Read New Blood (Blood Magic, #1) Online Free - In 1636, the last blood sorceress was burned at the stake. More than two hundred years later, her blood servant Jax has found her successor. Amanusa at first turns down the opportunity to learn what she perceives as an evil art. But she craves justice, and innocent blood cries out for justice.
When Amanusa looses magic on those who’ve harmed her, she must flee for her life across a devastated Europe with Jax, who is inescapably bound to her by blood and magic. Their journey takes them through zones where everything—including magic—has died, zones populated with strange creatures cobbled together of things left behind by the dead.
Needing each other for their very survival, Amanusa and Jax grow ever closer on their journey to discover answers – about magic, blood sorcery, the dead zones, and even love.

New Blood is my first steampunk. For those who don't know, steampunk is fiction involving an alternate vision of the Industrial Age (1800s), usually with more technology or, as in this case, the paranormal. Envision the 1800s if magic had been a fact of life. That's New Blood, perhaps the first s...

I have two main things to say about this book. First, this book was awesome and has landed Gail Dayton a solid spot on my AutoBuy list from now on. Second, it's not steampunk. Or, at least, it's not steampunk as in what I envision when I think of steampunk. To me, The League of Extraordinary Gent...

I am a fan of good paranormal romances. New Blood by Gail Dayton goes on my favorites shelf. Set in the 1800's where magic is common place New Blood follows Jax and Amanusa as they travel on a journey filled with danger and discovery. New Blood is a great start to a new paranormal series.

It was a little slow at first but got better as it went along. I wasn't crazy about the ending and I felt the big confession between the hero and heroine wasn't as big as I wanted to to be. However the world building and characters were fantastic and it was still really good despite my complaints...

Full review can be found here.
*Note that I read the second book in this series before I read this one.*
At first it was a little weird coming into this first book with prior knowledge of the world building. This soon passed, however, and I found myself fully immersed in the story. The setting, the...

A good start to, I’m hoping, a new series.
Jax has been looking endlessly for the previous blood sorceress’s successor, one who would unleash the knowledge Yvaine had stored in his mind, the magic in his body.
Amanusa lost her family at a very young age, was raped and beated repeatedly since, and h...

I can’t remember where I heard about this book, but it stuck in my head until I saw it at a traveling book shop, so I snagged it – especially after attending a steampunk panel and finding it on a list of steampunk books! The writing is both modern and period in that it is easy to read but also re...

It took me a lot of time to start reading this book thanks to the hideous cover. I know I shouldn't judge the book by its cover, but every time I thought of reading it, the colourful monstrosity made me change my mind. I mean, look at it!
First of all, I've decided to read this because it was labe...

The first chapters were lovely. Made me expect much more than was ultimately delivered.
I loved that the first description of the heroine is that she is strong.
Most sensual and arousing finger licking in the history of finger licking.
Also loved the fact that we see the character...
