Jessica arrives back in town to find her best friend missing and the most powerful witch in the country is blaming her for it. But before they can move to save her, the group is attacked.

On the run, Jessica and Rourke head to the mountains. Several surprises await them, but in order to save her father they are forced to leave for New Orleans early.

Arriving on the Vampire Queen's doorstep unexpectedly, and bringing trouble on their heels, the Sects are thrown into an all out war. The vicious
skirmish ends up forcing the vamps and Jessica to fight on the same team.

The Vamp Queen ends up owing Jessica, but what Jessica doesn't realise is just how soon she'll have to cash it in...


After the brutal cliffhanger that Amanda Carlson left readers with in Hot Blooded I was more than eager to continue the series with Cold Blooded. I did really enjoy the third instalment of the Jessica McClain series, but I still stand on Full Blooded being my favourite of the series to date.

Where the other books in the series focus more on werewolves, demons, and goddess's etc. I really enjoy the change of focus to the witches and sorcerers and the politics of vampires. It adds a nice variety and creates a more fantastical world. And withall the super hot guys, I mean seriously I have never seen a book with as many as this, the world that Jessica McClain lived in is an enticing one that girls and guys alike would want to inhabit. With all the twists and turns the plot has you will be kept on the edge of your seat for the duration of the book.

The world, characters, and the way that Carlson writes puts her at the top of my favourite adult urban fantasy authors among Kelley Armstrong and Patricia Briggs.This series is a great transition from read YA to adult books, its not too sexual but it does have those oh so savoury steamy moments.

The only complaints I can really draw upon for Cold Blooded is that now that Jessica has embraced her powers she seem a little too over confident and because of this she takes on so many challenges that seem a little to much for one person to take on nevermind survive time and time again. Nevertheless I wholeheartedly recommend this series if hot men, a new take on urban fantasy, and action packed plots are your kind of thing definitely make sure you check out the Jessica McClain series and its next instalment, Cold Blooded.
