Blood Omen 1

The Blurb:

How would you feel if you learned that your blood could bring about the next war that would damn or save Mankind?

And what if you knew that just seven people were all that stood between you and death?

And if those seven people were vampires?

Vampires exist and Dea, unlike most people, can see them. The vampire world is divided: there are the Ko-eks, defenders of a continued peaceful co-existence with humans, and the Apophi who want to end the age of human domination; to claim the daylight and to take control of a world they see as rightfully theirs. A war is brewing between the two factions; a war Dea’s blood is prophesized to start.

Seventeen year old Dea must fight to survive in a world where even the hunters are hunted and where she is the prize. Dependent on a Coven of deadly but beautiful blood-drinkers, she begins to unravel the mystery of her past. At all costs, they must keep her out of Apophi hands. The future of the world depends on it.

Set in and around modern-day London, Blood Omen Book I: The Vampire Wars follows Dea through an exciting four weeks of twists, turns, heartbreak, horror and surprises.

Let the darkness draw you in…


Have you had your fill of vampires yet?  Probably not, if you’re like me.  There is something about the dark edginess which draws me in to the tale time and time again.

With this series, there is plenty of that, but I should warn you that this is a hugely frustrating book, not least because it is the first in the series, so of course, there is the obligatory cliffhanger.

But more than that, it is the lack of answers and Dea’s behaviour that had me grumbling at my kindle at points.

This is, without doubt, an intriguing start to the series, with a tantalising hint of relationship potential.  I look forward to reading book 2.

I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.

About the author

My name is Katie Ruth Davies. I’m British but I live in the Republic of Georgia. I’m the Editor-in-Chief of the country’s leading English language newspaper Georgia Today. I have written four books of a YA book saga in the vampire genre and am finishing up the last book of the series and working on a YA book about angels and demons, set in Georgia.

My saga- Blood Omen- has been taken on by the top publisher in the country. The first two books were published and proved very successful among the teen community. The first print run sold out within nine months despite very little marketing. I am regularly invited by my fans to visit their schools to present my work and in the year and a half since the first book came out, I’ve done 12 book presentations.
