Summary: Two centuries before the great Immortal Battle, a radical clan of witches united with one of the most powerful Druidic families. Under attack from the evil Kiana and her minions, they conspired to prevent the extinction of their ancient magical bloodlines.
Little did they know the magic forged during that All Hallows Eve would not only secure the continuation of their lineage, but would in fact create a new being, a new magic, that could someday save the entire world.
The Bloodstone Oracle is the second short story companion to The Dark Gifts series.
Ok, So I loved Afterlife and if you have not read it, then you should before you read this, as it all ties in and you would be completely lost, this is not a stand alone book, so I would highly recommend you read afterlife first, here is the link, to get you started, http://www.amazon.com/Afterlife-Dark-Gifts-Companions-ebook/dp/B007XY2SGA/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1345375626&sr=1-1&keywords=willow+cross+afterlife, This novella is a back story to all the Dark Gifts Series by Willow Cross which I adored, this one is no exception, it has all my favourite characters in it, I know a lot of you loved William and Angie from Afterlife, they are also in this one, not a big part but they are still in it, I would highly recommend it, especially if you love a great back story, 5/5
This is the second companion novella in the Dark Gifts Series. I purchased it from Amazon.co.uk as I had read both Bk#1, Bk#2, and the first companion novella "Afterlife" and naturally wanted to know more about the witches part and how they became tangled up in the supernatural war.
I think the cover is very "witchy"enchanted looking, and as it has the trees it represents the places described in the novella well.
Like all the other books in this series, this novella captivates you very quickly, even more so than the first novella. The bloodstone Oracle has been mentioned in "Inheritance" so of course you immediately want to know more. This novella tells the story of Michael meeting the witches from the witches point of view and then goes on to tell us about how the witches continue their journey.
As in all her books, the descriptions are detailed but not overly so that you get bored and wish to skip paragraphs. The imagery conjured by the descriptions is easily found and instantly attainable. I love how each book/novella kind of back tracks and has a part in it from another book but it is given to the reader from a different characters point of view. You get to see all sides of the forthcoming battle and learn the reasons why certain races, and people are entangled in the fight.
So did I enjoy this novella? Yes, definitely worth the price I paid too. Would I read more in this series / by Willow Cross? Yes I intend as I am (Im)patiently waiting fro Bk#3 in the Dark Gifts Series by Willow Cross as I am almost equally (im)patient for Bk#3 in the Oceans Of Red series by Willow Cross. Would I recommend this book? Yes I recommend both the Dark Gift's Series and the Ocean's Of Red Series too.
Hunted by an enemy that wants to exterminate her line and destroy the line of her people she is forced to flee. With her mate Damien they begin the journey. A journey that takes them to gain a promise from an ancient vampire to do whatever the wearer of the bloodstone bids. Everything depends on the oath to protect the Oracle.
You have to read the Bloodstone Oracle and uncover the secrets within.
This is the second companion in the Dark Gifts Series. The book takes place two centuries before the great Immortal Battle. Great lengths are taken to protect a ancient magical bloodline from extinction, but will it be enough? It all comes down to believing promises made by strangers and the fate that has already been put into play. Will a glimpse into to future be enough to guide them on the right path?
A great add to the Dark Gifts series. A must read for true fans. I will give you that extra piece to the puzzle that holds the hidden truth. I have read all of the Dark Gifts Series so far, and I love them all. The author continues to amaze me and always leaves me wanting more. The next book in the series can't come fast enough!
