Blood ties



Review 4/5 stars!!

Spell Bound

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.

Blood Ties was a great read. I really enjoyed the different take on witches in this book (some of it will surprise you) and the descriptive way Gina writes.

Grace is half witch half mortal and may just be one of the strongest of her kind, but she doesn't know anything supernatural actually exists until she dreams of a girl being killed and sees her best friend Julie turn into a wolf. Grace's powers are finally awakening which means Grace is in danger.

Catherine is a vicious power hungry witch that is determined to kill Grace and consume her power. To help keep Grace safe from Catherine and train her to use and understand her powers Evelyn gets help from fellow witches James, Addison and Adrian.

James and Grace have an instant attraction to each other, but there is also an attraction between Grace and James's brother Adrian. Grace has to figure out which one is love and which one is just attraction, the decision ends up causing more problems for Grace and both brothers.

I highly recommend this book, especially if you like a good book about witches. Blood Ties will keep your attention with all of the great details, characters and action. Gina Whitney is great author and I look forward to reading more books from her.
