The Blood Prophecy: The Fated Three

Oh, you know I love me some teen paranormal romance, right? So obviously when I was contacted by Apostrophe Books I had to jump on this. I had to. So glad I did.

The Blood Prophecy: The Fated Three- TL Spencer
Blood Prophecy: The Fated Three
The darkness is rising. Thousands of years ago, a prophecy was foretold and now it has awakened…
17-year-old Selene Giovanni loses her father at a young age and is forever separated from her peers by the experience and an abusive mother.

When a young stranger, Gregori, starts at her school, Selene’s world changes dramatically. Her once dull and lonely life becomes exciting and dangerous.

With vampires and werewolves around every corner, Selene must make a choice between love, death and the fate of the world. And that is only the beginning…

Basically there are three novellas in this one book. Each novella focuses on a couple, but more specifically one of the three enchantresses. Selene and Gregori are first, then Sariel and Aynia, and then finally Dmitri and LaLinn. Each girl has a back story and there is a reason Selene is first- she's kind of the ring leader of the three. 

I absolutely loved this. It totals out at 300 pages on my Nook so I got through this really quickly- it's a rather fast read. Each couple has it's own love story with important lesson for successful relationship/personal struggle to get through. My favorite is probably Selene and Gregori though. Aynia was alright, I liked her a lot and totally understood why she's kind of angsty. LaLinn, though? Could NOT stand her. What a freaking whiner. Her parents are killed as a young child so she bounces from foster homes and eventually settles on a great couple who adopt her. But she's kind of a selfish person and really doesn't think about how her actions effect others, especially Dmitri. I was really sad for him because he basically know she won't ever love him like he loves her. That's kind of shit and depressing. It's like she's shacking up with him out of pity and survival. I still don't know if she really gets the whole soul mate/true love thing like the other couples did. 

But I will say if you like paranormal? You'll love this one. It's got vampires, shifters and different personal oddities like psychic behavior, healing, etc. So it's a little bit of everything rolled into one. I loved how there is enough action to keep you going but not so much where you are left completely confused and wondering what the heck is going on. Some of the language and conversation pieces are written a little odd but in hindsight it's because the male characters are vampires and really old. Obviously their speech would be different from a modern day person. 

Overall? Liked this book a lot. I think you'll really like it too especially if you are looking for fast reads that are enjoyable without feeling like you're having to really think about it. Go HERE to get more information and purchase the book.

There are more and more books only available on ebook. My daughter would love this. I may have to see about getting her an ereader. She prefers books, but I might have to get her one anyway.

Sounds intriguing! I like the sound of a pararnormal read that mixes different aspects, from werewolves to vampires to healers and more.

Three novellas in one makes it a bit different too, which is cool.

Sounds like a good book! I have been lax in reading posts. Went back to your previous and have comments.
1 - Sonic things don't work. Try D-Con if there is a place you can put it where the cats absolutely can't get into it.
2 - Matt needs a time-out.
3 - See above.
5 - I too have bizarre love for art and office supplies.
6 - Maggie (our dog) was spayed and began humping her dog bed. WTF! Yuk! I'd rather watch porn.
