Thanks for posting your question, and I'm so happy to hear that you're enjoying the series so far. To answer your questions, yes, I have been planning this series for quite some time. About 6 years, actually! I used part of BLOOD ROSE as my undergraduate and graduate school theses. The inspiration for the series came from a lack of finding the "right book" when reading. That's when I knew I wanted to become a writer. I couldn't find the book I wanted to read, so I wrote it. :) (less)

Danielle Rose has created a seamless transition from the superb first book in this series, to this excellent continuation. I found this second book to be as good as, if not better than the first book.

The vampire, witchy setting is a great blend of two of the best paranormals out there, and Rose makes it even better by adding in the angst and fear that their world may be in danger. The story really does have you hooked within the first few chapters. You become so involved in the characters and
Ashley Martinez (ilovebooksandstuffblog)
An enjoyable continuation of the first book. I really like the originality of the plot. The story was well paced and I was excited to see more depth of the characters and a little more of a glimpse into this new world. I like the idea of a hybrid vampire/witch. I just wish there was more explanation with the power and stuff since she seemed to learn it in a matter of seconds.
I do like where the story is going and am interested to read more about the characters. I'm still on the fence with the

*I received an ARC of this book.*

Blood Magic, the follow up to Danielle Roses Blood Rose, may be one of those few books where the sequel is even better than the original. Rose takes the world she created in her first book to new heights with secrets, lies, betrayal, and the threat of a vampire war that raises the stakes to new levels.

At the end of Blood Rose, Avah Taylor, a witch turned vampire, was left devastated when her new vampire coven was attacked and her priestess captured by Rogue

I am so hooked on this series!! Once I started reading I couldn't put this down. The high priestess have been taken by rogues. Avah and the hunters have to save her, but to do that Avah has to use blood magic to locate her. The only problem, she learns what she has been taught growing up is a lie. Needing the witches help, they go to Avah's old coven. What she finds there, her mother almost dead and her evil grandmother is ruling, puts her on the defensive.

I have been really enjoying the series. There are interesting twists and turns that keep you in suspense. The characters are very well written and I enjoy how they relate to one another.

The relationship between Avah and Jasak is very strong and feels right to both of them. Avah is exploring her powers and learning more which in some ways could jeopardize their bond. She is also learning more about the witches and her role as a chosen.

There is an intriguing storyline about saving their high

As witch-recently-turned-vampire Avah Taylor settles into (un-)life with her new vampire coven, she joins her fellow Hunters, vampire protectors of the coven, in conducting a search for their lost High Priestess, who was captured at the end of the last novel. While they roam across the Pacific Northwest of America, Avah learns more about herself and her abilities with the help of half-breed witch-vampire like herself,

Blood Magic picks up shortly after the ending of Blood Rose and in the aftermath of the battle with the Rogue vampires and the kidnapping of Avah's high priestess. Avah and her team set out to track down their leader and uncover some closely held secrets and some new friends and enemies.

In this sequel, the relationship between Jasik and Avah is solidified, after some initial upset from the surprise guest at the end of the first book. There is more heat in this sequel than in Blood Rose and can't

Rating 4.75/5 stars!
Don't be mad at me for the rating I have an explanation for it, and I am gonna write it at the end, as Grand-Finale.
Ok, so Blood Magic starts right were Blood Rose finishes. Some big questions we had in the first book find their answers here in the second chapter of this series and I loooved it. I loved it. Really. What I mostly liked about Blood Magic is the character development, especially Malik and Lillie's characters: I appreciated

Blood Magic picks up seamlessly right where Blood Rose finished (with the aftermath of the Rogue battle). The house is left reeling not only from the loss of their comrades, but also the fact that no one knows if their leader is dead or alive, and if that wasn't enough, it doesn't look like anyone is going to catch a break soon! We learn more about the mystery that is Sebastian (yay!), and believe me when I say that he will soon become one of your favorite characters (and possibly another love ...more

The first time I met with Danielle Rose's writing in Blood Rose, I thought it's very good, high qulity and prime. Her writing style has the power to pull you right into the story.

Reading Blood Magic was an even more intense experience.
I think Avah's character got more matured with all the things that happened around and inside her. I love how brave and determined is Avah, even in her hardest moments.

I still have a massive crush on Jasik <3
I love the Hunters, too, and Sebastian is a really

Once again this author has blown me away, Blood Rose (book 1 ) was a wicked read and book 2 Blood Magic is even better.
It picks up exactly where book 1 finished..
It was very well written and flowed with great ease and a steady pace.
I love the characters, Avah is maturing and coming into her powers in ways that are surprising to all.
I was very pleased to learn more about Sebastian.
There was more heat in this book which was very nice.

Blood Magic is the second book in the Blood Books trilogy by Danielle Rose. She presents us with a deliciously intense story filled with jealousy, betrayal, love, and war. When I thought this series couldnt get any more better than it already is, I was proven wrong.

Just as her relationship with Jasik is hotting up, Avah finds herself caught between his jealousy and her friendship with Sebastian. Like Avah, Sebastian is a hybrid who fulfils Avahs request to train her on her abilities. During her

After all Avah went thru, she didn't think it could get any worse.
I would love to give 10+ stars if I could! A must read
It would be helpful if you read the first book in the series.
The team are going on a journey that could bring them closer or tear them apart. Many twists and turns, with a few surprises thrown in.
Happy Reading!!

We got to learn so much more about Avah, she is my new Book Chick, I love a girl vamp who has a mind of her own, knows what she wants and goes after it as best as she can, she became a much more defined Vamp/witch or Hybrid as they are known.

I don't want to give too much away, but I cried so hard at some places in this book, but then I love a book that makes you cry in a good way, Malik seems to be warming up to Avah, but then emotions like those

This story is an amazing follow on from Blood Rose. After learning secrets kept from her the whole time she was growing up changes everything she thought she knew.

This second book took place at the end of the previous one, the priestess has been abducted and Jasik, Malik, Avah, Lillie and Jeremiah are preparing to go and retrieve her. Theyre going to find quite unexpected help with Sebastian and other hybrids.

I liked this second book which offers us a little more action, we also discovered more about hybrids and their powers. This promises a rather impressive final battle, as in the first book I would have liked to see a little more magic. However the

Blood Magic is the second book in the series and I highly recommend going and reading book one first, you won't be disappointed. It picks up basically where it left off, our hero vampires are trying to find their leader and will stop at nothing to get to her even if that means teaming up with unlikely groups. Avah is figuring more about who and what she is with each day. Blood Magic is action packed, a new twist on your paranormal stories that leaves you needing more.

Book two brings Avah and the hunters, along with Sebastian in search of Amicia. Along the way Avah begins to tap into her abilites more and also finds out some secrets that may affect her and her life with Jasik and the vampires. Faced with an epic battle, they all must put aside thier worries and focus on staying alive. This story provides us with more information about the hybrids and future events. I am excited to see what Book Three brings.
Note: I received an ARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest reviews.

This was even better than Blood Rose! The story picks up right where the first book ends and is just as fast-paced! I still love Jasik! The love he and Avah share is just so beautiful! I love the fact that Avah begins to learn her new abilities and her dynamic with Sebastian. I'm not okay with the way this book ended, but all in all still was a good read!
