Blood Oath by Samantha Coville

Blood Oath by Samantha Coville Blood Oath

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?

Did I like it? The answer is yes, but I don’t think I would pick up the sequel3 Star.

The fact that I received this copy of this book from the author does not influence my policy to write an honest review.
