REVIEW: Blood Song by Rhiannon Hart

blood song

Blood Song by Rhiannon Hart (Lharmell #1) Random House Australia (Sept 2011) Paperback, 290 pages YA Fantasy I love vampire books so when Blood Song came up for review, described as Game of Thrones crossed with Twilight, I jumped at the chance to read it.

Blood Song opened in a typical fairy story fashion: widowed mother, Queen Renata, who had used up the family fortune, desired that…

Dark Magic by James Swain (Peter Warlock #1) Tor Books (May 2012) Hardback, 352 pages Urban Fantasy I sometimes select books based on their titles without knowing any further details, I did this with Dark Magic thinking it would have something to do with witches. What I found was a sinister, supernatural thriller based in New York City, written from the third person point of view, following a group of psychics who use their gifts to try and help others.
