The Blood Spell (Ravenspire #4) by C.J. Redwine

Blue de la Cour has her life planned: hide the magic in her blood and continue trying to turn metal into gold so she can help her city’s homeless. But when her father is murdered and a cruel but powerful woman claims custody of Blue and her property, one wrong move could expose her—and doom her once and for all. The only one who can help? The boy she’s loathed since childhood: Prince Kellan.

Kellan Renard, crown prince of Balavata, is walking a thin line between political success and devastating violence. Newly returned from boarding school, he must find a bride among the kingdom’s head families and announce his betrothal—but escalating tension among the families makes the search nearly impossible. He’s surprised to discover that the one person who makes him feel like he can breathe is Blue, the girl who once ruined all his best adventures.

When mysterious forces lead to disappearances throughout Balavata, Blue and Kellan must work together to find the truth. What they discover will lead them to the darkest reaches of the kingdom, and to the most painful moments of their pasts. When romance is forbidden and evil is rising, can Blue save those she loves, even if it costs her everything? 

Jan’s Review

Yeah, book four of this amazing series. This is a fantastic retelling of Cinderella and kept me enthralled for every single page. The cover is stunning and needs a prominent spot on my bookshelf. Blue is a loveable character and there are great moments of heartache for her but it Cinderella retelling so you know it gonna turn around with a pretty dress and fancy shoe.

C.J. Does a superb job of keeping all the details of the original story but like a good retelling, she adds her own unique twist to the story that makes it stand out in all its glory. This book does a fantastic job of having uniqueness to it such as racial diversity, a prominent character with a speaking disability and who uses sign language to communicate, and the addition of the twist with the blood wraith. All the books in the Ravenspire series have been fantastic and I excited to see what next.
