The three novellas in Zoe Winters’ Blood Lust trilogy — Kept, Claimed, and Mated tell the story of how three couples in her world find true love and hook up. The series is a fast-paced and well-done introduction to the world of the Preternaturals series. (The full-length novel Save My Soul will be the next installment.)
You can’t write about Winters’ work without mentioning that she is an indie publisher — see? — and then remarking on how professional her presentation is — see? Well, she is. And it is.
I’ve enjoyed all three novellas. The stories are fresh and complex and full of smart humor. Sentences like “Anthony has minions?” and “Cole didn’t have time to listen to his beta’s excuses.” Hilarious in context, delivered by an excellent story teller.
Oh, and as to the which did I like best question: Claimed — but only by a hair’s breadth.
I’m so glad I read these novellas. I heartily recommend them all.
