Hi everyone! I wanted to share with you a trailer I made for C.J. Redwine for The Blood Spell. I loved this book SO much and highly recommend picking up a copy! C.J. is still offering the preorder incentive for a few more days, so make sure to send in those receipts! Details HERE.
I LOVED THIS BOOK!
I haven’t read a great fairy tale retelling in a long time. I love the nods to the Cinderella story but honestly it’s even better than the original!
This is my first book in this series. They are all standalone so no need to have read the previous 3 books. (However, I 100% will now!)
This fairy-tale fantasy is everything you could want in YA fantasy. I’ve read some pretty meh fantasies over the last couple years and it’s so refreshing to be completely engrossed in a story and one you can’t put down! My heart was racing with the thrill of this action-packed story.
Blue is an alchemist and also has some fae blood. She’s brave, full of conviction to do the right thing, and I loved her. Kellan is the soon to be king dealing with many pressures of the throne but dealing with guilt that leads to reckless behavior. Dinah is the villain and gets a POV in this story as well. I’m a huge fan of the villains not being one dimensional.
I’m a fan of the racial diversity throughout the book & the sister of the prince, Nessa, who has a speaking disability & uses sign language. All of it was well done. All the main and side characters were so well thought out. I loved the romance and the smart and easy to understand world-building. It’ll make you cry, swoon and put you on the edge of your seat for most of the book! It truly was a thrill and so entertaining.
Honestly, so great! PICK THIS BOOK UP!
About the Book
Blue de la Cour has her life planned: hide the magic in her blood and continue trying to turn metal into gold so she can help her city’s homeless. But when her father is murdered and a cruel but powerful woman claims custody of Blue and her property, one wrong move could expose her—and doom her once and for all. The only one who can help? The boy she’s loathed since childhood: Prince Kellan.
Kellan Renard, crown prince of Balavata, is walking a thin line between political success and devastating violence. Newly returned from boarding school, he must find a bride among the kingdom’s head families and announce his betrothal—but escalating tension among the families makes the search nearly impossible. He’s surprised to discover that the one person who makes him feel like he can breathe is Blue, the girl who once ruined all his best adventures.
When mysterious forces lead to disappearances throughout Balavata, Blue and Kellan must work together to find the truth. What they discover will lead them to the darkest reaches of the kingdom, and to the most painful moments of their pasts. When romance is forbidden and evil is rising, can Blue save those she loves, even if it costs her everything?
