Bloodspell by Amalie Howard
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?
This sounds like a darkly fascinating read. I've been looking for more witch stories lately, so this is an answer to my bookish prayers! I can't wait to see why (and how) Victoria's blood is rebelling against her and running black -- blood magic is always a bad sign. Mysterious diaries, enigmatic heroes with French last names, and obviously dark magic? I'm definitely intrigued!
What upcoming release are you most excited for this week?
