Title: Bloodlust
Series: Rise of the Iliri #1
Author: Auryn Hadley
Rating: 

On a world where metal is nearly non-existent, a war for steel has waged for more than a decade. The front lines are populated by pallid iliri and iliri-human crossbreds. Seen as little more than beasts, their lives are cheap and easily replaced, destroying their culture as the body count rises. Being purebred, Salryc Luxx will die, she just wants to make sure it counts. That's why she applied for elite forces. 

Becoming a Black Blade means that, for the first time, humans would have to show her respect. They do the impossible, and the country calls them heroes. Military command just hasn't realized it's because the Blades have a secret. They're all iliran crossbreds. Their innate abilities make them the perfect soldiers, even if they're a pack of predators. It's the reason the enemy wants to exterminate their species. The intercepted crate of ancient history proves it. So why was it heading to Parliament, not an enemy outpost? 

The Black Blades are caught in the middle. The enemy wants to slaughter them. Their own country wants to enslave them. Their leader wants them to act human – but that's impossible. They're iliri. If military command finds out, the Black Blades will be disbanded, ripping apart the only family Sal has ever known. And now, the enemy is on their tail. 

But there's a chance she can save not only her pack but her entire species. History says iliri were perfected by men. Maybe it's time for them to see the monster they created.

    

Sal is a pure iliri, and because of this she is treated as less than human. She knows she will die young so she wants to become a Black Bade to make that happen in an honorable way. However, that seems to be more trouble than she thought. As she tries to become a Black Blade, things are getting harder and harder for her at camp, and even though she's doing better than most that may not be what it takes to become a Black Blade. But, Sal is different, and she's not going to give up. 

This book opened your eyes to a new world where things are not always fair, and sometimes people will do everything they can to make sure they get what they really want. I thought this book was very interesting, and a great start to this series, but it wasn't great. I liked it, but I felt like it could have been more.

Excerpt


I had no time to stop and think.
I had to fight.
I had to hurt.
I had to protect.
Feeling someone behind me, I let loose with the bat, a scream erupting from my throat. Someone caught the bat and wrapped an arm around my waist. I tried kicking out. He dodged my feet and said hurriedly in my ear, “Damn, Strattan. It’s me, Channing. Stop!”
Channing.
He was friendly.
Stop.
I sagged in his arms, looking for Mason. Where was he? He was circling a guy, still fighting.
I started forward, but Channing caught my arm. “Whoa. Chill.”
I growled as I yanked my hand free and started forward again, but Channing grabbed my arm once more.
He got in front of me, holding his other hand up. “Whoa, whoa, whoa. Look. He’s fine. We’re here. He’s got that. Look. Look, Sam.”
My senses began to calm. The black around my eyesight faded. I could see more normally, and the buzzing in my ears subsided. I gulped for breath, tasting salt and dust in my mouth.
Channing was right. Mason’s eyes were deadly, but alert, his mouth set in a flat line. His shoulders were tense, but he looked in control.
