Lily Yu and Rule Turner’s engagement announcement is stirring up ugly passions in the Humans First camp. There’s hate mail. Death threats. Lily’s car is vandalized. But professionally, things are going smoothly...until a lupus in Tennessee goes on a killing spree.

Then Rule's brother, Benedict, catches a lovely intruder--twice. The first time she's sneaking around the home of the leader of Humans First. The second time, she sneaks into Nokolai Clanhome with a mysterious potion.

It may not be possible to deal with the rapidly escalating situation the way Lily always has: through the law. Especially when she’s pulled off the case due to an alleged conflict of interest. Lily’s loyalties will be stretched to the breaking point when she discovers that the deaths in Tennessee were only the opening skirmish in an all-out war.

Reviews

This series keeps getting better by Amy (Posted on 1/4/2017)
I absolutely, unequivocally, love this series. That is all.
Hard to Swallow by Cassiopeia (Posted on 10/23/2016)
I'm going to go ahead and beat the dead horse here: I hate the new voice for Rule. It's not that the actor does a bad job, he just isn't Rule Turner. This wouldn't be too much of a problem, I think, if I were anyone else but I have an audiographic memory which means I remember sounds--such as voices--perfectly and every time Rule speaks, I hear Danny Gavigan saying the exact same words right after which often causes me to miss what other characters are saying. It is very distracting. Had I known the actor changed, I probably wouldn't have bought the GraphicAudio and instead just read the books. Thankfully, Danny Gavingan returns in book 12. Grace have that he's able to stay for any further installments.

Otherwise, I enjoyed the work a great deal. GA gets better and better with every successive title.
Still Great! by Jennifer (Posted on 11/3/2015)
The Lady’s enemy is once again at work in the world. Lily, Rule, and everyone else is hoping they can thwart her plans one more time.

Okay, let me get my minor complaints out of the way before I talk about what I liked. First, the actor playing Rule’s voice changed. I KNOW there are a myriad of good reasons for changing voice actors, and with as good as GraphicAudio is, I’m guessing the situation was something outside their control. But I STILL hate it.

Second, this is the first GraphicAudio book where I felt like I could tell the story was abridged. There were just some things that felt incomplete, like the explanation had been cut. Now, I’m willing to admit this could be psychological, since I just recently realized GA books ARE abridged somewhat. So take that for what it’s worth. Thankfully, I also own the ebook so I can go back and figure out if I really DID miss anything.

Aside from those minor gripes, Blood Challenge is another good installment in the series. We continue to learn more about the Lupi culture, about the characters, and about they world they inhabit. Again, the world feels real because each book is dealing somewhat with the consequences of what happened in past stories.

I absolutely LOVE Arjenie Fox. Her character is fantastically fun. And we get to learn more about Benedict as well. Though the entire story doesn’t focus on them, their story is a great addition and keeps the romance level up for the romance readers.

***I’m going to get a bit spoilery.***

Readers who get upset with the “Mary Jane” syndrome may start to get annoyed with the series, if they haven’t by now. Everything seems to happen to Rule and Lily. Rule has two mantles, now Lilly has one. The Nokolai now have two Chosen and will soon have two (or three) sets of married couples when married Lupi are unheard of. No matter where they go in the country, something big and tragic happens to Rule and Lily.

The Mary Jane syndrome doesn’t bother me very much, personally; I like sticking with the same characters over time, and to keep a story interesting, THINGS have to happen to them. I see the characters as the vehicle through which we explore whatever it is we’re exploring in the series. But I know some people find it frustrating.

Overall, I’m really glad I stuck with this series. I’m enjoying the complexity of the world, the personality of all the characters, and the voice acting of Graphic Audio. Even if they did have to change an actor. ;)

new voices by Jermane (Posted on 2/26/2015)
I was not enthused by the new voice of Rule; but I got used to him, and I loved the Benedict's new mate she was cute.

Love it!
Blood Challenge by Vickie (Posted on 12/2/2014)
I love this series, and overall this is a good book. I may be a little more critical with this particular book since it is my all time favorite in the entire series. It took a little while to get used to new voice for Rule...I would have prefered a different voice for Arjenie. Benedict was dead on.

Love these books
blood challenge by Daria (Posted on 9/25/2014)
Can't wait for the next one!!!!
Excellent Story by Jamee (Posted on 8/26/2014)
OK kids do not let the reviews relating to Rule's voice deter you from purchasing this chapter by GA. I agree it is a different voice but had I not read the posted reviews prior....I doubt I would have given a second thought. It is not a bad voice....just different from the original. No worries...great storyline....superior performance....thanks again GA
Wonderful by Diana (Posted on 8/10/2014)
Excellent production!!
Why the new "Rule" voice?? by Katherine (Posted on 8/5/2014)
All good, but I have listened to this series from the beginning, and well....voice changes are a bit jarring (Rule). But, hey, still really awesome!! I realize that given the amount of time put into producing each book; some voice actors will probably not be available for the entire series run...I think people should just understand that and go with the flow.
Great by Darren (Posted on 7/25/2014)
It is clear that Rule's voice is different. .. however... the new voice speaks in the same way. I really enjoyed this book and way used to the change in voice very quickly. Keep up the good work!
bring back Rules voice by Richard (Posted on 7/20/2014)
Rule Turner voice is different he sound much darker then before I hope they bring back the original voice of Rule but I'll still lisson to this series I just got to know how they are going to defeat the grate bi...
changes by Vicki (Posted on 7/16/2014)
I've been a follower of this series but in the sample it"s obvious that the voice actor for Rule has been changed, which is quite off putting. This is my favorite book in the series but I am not sure if I will be able to accept the change in casting for the rest of the series.
