Throwback Thursday #58 - Bloodring

This is a great feature that Melissa at My words and pictures has been doing for a while and I wanted to jump on board! There are plenty of books out there I desperately want...

But what about all those wonderful books that are ALREADY on my shelves?
Bloodring - Faith Hunter
 A near-future world caught in the throes of an ambiguous apocalypse - where a woman with everything to hide finds her true destiny revealed. As humanity struggles with religious strife and seraphs and demons fight a never-ending battle, a new species has arisen. "Neomages" are human in appearance, but able to twist left-over creation energy to their will. A threat to both humans and seraphs, they are confined in luxurious Enclaves. Thorn St. Croix is no ordinary neomage. Nearly driven insane by her powers, she is smuggled out of an Enclave and now lives among humans, channeling her gift of stone-magery into jewelry making. But when Thaddeus Bartholomew, a dangerously attractive policeman, tells her that her ex-husband has been kidnapped, Thorn risks revealing her identity to find him. And for Thorn, the punishment for revelation is death...
I was reminded that I had this book when Melissa chose it last month as the winner of What Shall I Read this month! I love Faith Hunters Jane Yellowrock UF series and this is set in a very different world, but one that sounds so very cool! 
What about you? What do you think about Angels? :-)


  1. I have to read that one one day too, book 1 that is..just need it first ;)

  2. I've been wanting to try her angel series. I have mixed feelings about them. It all depends on the world created!

  3. Oh I just got it in the mail today!! I wanted to send you an email to let you know but haven't got that far yet. I really want to read this one. :) Great pick!

  4. Mel, it's a really really good series! Please, do read it! :)
