Mack, who actually looks more like this… ran off at the end of the first book and has been bouncing around trying to stay hidden and just make enough money to not become homeless. Corrigan, the Lord Alpha has labeled her a rogue were mostly so that he can justify that he is searching for her because he still doesn't know what she is and he thinks she ran off to get away from the new alpha of her pack.
Then, she moves on and gets a different cash-in-hand job at a dusty little books store with a strange owner that seems to know a little too much about the Lore. This book was better than just okay, but I did not like it as well as the first one. View all 7 comments. Jan 28, Penny rated it it was ok Shelves: u-read-urban-fantasy , reviewed. I gave the second book a try in hopes that this time there will be some romance in it, but no, again, no romance. So disappointing I was looking for an UF Romance, so this series is not for me. Bloodfire Blood Destiny 1.
Mac Attack --I love this nickname!
Her strong moral code and sense of honor often override her self-preservation and good sense. Still, these are the things that make her endearing. While Corrigan is just delish. Mmm, hmm. Maybe that is why I will continue reading on to see how it all develops between these two. Until then, on to book three Jul 16, Cassandra rated it really liked it. My Thoughts - 4 out of 5 Unicorns - I really liked it!!! Love it!! I listened to this ebook while mowing quite a while ago, but life interfered for a while before I could get my review written.
This is the 2nd book in the series. This is a series for adults. Initially, I was confused about what was going on. I think this is because I have not read book 1 yet. I do own the book though. I plan on reading book 1 and maybe listening to book 2 a My Thoughts - 4 out of 5 Unicorns - I really liked it!!! I plan on reading book 1 and maybe listening to book 2 again afterward because you never know what I might have missed in my confusion.
I was thoroughly entertained by the story and narrator whose accent I love. The book had plenty of mystery and intrigue. The book was entertaining, and I definitely want to read the whole series to see what happens with Mack. I recommend this book to paranormal fans because it has a bit of everything and is definitely a wonderful story. Aug 08, Taz-xo rated it it was amazing Shelves: fave-series , werewolves-shifters , urban-fantasy , alpha-male , vampires , witches-magic. I did quite enjoy book 1 but I enjoyed this book so much more and finished the book quite eager to head straight to book 3.
This instalment felt like it had a little bit more direction than the first book and the story flowed really well. I liked Mack a little bit more in tis book also. I felt like we got to see a different side of her from previous and I also liked that we got to see some other types of supernaturals also. Definitely a good continuation to this series and I give it 4 stars.
Dec 17, Literati Literature Lovers rated it really liked it. Urban Fantasy, not Sexcapades. Ward, Thea Harrison, and Larissa Ione, that focus on the characters romantic pursuits of each other; than this might not be the series for you. As these authors deal with just one couple per book and need to propel the physical relationship quickly. I adore these authors but have been reading in this genre long enough to understand who writes what type of urban fan Urban Fantasy, not Sexcapades.
If you like 'romantic' build up from authors like Ilona Andrews, Kristen Painter, and Patricia Briggs where a relationship is built block by block. Where the heroine and hero antagonize each other more than swoon. Then this is a series to put on your radar. Harper has a heroine in Mack who really is clueless when it comes to what she is. She is clueless as to who she is. She has been hiding all her life and had been hit with lots of revelations but not a lot of answers.
So she struggles and makes mistakes. She is a character who has the weight of the world on her shoulders. She really is scared to death, but as best as she can, she puts a brave face on the situation. New characters are introduce in this book, as she struggles to live after leaving Cornwall.
Corrigan is sprinkled into the text at just the right moments. This book is a bridge from Mack's old life to her future. Re-read: View 2 comments. Nov 03, S. Higbee rated it really liked it. Enjoyable sequel to Bloodfire, taking Mack into more scrapes and adventures while giving us more information about her mysterious origins. A nicely snarky protagonist. Recommended for fans of shape-shifting, paranormal adventures. Apr 25, PageTurner rated it it was ok Shelves: pnr-uf. The grammar and spelling is horrible!!! It really took away from my enjoyment of this story.
Mack felt like a broken record with the "I must keep my secret or the brethren will kill everyone. The book is ok but I'm still not sold on the series. Mar 19, Jess rated it liked it. I don't think I'll continue. I only read this book for the romance, but it's progressing too slowly. And based on the reviews I've read of upcoming books, apparently the romance doesn't get any better. So, this is the end for me.

Do we have to go on and on with the relationship thing never quite happening? Who are these people, the Virgin Mary? I just love the snarky humor in the series as well as Mack, the main character. The world building is exquisite and the action is so great it will keep you on the edge of your seat. Mack has been struggling to make it on her on as a rogue. She has been working as a waitress at a bar; but, when a customer feels her up just one too many times, she manhandles him.
The boss is none too pleased and fires her. She is desperate to "Bloodmagic" is another fabulous addition to the 'Blood Destiny' series. She is desperate to find a way to survive but no one will hire her. That is until she stumbles into a dusty old bookstore and meets Mrs. Alcoon, the owner. Alcoon is a bit strange but hires Mack on a part time basis. While Mack is somewhat relieved, soon she encounters a fae, Solus, who desperately wants to know what she is. He even goes so far as to transport her into the bedroom of the Lord Alpha himself, Corrigan as a means of blackmailing her.
She finally relents and surprisingly he keeps her secret. Then, one day, Mrs. Alcoon enlists the assistance of a friend of hers to help Mack shield her scent. Unfortunately, the necklace the woman places on her neck causes Mack to manifest the power of fire at her fingertips and puts Mrs. Alcoon in a coma stasis until the Ministry of Mages can investigate. Mack enlists Solus' assistance in whisking her away to safety while she attempts to deal with the Mages. Now she is on the run from the Alpha, the Mages and the human police. If she is to survive, she will have to learn to control her anger and call upon every ounce of strength she can muster.
There is plenty of action in this story and as I stated earlier, the plot kept me on the edge of my seat. Comma Press have conducted interviews over the years with some of the guest agents and publishing insiders, to help you find out more about their roles, top tips and opinions on prevalent publishing issues. We have uploaded those videos to our Youtube channel and, whether you attended a fair or not, you can learn more about literary agents, booksellers, editors, pitching your manuscript and more by watching the videos, which are collected in a NCWGF playlist on our Youtube channel.
Every delegate was assigned two appointments with publishing professionals, having made a first, second and third choice preference of genre when they booked their place. They were given their appointments the week before the event so that they had time to prepare for their specific pitch. At the appointment, delegates had 15 minutes to pitch their work.
It is up to delegates how to approach this but a few short extracts, and an overview summary of your work would do nicely. If delegates didn't feel that their work was ready to pitch, many used the time to pick the brains of their matched professional. They live and breathe publishing - it was a great opportunity to ask those questions people didn't want to ask in front of anyone else! Yasmin Chopin walks us through her experience in a guest blog.

A master thesis is the final work on an academic education and the result is presented in report form. A two-year master thesis consists of 30 credits and equals 20 weeks of full time work. A one-year master thesis consists of 15 credits and equals 10 weeks of full time work. The thesis work can be written in cooperation with or on behalf of a company or an external organization. In addition to proposing a solution to a concrete problem, the student can contribute new ideas and perspectives that can be used further.
This often gives students a good insight into how theoretical knowledge is applied in practice as well as opportunities for new contacts in the working life. If the thesis is done on behalf of an external party, the same requirements are set for academic content as for all other degree projects at the department. This may be useful to keep in mind when the task is formulated so that no uncertainties arise later. Unfortunately, we do not have the possibility to handpick students.
