What if the people who raised you had been lying to you for your entire life? What if everything you believed, everything you were, was nothing more than someone trying to manipulate you for their own ends? In Bloodwitch by Amelia Atwater-Rhodes, that’s the question that Vance Ehecatl has to face.
Vance is a quetzal, a shapeshifter who can take the form of a bird. Abandoned by his own people, Vance has been raised by the vampire rulers of the powerful Midnight Empire. His sheltered life is interrupted by Malachi Obsidian, who tells Vance he’s a bloodwitch, a powerful magic user, and that the vampires have been lying to him all his life to make him their tool.
Vance struggles to discover his identity and figure out who he can trust in this compelling fantasy tale. It’s the first of a new trilogy, but if you enjoy it you can follow the ongoing “Lilith’s Explorations of Midnight” tale that the author posts on her Facebook page
