Young adult paranormal
He won’t lose to a wolf again.
Brock lost his brother to werewolves. Now he’s in danger of losing himself. Bitten by a werewolf at sixteen, he fights the transformation, taking the excruciating pain as a punishment for his mistakes. With the help of a risky drug called Lycanthrox, he’s managed to stay human for two full moons. But he knows he can’t last much longer.
Hungry for revenge, Brock vows to kill the wolf who bit him. But Brock’s ex, Cyn, still cares about him enough to stop him from a suicide mission. As the heat between Brock and Cyn rekindles, he feels like a beast next to her beauty. He can’t stay with her; he can’t ignore the werewolves howling outside his window. When he hunts down the pack, Cyn follows him; the werewolves take them both hostage, then start running, the police hot on their tails. Brock isn’t sure he can get out of this alive before the wolf within kills him–or someone else does.
Book #2 in the Other series
The moon rises like a rotten silver fruit, oozing juice onto the land. A shiver scuttles down my arms. A wind blows my way, filling my nose with the scent of arriving rain, lichen, leaves… and the faint, wild, musky smell of wolf. I clench my toes inside my shoes, tense but unsure where to go or what to do.
A hoarse whisper, close to my ear. “You know you don’t belong here.”
My head snaps to the right, and I’m staring into the dark eyes of him, Randall, the werewolf. A fist clenches my guts. Words choke my throat. You want to fight? You here to kill me?
“With Bloodborn, Karen Kincy opens a frightening new chapter in the werewolf legacy. Brilliant, dark, and filled with haunting images. Highly recommended.” — Jonathan Maberry, New York Times bestselling author of Rot & Ruin and King of Plagues
“A bridge between paranormals and boys’ realism about thugs and delinquents, reminiscent of Neal Shusterman’s Dark Fusion: Red Rider’s Hood (2005)”—Kirkus Reviews
“Teens will enjoy this alternate-reality story of a young man trying to come to terms with what he is.”—VOYA

Bloodborn is a wonderful addition to the Others series and to the varied and intricate tapestry of the YA world.” – Bibliophilic Book Blog
“The plot line of this book is just filled with pure awesomeness. I love turning the next page cause I knew I would not be disappointed. Ms. Kincy did a great job in keeping the reader ensnared in her writing and taking them on a great reading adventure.” – Books with Bite
