hot Blooded

Présentation de l'éditeur

Jessica is going to Hell.

After settling a fragile truce between the vampires, werewolves and witches, the last thing Jessica wants to do is face the demons head on. But when the Prince of Hell kidnapped her brother, he set into motion a chain of events that even Jessica doesn't have the power to stop.

Now, Jessica must go into battle again. But hell is a whole new beast - new rules, more dangerous demons, and an entirely foreign realm. And when Jessica is dropped into the Underworld too soon, without protection or the help of her friends, she must figure out just how powerful she can be . . . or she will never make it out alive.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 THE JESSICA McCLAIN SERIES: A WELL-CRAFTED, DELIGHTFULLY ESCAPIST, BARREL FULL OF FUN! 25 septembre 2014
Par The Literacy Advocate - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
NOTE: SERIES READING ORDER APPEARS AT END OF REVIEW!

The Jessica McClain series is an action-packed, fantasy-filled, paranormal urban fiction series peppered with romance among "mates" of various supernatural and human species. In this genre-bending series, the heroine, feisty and funny Jessica McClain confronts all kinds of 'supe' bad-guys/gals, and always manages to figure out (or be cosmically thrust into) the way to save the day. Along the way, the consequences of her choices and actions (always accompanied by a hefty dose of Murphy's law) create entanglements which, happily, the reader cannot always see coming. There is a sense of roller-coaster riding action throughout each book in this series, and the only thing we can be certain of is that Jessica and her pals will have very little downtime (no mundane, everyday activities in these books) before the next crisis or cataclysm arrives at their doorstep.

In RED BLOODED, which picks up immediately where COLD BLOODED ends, Jessica is inadvertently transported to the Underworld, before she is able to finish the training given her by the witches (under the direction of coven leader Tally) and her mate Rourke (one of the planet's strongest supernaturals). The majority of the story takes place in the Underworld, where Jessica is caught between the hidden agendas of many creature baddies, including Lili (a descendant of Lilith), and both the Demon Princess and the Demon Prince of Hell (who's had it out for Jessica for quite some time). Eventually Jessica's loved ones, and a few powerful allies whom she definitely does not love, arrive to help, and the action, suspense, and mystery as they try to ascertain whom to trust and whom to kill is quite clever. Add in Jessica's droll sense of humor as she is caught in impossible circumstances, and the heat generated between her and Rourke, and we have an all-around smashing story! As we have come to expect with Ms. Carlson's books, Jessica manages to save the day, but right around the corner, on the last page, is the next.....well, we'll have to wait for the next book to find out.

My only criticism of RED BLOODED, and the reason this is a 4-star review rather than a 5-star, is that the character of Rourke, Jessica's mate, was sadly marginalized. Rourke is so fascinating and compelling a character that he is truly worthy of his own book in the series. If Ms. Carlson must stay true to her single point-of-view voice (Jessica), then I am hoping she will see her way to expanding the character of Rourke. Not even the romance scene (sadly, only one) was taken to the level which Rourke is screaming to get to...and which Jessica would clearly be one hundred percent into...Rourke simply deserves more. In fact, there is tremendous subplot potential for many of Ms. Carlson's wonderful characters; I'd love to see any of them explored more fully, rather than the simple anecdotes they are represented by as they help Jessica move the plot forward. The author truly has a knack for creating well-rounded, unique characters which spring to life on the page; now we just need to see them given their due.

The JESSICA McCLAIN SERIES is a well-crafted, delightfully escapist barrel full of fun! Jump on!

It is best to follow the SERIES READING ORDER (as of 9/2014):
1. BLOODED - an e-novella (only); Jessica's backstory; this may be omitted or read at any time (April 2012)
2. FULL BLOODED (June 2012)
3. HOT BLOODED (April 2013)
4. COLD BLOODED (October 2013)
5. RED BLOODED (September 2014)

Red Blooded brings even more action, plot twists, and prophecies! It is nonstop goodness! It all starts with Jessica preparing for her impending trip to the Underworld. The witches are throwing demon magic at her to teach her how to defend herself against it, but instead, it sends her straight to Hell early! Without her team with her, and not completing her training, Jessica has to improvise. She’s got to figure out where she landed and how to get to wherever her brother is being held, get him out, and get them home all on her own. Definitely not easy especially when the Underworld is full of all kinds of nasty creatures that come out at night, and a blistering sun during the day.

The majority of Red Blooded is set in the Underworld and I loved it! When Jessica first arrived, it’s not at all how she (or I) pictured it. It’s very clean and orderly, which was strange. But that’s only one small section. There are place where the walls are alive and full of veins! There’s sludge, and deadly creatures and darkness! It’s also impossible to tell how time is passing, since it’s not in synch with the human plane. For instance, Jessica’s brother was taken 5 days ago, but he’s been held captive and tortured for two months! Jessica needs to hurry up and do what she’s doing and get back, since there’s not telling how long she’s been gone, or what could happen in that time!

We’re also introduced to a very interesting new character in Red Blooded. Jessica stumbles upon someone who says they can help her, but also admits to being extremely dangerous which is exactly why she’s locked away. Lily is not what she seems at all, but she holds some important information regarding the supposed prophecies about Jessica. It’s good stuff to know, if they can tell what’s true and what was fabrication. Of course, there’s a lot more that no one knows exactly, and everyone was just as confused as me by the end of it all! But it’s clear that something huge is coming!

