Impeccable read with multidimensional, mysterious entities.
'Blood Seed' is a powerful tale of survival, love, struggle and strength with immaculate imagination that is masterfully penned down with rich & exquisite descriptive prose and intricate narrative.
A creepy darkness from Riftwoods has been engulfing Sheft's freedom to happiness all his life since childhood, forcing him to stay aloof and isolated until Mariat's love brings with itself the power of self discovery for Sheft and the stre

Amazing writing!

The characters are believable, many rooting interests, so the readers for the characters plights and their triumphs!

The scenes are vivid, the details, create a lasting impression, even long after the covers are closed.

The writing is easy to read, so I flew threw the book; kept flipping pages, because I wanted to find out what would happen next.

Excited to see what will happen in the next book!

Sheft is an eighteen-year-old who harbors a deadly secret: his blood, when shed, attracts a terrifying entity that threatens his small village. Convinced that he is a danger to all around him, Sheft keeps himself apart. So when he falls in love, it's an unexpected (and in some ways unwanted) experience that he believes can only lead to tragedy.

That's the basic gist of Blood Seed. Veronica Dale could easily have stopped here, focusing on the developing romance and Sheft's struggle to break his bo

Well done! I really enjoyed this book. The characters are vivid and I truly cared about Sheft and Mariat and what happens next. Can't wait for the next book.

The hump
This book had a few chapters at the beginning which almost put me off the book, but I persevered. The child Sheft chapters seemed to me to be unnecessary. His childhood trauma is repeated over and over in the book that I think Veronica Dale could remove the opening chapters. However, once the story gets over this hump, I found that the characters became more natural and slowly grew into their selves. There are a few hiccups along the way, such as the magic not quite being explained until

I loved the characters and the page-turning suspense in Blood Seed.

It's beautifully written, with a highly-charged atmosphere that builds tension throughout the story. At points I was saying 'yikes' out loud as I read.

Highly recommended for anyone who likes novels that take them away into intriguing new worlds and make them forget they're reading.

Can't wait to read the next book in the series.
