I enjoyed Blood Magic and thought it was a decent addition to the Paranormal/Fantasy genre. I haven't read that many books about witches (excluding Harry Potter, of course), so I was intrigued by Blood Magic. Blood Magic was different in that you needed blood to complete any spells, which is a little gruesome but plays into the atmosphere well. The plot was very suspenseful even though it wasn't too hard to guess who the villain was. I thought that Silla was a resilient character because she was able to keep going after her parents died and didn't completely break down. Nick was an okay character; even though part of the book is his point-of-view, I still don't feel like I know that much about him. I'm starting to think that the love-at-first-sight thing is getting overdone, which is what happened in Blood Magic. Silla and Nick have an "instant attraction" but I don't think it was as well-written as it could have been. Besides that, I liked Blood Magic and look forward to the sequel.
