I'm trying to work out if this is a rip off of True Blood or Underworld. What is it with authors these days having to pinch others ideas. The heroine, Renee is pretty cool but then turns very predictable, and the werewolve, although he sounds like he's just ditched the movie and Kate Beckinsale, sounds cute. Thats about it. so if you want to read an ok book, with ok characters and done before storylines, read this.

I find I'm writing more and more bad reviews on here. I don't understand how half...more

Amazing!!! So many hot immortal males and only one lucky female. This is a quick paced, magical adventure. The author grabs you from the very first page and keeps you going beyond the end. Has a great set up for the next book without leaving a cliffhanger and many questions in this book. Renee is the chosen one to save her family line from an evil being and with the help of her father and the many trainers he has hired for her she has set out to destroy it. I thought this was a great read and wa...more

Like the new cover. Sadly thats about it. Couldn't finish this book. Too similar to others I've read. I notice a couple of reviews have likened it to Underworld and True Blood. I have seen underworld and YES there is likeness. a lot actually. I've only seen a couple of episodes of True Blood, I do not follow it. Yet I instantly thought of it as I read this. No Originality at all I'm sorry to say.
I was enchanted by the cover of this book and couldn’t wait to start reading it. I can’t say that I haven’t read similar plot lines before, but I did find this one quite enjoyable and incredibly entertaining. This was an action-packed, exhilarating read with loads of surprising twists.

I especially liked the fast pace at which the story moved and nowhere did I get the feeling that the plot was being dragged out. All the characters were very well developed and focus was placed on the strong bonds...more

Blood magic was a very good and exciting story of a girl named Renee Draven. She is a witch that was born with special powers and some of the powers need to be awakened. She is a typical young woman with special powers and as a young woman, she wants to do her own thing and explore her boundaries and of course doesn’t want her parents telling her what is best for her. The story is very funny with sad moments and riveting moments of excitement. You never know what is going to happen next. She has...more

Blood Magic is the first book in The Draven Witch series by Zoey and Luna Sweete. It's about a girl named Renee who is half vampire, half witch. She must kill Damaskeos, the evil vampire that has killed all her ancestors, before he kills her first.

This book is a fast paced, action packed book. A lot of scenes actually happened too quickly without enough detail. To me, the writing was a little odd. Something just seemed off, which is probably the result of 2 people writing...more

I read this book in one sitting! I couldn't believe the world that Zoey transported me into! It has action,drama, and romance all in one! I highly recommend this book to people looking for a paranormal read that isn't your typical vampire/werewolf story!! Getting started on book 2 ASAP!!
Kirsty Vizard
Blood Magic, the first book in Zoey Sweete's Draven Witch series, is an appealing paranormal story, in which the reader finds witch/vampire hybrid Renee Draven hunted by Damaskeos, an Original vampire .
Zoey Sweete uses this first installment to document the history between the Draven witch family and the evil Damaskeos, allowing the reader to understand the power held by Renee and preparing us for the mental and physical battles ahead.
Blood Magic has relentless pace, compelling the reader to c...more
I was gifted a copy of this book by the author. This book was amazing! A witch vampire on a quest to save the world. I truly enjoyed her escapades while searching for her true love and mate. Can't wait for more!

I received this book to give an honest review.
I really enjoyed this book more than I thought I would. You have Renee who has been in hiding pretty much until it is time for her to come into the mortal world and defend her bloodline. Renee isn't your normal witch, she is a hybrid which is pretty bad ass all in itself. She is part witch and part vampire. But her vampire side isn't fully awaken yet and that is when Dante comes into play.
Now I had a problem with Renee opening her legs at such a qui...more

I retract my review of this book.
When I received this book in return for a review from the author, Zoey Sweete it came to me in a PDF format and I was so excited to read it I dove right into it and we all know I love anything to do with vampires and witches. I was excited to read it because it didn't seem like it was going to be just another vampire book, it really peeked my interest when the main character was half vampire half witch. I asked my self "how can this be, I was always under the belief that vamps and witches hated...more

Zoey Sweete Did a wonderful job writing this book, it really has everything in it vampires, demons, shifters and witches you name it, it’s got it. Blood Magic had me captivated from Chapter 1, it’s a fast paced read from start to finish that will leave you wanting the next book!

I received this book in return for an honest review and would like to thank the Miss Sweete for such a wonderful gift.

Blood Magic is the first in the Draven Witch Series, and a great one at that. The story itself was awesome. Every page you find something more, and the beings in the book are really very interesting. There is history well placed, passion well executed, and the dialogue was great.

