#Review of Bloodcraft (The Cruentus Curse #2) by @AmalieHoward

*2016 Silver IPPY Winner in YA Fiction!

All magic has its price, and no one knows that better than Victoria Warrick. Gifted with a centuries-old blood curse, Tori has finally learned to master her blood’s demands and has emerged triumphant with Christian Devereux, a vampire overlord, at her side.

But the worst is yet to come …

In the infamous City of Lights, home to both the Witch Clans and the Vampire Council, Tori enrolls at the exclusive Belles Fontaines school in Paris, where she is faced with a devastating choice: choose Christian and be an outcast, or choose the coven and secure her place with the witches.

When the fate of the supernatural world is targeted by a sinister new threat, Christian and Victoria must unite their two warring species to defeat it. Their bond will be tested, twisted, and sorely weakened, and Tori will find herself in uncharted territory—a dangerous place to be when her blood’s magic has its own dark agenda.

But to save them all, she may have no choice but to invoke its deadly power.

*NOTE: Bloodcraft is Upper YA / New Adult (for mature content–violence, sensuality & language)

AMALIE HOWARD grew up on a small Caribbean island where she spent most of her childhood with her nose buried in a book or running around barefoot, shimmying up mango trees and dreaming of adventure. Twenty-two countries, surfing with sharks, and several tattoos later, she has traded in bungee jumping in China for writing the adventures she imagines instead. She isn’t entirely convinced which takes more guts. She is the award-winning IndieNext author of Alpha Goddess, The Aquarathi series (Waterfell and Oceanborn), The Riven Chronicles series (The Almost Girl and The Fallen Prince), and the Cruentus Curse series (Bloodspell and Bloodcraft). Her novels have been critically acclaimed by Kirkus, PW, VOYA, and Booklist, and her debut novel, Bloodspell, was a #1 Amazon bestseller and a Seventeen Magazine Summer Read. She currently resides in Colorado with her husband and three children. Visit her at

So I'm writing this part and I'm not done with the book.  But this one is just taking me for a loop.  For the most part I DIE HARD LOVE IT!!! Esp. in the start when Tori is using magic to kill of all things spiders.  Cant help but think how useful that would be.  But then there are parts that just make me want to slap the ever living crap out of her because she is being a whinny teenager who needs to get a grip.  How can't she see that Christian would give anything for her. I know he has things he has to do.  But I can't help think that if she said hey lets blow this joint and stay out of all of it he would follow her to the ends of the earth.  

That is pretty much where I am right now in this book I'm not even half way through currently on page 151. I just had to get this down before my emotions and thoughts took a dive.  Ok back to reading! 

Well this book ripped my heart out to just stuff it back in there. It will take you on some major twists and turns and people you thought you could trust will turn out to stab you in the back. And some that you thought you couldn't trust will save your life. This was such a great story!!  I would really love a small novella or something set in the future. As I just don't want to let these characters go.
