An ancient magic. A secret garden. A deadly curse.
Haunted by her father’s unsolved murder, all sixteen-year-old Sophie wants is to keep a low profile. Instead, there’s a dangerous magic stirring in her veins… and she has no idea how to stop it.
After she accidentally puts her mother in a coma, Sophie is forced to move in with the elusive Delville family, whose historic French manor holds secrets even darker than hers. Their son, Gauthier, is dying from a mysterious illness, while deep in the abandoned garden, old ghosts are stirring.
As she struggles to control her powers, Sophie learns that she is Gauthier’s last hope. But when new evidence about her father’s death threatens to shatter their growing bond, she faces the ultimate dilemma: get revenge or save the boy she’s falling for…
…that is, if her blood doesn’t kill them both first.
BLOODLENDER is the first installment in the Bloodlender Trilogy, a young adult fantasy series that blends magic, mystery and suspense.
Coming 1 February 2023! (at the latest)
The Delville curse is broken and the Old Gods have granted Sophie temporary control over her powers. In return, she honor the bargain she made with them or forfeit her life. She could definitely use some help, but the Delvilles have sold their house, and now Gauthier isn’t returning her calls.
When fresh trouble arises in Vichy, Sophie runs away to Switzerland and the grandmother she’s never met. There, she joins the Vessel, an organisation of Bloodlenders dealing with a crisis of its own. Several young Bloodlenders have disappeared, and rumours are circulating of a fate worse than death.
As her new friends vanish one by one, Sophie must face her fears and venture into the heart of danger, where the answers she seeks lie in wait. But the truth isn’t always pleasant … and her past is fast catching up.
