The spell was simple …


But what do you do if your blood is your enemy?

Victoria Warrick has always known she was different. An outcast at school, she is no stranger to adversity. But when she receives an old journal for her seventeenth birthday, nothing prepares her for the dark secrets it holds—much less one that reveals she’s a witch with unimaginable power.

What’s more, when she meets the dazzling but enigmatic Christian Devereux, she has no idea how much her life is about to change. Enemies will hunt her. Friends will turn on her. The terrible curse that makes her blood run black will stop at nothing to control her. And Christian has a sinister secret of his own …

Without knowing whom to trust, can Victoria survive her blood’s deadly desires? Or will she lose everything, including herself?

What an exciting read!. I am obsessed with vampires. I really am. However, sometimes it seems like I am reading the same book over and over. Not with Bloodspell. Its unique and fun and just an overall wonderful read.

Bloodspell is about Victoria (Tori) she has grown up with her Aunt Holly after an accident killed her parents. The story starts with an incident in school that ends up with Victoria in hospital. On her birthday she is given a music box and her world is turned upside down as she learns the truth about her family and what she is. She soon meets the mysterious Christian who hide a dark and dangerous secret.

I loved Victoria as a character. Unlike a lot of females in books she is such a strong character. She is independent and doesnt rely on others to save the day for  her. Tori is not only strong and independent, she is loving and funny. Christian, oh Christian. Christian is very swoon worthy. I think its the french accent. Christian is a vampire but he has kept his humanity. He feeds on mostly animal blood but sometimes human however he doesnt kill. The relationship between Tori and Christian did give me a headache. One minute Christian was being super sweet to Tori the next they were fighting. Although it clear just how much he likes Tori and once you get into the story you under just why he like this. There are so many different characters in the novel. Some who you will like others you will love to hate. Lol.

This was truely a great read. A bit slow to start but once we get into the story and Tori finally accepts what she is things all start to come together. And the book refused to be put down. I tried a few times and just couldnt. I had to read more and more. I was addicted! As much as I did really enjoy this novel. I thought it was  big slow to start with and it felt like it jumped, skipping over parts that could have been explained a bit more.

Amalie has created a world full bloodthrust creatures, danger and centuries old hatred between Vampires and Witches thats makes the relationship between Tori and Christian forbidden and exciting it will keep to on the edge of your seats and begging for the next installement.
