Blood Magic (Abnormals Underground) (Volume 1) Paperback – May 11, 2017
In a world where paranormal species are outcasts, Alyssa is bitten by a vampire and transforms. Now the authorities have her father, an underground organization wants her to join, and an apprentice mage wants to be her fighting partner. Alyssa is a teenage vampire who has attempted to stay out of the spotlight since a young age. She makes great decisions, which you would expect after a lifetime hiding a dark secret. This character knows how to protect herself and has a strong moral compass. Xavier, an apprentice mage, has a story to rival Alyssa's. The layers of his sad past are entrenched in the plot, and he has a strong presence throughout. Set in a present-day Earth where demons are corrupting the world and all paranormal species are hunted. The world building is simple and visual, and the reader gets a clear insight into the different types of paranormals and their powers. Easy to read and visual style perfect for a young adult reader. Highly enjoyable read for 13 years and over."--Kelly St. Clare, Staff Reviewer at YA Books Central

Alyssa would never again be a normal.
Join Alyssa through terrifying situations as she and her friends try to stop an evil that is taking over the city.
Would recommend this for young adults and not so young adults. Thanks Holly.
She tries to keep it a secret, but it's suspicious because she can't go out in sunlight (she gets sick, then has seizures) and she has to drink blood. She also files her teeth down.
One day she is approached by a guy who claims to be a War Mage. He's involved with a group called Abnormals Underground (that's another thing. All paranormals are called Abnormals while mundane humans are called Normals) and they were looking for her specifically because she's a good fighter.
And then it gets very interesting when Xavier (the War Mage) has them bound together without Alyssa's knowledge for a specific reason. The worldbuilding is really interesting, as to why they needed to be bound and what happens as a result of it. (I think there may be a romance coming, but i could be wrong). There are fighters, and other Abnormals, and family politics, and evil plots that involve Alyssa.
I really enjoyed this book and am very intrigued with the world that Hook created. Looking forward to book 2.
