Blood Magic by Tessa Gratton

This book releases on May 24, 2011.

Goodreads Summary:

For Nick Pardee and Silla Kennicot, the cemetery is the center of everything.

Nick is a city boy angry at being forced to move back to the nowhere town of Yaleylah, Missouri where he grew up. He can’t help remembering his mom and the blood magic she practiced – memories he’s tried for five years to escape. Silla, though, doesn’t want to forget; her parents’ apparent murder-suicide left her numb and needing answers. When a book of magic spells in her dad’s handwriting appears on her doorstep, she sees her chance to unravel the mystery of their deaths.

Together they plunge into the world of dark magic, but when a hundred-year-old blood witch comes hunting for the bones of Silla’s parents and the spell book, Nick and Silla will have to let go of everything they believe about who they are, the nature of life and death, and the deadly secrets that hide in blood.

Why I'm Anticipating:

2011 Debut... plus Tessa Gratton writes with Maggie Stiefvater and Brenna Yovanoff at Merry Sisters of Fate... both of whom are amazingly talented writers! I have no doubt Ms. Gratton will be just as talented and amazing in her debut. I can't wait!


  1. Agreed! I love Maggie and Brenna's writing so I have no doubt that Tessa will wow us with her debut novel ^_^. Also this story sounds pretty darn original.