I very much enjoyed Red Blooded! It had none of the overly chatty problems I had with the previous book (Jessica still does talk a lot, but she doesn’t repeat herself nearly as much!). The pacing was great, the plot was engaging, the world building was fantastic! And in the midst of all that crazy, there’s still a little time for romance! Of course, it ends on a cliffhanger! I need Pure Blooded ASAP!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Sheer delight! 9 septembre 2014

Wow I do not believe just how much I loved this book! I have always enjoyed this series with its unique heroine and it's surely a must read for fans of urban fantasy but with this instalment the author has taken it up a notch and then some! There is so much happening in this book and the heroine Jessica is well and truly in the thick if it. She has survived so much already and fought so hard for those she loves but when the Prince of Hell targets her brother she is really going to need to get out her big girl panties ! Anyone else would run screaming in the opposite direction but not this girl no she will stop at nothing to get Tyler back and if that means quite literally going to Hell well bring it on!
So much comes to fruition in this book. Jessica is much feared as a long foretold prophecy mentions her causing widespread chaos and change in Hell so naturally as far as the Prince of Hell is concerned taking her out is a priority but nothing is ever straight forward. Somehow Jessica has to find a way to get in , get Tyler and then somehow get them both out again but even with the witches on her side things have a way of going wrong. Jessica may have a powerful Lycan form but it's the magical properties in her blood that create all kinds of trouble and speaking of trouble in the Underworld there's only so much a girl can hide from. Jessica needs to keep all her wits sbout her and trust her inner wolf as she takes a journey that will truly test her mettle .
I loved this book! Yes I have always liked this series but the non stop roller coaster ride the author gives us here was simply adrenaline filled! There's so much humour written into it as well from clumsy antics to demon piglets! The author has written in such a way that I had pictures in my mind of a truly unusual version of Hell that felt both awe inspiring and yet at the same time as creepy as well, Hell!
Jessica has come into her own and fully embraced all that she can be. For most of this book she has none of her usual allies with her but fans of Roarke need not fear he is still a very real presence in her life and as this is urban fantasy the sex takes a back seat but that does not mean it lacks romance . For me personally it's the little things like the grumpy Ray manning up and accepting the changes that life is throwing about that makes this action packed story so very good. Nothing is going to be easy though and both old and new enemies will make strange bedfellows as our heroine journeys through the Underworld. Jessica is truly a heroine to get behind and finally (thankfully) it seems as if both this reader and the characters realise that. Does she rescue her brother? Well as this is Jessica you can be assured of one thing and that's the fact that she will keep going no matter what . There was very little pack involvement in this story which might disappoint some readers but the ending opens up a whole new can of worms and if the next instalment is as fast paced and exciting as this then I for one will be panting to get my hands on it. I have always liked these stories but this book I loved. This series is a delight to read and I heartily recommend it.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 I hate to admit it because I am a HUGE fan of the Jessica McClain series 9 septembre 2014

I hate to admit it because I am a HUGE fan of the Jessica McClain series, but RED BLOODED just didn't do it for me. Carlson's version of hell was ok, but not that exciting. The Lili storyline was very predictable and I really hate that once again Jessica was away from most of those she loved and the wolves for a good chunk of the book. On a positive note, we do get some really good answers in regards to the prophecies that have plagued Jessica from birth.

I'm hoping the story goes back to the feel of the earlier Jessica books (the ending does seem promising) because I'm not sure if I would continue enjoying the series if the shift in feel is permanent.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Magnificent!!! 15 septembre 2014
Par Maghon @ Happy Tails and Tales - Publié sur Amazon.com

Dude!!! This whole series is completely action packed, but this one… THIS ONE!! Like woah! I mean enemies everywhere, and everyone is always trying to kill her, and then enemies become allies, and crazy demons, and I am still sitting her with my mouth on the floor. Somebody get me some screws to put my jaw back in place. Jess has completely gone over the top this time. Anyways, Jess has gone to hell to get her brother, but of course with her, nothing ever goes according to plan. She was supposed to time her entrance, and have people with her, except it didn’t go that way, she is dumped unprepared into hell by herself. Heh! Jess is one of the best heroines I’ve EVER read. Her powers are growing and changing, and it seems the world wants her to stay down, or just die. She is such a crafty chick. LOL
She finally gets some back up but let me tell you that she goes on a whole adventure by herself. You get to learn some of the inner workings of hell, and those who play big roles there. And by the time she gets back up, all hell has broken loose and it’s like every demon has come to see the fireworks. :) Hehehe I just saw my pun… All hell broke loose, in hell :) ok excuse my giggle for a moment. And of course, she gets to met up with most of the normal characters, but don’t expect them for most of the book. And we meet some new bigger players, and I suspect we will meet even scarier people in the next book which I am already dying for!!
The world building especially of hell if magnificent. I loved the creeptastic feel of everything and the different types of demons and creatures that live there. The chupacabra is one! And the Prince, well he is something all on his own. Hell I bet he could have his own book! And the writing, flawless as always. I could not put it down. If you aren’t reading this series, I don’t think we could be friends. It’s just too awesome!!! I am all about the awesome action, the gritty feel, and the magnificent cast! 5 WOLFY PAWS!!! Majorly awesome!
