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 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?

Witchblood has been on my kindle archive for way too long. I got it when it was free and I am kicking myself for only just reading. I was in the mood for a new vampire book and this was the perfect fit with a few extras on the supernatural side. 

The story follows Jess, an English girl who is turned into a vampire on a night out after she is attacked by a nasty group of girls. Upon becoming a vampire Jess discovers that she actually a witch and the vampire's of Manchester are intrigued by her. While trying to come to terms with being vampire and a witch she is also confused about her feelings for Daniel (vampire the turned her) and trying to cling to her very soul and the hope of Luke, her boyfriend.

I love vampire, they are my first book love, and Witchblood is an fantastic addition to the vampire genre. It has the right mix of traditional vampire and modern vampire. With the added bonus of some kickass witch craft. Jess is such a breath of fresh air. You really get inside her head and feel everything goes through. She is funny and strong but she isn't afraid to show her weaker side. Her attraction to Daniel is there from the moment she meets him. Its not love just an instant attraction and come on who hasn't been there? I am rooting for these two because they just perfect together. Now Luke isn't it the story much, its mainly Jess missing him and wanting to see him. But when he is finally introduced properly into then story the author throws in on hell of twist and I really can't wait to see how the story with Luke plays out.

Witch blood is one of those rare books that is actually set in the UK, that always gets a massive thumbs up from me. It is always amazing to be able to recognise names and even some of the language has a very UK feel. 

Emma has created what I hope to be an amazing new vampire series with a twist. Witchblood has a little bit of everything to entice the readers. Action, romance, sexy and streamy vampires. I was captivated by the plot, the character and the setting. Although I did feel like parts of story felt rush and could have been developed further but by the end you are left begging for more, and I am so glad I already have book 2. 

So if you are looking a great new supernatural read that will excite you and leave you begging for more then try Witchblood.

Rate: 4/5
