Publisher's Summary

See the girl. Leah Wilde is 24, a runaway on a black motorbike, hunting for answers while changing her identity with each new Central European town.

See the man, having come of age in extraordinary suffering and tragedy in 19th-century Budapest; witness to horror, to love, to death, and the wrath of a true monster. Izsák still lives in the present day, impossibly middle-aged. He's driven not only to hunt this immortal evil but to find his daughter, stolen from an Arctic cabin and grown into the thing Izsák has sworn to kill.

See the monster, a beautiful, seemingly young woman who stalks the American West, seeking the young and the strong to feed upon, desperate to return to Europe where her coven calls.

Written in the Blood is the epic thriller of the year, a blazing and dexterous saga spanning generations and threading the lives of five individuals driven by love, by sacrifice, by hunger, and by fear. They seek to save a race - or to extinguish it forever.

Absolutely loved it

I enjoyed the string diaries more but I’m super glad the author decided to continue the story.
The ending was not what I had hoped for. I really wanted more of Izsák, my man deserved a happy ending y’all! I was annoyed about the fact that the dad chose not to kill Jakab knowing damn well that In allowing him to live, he was condemning his other two children. I mean yeah Jakab is also his kid but come on! He’s a rapist! The other two were innocent yet they paid with their lives for the wrongdoings of Jakab and mistake of their father. But just because I didn’t like the ending doesn’t mean that the story wasn’t good, because it totally was.
In terms of Performance, Gemma did an amazing job! the emotions she portrayed when narrating… well let’s just say that now I’m obsessed with her voice!
