#BookReview: Of the Blood (Heir of Blood and Fire #1) by @CameoRenae






Synopsis: One malicious prince. Two rival kingdoms. And an innocent girl caught in the crossfire.

Raised in a war-ravaged continent, temptation comes to Calla Caldwell in the form of a charming and mysterious stranger. Giving in to his intimate seduction, her world is forever changed by a single bite.

Calla quickly learns the handsome stranger is vampire prince, Trystan Vladu. His bite was an attempt to claim and save her from a plot of vengeance generations in the making. However, the claws of that ancient vendetta are scraping ever closer.
Thrust into a new nightmare by the Prince of the corrupt kingdom of Morbeth, Calla is captured, tortured, and starved in the dank confines of his dungeon. While in captivity, she takes part in a séance with a witch of light where she contacts a departed relative—a Princess of Incendia—who bequeaths a gift to Calla that will tip the scales of good and evil . . . if she can learn to harness it.

With a dark tapestry of secrets, lies, and murder unraveling around her, Calla must learn to embrace the power roiling through her veins, or be snuffed out by the strangling fist of a malevolent darkness.

Rating: ★★★★
My Review: This book was very fast paced and fairly lyrical in its telling.  It had a great premise and flow/pacing and was slow in very few places.  I enjoyed this vampire tale very much and I can not wait until the next one.  The characters were fabulous and the twists and turns worked well for the story.  The romance was spot on and yep I need book two like yesterday!!
