Blood Ties Kindle Edition
College senior Grace is half witch, half mortal, and one of the most powerful supernatural beings in existence. Problem is she doesn’t know any of this yet.
But she’s about to find out—and fast. Her powers are awakening, and Grace is in danger as her transformation reignites an ages-old war between her clan and an evil rival witch faction that will stop at nothing to see Grace dead so their leader, the vicious, ruthless Catherine, can harness Grace’s incredible powers for her own dark purposes.
It’s up to Grace’s immortal Aunt Evelyn and her best friend Julie—a shape shifter from a long line of Native American mystics—to defend her. She also has James on her side, a witch from the Bolingbroke clan that has vowed since Grace’s birth to keep her safe. From the moment they meet, the two share a fierce supernatural attraction—a white-hot heat that neither can resist. Will their undying love protect her or put her in greater danger? Only time will tell, and time for Grace is running out.

You will find yourself turning the pages to see what happens between the immortals....
There were a few editing problems and it was a bit confusing how Grace came into possession of her special knife when she was fighting Catherine but all in all an intriguing story....Enjoyed the characters!
Grace is a good female lead. She is thrust into a new world she knows nothing about and does pretty good at accepting it. She lacks self confidence but that slowly grows as she learns more about her self. James is very protective of Grace and will do anything to keep her safe. He has a temper and sometimes has to make some hard decisions.
I really enjoyed reading this book as it has a lot of action. It is easy to get pulled into this book. It is also different than the usual witch book as these witches are different. They have special needs that make the story stand out. You also get werewolves in this story so it has a good range of paranormal beings. This is a little darker than the usual paranormal books I've read lately and I liked that. The only thing I wanted more of was Grace and James. They have a great connection and I didn't get enough of if. This is a great book for anyone who enjoys paranormal books and are looking for something different.
Years later Grace is at college, and is just like every other student, with her best friend Julie by her side, friends since meeting in preschool.
But then she starts experiencing strange things from chest pains to hallucinations, and she soon discovers her whole life has been a lie.
Grace finds out, after being taken to her Aunt Evelyn's for her own safety, that she is descended from a long line of witches. She was born from a union between a witch, her mother, and a mortal, her father. As such, Grace is destined to be an extremely powerful witch once her powers awaken. She also discovers that her friend Julie was assigned to be her protector. Julie is also descended from an ancient clan, a Native American clan of shape shifters.
Evelyn calls upon other witches to help prepare Grace for what lies ahead. Among these witches is James, who was present at her birth. Grace and James are instantly attracted to each other, and as time goes on it becomes obvious that there is a reason these two feel that way.
They eventually become tied together by more than just their feelings. This, unfortunately, leads to confrontation between James and his brother Adrian. What happens next seals the fate of both brothers.
Grace finds herself confronted by a witch, an extremely powerful one by the name of Catherine, who was also present at her birth, but for very different reasons than everyone else. Catherine believes that by consuming Grace's powers she can become THE most powerful witch in the world. She has lived her life trying to find Grace for just that purpose, after being foiled in her previous attempt, on the day of Grace's birth.
There are a lot of twists and turns in this story, and Grace discovers a lot about herself and her history. There are more than a few shock scenes involving the battles between those protecting her and those trying to kill her. There are also a few scenes which involve what can only be described as cannibalism. One in particular is quite difficult to read. But I think for the story to work the way it does, these scenes are all needed. Due to these scenes I would suggest this was a book for people over 17.
The author has written the story very well, the characters are all believable in the roles they play in Grace's life, and the story keeps you gripped from start to finish. There is plenty of action throughout, and also a bit of a love interest to keep readers interested. All in all a good read and one I would recommend for sure.
