When one of the world's most gifted witches becomes a vampire, you'd be wise to heed this advice: Don't f*** with her.

I’m supposed to seduce and assassinate the vampire king…

He’s defied the new vampire council.

The Voodoo Queen has evoked Erzulie, the Loa of Love, to render him susceptible to my allure

Once I’ve enthralled the king my orders are to stake him and cast a spell to harness the power that lingers in his blood.

But there’s one problem…

He has enthralled me instead.


I'm Hailey Bradbury: Hedge Witch and Vampire.

My sire was staked moments after I was turned.

As a youngling, the Voodoo Queen took me in. She taught me her art.

I've been working with the new Mistress of the Vampire Council.

She trained me in the ways of vampirism, the path of the night.

Witchcraft + Voodoo + Vampirism = what I call bloodwitchery.

Most witches won't mess with the power latent in blood.

It's dark. It's dangerous. But if you can master it...

You can harness the power of life itself.

Voodoo and Vampires is the first volume in Theophilus Monroe’s expansive Blood Witch Saga. Hailey Bradbury was only sixteen when she was turned seven years ago. She might be a young vampire—but she’s an accomplished badass witch. After all, only the most daring of witches dabble in blood magic.

Readers of Monroe’s Legacy of a Vampire Witch, Voodoo Academy series, or The Legend of Nyx, have encountered Hailey before. Now, she has come into her own. She may be a member of the Vampire council. Her mentor might be the Voodoo Queen. But no one tells this blood witch what to do. Voodoo and Vampires is an action packed Urban Fantasy with a heavy dose of closed-door Paranormal Romance.

My Review:

At the age of fourteen, Hailey Bradbury found her family's grimoire in her grandmother’s attic. At the age of sixteen Hailey was bitten in the street by a vampire. Now she is a Hedge Witch and a Vampire hybrid.

Inside the grimoire, she found a letter from an ancestor, Moll Dwyer. Hailey learned a lot about being a witch from Moll Dwyer in the grimoire.

Moll tells Hailey about a spell that she needs to help stop a very powerful vampire. Hailey needs a cauldron if she is going to brew up this spell. She also needs to find herself a coven to join. She kills two birds with one stone so to speak she finds a coven that will loan her a cauldron.

Hailey meets some new friends in this coven that she is able to learn a lot more about being a witch. They also teach her about the Vampire King. Hailey must seduce him so she can assassinate him and stop him from harming humans. And to find out what his plans for vampires happen to be.

The Vampire King is a very powerful vampire but so is Hailey. But the question is, is she strong enough to take him on and stop him? But you know strength does not always prevail, right? Sometimes it takes more than strength to win, right?

I sorely enjoyed reading Voodoo and Vampires. I loved the person that Hailey is. I loved seeing Hailey and Connor together. I loved the fun banter between them. I loved how they cut up with each other always making a joke. I could just see how happy they were when they were together.

I have not read any of the books with Hailey in them as of yet but I sure wish I had as I would love to know more about Hailey and this world that Theophilus Monroe has created with vampires and witches. I can’t wait to read more from this world.

Voodoo and Vampires was an amazing read that kept me glued to my seat and not able to flip the pages as fast as I wanted. I couldn’t get enough of the vampires, witches, and wolves. Voodoo and Vampires pulled me in with the first page and once it did I was lost between its page for the duration with all the tension and suspense that filled each and every page.

I would recommend Voodoo and Vampires to all vampires and witches fans! One-click your copy of Voodoo and Vampires today!
