Book 1 in the Witch Cat Mysteries
by Vicki Vass
Fleeing from the witch trials in Salem, Terra Rowan finds herself in modern day Asheville, North Carolina. A dark spirit from the past hunts the last witch of Salem. With the help of the ladies of the Biltmore Society, Asheville aristocrats with untapped powers and a crooked-legged fat orange cat named Pixel, Terra must discover the secret within the forest to preserve the bloodline. Combining elements from different cultures, Appalachian folklore, Celtic legends, Native American mysticism, Bloodline creates a new witch mythology while staying true to the realm of cozy mystery. Terra Rowan is a witch trapped between worlds and lost in time.
BLOODLINE is one of the most fanciful, delightful tales I have read for some time.
Anyone who reads my reviews know I 99.9% only read and review cozy mysteries. But every once in a while, a book will find me (They seem to have a way of doing that) and plead with me to read it. BLOODLINE is such a book.
Falling into many different genres . . . mystery, cozy mystery/para-cozy, paranormal, fantasy . . . This story has something for just about everyone. Not only that, this book will appeal to a wide range of ages. Any reader from teens through triple digits will truly be swept away in the magic that takes place between its covers.
Having read almost every book written by author Vicki Vass, I know what an amazing writer she is. But nothing prepared me for how captivated I would become with this book. Told from the point of view of a most unusual, yet captivating protagonist, BLOODLINE was fascinating from the first page to the last. Fast paced and spellbinding, with enchantment in every sentence, I read this story in record time. Really. I couldn’t put it down for a second!
Once in a while I read a book and think how I’d love to see as a movie. I can totally see BLOODLINE being made into a feature film.
I've said it before, and I'll say it again . . . I am not a big fan of witch cozies. They just don't draw me in. (Though a couple have earned special places in my heart.)
But BLOODLINE is so much more than that. It will always be one that I remember and hold close.
