But with a bruised heart can Jess learn to forgive or will she find new love in the United States? Witchlove, the third installment of the Witchblood series, is a new adventure that takes Jess from New England to Voodoo country in the South.

my review

I have been an unabashed fan of Emma’s books since the very first one, Witchblood.  This series takes witchy stories and vampy stories and weaves them together in a completely unique way.  I think that this one is my favorite thus far.  Over the course of the books, Jess has grown a lot and it is obvious in this book, as she takes charge of her own life and her own future in ways she hadn’t before.  I loved that new confidence and maturity in her character.  I was all kinds of angry at her love, Daniel, for big parts of the last two books, and I loved that Jess stood up to him and took charge of her own heart!  There was a ton of action and mystery and intrigue in this book, with twists and turns all throughout the book.  There is also a lot more darkness in this story, with dips into voodoo, zombies, and completely non-paranormal family dysfunction of all kinds!

Things to love…

  • Jess.  She has changed a lot over the course of the books and I loved her in this book.  She is her own person now, able to stand up for herself and I loved seeing that in a character that is impossible not to love.
  • The new American characters.  Saffy is a real piece of work, but she added a lot to the story.  Jess’ American family and all of their different personalities added a lot to the story.
  • Brittany and her Louisiana family.  Brittany ad her family were a huge part of the plot in this book and they were the kind of people you love to hate.  I just wanted to grab Brittany and hug her throughout the book!

Run, don’t walk, and buy this book and the previous two!  This is a fantastic series that will keep you turning the pages to the very end and leave wanting MORE!!

About Emma Mills

Emma Mills is a stay-at-home mum, who after a recent move 200 miles south now lives in the beautiful county of Somerset, in the UK. She shares her home with her husband, two children, a dog, 3 cats, a house rabbit and a tankful of fish.

Emma grew up and later went to university to study English in the city of Manchester and for the first decade of her adult life lived in a small town on the edge of the Peak District. It was here, looking after her babies and compulsively reading YA fiction that the ideas for her debut novel, WitchBlood began to take root.

A UK literary agent was secured, however it soon became apparent that she had missed the paranormal popularity boat by about six months, as all the publishers lists were full. With the characters not taking ‘no’ for an answer Emma decided to join the huge ranks of indie authors out there and go it alone. WitchBlood was published in 2012, swiftly followed by WitchCraft and WitchLove. Emma finished the series and published the finale WitchHunt a week after moving her family south to Somerset, in November 2013.

Emma is now working on a new and exciting YA project. A three book series unlike her last, where all the characters are human, there are no vampires, no spell casting and no demons rising. A series that will rip your emotions to shreds and leave you breathless… hopefully!
