Blood and Magic (Blood and Magic 1)


After awakening from a three-year coma, Gray discovers she has been betrayed by her lover who has since joined a dangerous organization that takes humans and witches and turns them into hybrids against their will. Becoming a Dhampir was not Gray’s choice, and she can’t allow the Consilium to do this to anyone else. With a renewed lust for vengeance, a magical pirate ship, an immortal monk, and a flower plucked from the Underworld, she sets out to destroy her enemies.

Thrilling suspense and strong characters ensnare the reader right from the start in this exciting urban fantasy. “Blood and Magic” provides readers with an exhilarating sense of adventure as Gray and her allies travel around the world in order to stop her enemies. The story begins with an intriguing event and continues to build anticipation throughout the action. Some readers may feel as if they have missed something, since this is the first book in the series, and there isn’t a whole lot of build up or back story. Readers learn about Gray’s enemies and their motivations throughout the book, which has a bit of a stop-and-go feel to it despite the fast pace, since the characters hop all over the place. However, readers will become completely caught up in all the pulse-pounding excitement of this intriguing world. It’s full of fascinating elements, and the interactions between the characters are full of depth, which makes it easy for readers to connect.
