THE BLOOD SPELL is Redwine's 4th installment in the Ravenspire companion series, this time retelling Cinderella. The story remains true to the original's themes of kindness and perseverance, but the darker currents are also intensified. My jaw continuously dropped at the unique twists and turns throughout Blue and Kellan's journey. While every villain in this series has been compelling, Dinah may be the most formidable and down-right scariest of the lot. Her motivations remain understandable just as her actions remain horrifying.
Blue and Kellan are dynamic and engaging characters in their own rights. They both feel immense grief over the death of a loved one and manage their emotions differently. Both also have strong hearts that break at the wrongdoings within the kingdom. Their forbidden romance has something for everyone: witty banter, some shameless flirting, and later, enough tears to warrant a whole tissue box.
With description that brings you right into the shop with Blue, emotion that reverberates in the chest, and a pace quicker than the stroke of midnight, THE BLOOD SPELL is pure magic.
