Rating (out of 5): 3.5 stars
Hidden by Blood gives you a quick taste (har har) of the Sweetblood series. In the world crafted by Laurie London, some humans have blood vampires find remarkably irresistible. As you may have guessed, these people are called sweetbloods. There’s a faction of vampires who corral these types using them as blood slaves, and another faction out to protect humanity and, in general, stop those jerks.
That’s the world we step into with Hidden by Blood. We meet Finn, a former army ranger, who doesn’t know why he’s being held captive or where, but it’s damn painful. A creepy man comes in every few days to take his blood. He’s been trained for torturous situations, but this is different.
When Brenna discovers the guy she used to date has been taken captive as a blood slave, she hurries to free him. He doesn’t know about vampires, much less that she is one. And his sweetblood calls to her almost as much as his damn good looks.
Brenna will need to finally reveal who she is to Finn. This may result in a light love scene that’s totally sweet and a nice taste for the tone of the series. And, we promise, the end of this novella comes too quickly.
You may enjoy Hidden by Blood more if you’re already read Bonded by Blood (Sweetblood #1) and are already immersed in the world, but either way it’s a good taste of London’s stellar writing and a little something to sate your thirst while waiting on the next full-length Sweetblood novel Embraced by Blood.
