This book has been staring at me on my kindle for quite some time. I’ve been so anxious to read it, but I wanted to wait until the spooky season to get into it. Here we are just a day before it’s publishing birthday to share the tale!
Thank you Tor Teen for my gifted ebook in exchange for my honest review.
Synopsis: The Blood Moon rises. The Blood Veil falls. The Tournament begins. Every generation, at the coming of the Blood Moon, seven families in the remote city of Ilvernath each name a champion to compete in a tournament to the death. The prize? Exclusive control over a secret wellspring of high magick, the most powerful resource in the world–one thought long depleted. This year, thanks to a salacious tell-all book, the seven champions are thrust into worldwide spotlight, granting each of them new information, new means to win, and most importantly: a choice – accept their fate or rewrite their story. But this is a story that must be penned in blood.
You know that feeling when you pick up a book that seems familiar and you start to get a little nervous about it? Is this something I’ve read before? Will this live up to the hype? These feelings were strong with this read, and it really came out strong on the other side! I really enjoyed this one! I loved how this book mashed magic, fantasy, mystery, and adventure all into one. It really is Hunger Games meets the world of magic. It’s intense and jaw dropping – it’s wildly entertaining! The worst part about this read? It leaves you hanging on a vine. It sets-up for the next book in this new series, but it left me really wanting more. I wanted just a tad more of a pretty bow-type ending, but I guess I just need to wait to see what’s coming next!
