Book Description

When Faith’s mother starts organising the second stage of her arranged marriage to wizard, Damien, Faith knew she needed to escape, so she used her school as a place to retreat. Throughout her after school duties, she meets the intense, alluring Rohan, who changes her life forever. With his ice cold skin, transfixing eyes and enchanting voice, Rohan took hold of Faith’s heart and soul as soon as they looked at each other.

She knew it was wrong.

They were from two different circles and if the Elder’s found out, the consequences would be catastrophic for all involved, but the more time they spent together, the stronger they’re love grew, until one day someone sees them and they are forced to go on the run together.

Will their love be strong enough to combat their conflicting mythical needs? And what will they do when Faith is dealt a life threatening blow that forces her to make a heartbreaking decision?

4.0 out of 5 stars Great storyline! 12 May 2013
By WickedLovely - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
*I received this book from the author, via Goodreads, in exchange for an honest review*

First, I really liked this book. It had a great storyline, and a good cast of supernatural creatures. It is a decidedly different concept from the supernatural/human love stories.

Now, that being said, I got a little confused at times simply because of following the particulars of each different supernatural group. The text was a little bit "busy", but done in such a way as to pull you in and make you want to keep reading. I liked how the character grows, physically and mentally, throughout the book. I am ready to find out what happens next!

Overall, this is a great read, especially if you like your paranormal romances a bit different. :)

Thanks to the author for letting me review!

4.0 out of 5 stars Forbidden Love... 31 Mar. 2013
By feams8 - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
There are many mystical elements in Split Blood: The Ancient Codex, not your habitual vampire, werewolf, gang.
Fairies, (an interesting twist) witches, werewolves, vampires, all coagulate to add in this boiling pot of characters.
Forbidden love opposites from different sects, Faith & Rohan set out on a dangerous sequence with all the probabilities against them.
The romantically aspects between Faith & Rohan, nicely woven in you actually feel for the characters.
I have to say Split Blood comes across as an adventurous attempt to add new and different elements to a genre that is slowly wearing thin.
This book takes the obsession with the dark and mystical side to a new dimension in Split Blood: The Ancient Codex fantasy romantic tale.-EK Ellis

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow!! This book is amazing!! 18 Dec. 2013
By Losman - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
I received this book from the author free of charge in exchange for an honest review.

The book starts with Faith learning that her and her sister Raven are witches. Faith’s life spirals out of her control from this moment on. She learns she is promised in marriage to Damien, who she doesn’t even like. She has to learn all the rules of her world and the other circles, while learning to live undetected in the human world and learning how to control and practice her magic. As her marriage to Damien gets closer, Faith finds escape at school in the human world. Here she meets Lily, who is a fairy, and they develop a close friendship. She also meets Rohan for the first time at school and is immediately drawn to him. There are rules against different circles being together but Faith and Rohan decide to take the chance. From that moment their lives are irrevocably changed forever.

This book is amazingly gripping and well written. I could not put it down!! I highly recommend it to anyone wanting a new take on the paranormal!

I would like to thank Louise Herman for the opportunity to read this book! I can’t wait to start the next one in this series!!

"She knew it was wrong."

Star-crossed lovers Faith and Rohan are chased by everything unimaginable. All each of them want is time together and to not be held to a future they did not chose. Louise Herman, author of The Ancient Codex, has begun readers' exploration into a counterworld of our own. This was a fairly easy read. However, there were times that is was over narrated. We've all read books that stumbled at times but this one does not lose too much of its charm at those moments...along with minor gramatical errors.

Faith and her sister Raven have been kept in the dark regarding their special legacy within the world of humans and supernaturals. "A world filled with magic, witches, werewolves, vampires and fairies trying to exist in the modern 21st Century." Not only that but their futures have already been decided for them.

In flies Rohan, irresistible succubus. Uh oh! Didn't anyone read their Ancient Codex homework? This isn't allowed. But with the help of all their modern thinking friends who fight witch, vampire, fairy, and werewolf racism lines, their attraction will have a chance to be born and grow.

There will be six books in the Split Blood series. Book #2 expected to release November 2013.

To learn more about Faith and Rohan's ancestors you can read Blood Moon.
4.0 out of 5 stars Great story! 22 May 2013
By Brian & Tanya Johnson - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
Everything in Faith's life is not normal; she is a witch who has an arranged marriage to Damien, a wizard her age. She doesn't like Damien but has decided to make an effort to get to know him since they will have to spend the rest of their life together. With everything going on, Faith's need to escape all the happenings brings her to the one place she knows she can and that is at school.

While at school she meets Rohan, a vampire and feels herself drawn to him both heart and soul although they both know this wrong (inter-circle relationships are forbidden). Both knowing that what they feel for each other they hide their growing relationship from others until one day they are seen.

Faith and Rohan decide that their love means more to them than anything else so they run off together so that they can be together forever, hiding from the Elders and then one day they are given information that will change them forever.

I really enjoyed this book right from the beginning. I grew attached to Faith and Rohan's love story seeing how they choose love over law and would do anything so that they could stay together. The story moved along perfectly with no gaps or too much information, and there were enough events that took place to keep you enthralled. Without giving away any of the story because that wouldn't be fun, there is one major decision that Faith has to make regarding something that will set a whole other slew of events to take place throughout the story and is very interesting to say the least J I am definitely looking forward to the second book in this series to see what happens next!
