Awakening: Bloodline Book One
Tiera Rice
Publication date: October 12th 2016
Genres: Fantasy, New Adult, Paranormal

being royal comes with lots of expectations. Born into war as a Vampyre Witch, she has to battle the ultimate enemy: her own blood. When she has a terrifying Vision, Antanasia fights harder than ever to prevent it from coming to pass. Will she succeed? Or does she die trying?

Nadia is an average teenager celebrating her nineteenth birthday. But her day turns upside down when she starts developing unusual abilities that make her question everything she knew. Searching for answers to her predicament, she finds herself trusting Nicolae, a stranger with a familiar presence. Why does she feel so drawn to him? Will Nadia find answers to the questions about her past and take on her new role willingly? Or will she choose to remain in the dark and deny her destiny?

My Review:

Strange things are happening to Nadia who lives in New York, 2015. She is starting to have blackouts and not remembering what she did or how she ended up in the places where she wakes up. Nadia starts having some strange cravings ones that she wants no part of but eventually has no choice when her body takes over and she has one of her blackouts. Nadia tries to hide a lot of what is going from her friends but she does try to get her mother to explain to her what is happening to her but her mom is reluctant to tell her anything. Nadia starts to have vision/nightmares that are very frightening and ones that she doesn’t understand.

In 1480 Wallachia Antanasia is a Vampyre Witch that was born into war and has to fight her own kind; her own blood. Antanasia has a vision that she hopes to keep from coming true. Antanasia loves her mother and her boyfriend both very much and will do whatever it takes to keep them both alive. Will she succeed or will she end up losing one of them? Can she save them both? Will one of them die? What will happen to Antanasia and her people? Will they survive the war? Or will Antanasia die trying to keep her vision from coming true?

While I saw the ending coming I didn’t picture it quite the way it unfolded. Awakening: Bloodline is filled with lots of intriguing and suspenseful adventure. A story of two young women who take you on more than one journey and leave you wanting more.  I highly recommend Awakening: Bloodline to anyone who loves a good vampire novel.
