Book Review—Split Blood: The Ancient Codex part 1

Amazon Summary:

December 14, 2012

When Faith’s mother starts organizing 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…

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?


    This was sent to me by the author on GoodReads in exchange for an honest review. That said, I didn’t really know anything about it apart from the summary. The summary wasn’t the clearest in the world as I was surprised to learn that the story is in modern time and a set apart magic area. I really enjoyed the book because of that aspect. Faith learned that she is a witch and that she is arranged to be married to a boy that she can’t stand. The marriage process is long and leads to her falling in love with a guy who is not a warlock, but a vampire instead. I know what you’re thinking, “not more vampires!” Don’t think that. It isn’t typical. Faith learns that she was prophesied to be the strongest witch to come from her circle and that leads to a desperate search to find her and kill her. This is a great book for anyone who enjoys paranormal romance. It is different from many that are already on the market. I’m ready for the next book already!

I’d probably rate this between a 3.5-4. It was great, but the beginning took off a bit fast and I was a tad confused. After awhile, it got to a better pace that was much easier to follow. Don’t let this deter you though. It is only .99 on Amazon!
