Blood Oath by Samantha Coville
I was really looking forward to this dark fantasy (my favourite kind!) but, although it has an imaginative plot, the story fell short in execution. I found the writing was a little repetitive and did not flow as smoothly as it could have.
In a risky move, Samantha Coville names ‘current’ stars like Taylor Lautner, who is already off the ‘hot list’. Could this date the book and put future readers off?
