Review: Beasthood by A.Z. Green

Publication Date: May 22, 2013
Series: The Hidden Blood Series
Rating: 5 stars

Official Blurb:

The bloody, raw meat was tantalizing her; calling to her. She hated it and yearned for it all at once. 
Stop, she ordered. What are you doing?! 
So hungryyyyy, snarled a primal voice deep within her. 
Don’t you dare! she screamed back. 
But the primal hunger ignored her pleas and took over her body, forcing her rational voice deep within the crevices of her mind. 

What would you do if you discovered you weren't human? That you turned into a bloodthirstmonster against your will? 

What if your instincts, emotions and desires were torn between your own and the dark, dangerous animal lurking inside of you? 

If it could make you yearn for someone you shouldn't, make you say and act in ways you wouldn't and overwhelm your whole existence? 
If everything you'd ever known about your life was a lie? 

In a world where a deeply hidden community is swathed in mystery, deadly secrets, betrayal and murder, Jaz Barker struggles to fight against the dangerous Beast within her and the emotions and desires it thrusts her way. 

When tensions ride high and people she cares about are put in danger, she will have to decide how much of her newly awakened animal-side she's willing to let in. 

And if it is worth the risk...

When I read the blurb for this book, I knew that it was a story that I would enjoy. Jasmine or Jaz is the main character, she is 21 and seems to know she is different from others. She is very strong, independent, she likes to do things her own way and on her own time. She experienced a very traumatic event that even the doctors cannot explain, making her family assume she is a convincing liar. Jasmine will soon learn what it is that makes her so different from her family and friends, and has a hard time coping. After learning she has an estranged aunt, she is whisked away with her to a “resort”, but it’s anything but a vacation for Jaz.
She will eventually find a whole other side/identity which she struggles with on a daily basis, meeting danger, and maybe even love.

This characters really had me sucked into their world! There is quite a bit that happens to Jaz, and we get to meet a lot of characters who play a big role in Jaz’s life and wellbeing. One being the pack leader who she is drawn to and has no clue why. The twists and turns kept me turning pages to find out what happens next, does this new community accept her, or will they turn their back once they find out the truth about Jaz and what she is???  I’m looking forward to reading the next book, there is some information that I just have to know! If you are looking for a book that is packed with action, has wolves, twists and turns and maybe a little love story, this is for you!
