Review: Descended by Blood by Angeline Kace

Title: Descended by Blood
Author: Angeline Kace
Source: Received from author in exchange for an honest review


Brooke Keller is a high school junior who has never spent much time living in one place. She is finally in a town long enough to almost snag the boy of her dreams, until her life is threatened after killing a fanged man in his attempt to kidnap her. Brooke begins a dangerous journey in an effort to find out who is after her and how to stop them. In a world with powerful and prejudiced vampires, Brooke must tap into the side of her that she never knew existed at the risk of losing her life in order to save it.


Descended by Blood is a young adult, paranormal romance. Brooke is a teen who has finally gotten the attention of her high school crush. Pretty quickly afterward though, things start to go downhill. First, someone attempts to kidnap her, she finds out that she's not exactly human and her mom has been keeping this a secret from her, and her new boyfriend is a little uncomfortable with these new developments.

It sucks when the person you are falling in love with has trouble accepting everything about you. This drives Brooke into the arms of another guy, resulting in the famous love triangle. These guys are the complete opposite of one another, but I liked them both. In the midst of trying to sort out her messy love life and accept this new part of herself, Brooke has to deal with the fact that her life is in danger.

Descended by Blood is a quick paced, action packed book. I did think that the relationships happened just a little quickly, and I didn't quite connect with the characters. The ending was pretty abrupt – it definitely ends with a cliffhanger. There's some mystery going on, and I think book #2 will be exciting. I recommend this book to teens and young adults, especially fans of Twilight and Vampire Academy.

Find this book at the following places:

Barnes & Noble
