The first in a trilogy, Blood To Blood is a young adult modern fantasy novel about a girl, Angelika Brown, who decides to follow her dreams despite going against her family’s ancient traditions and secrets. She’s got an amazing voice and a chance to be a star. Problem is, the pursuit of her dream to be a pop singer may kill everyone around her:
Enter the world of Bostonian teen Angelika Brown: budding pop star and descendant of an immortal race of sun-loving blood drinkers known as Shimshana (the vampire prototype).
Defying her parents’ traditions of higher education (and secrecy), Angel plans to ditch high school to be a singer. She’s got an amazing voice, but she’s also maturing into a full-grown Shimshana complete with fearsome power and insatiable bloodlust. What’s worse, her soaring vocals are now capable of destroying everything, and everyone, within earshot; including her girl group, their mysterious producer and Angel’s hunky new blood donor. To top it off, she must prove her worthiness to live by passing the tests in her Mahá–the ancient, mandatory coming-out-party for new-born immortals.
Will Angel survive her Mahá and quickly learn to control her new abilities? Or will her killer instincts bring her promising career, and her life, to an end?
“The sound of his heartbeat was the background music banging in my ears as I, in a daze, took another step forward. My fingers itched with the desire to pull through the gold-tinged hair hanging less than an inch from my face. His eyes narrowed and his head cocked to the side. He was exposing his neck…yes, as if he was offering it to me. I inhaled his scent again and my brain switched off.
Led by my watering mouth, I closed the gap between us and placed my lips on his neck.”
“I liked the romance here, since it’s not too awkward, not too slow, and not too forward. It is completely appropriate for youths, since it’s definitely NOT like Fifty Shades of Grey. Ugh. Best of all, though, it was actually believable.” – Book Addict
