Blood Magic – Tessa Gratton – Google Books
For such a fast-paced plot, I read it painstakingly slow. I also loved the journal entries and how it tied into the storyline. Completely unlikeable characters Nick, at least. Now on to “Blood Magic. Silla’s, Nick’s, and “the creepy lady who possesses people” also known as Josephine.
The ones …more It blokd on which masks you’re talking about. Yes, there are exceptions, but this book wasn’t one of them. Witness to all of this is newcomer Nick Pardee.
It had enough twists, grattton one thing I appreciate is the fact that Tessa Gratton is not an author vlood Blood Magic is the story of Silla, whose parents had just tragically died, and her discovery of magic through the use of blood. Along with Astrid Glyn, a teen prophet who’s dreamed of Baldur’s location, Soren takes off on a road trip across the United States of Asgard in search of the lost god and a new future. It was typical love at first sight, drown in each other’s eyes, the sun does not rise until I see your smile stuff without one hint of actual reasons for such devotion.
Un libro realmente bueno. I’ll start off by saying, I had mixed feelings about this book. The spells share one common ingredient: Not only that, but I was turned off by Nick grattonn Silla “babe” all the time.
What am i saying; now she’s going to cry over him too. Please kill her; that is all. What’s his hair and eye color? But for me, the characters weren’t strong enough to make me want to continue with the series. But instead of mythical creatures, blood magic has everything to do with primal human desires like power, wealth, and immortality.
She develops a relationship with new-guy-on-the-block, Nicholas. Just that I was. To view it, click here. We know which button sends the messages on a cell phone, Tessa. I can’t believe this has been sitting on my shelf for so long and I’ve been missing out on its greatness.
A new neighborhood guy, Nicholas, sees Silla cutting her finger and reviving a dead leaf and is intrigued by her. The novel starts with Silla performing blood magic for the very first time at the cemetery where her parents are buried. It’s kind of funny that this book mentions Harry Potter, because I’d rather be reading that this very instant than this garbage.
Tessa Gratton writing is cunningly crafted in a way that makes this book standout in a mysterious lushish way. Some of the scenes needed a little tweaking and I wish the author would have let the romance just be. Gratton knows how to write a kiss — instead of seeming like hormone-driven lust, their unabashed awe of one another strikes a romantic chord.
Way to go Silla and Nick; this is why idiots shouldn’t play with or handle fire; it’s partly Eric’s fault too for giving Silla the fire. Open Preview See a Problem? I loved the dark feel to the book and the magic First Sentence: Mar 25, Chibineko rated it really liked it Shelves: On the positive – I did like Silla. This probably would’ve made for a more decent story line. The only character who isn’t entirely winning is Nick.
Silla sounds like Nick–they both sound like teenage girls. The whole rhyming spells aka bad poetry thing is silly. May 04, Wendy Darling rated it it was ok Shelves: We see none of that asshole-ness, some people would argue he was much too “in love” with Silla to act like a dick to her, but I’ve been around my share of guys, and there are moments when their inherent dickheadedness would peek up at the surface.
The characters were just vapid.
This book has more chapters than Harry potter books: And it inspired me to write one of my books, so Tessa Gratton and I have that in common. Three pearls dropped off and rolled down the tiled hallway.
It seems so belittling. Well anyways, this book is refreshingly un-vampy. It struck me as strange, and took away from my liking of their relationship. Plus she’s friends with Maggie Stiefvater, so that makes her made-of-awesome in my book. If you stayed in that house after you found your parents dead, why would you move just because of dead Magci
