Description: Garnet has the blood of the legendary Morrigan – and legions of vampires and witches will go to war to possess that power.
As a trauma surgeon, Garnet Conners has seen more than her fair share of blood. But when one of her patients walks off the operating table and disappears into the night, she finds herself caught in a war between legions of vampires and witches in her city.
Garnet has dreamed of bloody battlefields for years – and a mysterious lover who controls a kingdom. In her waking life, Garnet is shocked to meet that man in a club. Merrel knows her from another life, a life in which she was the legendary Morrigan, goddess of death and war.
Garnet rejects the notion of magical incarnations altogether. But she falls in with Sorin, a handsome warlock who’s determined to protect the former bootlegger city of Riverpointe from a secret society of vampires. Haunted by crows and faced with undeniable proof of magic, Garnet scrambles to protect her career and loved ones from magical violence.
Abducted by vampires who seek to turn her into a vampire against her will, can Garnet seize the power of the legendary Morrigan to forge her own path in her embattled city? Or will she be forced to serve as a fearsome weapon in a deadly nocturnal war?
Nervous Nellie’s nervousness necessitates knowledge of the novel. In other words …SPOILERS. *BEWARE*
Nervous Nellie says…
Wow! This is going to be a primo series. This book has a lot of start up – world developing stuff going on, however, it’s not boring stuff. Author Bickle does an excellent job of developing the character that is Garnet Connors. She’s a normal everyday trauma surgeon (not that that is normal or everyday) minding her own business. She’s noticed crows her whole life and many of them have given her gifts. Not valuable gifts, just things that are shiny that the crows would like.
Then BAM!!! Garnet enters the world of the supernatural. Without warning, some scary stuff goes down. Attention gets brought unto her and now she’s noticed. Dang!
Garnet is as bewildered as any of us would be when greeted with this weird stuff. The only thing different is that she gets clues. She has dreams.
To be honest, I really thought I was super smart and had it all figured out about where the story was going. By the end, I closed the book (or shut my kindle off – because, well, closing a book is more final, ya know?) with a “WHOA!” I did not see that coming.
This did have a mild cliffhanger, but I wasn’t overly bothered by it so it wasn’t dramatic. It did allude to sex, there was swearing, there was violent death. It was incredible! Morrigan’s Bite comes out October 23, 2020. I am stoked! I give Morrigan’s Blood a 5.
Oh, and a side note to the author – THANKS FOR THE CAMEO OF SPARKY!! Love him!!
