A fiery, seductive novel of magic, secrets and love - fans of FALLEN will be equally spellbound!

My whole body shivered. I was about to find out if magic was real. The electric thrill of terror was sharp on my tongue. I cut deep.

The murder of her parents has left Silla damaged and lost, and her insistence that her father is not to blame alienates her from her friends and family. When a mysterious spell book arrives, Silla hopes it will lead to some answers about her parents' killer. In her first attempt at magic, in an old graveyard near her home, she is overseen by Nick, the new boy in town who has a chilling past of his own. Together, they must contend with a deadly immortal woman who will stop at nothing to possess the book of spells.

About the author (2012)

Tessa Gratton has wanted to be a palaeontologist or a wizard since she was seven. She was too impatient to hunt dinosaurs, but is still searching for someone to teach her magic. After travelling the world with her family, she acquired a BA (and the important parts of an MA) in gender studies, then settled down in Kansas with her partner, her cats and her mutant dog, Grendel.
Blood Magic is her debut novel.
