13 Drops of Blood Kindle Edition
Love candle in hand, she visualises Enzo, walking toward her, his body strong and lithe, rather than broken and bloody as she’d last seen him. Having already asked forgiveness for what she’d done, the imagined look on his face was one of love and acceptance. Harnessing that love, she wrapped both hands around the candle and placed it into a lovely wrought iron pentagram holder. Once she evoked the necessary protection for her spell, she glanced at the grimoire again, hoping her Gaelic was up to the task, hoping she was up to the task. She slid the blade of her athame across the palm of her hand, held it over her mirror, and recited the chant. A dark orb rose…then another…and another… Izzy’s gaze flew to the grimoire, landing on a single phrase. A drop of blood—she glanced at the mirror, counted the drops…eleven…twelve… She jerked her hand away as the last drop plopped on the surface…thirteen… She leapt to her feet and spun around to find Enzo, and twelve other figures – there, but not there. Transparent. Feet not quite touching the floor. And looking pissed as hell. Thirteen authors tell dark, disturbing, and creepy tales of thirteen apparitions bent on revenge from love gone wrong.

While attending a Live Launch Party, online, for this book, I entered a drawing to receive a free signed copy from the coordinator of the project, Jodi Jensen. I want to extend my thanks to her for it.
I know first hand how (easy or difficult) these collaborative efforts can go and I feel like every author in here deserves a mention of some sort. They all, in my opinion deserve a round of applause. So for each chapter, I am going to include a line or two from their part. A little teaser or enticement to encourage you to purchase your copy.
Prologue by Jodi Jensen: Izobel Gowdie, a witch, performs a spell to bring back a loved one from the dead. “Her heart leapt into her throat as the orbs kept coming. Her gaze flew to the grimoire, landing on a single phrase. A drop of blood…”
Issa, by S.N Graves: “Some kind of magic. Don’t know. I’m dead, not a witch. You murdered me, not sent me to Hogwarts.”
Cedric by J.W. Garrett: “Piper wouldn't do this to him. She wasn't a murderer. She wouldn't follow through. Would she?”
Sarah by Kimberly Rei: “A sneeze sent him nearly running to the corner store for cough medicine, decongestant, and a mystery by the inimitable David Green.”
Jezzelle by M. Sydnor Jr: “With both hands he rubbed the box, tapped his leg, and looked at the beautiful woman he wanted to spend the rest of his life with.”
Caleb by Chris Bannor: “What the hell is that? Caleb asked , even as he stood between Aiden and the thing forming in front of them."
Amanda by Crystal L. Kirkham: “I knew there’d be consequences, but this was a horribly cruel turn of events and it was all my fault.”
Silas by K.T. Tate: “But it seems I am powerless here, trapped behind glass.”
Meera by D.J. Elton: “Fair or foul. I do not care.He must apologise to me and acknowledge what he did.”
Red by Nicole Little: “What on earth was she doing here in the middle of the forest, in the middle of the night?”
Gillian by Maxine Churchman: “He has never kissed me like that, and I feel empty and betrayed.”
Ava by Beth W. Patterson: “Could Ava rise above the anger encoded in her genetics, breaking a toxic chain that had spanned millenia?”
Muse by Jasmine Jarvis: “She looked at me for a moment, making me feel uncomfortable--I was convinced she was reading my thoughts.”
Enzo by Jodi Jensen: “Izzy screamed, fighting to block memories gifted to her by the darkest of dark magic.”
I absolutely loved the entire concept of this story. I enjoyed the way each chapter could stand alone as its own short story, but also was weaved together for a bigger picture. I highly recommend this book.
There’s a good amount of blood and gore, as the dead take justice into their own hands, but it’s not just for shock value. There’s an emotional core of loss and redemption that brings depth to the characters. It’s an interesting concept that is well executed, and overall, it’s a great read.
I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
