True of Blood: Witch Fairy Series, Book 1 | [Bonnie Lamer]

True of Blood: Witch Fairy Series, Book 1

"I have a television so I know what a family is supposed to look like but mine is nothing like that. To begin with, both my parents are dead. Not the kind of dead where you bury them in the ground, say some nice words, cry a lot and then never see them again. Nope, when they died they refused to ‘go into the light’ or whatever it is you’re supposed to do when you die. Instead, they came back home. As ghosts. Have you ever been sent to your room by a parent who has no corporeal form? I have and it sucks..."

Xandra Illuminata Smith has lived for the last three years with ghosts as parents but her life gets even stranger after her seventeenth birthday when she finds out that her mother is actually a Witch in hiding and her biological father, whom she knew nothing about, is a Fairy and King of the Fae realm.

Xandra is the first Witch Fairy to be born in thousands of years for very good reason. No one should be able to control that much magic and Xandra was never meant to be born at all but her mother has managed to keep her hidden away until now.

The Witches want her dead and the Fairies want her blood, for only her blood will reopen the gateway to the Fae realm and allow them back into this realm to take revenge on humans and Witches alike for having banished them hundreds of years ago.

Xandra has very little time to learn how to use her powerful Witch and Fairy magic that has been bound since her birth while running from the Fairies who managed to jump realms and want to take her blood to set the others free. She needs someone to teach her and her parents enlist the help of one powerful Fairy who claims to want to keep the realms closed to each other. He will help keep her safe and alive as she learns, at least that's what he says...

    Totally addicted! It's possible I might need Audible rehab.

    "More romance than anything else."

    Great performance from Emily Durante as usual. This story wasn't listed as a romance, if it had been I wouldn't have chosen it.

    "Just not believable. Too contrived"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No. It was too contrived. I love fantasy but the situations were too contrived and the Xandra is just not believable as a person. She is too spoiled and dumb. Plus I am so tired of the story line that parents forget or never get around to telling their child they are a world changer and some group is out to kill them. If any such parents leave their child so unprepared then they deserve the death that always happens to them in these stories.


    What three words best describe Emily Durante’s performance?

    She performed well. She had a good voice and was entertaining but the story was not good.


    Did True of Blood inspire you to do anything?

    Try to avoid similar works.
