The title is all about Luca, for he is Blood Born. Toggle navigation. Save her from what, we don't know. But Ava doesn't want to be a vampire so Aldric offers her a deal, kill vampires and she can become human again. This deal is a bit confusing to me, especially when her first vampire kill was really killed by Chance, she was there fighting it, but didn't make the killing blow that led to its death and yet it still counts as 1 kill.
Plus, the whole reversal process of going from vampire to human always confuses me because I don't see how it's possible. But it has been done, so we'll just have to wait and see how Jamie does it. A few other things that kind of nagged at me, was this constant feeling that Chance was someone from Ava's past. Like they knew one another, but yet again, this never really gets answered to my fulfillment. There was one brief answer, but I didn't feel like it really answered my question of who Chance was to Ava and not just who he is in general.
The other nagging part was something minor and that was how Chance's mother never really questioned why Ava--this teenage girl her son barely knows or maybe not? And Ava is still in high school, she gets enrolled at Chance's school and basically Chance becomes her friend of sorts or a guidance counselor Ava also meets other teen vampire hunters and sort of becomes friends with them.
They teach her how to kill vampires since she's going to be needing that bit of info for her task.

She makes friends among them and even a frenemy too. The ending was pretty surprising, yet as the events were happening I sort of foresaw this last event happening. There was a good deal of action in the end as well with a good old fashion brawl among vampires and vampire hunters, plus two vampires--Ava and Aldric. Overall it was an interesting read. There were a few grammar errors and another placement error of sorts, but it was an enjoyable novel.
Yet, I can't help but feeling let down in some ways, as I felt there was so much building up--especially with Ava and Chance and the feeling that I got that there was definitely something more going on between them than what we saw--and yet nothing was answered or resolved. True, this is only the first book in the trilogy and I can only hope that the second one will have some answers for me. I just read what it was about and it does look intriguing as news problem are being added to Ava's plate. So eventually that one will have to make it to my reading queue as well!
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase. I tried to like this book It could have been really good if it had answered some questions that badly needed answering. The characters were first rate I was disappointed in this one Format: Kindle Edition.
Born of Blood
Disclaimer: I met this author once, and was intrigued by the story. He did not ask me to review but I thought I would. Brief overview: Ava wakes up in a coffin and finds out she is vampire--half vampire. With the help of an enigmatic boy she learns to deal with her condition.
Along the way she makes friends and enemies The biggest thing I liked--was the potential of this writer and story.
I liked how fast it read. I gave it a four star--because I can tell this will be a writer to watch. As a YA, I felt the language and the story fit well. There are some great descriptions and characterization. I fully expect good things from this writer.
But there are glitches. I tried not to let that affect how I reviewed the story. I am numbering them: 1. This is not the authors fault so I didn't rate this accordingly , but I bought this book on nook and the formatting was terrible. There were gaps in sentences, there were whole blank pages and adjusting the font size didn't help. It made it awkward and frustrating to read. I really hope the publisher has corrected this because it drove me nuts and it is one of the reasons it took me so long to finish this book. Squibs are able to use magical devices, such as magic detectors, or other items whose magical capabilities are inherent, but not devices such as wands, which require magical abilities in the user.
Muggle-borns are possibly descended from Squibs who married into Muggle families [ citation needed ] as in historic times went by the affectionate name of 'Magbobs' as the magic 'bobbed up' out of nowhere . It is possible that a child or later descendant of Hector Dagworth-Granger , a famous potioneer, was a Squib, because Horace Slughorn stated to Hermione Granger that the two could have been related.
This could be possible if magic in a family dies out. Half-breeds are humans with at least one non-human parent, although witches and wizards with non-human ancestry further back would also be considered half-breeds. They are very rare and have traits of both species, such as the ability to use magic and spell resistance in half- giants. Prejudice against half-breeds appears to be relatively common in the wizarding world, which is intolerant toward non-human peoples in general.
It is known to be highly offensive to centaurs , though this may only be because it is in fact, incorrect: centaurs are their own non-human breed, rather than a mix of species.
