Blood Spell by Lily Luchesi

Bloodworth and Moonspell are the two remaining old magical families. Rivals for years and Tobias and Simon were keeping the tradition alive. But when a Nash Thornhill a third mage who got his powers by deceit and wanted to kill them both. They must work together to stay alive.
This was a quick read and from the first page you are drawn into a magical story about love and betrayal. With only a few characters the story concentrates on Tobias and Simon. They were complete opposites and whilst Tobias was bullied by Simon, he always had an attraction for him. Although Simon was confident when he was with his friends, he was submissive and timid when he was with Tobias. Tobias was in his element when he was making his potions or playing in the dungeons.
When the prophecy was revealed, you had a sense of failure for their relationship but as the story continues there is hope. When Thornhill sees his chance to defeat the mages, the story is built up to a thrilling final battle.
I have not read many M/M books, but I knew with this author that I would be in for a good read. This book will not be for everyone and is definitely an 18+ read. However, if you want a quick fantasy love story than this is the book for you. I read this book in an hour and my only complaint was that I wish it was longer. As for the other characters, I hope that the author develops a story about Amy, the half fae.

Empress Angelica Mancini, is enjoying her reign over the Vampire world. Travelling abroad with Danny, all thoughts of the Paranormal Investigates Division was at the back of her mind. But when a Skin Changer is threatening her agents then she knew that she was back in action.
Angelica was as bad ass as usual, the time away from the PID, had not soften her at all. As soon as she knew that her agents were in trouble she was quick enough to jump into action. Clad in her trade mark leather clad outfit, she was not afraid to get her hands dirty. Her relationship with Danny is as strong as ever and they soon slipped into their old ways when they began to investigate the Skin Changer. Even when their relationship was cracking you knew they were still dedicated to the case. Needing extra help enabled the author to introduce a new character and allowed us to learn more about Danny.
Whilst Angelica and Danny were full vampire, I enjoyed that the author didn’t lose their human emotions. This helped show how dangerous the mission was and as the Skin Changer was a savage creature, its kills were vicious. Reading this story , you can tell that the author loved Harry Potter as there were lots of one lines relating to this franchise, one in particular was Hermes was described as pulling a Severus Snape on Angelica.
Although this is the 6th in the series, this can be read as a standalone story and whilst I have read others in this series I have not read them all. I felt that I did not miss out as past scenes relevant to the story were explained in detail. The fight scenes were intense and at time you think that all is lost. Every character is described in detail and even the minor characters play a part in telling this story. I am pleased that there will be more in the series as it did end on a cliffhanger. Whilst reading this story I could imagine it as a TV series and this series would appeal to Fantasy and Buffy lovers.
Roll on number 7 and I am off to catch up on this series

Bree Carson is a vampire. From the moment she was turned she vowed to wipe out evil. She now spent her time hunting criminals, human or supernatural she was not fussed. Humans and supernaturals live together in a sort of harmony, but the new mayor was happy and vowed to wipe out every non-human. However when the Mayor needed help, she went against her beliefs and asked Bree to help in a life or death situation.
This is a standalone story which I hope leads to a series. It has a feel of her Paranormal Detective series and Bree has the same qualities as Angelica Cross. She is confident in her abilities and whilst she spends the majority of the time killing targets who deserve it, there is a softer side to her. As the story progresses we get to find out her links with the Mayor, as how Bree came to lose her family.
As it is a novella it is a quick read, and I was amazed how much the author put in the story. There is action and tension throughout. If you have never read anything from this author than Bad Reputation is a good book to start with.

Harley Torrance was orphaned when she was a young girl. Adopted from the age of 3, she had always been different from other children. She did not know how different until an eccentric visitor came calling and took her to a hidden village in Inverness. There she finds out who she is in the magical community and for the first time has people who love her.
I loved Harley straight from the prologue. Although she was bullied at school, just for being different, she never changed who she was and became a stronger person. Moving to Inverness she embraces her magical heritage and excelled at school. Being a genius at potions, she was still a target for bullies but she rose above them. The relationship with her hosts children helped her in the difficult times and their friendship was really strong, very similar to the friendship in books like the Famous Five.
Running through the story was battle between good and evil and the search for Harley’s dad. Whilst I was hoping for a certain character to be her dad, when it was revealed was let out a cheer.
The story draws you in, the characters come to life as you read this story making you want to carry on reading. Each character has an important role to play in the story and you will love or hate certain characters. The style of writing takes you on a journey spanning 4 years of Harley’s life making this a quick read as there was always something going on. The final scenes were full on so reading the epilogue brought tears to my eyes as it was so beautifully written.
If you are looking for something to fill the gap left by Harry Potter or other magical books then look no further. This a great YA read that will suit the older reader as well. I hope it will not be long for further books in this series.
