I enjoyed the first three books of the series but this one I wish I hadn't wasted my time with. Like other reviewers, I expected something different from the fourth book of a series, not more of the same. I enjoyed the first third of the book because it finally developed the character of Peter and allowed the reader to know there's more to him than gorgeous good looks. But just as quickly as the friendship/relationship between Peter and Alice grew, the book quickly retreated back to familiar territory done to death in the previous three books. Alice feels guilty, Jack is angry and jealous, and Peter is tormented. Am I the only person sick of this plot angle in the series? As a reader, I have no clue if Alice and Peter would be a better match than Jack and Alice because they never spend more than a few minutes together before being interrupted by someone else. But I do find Alice and Peter's interactions more interesting to read about than Alice and Jack because I don't like the direction Jack's character has gone. What was once a sweet, endearing, playful young man in the first book turns into a jealous, controlling, dislikable character at the mere mention of Peter's name or presence. At least this book tries to improve upon the relationship between Peter and Jack. I did enjoy how Alice began to take charge of her own life and displayed some true independence and how Milo's character has developed as well. I may try to read the fifth book (if there is another one) but if it's going to be more of "Alice loves Jack because it's her choice not fate" than I may pass unless there is some serious character development in store for Jack. As of now, he just comes off as selfish, immature, and controlling. If you are a fan of the Alice/Peter pairing, you will not like this book and should probably save your money. If you love Alice/Jack, then you will probably love it!

I have read every book in this series and have been checking almost daily for the Kindle version. I will not buy the book and have it mailed to me when I see it as all others were available on Kindle so this should be as well.. Come on Amanda... KINDLE KINDLE KINDLE... I am sure I am not the only one in this position.. Thats why I rate it as such.. You are not allowing your readers all access to the book. Now when it comes out on Kindle I will revise and give a true rating.

HOPE TO SEE ON KINDLE SOON!!!

I love the other 3 My Blood Approves books and so I couldnt wait to read this one, but was very shocked because it was not what I had expected for a fourth book to the series. It did answer some questions that needed to be answer but the one thing that I would have love to have read about was Peter. Yes, he does show up more in this book and is more down to earth with Alice but I would have love to seen Peter and Alice spend more time together without Jack always in the mix. I thought that the book reminded me too much of Twilight, with the love triangle but Vampire Academy, with Alice being kind of kick butt type chick and plus the whole half-breed thing too. After reading this book, I really dont see any hope of reading a fifth book because there would be no point because Alice is with Jack end of story.

Format: Paperback
When this book begins, Alice, Milo, and Bobby are in Australia visiting Peter, Mae, and Daisy (the child vampire) when Alice receives the news that Jane has been killed. She immediately returns home, where, coincidentally, Ezra has been moping around without Mae.

As Alice seeks answers about Jane's death, she realizes it is the work of a serial killer and decides to track him (or her) down and kill him (or her). This creates a lot of interest and suspense in the book, and is one of the 2 major story lines. Alice is trying to deal with the idea of immortality. If you live forever, what's your purpose? What can you do with all that time to make a difference in the world? Her "hunt" creates a problem with her relationship with Jack, who is afraid she'll get hurt and acts like his typical overprotective self, which causes her to keep secrets from him.

The other main story line is about Daisy. She's unpredictable and out of control, and Mae is in denial about it. However, through her character, we see a different side of Peter. He's so gentle and caring and we just see a much more likable picture of him in Wisdom. When Daisy causes problems in Australia, the 3 return to Ezra's house temporarily until they can find a hideout. Ezra and Mae finally talk and there is peace again. The solution to Daisy's problem offers a satisfying conclusion to her story.

In the end, what made the book so memorable for me was the amount of action and suspense. Alice is becoming stronger and more mature, and she's really a well-developed character at this point. I wish I could say the same for Jack. He's still immature, jealous, and possessive. I do not like Jack and Alice together. She doesn't need him; he's the needy one. Since the beginning, I've wished Alice and Peter were together. I'm holding out for the final book, hoping that Peter will get his happy ending.
