Book Review: WitchBlood By Emma Mills

Name: WitchBlood
Author: Emma Mills

Summary: When Jess steals a glance at a gorgeous guy in a Manchester nightclub, little does she realise how he is going to change her life…or should that be death?

Yet, the vampire clan could never have predicted what they were taking on. With Luke pronounced ‘off-limits’ and the blood of a vampire simmering in Jess’s body, can she forget the love of her life and move on? If not, she will risk exposing the entire Northern clan to untold dangers, in order to live her life the way she wants.

Can Jess be sure that Luke is all he appears to be? Will she succumb to the attraction she desperately tries not to feel for Daniel? And why does she still crave a packet of crisps more than a tasty teenage boy’s blood?

Review: I found out about WitchBlood via Twitter and after speaking with Emma Mills the author, she sent me the first two novels WitchBlood and WitchCraft ahead of the release of WitchLove in February. I don't have a Kindle or an e-reader (at the minute) but since I got my iPhone 5 I have been downloading e-books like no ones business. I finished reading a festive novel whilst at work and thought I would read a glimpse of WitchBlood and see what it was all about. All it took was a few pages and then I was a few chapters in. I never used to read more than one book at a time but just lately I have been, and now I may just have to go back to one at a time.
Having WitchBlood on my iPhone meant I've been reading here and there whenever I got a spare second, and I'd sadly neglected other books for Jessie's story.
WitchBlood is an addictive and compelling new read, that takes supernatural to a whole new level. I've loved reading about Vampires but after a while it feels like so many authors are jumping on the bandwagon following the success of Twilight and The Vampire Diaries.
What Emma Mills has written is inventive, captivating and fresh and what I love most is that it's based in Manchester, YAY! a UK based read. Not many series's are based here so it's nice to see something that us Brits can relate to.

The twists relating to Jess's heritage and Luke had me on the edge of my seat begging for more. I'm a lover of Witches and Vampires and this new series is well written, addictive, compelling and just bloody brillant. If you love a good supernatural read, with twists and intensity then download WitchBlood now and I bet you'll be reaching for WitchCraft once you've read the last sentence of the very last page. I would have done just that but I have a few festive reads to complete first and then I will be itching to get back to Jess and co and see where the saga takes her next. I've managed to get a few of my friends compelled by these books and my mate Debbie managed to overtake my reading altogether that is how great this new series is. SINK YOUR TEETH INTO IT NOW! you won't regret it.

Great review. I couldn't agree with you more. Emma's Witchblood series is to die for. I often find myself reading more than one book at a time also.
