Bloodborn by Karen Kincy

imageBrock Koeman always hated werewolves and Others like them. While trying to trap a werewolf pack, he and his brother Chris were attacked and bitten—becoming what they have always feared and despised. While Chris fights for his life in the hospital, Brock faces another kind of battle: stifling his terrible urge to transform.

When werewolves kidnap him and the girl he loves, Brock discovers what it means to be Other—wondrous new sensations and experiences, overshadowed by constant danger—and the life that awaits him if he can ever accept his fate.

Bloodborn is a companion novel to Karen Kincy’s first novel Other. Other was amazingly unique and incredibly addicting- so I had high hopes for Bloodborn. Thankfully, my high hopes were met. This novel isn’t a typical werewolf story. Brock doesn’t come into being a werewolf like it’s natural to him. He struggles with accepting both what he is and other people like him.

Personally, I prefer Other because I felt like I could connect with the story more, but I’m definitely not going to discourage you from picking up Bloodborn. For those of you who’ve read Other, I highly recommend picking Bloodborn up. It goes more into depth about Brock and his life, where as in Other we just caught a brief glimpse of him.

Karen Kincy is an amazing paranormal YA writer. Since the release of her last book, her writing has been transformed into something even better than it was before. Though her novels are paranormal (which I usually don’t like), Kincy is able to put an interesting spin on her stories that make them more than just the typical YA paranormal read. I highly recommend both Other and Bloodborn, even if you aren’t really into paranormal books.
