The Weaver (Old Blood Book 1) Kindle Edition
Nathan Briggs left home and family to travel the world a year earlier. The son of a wealthy New England industrialist family, Nathan traveled as far away from responsibility in the family business as he could after university.
His relationship with his father fractured, and having cut his travels short to fly home at news of a missing grandfather, he returns to face the prospect of a life tied to Briggs Industries, confused and unsure what to do about his future.
But is everything what it seems? Are his family the people he'd always thought them to be? How well had he really known his grandfather?
Hunted in the night by dark shadows, inheritor of a strange magic, and his family's past unravelling before his eyes, he races to learn magic from a missing grandfather while coming to terms with his own father and his place in the family. Can he save himself and his friends from the darkness? Will he strong enough?
This new world is not the one he grew up knowing. He must come to grips with it before it kills him.

The main character, Nathan, is just starting his adult life, and learning to reconcile individual choice with family obligations. In fact, the primary relationship in Nathan’s life is the one with his father, and Hoadley takes us into Nathan’s head as he navigates relations between father and son. Every action Nathan takes is in reaction to his father, or in response to what he anticipates his father’s reaction will be.
I particularly enjoyed Hoadley’s descriptions of life in Provincetown and Boston. I felt like I was there, walking, eating and shopping with Nathan.
I am eagerly looking forward to Book 2 in this series, to see what happens next with Nathan, Serena and Ben.
Can’t wait for “Old Blood” to continue the journey!

Once I’d started I was absolutely hooked until literally the last page. Written with great pace and great characters; along with unfolding it’s story – you can feel the setting up of deeper storylines for the books that will follow. I’m so happy that I gave this new author a chance – for the hours it took me to read I was transported to a different world. I’m now impatient to read the following books in the series… as the previous reviewer said ‘Hurry up with book 2!’ please!
It's a joy to read and have a wonderful rhythm and pace. I loved it. And am bereft until the next installament in what promises to become a glorious trilogy.
