This book has a great idea but I feel it wasn't executed very well. There were a lot of characters who weren't consistent and a lot of stuff wasn't well research. Although magic in fiction can be whatever you want, there wasn't enough put in to catch my interest. There were only three or four flowers/herbs mentioned when plants were supposed to be big in getting energy, and the blood magic was inconsistent in that everyone used blood but then someone was considered a rare blood witch. Then she used runes, which is cool, but never named a rune, and never described a rune, and didn't explain what the runes were. This made me lose interest as there didn't seem to be much research or world-building. Also slicing large sections is getting old in fiction in general, even if you can heal fast. It is unnecessary for blood magic and would be very, very messy.

I did like the vampires and the idea that they are her guardians was pretty cool. I just wished I could find out more about them, and wished they weren't quite as resistant in helping her when they are supposed to be her guardians. The grammar and writing was done well and it was easy to read. Recommend for people wanting a different take on the vampire x witch genre.