We start the story with Renee, a young woman that has lived her entire existence on an alternate plane...more

Blood Magic is an interesting, action packed story that is fast paced excitement and adventure from start to finish.
It is a story of personal discovery, first time love, and imminent doom.

Full of all my favourite supernatural elements like witches, vamps and were’s; Blood Magic has something for everyone.

The main character Renee has a lot going on in her life.
She’s about to turn 21, she’s never been so much as kissed and the fate of the entire world weighs heavily on her shoulders.
Renee really...more

This was a very good, edge of your seat, nail biter. The story is about a young girl named Renee Draven. She is half witch, half vampire. She is believed to be the only one who can destroy Damaskeos, the vampire that has killed every woman in her family but her and her mother. He drains them of their powers and takes in their powers. Her great grandmother Annabelle foresees her as being the one to save the Draven bloodline. Before Renee's 21st birthday, she goes into training to learn to fight D...more

Blood Magic, the first in the Draven Witch Series, is one of those books that has it all: vampires, demons, shifters, witches—you name it, it’s got it. Filled with an incredible cast of characters, all well written and highly developed, this book keeps you locked in until the very end. Written by a two-person writing team, Zoey Sweete, the book flows easily and there is never a point where it seems two people wrote the book.

While I loved every single character, there was so much going on in this...more

Having had this book on my Kindle for quite some time, I decided to read it this weekend.

I must say at first I was upset the cover had changed. The one I have here is much more original and eye catching. However, I'm sorry to say that no matter what was on the cover, no matter how beautiful or eye catching it may be, it masks a very poorly written, poorly edited story.

Blood Magic tells the story of Renee Draven, a witch who with a destiny which includes becoming a witch/vampire hybrid, and des...more

This story will shock you in so many ways. There are so many awesome characters in the story!It won't take you long to fall in love with them.

The story is exciting and packed full of action! There are some very intense moments and some very sweet moments.Plus a few bittersweet moments. I totally loved the banter between Renee and Dante in some parts. They had me laughing out loud and I know a few snorts slipped out. I loved it when Dante pushed Renee off the cliff.She was yelling at him and Da...more

I was given this book in return for an honest review. Renee Draven is the last of the Draven bloodline, her mother's powers are no longer very strong. Renee is also 1/2 vampire, the powers of which will be awakened by Dante, her father's creator, if they can find him. He has been gone since his brother was sent to Tarrak through a portal over 100 years ago. Renee was raised and constantly guarded in Aeureus dimension to keep her safe from the man in her dreams/premonitions, Damaskeos. He has hun...more

Witches, werewolves and vampires make this story so very interesting. A half witch half human with vampire is what this is about. Renee is to have her vampire side awakened on her birthday but trying to stay alive is getting harder. The evil power hungry vampire Damaskeos has been killing her family for centuries is waiting for her. It was prophesied that she would be the strongest witch and would kill him. This has action, intrigue, love and sex. I really enjoyed reading this book and have gott...more

I loved it! It was a fabulous paranormal read!! It had so much action in it too some books have too much down time for me not this book. It was face passed action filled! Loved it. The few down times were yummy!! It's a fabulous beginning to what I know is going to be a great series!! Then ending was just enough of a cliffhanger to have me needing the next one.
It has vampires, werewolves, were lions, Valkyrie, demon, demon hunters, and the vamp/witch hybrid who has had enough!! I can't wait to r...more

This is awesome read by Zoey Sweete as we follow Renee Craven as she prepares herself to waken the blood in herself to face the ultimate evil. She wants a normal life but will the duty she feels win over? Will the faith in her that her family has in her help? This a most read that will keep you captive in it's pages as you are transferred into the story. I can't wait for book 2 to come out and to continue the series. If you haven't read this book then you really need to that is my thought..

i was given this book as a gift for an honest review ~waAr~

this book does have a lot of editing errors in it, but are easily over looked when you start reading and getting into the story line which is amazing. a few squirm worthy scenes help the book.

I loved this book. Renee, William, Dante these and other characters are awesome.. Zoey Sweete is a great other!!! Can't wait to get Blood Vengeance.. I love reading about Vampires and Witches and for Renee to be both is AWESOMENESS!!! Blood Magic is a great read.
What a great story this was full from that start packed with everything a great story needs, love, the paranormal, action.

Zoey Sweete has been writing since she was around twelve years old. Always able to explain how she felt or put what she was thinking better on paper than saying it, writing became an outlet for her. The paper did not judge her or talk back, but listened to her inner struggles and allowed her to be free. It became a form of therapy for her.

Zoey Sweete is known for her Draven Witch Series but does n...more
