Series: Bloodspell #2
Genre: Upper YA/NA (mature content), Fantasy
Publication: December 15th, 2015
All magic has its price, and no one knows that better than Victoria Warrick. Gifted with a centuries-old blood curse, Tori has finally learned to master her blood’s demands and has emerged triumphant with Christian Devereux, a vampire overlord, at her side.
But the worst is yet to come …
In the infamous City of Lights, home to both the Witch Clans and the Vampire Council, Tori enrolls at the exclusive Belles Fontaines school in Paris, where she is faced with a devastating choice: choose Christian and be an outcast, or choose the coven and secure her place with the witches.
When the fate of the supernatural world is targeted by a sinister new threat, Christian and Victoria must unite their two warring species to defeat it. Their bond will be tested, twisted, and sorely weakened, and Tori will find herself in uncharted territory—a dangerous place to be when her blood’s magic has its own dark agenda.
But to save them all, she may have no choice but to invoke its deadly power.
This series is freaking amazing. I loved it. I could not put this book down. You have to read Bloodspell first so you know what is going on. You will fall in love with the characters. I was a little annoyed with Tori at first. I mean if you have a book that will tell you about your ancestors and help explain what you are...READ IT! Okay, maybe I would be hesitant if it was my life and it is scary but still. I love Tori. She is not afraid to be her own person and even when she finds out that she can't or shouldn't be with Christian she still chooses him (in the beginning at least). I won't tell you if she chooses him in this book again. Anyways, Tori wants to meet the other witches and work on getting control of her powers. I love that you get to see more witches and their world more than you do in the first book. You also get to learn more about Christian in this book. I love him. I was not too sure about him in the first book. I liked him but in this book I loved him.
There are so many things that you learn about this world in these books and I love the endings. I can't wait to read more from Amalie Howard. She is going to the top of my author list for fantasy. I like that you get twists and turns and there is romance but mystery too.
I am giving this book 4.7 out of 5 stars. Go get it and get started!!!

About the Author
AMALIE HOWARD grew up on a small Caribbean island (Trinidad & Tobago) where she spent most of her childhood with her nose buried in a book or running around barefoot, shimmying up mango trees and dreaming of adventure. 25 countries, surfing with sharks and several tattoos later, she has traded in bungee jumping in China for writing the adventures she imagines instead. She isn’t entirely convinced which takes more guts.
An aspiring writer from a young age, Amalie’s poem “The Candle,” written at age twelve, was published in a University of Warwick journal. At fifteen, she was a recipient of a Royal Commonwealth Society Essay Award (a global youth writing competition). A Colby College graduate, she completed simultaneous Honors Theses in both French and International Studies, and graduated Summa Cum Laude/Phi Beta Kappa. At Colby, she was cited for research and criticism in Raffael Scheck’s article, “German Conservatism and Female Political Activism in the Early Weimar Republic,” and his subsequent book, Mothers of the Nation. She also received a distinction in English Literature from the University of Cambridge (A-levels) as well as a certificate in French Literature from the Ecole Normale Supérieure in Paris, France. Traveling the globe, she has worked as a research assistant, marketing representative, teen speaker and global sales executive.
