Blog Tour: Re-Runs: Day 3

Today I am doing a re-run of Day 3, which was hosted by the lovely book blogger, Kiki at http://thecaffeinateddivareads.multifacetedmama.com/ 

Kiki read Witchblood and then reviewed it on her site, as well as linking to my blog competition (see above for the competition page!) I will post her review below for any of you who haven't yet read it:

Welcome to my stop on the Witchblood Blog Tour!  This wonderful book is the debut novel of UK author Emma Mills, and fantastic start to what I am sure will be a fabulous writing career.  If you love vamps, witches, twists and turns, and romance, then you will love this book!  So be sure to read the blurb and my “5 mug” review and watch the trailer below to get a “bite” of it!  But don’t stop there!  Keep reading for details about a Witchblood contest being held on Emma’s blog!  And. finally, after that there is a giveaway of a copy of this book!
You can visit her blog here and follow her on Twitter here!

The summary
When Jess steals a glance at a gorgeous guy in a Manchester nightclub, little does she realise how he is going to change her life…or should that be death?
Yet, the vampire clan could never have predicted what they were taking on. With Luke pronounced ‘off-limits’ and the blood of a vampire simmering in Jess’s body, can she forget the love of her life and move on? If not, she will risk exposing the entire Northern clan to untold dangers, in order to live her life the way she wants.

Can Jess be sure that Luke is all he appears to be? Will she succumb to the attraction she desperately tries not to feel for Daniel? And why does she still crave a packet of crisps more than a tasty teenage boy’s blood?

My review,…
Witchblood is the debut novel from Emma Mills, and it is one of my favorites.  I am a sucker for vamp stories, without a doubt, but this book is unique in its story.  A little bit vamp, a little bit witchy, and a little bit human,… there is a little of everything in this story.  Jess is so likeable as a character that it was impossible not to be drawn into the book.  She is your normal teenage girl with all the normal teenage angst that we can relate to.  The struggle between her humanity and her new vampire life is even more intensified.  For the first half of the book, I couldn’t decide if I loved Daniel, or wanted to smack him around for turning her.  But he was impossible not to love, too!

This story was so much more than a YA vamp tale, though.  The vamp/witch aspect was almost an aside to the true thrust of the story.  Jess and her struggles, twists and turns, secrets,… all of it made me hard pressed to put it down!  The author made these characters come to life, made you feel right along with them. I am a softie for a book that draws me in, and when I started getting teary during key points, you know she had me with her storytelling!  I can’t wait for more from this author!!
