Blood Magic (Blood Series #2)
By: Danielle Rose
Publisher: OfTomes Publishing
Publication Date: August 1st, 2017
Avah Taylor thought she had already faced the worst.
As her coven’s chosen one, destined to receive a power that could kill her, Avah was forced to make the ultimate sacrifice when she gave up her mortal life to become a vampire, the witches’ greatest enemy. But just when she begins to adjust to her new life, even as she falls in love with her sire, the high priestess of her new coven is seized by Rogue vampires.
Guided by Avah’s visions of the past, present, and future, Avah and the other vampires set out to rescue their priestess, but their journey leads Avah to the discovery that the conspiracy behind her power runs deeper than she ever imagined. As her visions grow increasingly terrifying, Avah begins to wonder if she may not have a future at all.
Blood Magic picks up shortly after the ending of Blood Rose and in the aftermath of the battle with the Rogue vampires and the kidnapping of Avah’s high priestess. Avah and her team set out to track down their leader and uncover some closely held secrets and some new friends and enemies.
In this sequel, the relationship between Jasik and Avah is solidified, after some initial upset from the surprise guest at the end of the first book. There is more heat in this sequel than in Blood Rose and can’t complain as Jasik and Avah mesh so much better in this book than in its predecessor. Avah’s position within the coven is also much more stable, she’s beginning to become more accepted within her team of hunters and her relationship with Malik has some of its kinks ironed out.
Danielle’s world is once again a unique take on vampires and witches, blending magic and lore and creating something entirely new. The revelations in this book were surprising and Avah dealt with them with a realistic mix of maturity and anger at the betrayal of her old life. This was a satisfying and entertaining addition to the Blood series and I’m looking forward to Blood Promise.
