Morrigan’s Blood - Book Review (repost)


Morrigan’s Blood (Crow's Curse #1)
by Laura Bickle

What is it about:
Garnet has the blood of the legendary Morrigan – and legions of vampires and witches will go to war to possess that power.

As a trauma surgeon, Garnet Conners has seen more than her fair share of blood. But when one of her patients walks off the operating table and disappears into the night, she finds herself caught in a war between legions of vampires and witches in her city.

Garnet has dreamed of bloody battlefields for years – and a mysterious lover who controls a kingdom. In her waking life, Garnet is shocked to meet that man in a club. Merrel knows her from another life, a life in which she was the legendary Morrigan, goddess of death and war.

Garnet rejects the notion of magical incarnations altogether. But she falls in with Sorin, a handsome warlock who’s determined to protect the former bootlegger city of Riverpointe from a secret society of vampires. Haunted by crows and faced with undeniable proof of magic, Garnet scrambles to protect her career and loved ones from magical violence.

Abducted by vampires who seek to turn her into a vampire against her will, can Garnet seize the power of the legendary Morrigan to forge her own path in her embattled city? Or will she be forced to serve as a fearsome weapon in a deadly nocturnal war?

What did I think of it:
You bet I jumped on the chance to read this book early, I love Laura Bickle's writing!

And with Morrigan's Blood she once again drew me in and kept me engaged from start to finish.

Garnet is a cool heroine. She had many setbacks in life, but kept going and is now working as a trauma surgeon, but then suddenly disaster seems to follow her where ever she goes. 

The mood and atmosphere were really intense and fittig the story.

I was eager to find out about Garnet and about the Morrigan she dreams about. I also loved Garnet's friends and was rooting for them all to stay safe. And then there are Merrel and Sorin. They clearly both have their hidden agenda, so I wasn't sure who was to be trusted.  

There was also a character who kept turning up, who seems unrelated to the events, but I really do wonder if there's more to her. I hope to find out more about her in the next book.

I couldn't put this book down until I finished it, and I can tell you I'm more than eager for the next one, because I want and need more!

Why should you read it:
Vampires, witches, crows... what more could you want!
