As many of you know, I’m a voracious reader. With the eighty authors that I currently follow, I don’t have too much time in my reading schedule for branching out … but sometimes I can’t resist picking up a new book.
Such was the case with Witchblood. When Emma and I connected on Twitter some months ago, the book had yet to be released, but I found the book’s premise so interesting that I knew I had to read it.
I’m sure glad I did. You can read my review further down in this post, but let me share some info about the book and its author first:
When Jess steals a glance at a gorgeous guy in a Manchester nightclub, little does she realise how he is going to change her life…or should that be death? Yet, the vampire clan could never have predicted what they were taking on.
With Luke pronounced ‘off-limits’ and the blood of a vampire simmering in Jess’s body, can she forget the love of her life and move on? If not, she will risk exposing the entire Northern vampire clan to untold dangers, in order to live her life the way she wants.
Can Jess be sure that Luke is all he appears to be? Will she succumb to the attraction she desperately tries not to feel for Daniel? And why does she still crave a packet of crisps more than a tasty teenage boy’s blood?
Watch the Trailer:
“I’m happily married with two lovely kiddies that keep me on my toes. I have always loved reading, and always wanted to write, it just never happened! Then once my youngest started school I was able to take some time and give it a go. Witchblood is my debut novel. After acquiring an obsessive love of supernatural teen novels, I decided to write my own supernatural story, based in Manchester, in the UK, near where I live and grew up. It's currently dark, windy, cold and very, very wet... and easy to get inspiration!”
My Five-Star Review of Witchblood:
“In Witchblood, Emma Mills introduces a world where vampires, witches, and angels walk among us. As we follow Jess's journey through the realization that she has not only been transformed into a vampire, but that she is also something more, we can't help but be swept up in the world that Mills creates. The characters feel real, the world feels authentic, and the story literally throbs with an underlying intensity that builds with each page. In short, Witchblood is an imaginative, satisfying read that still manages to leave the reader hungry for more.”
At only $0.99, Witchblood is a steal! Pick it up today and read for yourself.
