Officially back in the arms of her vampire boyfriend Magnus, Sunny finds she still can't forget the gentle mortal Jayden who once saved her life. When darkness threatens to steal his humanity, Sunny must make a choice: stay true to her love, or defy him in a desperate attempt to save Jayden's soul.
Meanwhile, the Blood Coven is gearing up for a showdown with a splinter group of Slayer Inc. It's Vampires vs. Slayers in a showdown that could cost Sunny not only her heart...but also her life.
If the wind calls at night, you must not listen. The wind is lonely, and always looking for company.
And there are no strangers in the town of Near.
These are the truths that Lexi has heard all her life.
But when an actual stranger—a boy who seems to fade like smoke—appears outside her home on the moor at night, she knows that at least one of these sayings is no longer true.
The next night, the children of Near start disappearing from their beds, and the mysterious boy falls under suspicion. Still, he insists on helping Lexi search for them. Something tells her she can trust him.
As the hunt for the children intensifies, so does Lexi’s need to know—about the witch that just might be more than a bedtime story, about the wind that seems to speak through the walls at night, and about the history of this nameless boy.
Blood Ties is a novel in a continuing series that I have not read called the Blood Coven Series. I've had friends who have read the books and they say it is hilarious and that I should really read it. Which I really should.
The Near Witch is totally on my MRL (located in the tab bar underneath the cat) and it sounds insanely suspenseful and scary. I can not wait to read it!
Between sounds really interesting, with the mystery and the thumping noise, but the last couple of sentences proclaiming it to be full of "heartbreaking character study", "touching romance", and "ultimately a hopeful tale of redemption, love, and letting go" sounds completely like stories I've read before.
