Blood Life is a fresh, dark concept of vampires and witches amidst the recent young adult stories in the market. Those are great stories, too, but Blood Life brings back the vampire as the KILLER. They kill to live and humans are their prey of choice, but their, dare I say HUMAN emotions are strong and ever present. Meanwhile, the vampires and witches have created a new race and there is a pending war between the regular vampires and those that have combined their blood with the witches'. Relationships are strong, pulling at your heartstrings, sex is hot, and all the while, this tale maintains an engaging story that truly pulls you in. It's hard to put down! Cannot wait for more from this series - there were lots of places that you could tell the author was preparing you for JUST THAT!
