More About the Author
When she head to veterinary school those many years ago she had no idea decades later she would be writing controversial historical thrillers, gut wrenching mysteries and roller coaster-style action/adventure tales!
Born in San Francisco and raised in the beautiful Napa Valley, Carolyn always had an overactive imagination. As a child you could usually find her dragging the neighborhood children out to the haunted barn to make her Nancy Drew-style audio tapes. Oh and did she mention, there was an entire life-sized recreation of the nativity scene in the rafters? Yeah, that wasn't just a little creepy.
Which of course was great practice for writing such blockbusters as Plain Jane: A Patterson-style thriller with a dash of Hannibal and 30 Pieces of Silver: An Extremely Controversial Historical Thriller.
Carolyn is honored to have a seven book contract with Amazon's mystery and thriller imprint, Thomas & Mercer along with being one of the eight books during the inaugural launch of Amazon's new Serial program (9th Circle).
With over 250,000 books sold, Carolyn now lives on a beautiful lake in the Pacific Northwest where the fog rolls in over the water, snuffing out all signs of life around her. Yep, she still loves the creepy!

Salista Calon is an emergency room doctor at the San Francisco General Hospital. Headstrong, dedicated, and practical, Sal believes in science and the logic that it brings. With a promising career ahead of her and engaged to a successful, respected, and handsome clinician, Sal is firmly entrenched in the world of reality. Until one night of horrific tragedy changes her life and her perceptions of the world around her forever.
Tyr Deadblood is a hunter and warrior from another place and another time; he is also a talented wielder of a magic known as Praxis. He is a man who's purpose in life is to put an end to anything that disrupts the balance of existence. He is also a man who's lineage is disdained, and his very existence is an abomination to the very people he is honor bound to protect. He is also haunted by a past of his own making that still has the power to torment him.
Tyr comes to Sal's world to vanquish a terrible enemy, a creature that is killing innocent people. It is a horrendous creature consumed by hatred, searching for the power that it needs to destroy the worlds. Thrown together by danger, Sal and Tyr must work together to destroy a rabid beast that is literally consuming the memories of victims and bleeding them dry.Read more ›
With evoking descriptions of the setting using all of the senses, Carolyn McCray allows the reader to experience all that Sal does, from muscle ache to heart ache. Although HeartsBlood does not take place in Tyr's world, Ms McCray gives us hints of his home through Tyr's actions and dialogue. The pacing throughout the action scenes is excellent and the short chapters help add to the suspense.
While the ending of HeartsBlood was not what I expected, I found it wrapped up the book very well, and yes, Ms. McCray left me crying. I personally love when a book can stir my emotions like that.
If you are a fan of paranormal or would like to experience a new genre, check out HeartsBlood by Carolyn McCray.
The entire book had me gasping, laughing, and crying. Literally. Carolyn McCray's writing is absolutely awesome. She writes in such a way that the feelings that Heartsblood invokes are so intense and so, so real. You just can't help but be sucked into the world that McCray has created.
Both main characters are easy to relate to, even though Tyr seems to be from a completely different world. The descriptions and emotions written into the story make it easy to feel (not just "know") what is going on, and the connection between Tyr and Sal is evident, even though they struggle to communicate through their cultural differences.
I honestly feel as though I can't come up with the right words to do this book justice. Everything I'm writing is true, but doesn't seem good enough to portray what I'm feeling about this book right now. GO. BUY. IT. NOW.

I enjoyed the unique magic system in this book and that's pretty much where it ends. The plot is convoluted and seems to forget where its going on occasions. Read morePublished 17 months ago by Tammy
