Bloodspell by Amalie Howard
Published Date: June 2011
Publisher: Langdon Street Press
The Story: The spell was simple... "Cruentus Protectum" ("Defend the Blood")
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?
My Review: OMG! Wow, I loved this book. Victoria (Tori) learns that she is a witch, but with a whole lot of power. Then she meets Christian, and then things get really intresting. Howard has presented a world with witches and vampires that is original, and entertaining. I really enjoyed reading this book, and it will be one of those that I re-read over and over again!!
