#BookReview: Of Wicked Blood (The Quatrefoil Chronicles #1) by @OWildWrites @katiehayoz






Synopsis: No rest for the wicked... or the cursed.

SLATE
I didn’t mean to steal the Bloodstone from the De Morel’s crypt. 
Scratch that, I did mean to steal it. 
Until I realized it was a curse-magnet that only comes off if I, along with a jolly trio, successfully defeat four curses.
If any of us fail, I’m dead.
I’ve never been a glass half-empty sort of person, but my glass looks in dire need of a refill right about now.
The only highlight of this wicked treasure hunt: feisty, entitled Cadence de Morel.

CADENCE
I was raised on tales of magic, in a small town reputed to be the birthplace of French witchcraft.
Did I believe all the stories I heard? Absolutely not. I mean, if magic existed, Maman wouldn’t have died, and Papa wouldn’t be stuck in a wheelchair, right?
Wrong.
The night Slate Ardoin waltzes into my life, wearing a ring he stole from my mother’s grave, I call him a monster.
But then I meet real ones, and Slate, well . . . he becomes something else to me.
Something frustrating to live with but impossible to live without.
Something I will fight for, no matter the cost.


*Warning: profuse cursing (and not just the magical kind)

My Review: This had everything I was looking for in a new series.  Friendship, romance, creepy setting, mystery, and more.  I loved the fantasy setting and slow burn romance.  It really worked for this story and I just really love slow burn romances vs. insta love because it just makes it feel more real.  The magic was wonderful and I was hooked at the first chapter and can not wait for the next book.
