#BookReview: Blood Crescent (Divine #1) by Stevie McCoy

Synopsis: A missing mother. A magical birthright. Can she uncover the secrets of her family legacy before the bloodline runs dry?  

My name is Chrystal Dylan, and I was born with the worst super power ever, a lightning rod for supernatural energy that attracts vampires like cat nip to feed from. Nothing like being an all you can eat buffet, until one decided to “save” me from that fate by triggering my transition into the very thing killing me.

Considering that was the least of my problems, I have a council looking to eliminate all anomalies threatening to expose them to the human world, it just so happens that I’m one of them, and so is my best friend Victor. I won’t go down without some answers, including what they did with my mom.

Blood Crescent is the first novel in the exhilarating Divine Series of YA paranormal fantasies. If you like hidden magical realms, fresh new takes on vampire lore, and heartfelt journeys of self-discovery, then you’ll love Stevie McCoy’s spellbinding coming-of-age tale.


Rating: 3 Stars
My Review:  This one I wanted to die hard love, but unfortunately that wasn't the case.  For me this one felt off in its writing and it was kind of all over the place.  I loved the characters and the plot and the world that this author has created was just so beautiful.  I know I will continue with book two just to check it out.  


"The writing is descriptive and enjoyable... echoes of the Twilight series and Harry Potter, (though) the characters and scenario are wholly original...the author provides enough mystery and suspense to keep readers turning pages." -- The BookLife Prize

"Readers of seminal classics like Twilight, The Hunger Games and Divergent are very likely to eat up Blood Crescent and devour every morsel with relish, and I found it to be an enjoyable read." -- Readers' Favorite

"Literally the whole time I was reading this I felt like I was watching a movie... I don't care if it is straight-to-video, they need to make it!" -- IndieBookReviewers
"They live in a supernatural world and Crystal is right in the middle. Not only does she have to navigate her failing body, but also with the seemingly stranger vampire, Damien, who is pursuing Crystal. Slowly, she also learns her friend, Victor, isn't who she thought he was. Will Crystal be able to accept who she truly is? Most importantly, who can she really trust?" -- Online Book Club

About the Author

Born within the apex of another universe, where magic flows like leaky faucets, and forged from the fires of the Underrealm she dug her way to Earth and reluctantly participates in human society, secretly returning to her home world to relay the stories of her monsters, and the troubled love of her people. When she isn't writing she's crafting clothing in her sewing room, cuddling her significant-other creature, or pretending to adult by managing a portfolio of properties for an accounting business in the rainy city of Seattle, Washington.
