Title: Full Blooded
Series: Jessica McClain, #1
Author: Amanda Carlson
Rating: 3 Shooting Stars

Born the only female in an all male race, Jessica McClain isn’t just different—she’s feared.

After living under the radar for the last twenty-six years, Jessica is thrust unexpectedly into her first change, a full ten years late. She wakes up and finds she’s in the middle of a storm. Now that she’s become the only female full-blooded werewolf in town, the supernatural world is already clamoring to take a bite out of her and her new Pack must rise up and protect her.

But not everyone is on board. The werewolf Rights of Laws is missing text and the superstitious werewolves think that Jessica means an end to their race. It doesn’t help when Jessica begins to realize she’s more. She can change partway and hold her form, and speak directly to her wolf. But the biggest complication by far is that her alpha father can't control her like he can the rest of his wolves.

When a mercenary who’s been hired by the vampires shows up to extract information about the newly turned werewolf only days after her change, they find themselves smack in the middle of a war and there's no choice but to run together. When it’s up to Jessica to negotiate her release against her father’s direct orders, she chooses to take an offer for help instead. In exchange, Jessica must now swear an oath she may end up repaying with her life.

This book starts out with Jessica, being the only daughter to a pack alpha werewolf. She got away from the pack to live a normal life for several years, until one day she actually turns into a werewolf herself. Now Jessica has lots of problems. She is the only female werewolf ever! She has lots of people after her, out to kill her, or just take her for some strange reason.

Her father and his trusted few are going to help her through all of this. But Jessica has a lot to learn about being a werewolf. We get to see her struggle with the change, and all of the people coming after her.

Over all the book was okay. I liked the plot, and the idea of the story. I just couldn't connect with the characters. However, I did like Jessica. She was very strong, and brave. I really admired that about her. But the end was bad. It was a major cliffhanger, that left me frustrated. Now I'm not sure I want to read more, but I am curious as to what's going to happen. So we will see.
