About the Author: (Goodreads.com)
Zoey Sweete is currently signed with Mystic Press and preparing to relaunch Blood magic The Draven Witch Series for the 3rd time. Book 2 of the series will be relesed at the end of the summer and book 1 is preparing to be released at the end of the week with a new cover and new changes!!!!
Half vampire and half witch, whose powers stem from an age old bloodline, Renee Draven is hell bent on destroying the evil that has terrorized her lineage and take back the power that was stolen long ago. As foretold by prophecy, Renee prepares to battle Damaskeos, the evil one that has stolen the lives of her ancestors for centuries and taken their power for his own. She must learn to use her power to protect herself while being haunted by visions of the past. Racing against time Renee must find Dante Angelo, the one who is to awaken her vampire side and give her the strength to defeat Damaskeos. As she embarks on her dark journey into a world of demons, vampires, werewolves, and those who hunt them, Renee stumbles across William Angelo, the lost soul she was said to bring home and save. Struggling to stay alive, she is torn between her duties and wanting a normal life. Renee must search for the power within herself to save the lives of those she loves and trust the magic that flows through her blood. Blood Magic takes you on a mystical ride into alternate dimensions and the world of the Draven witches with the supernatural creatures that have sworn to protect them and die for them.
I'd Recommend to...
Girls, 17 or older
Renee Draven is a witch with a lot of power. Damaskeos is a vampire that kills Draven witches to gain their power. He is evil. It has been told that Renee will be the one to end his rule. But along the way she runs into some other obstacles she must face and deal with, along with several people who claim to love her. Can she really get through all these problems or will she die like the rest?
This book was okay. It had its ups and its downs. It had some really gross parts, but it was easy to just skip two or three pages and then it would be all better. But then at times it had me wanting to read and read and not stop. I even missed The Vampire Diaries because I wanted to keep reading it (I told myself that the reason I wasn't watching The Vampire Diaries was because I would get confused with the TV and what I was reading, and that it was recorded so I could watch it later). Like the Vampire Diaries, it involved vampires and werewolves and witches and such, but the part that I said I would get confused with the two is the love triangle between brothers and the sort-of "chosen one" in each. But whatever.
But yeah, it had me not wanting to stop reading at times, and it was very suspenseful because Renee was going through so many challenges. She had to kill a few demons, she had to train, she had to fight Demaskeos, and she had guys fighting over her a lot. And the ending leaves you with a "is she gonna make it out alive" thought wave, so I'll probably be reading the next book in the series, too!
