Upcoming Release – May 24, 2011
Blood Magic is very different from most books within the fantasy/magic genre. It’s main focus is blood.
Silla’s parents are dead by what most think of as a murder/suicide. But Silla doesn’t believe this and delves into her father’s spell book to see if she can find the answers. Soon Silla, her brother Reese, and friend Nick are caught up in the world of Blood Magic as they try to unravel the happenings behind her parents’ deaths. Not my favorite book, but much more real and believable then some of the other witch/fantasy books out there.

We don’t usually post two-star reviews, but in this case we have two copies of this book to give away from the publisher. So, if you don’t mind adding a mediocre book to your collection, leave a comment here before 5/23/11 @ 4 PM. Thanks!
Students will pick this book up because of the cover. To bad that it is not rated very high.
This sounds like an interesting twist on a theme that permeates YA fantasy fiction. “BLOOD”
Looks like we have two request for two copies, so they are on their way. Thanks for looking.
I think my girls would love this book. They love the spooky books too.
