In the world of Bitotem, every citizen has special blood that they discover sometime in their life. Tiger’s Blood by Elizabeth Morris is the first volume in a new series that explores the world of Bloods—a breed of people who are half-animal and half-human shapeshifters. Here, the Lion Bloods ruled by a king are the dominant species. Kira is a Tiger Blood who embarks on a quest of revenge upon discovering the king’s ruthless transgressions against her kind. Friendship and alliances will be forged as she is aided by three other Bloods: Noah the Wolf Blood, Chase the Eagle Blood, and Ethan, the defiant son of the Lion Blood king. They put their lives in harm’s way as threats from other Bloods leave Kira’s vengeful intentions at a critical stage.
Tiger’s Blood is a compelling world of shape-shifters that play out a history of violence, trauma, and resistance. This world sees the domination of the Lion Bloods over the other shape-shifting bloodlines. The resistance that Kira upholds creates subplots that explore her relationship with other Bloods and settles the major structure of the story as she uncovers more truth while getting closer to revenge. Kira, as a figure of opposition, learns to grow her strength not only through the power of her tiger line but by the friendship and truths she unravels along the way. This is what makes her relatable. She is a flawed character who does not always make the right decisions, yet she learns from her mistakes. This is an invaluable lesson for stubborn teenagers out there. Some explicit language, violence, and sexual tensions can be found within the story, but not intense enough to shatter your sensitivity. This book is so highly entertaining that it will make you forget that you are under home quarantine.
