Blood Entwines by Caroline Healy

A dark compelling story of love and its more sinister elements…possession.

 In the aftermath of a blood transfusion that saved her life, Kara feels different. Her senses are stronger ... she can hear whispered comments not meant for her ears ... she can hear the person following her.

When Jack, her stalker, reveals himself and insists that Kara has something that belongs to him, she does her best to avoid him. But he’s determined to talk to her, convinced that they’re linked through the blood she received during her transfusion.

Jack is struggling against a dark and dangerous demon. His body is host to the evil power that wants Kara’s blood and will stop at nothing to get it. If Jack is able to gain control he can warn Kara. But which is stronger, the power of the blood they share or the force for evil. How can Kara help save Jack without risking her own life?

 Disclaimer: I received an ecopy of this book in exchange for an honest review, as follows.

I'm not quite sure what  I expected with this book. The beautiful thing about ebooks and blog tours is that I read the blurb, get a glimpse of the cover, decide whether or not I want to try and read this book, sign up, and then I promptly forget what the book was about when it comes time to read it.  I know, I know, you are asking yourself why this is a beautiful thing! When it opens on my kindle, it opens to Chapter One and I get to dive in. So I have no true expectations of the novel and am just ready for the story.

And what a story this one was. The first chapter flashes from character to character and gives you the impression of overlapping chaos. I wasn't quite sure what to make of that at first, but it was intriguing so I read on.  And it was a delightful surprise.

With tension and suspense, a budding romance, mean girls, and learning about one's self, this book touches on it all. I wish the book were longer, a little more in depth to each of those, show more of the relationship between Kara & her stepmother, Kara & Hannah, Kara & Ben, etc. I just wanted a little more of everything, a little more depth, but as this book stands now and how it's written, it is an enjoyable read that will have you thinking the great "what if?..."
