Witch’s Knight: The Bloodline Chronicles

The blurb

Sarai Reinhart is a witch in hiding. Having inherited rare dual gifts of healing and necromancy from her late Jewitch mother and cruel German father, she needs to be constantly on her guard to avoid those who would use her.

But even a skilled witch cannot run from everyone. After a mental breakdown sees her turn a mouse into a zombie, she is captured by an organization of witch hunters. To her great surprise, salvation arrives in the form of vampires and one vampire in particular: the beautiful and deadly Knight Commander Marcelle. Sarai is brought to the local vampire kingdom’s seat of power, a place no witch has seen and survived, and finds herself falling for her rescuer. Can she trust the vampire woman when Sarai’s blood holds secrets that could change the occult world forever?

My thoughts

The witch Sarai Reinhart has been endowed with special gifts. Having fled from her father’s cruel grip, she tries to live an unassuming life. But she’s captured by a group of witch hunters, the Vasi, whose goals are either to enslave or kill witches.

An unlikely heroine comes to her rescue, the beautiful, if deadly, Marcelle, the Knight Commander of the ruling vampire. Once inside the castle at the center of the power of the kingdom, she becomes their “guest.” She’s surprised to discover, though, she’s attracted to the Marcelle. But wait, there’s more, the king, wants to send her on a mission.

Evelyn Silver has created an imaginative story built on an amazing world where it’s hard to tell the good guys from the bad guys. The characterizations of Sarai and her rare gifts that seem to be at odds with each other give you a glimpse of the complexity of her life. Silver gives the reader a slow burn of a love story, fraught with the very relatable doubts Sarai has over her place in Marcelle’s heart. The author will have you turning the pages, waiting for the next twist in the plot. It’s at the end, though, she really zings you.

Silver’s skillful plotting and engaging storytelling grabs you from the beginning. A creative addition to the vampire genre, Witch’s Knight, leaves you impatiently waiting for the sequel.
