Guys, I have to be honest with you all: I almost DNF-ed this one.
But I didn't and in the end I'm happy I stuck with it!
I really like the idea of blood magic and having to make sacrifices for your abilities. It's kinda gory and messy and I like that because it's different from the magic systems I usually read about.
The problem I had was with the characters. Silla kinda annoyed me. And so did Nick. And them together annoyed me A LOT. I really don't want to say insta-love, but yeah, I might as well say it. I mean, I got how they had a connection due to the magic and everything, but their relationship went from not knowing each other to lurrv pretty fast.
For me, there was just too much that we didn't know for most of the book and I found myself starting to enjoy it when more was revealed and a BIG TWIST appearing that had me reeling and want to do a slow clap because I did not see that coming! I still think Silla was REALLY unstable and she continued to annoy me, but less than at first.
I'm still kinda on the fence about Blood Magic, but I'm interested enough in what happens next that I'll continue on with the sequel soon, we'll see how it goes.
My rating: 2,5 stars
