Title: Blood Magic Series: Dragon Born Alexandria #2
Author: Ella Summers
Branded as an abomination, Dragon Born mage Alex Dering has spent her whole life hiding what she is—a secret her father died to protect. Eight years after his death, Alex finally gets the chance to track down the mage responsible.
But her vengeance is put on hold when she gets a lead in London on the Blood Orb, a magical artifact with the power to control vampires. Retrieving the orb from the hate group that holds it won’t be easy; thwarting their plan to exterminate every supernatural in the world will be even harder.
To make matters worse, a mysterious killer is stalking Alex’s every move, determined to end her life. To survive this, it will take all her magic, a lot of help from a dangerous ally, and a really big sword.
Blood Magic begins when Alex and her new assassin friend agree to help find the blood orb. The problem is this creates a whole new set of issues, and on top of that someone is gunning for Alex and no one knows who or why. Alex and her friends must figure out what's going on before it is too late.
I thought this book was a great sequel to the first one. It brought in a whole slew of new issues and it was more in depth of the relationship between Alex and her hero.
On top of that, it was also very fast paced and interesting and kept me guessing the whole time I was reading it.
