Book Ten of 2014: WISDOM by Amanda Hocking


Wisdom – the fourth book in the My Blood Approves series…
For her eighteenth birthday, Alice Bonham takes a vacation to Australia only to have her trip cut short by an unexpected murder. While Alice tries to understand what happened, she regrets some of the choices she’s made, especially the more permanent ones.
On top of that, the child vampire is running loose, and its attracting some very unwanted attention…

I actually loved this book the best out of the whole series. It was fast paced and a lot of the everyday life aspects took the back burner for the essence of the book. I always saw Alice as a bit of a leading lady and she did grow in that direction in the previous books, but it is this one that she finds her niche.

Amanda Hocking makes the relationship issues and discoveries believable. The baddies were bad, but not in your face all the time. Instead they would make their presence known, rough up people a bit, and then proceed to do their own thing which ultimately involved the good guys.

I love that Alice has found the purpose that has been unknown through the whole series. It was the one thing that I didn’t like about her, she had no drive. Her only drive was Jack and being a vampire, but once that happened she was beginning to realize that she needed more. Which shows that Alice matured. Kudos, Hocking.

I know that there are whispers of another book or that the fans would like one, but Amanda Hocking isn’t too sure what to do. The love triangle is kaputs, but I always thought there wasn’t much of a triangle. It was more like an angle with a little knob dangling down. Honestly, I would love to see more of the world with the vampire hunters (you’ll see). If Amanda Hocking can somehow weave the story for many years in the future, I think that would be the best.

However, that’s just my opinion. For now, I do have the Wake series to tackle and Amanda Hocking is writing a new trilogy. I think I’m going to be okay.
