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?


3 Reasons You Should Read…

The Blood Spell by C.J. Redwine


  • We weren’t sure it could happen, but we’re pretty sure this just became our favorite in the Ravenspire Series. They just seem to get better and better, and we are more than okay with that.


  • This one gave us glimpses and updates on some of our favs from past books. It gave us some magical and some creepy (in the best way!) elements. And it gave us Blue and Kellen who were everything we wanted and more.


  • If you love retellings that pay homage to the original while giving you something fresh, look no further. Grab all the books in this series and then bow down to C.J. Redwine’s greatness. This book once again proved why everyone should read everything she writes.
