BITTERROOT Part 1 by Heather Hildenbrand & SM Reine

Category: Young Adult, Paranormal
Publication: September 21st, 2015;Elephantine Publishing
Purchase: Amazon, B&N, iBooks

Seventeen year-old Regan Vuk has lived her whole life under the shadow of her future: the pack alpha. She is fast, smart, and determined. According to her own pack members, she is a shoo-in. But Regan’s dad has a secret.

Seventeen year-old Charlie spent her adolescence drifting from place to place with a mother desperate to hide her illegitimate daughter from the unforgiving reality of werewolf pack dynamics. All Charlie has ever wanted is to know her father–and the family that’s been kept from her all these years. But most of all, she wants a place to belong in the world. Where she doesn’t have to pretend she can’t sprout fur and paws at will. Being kidnapped on her way home from prom was not she Charlie had in mind.

When Charlie finds out the only way to fit in with her new family is to defeat her long-lost sister for the role of alpha, she refuses. That is until she learns that the strange and alluring vampire she’s befriended, Owen, is the same vampire prince that’s been promised the winner.

Regan has no doubt that, although she loathes the vampires, it will be her who “wins” Owen.

Only problem: Charlie’s already fallen for him.

Bitterroot is a Young Adult Paranormal with a dose of sibling rivalry… Who will you root for?


Mama’s Thoughts:

Serial novels usually just get me too antsy and impatient to read before the entire series is out, and while I am certainly anxiously awaiting the next installment, I am happy to have been lucky enough to read this first part of Bitterroot.  The two authors’ voices shine in each of their characters, and lend to the differences in personality one would expect in estranged sisters.   There were times when Regan drove me crazy, but given her upbringing her behaviour towards Charlie isn’t too surprising.  Charlie on the other hand really impressed me with her ability to keep it cool in some seriously screwed up situations.  I definitely want to know more about Carter and Owen and how it will all play out, but it would have been nice for the story to have a bit more bones and a little less flash.  I’m definitely an interested fan and would absolutely recommend that you read Bitterroot if you enjoy fantasy and/or paranormal at all.  4.5 claws *rawr*
