“This is storytelling at its best.” – WENDY HIGGINS, NYTimes bestselling author of Sweet Evil
NO REST FOR THE WICKED . . . OR THE CURSED.
I didn’t mean to steal the Bloodstone from the De Morel’s crypt.
Scratch that, I did mean to steal it.
Until I realized it was a curse-magnet that only comes off if I, along with a jolly trio, successfully defeat four curses.
If any of us fail, I’m dead.
I’ve never been a glass half-empty sort of person, but my glass looks in dire need of a refill right about now.
The only highlight of this wicked treasure hunt: feisty, entitled Cadence de Morel.
I was raised on tales of magic, in a small town reputed to be the birthplace of French witchcraft.
Did I believe all the stories I heard? Absolutely not. I mean, if magic existed, Maman wouldn’t have died, and Papa wouldn’t be stuck in a wheelchair, right?
The night Slate Ardoin waltzes into my life, wearing a ring he stole from my mother’s grave, I call him a monster.
But then I meet real ones, and Slate, well . . . he becomes something else to me.
Something frustrating to live with but impossible to live without.
Something I will fight for, no matter the cost.
*Warning: profuse cursing (and not just the magical kind).
*Intended for readers 16 and up.
I’m torn between the desire to strangle him and kiss him. “We should go. Adrien’s waiting.”
“He’s fine.” He finally stops rubbing his chest. “He can wait.” He lays his hand on my jaw, tilts it up.
My heartbeats are so loud and close together that they’re probably making all six layers of my clothing vibrate.
The tip of his nose touches the tip of mine, and his breath warms my parted lips. The only boy I’ve ever kissed is Romain, and those kisses were always friendly and sweet. I don’t think kissing Slate will be friendly or sweet. I lick my lips in anticipation.
“Can’t wait for our date.” He pulls back, releases my head but finds my hand in the folds of his coat, and tows me downstairs.
Yep. I’m going to strangle him.
Probably while kissing him.
About the Authors
USA TODAY bestselling author Olivia Wildenstein grew up in New York City, the daughter of a French father with a great sense of humor, and a Swedish mother whom she speaks to at least three times a day. She chose Brown University to complete her undergraduate studies and earned a bachelor’s in comparative literature. After designing jewelry for a few years, Wildenstein traded in her tools for a laptop computer and a very comfortable chair. This line of work made more sense, considering her college degree.
Katie Hayoz grew up in Racine, Wisconsin where she acquired an irreversible nasal twang and an addiction for books with a slightly dark edge. She now lives in Geneva, Switzerland with her husband, two daughters, and a very fuzzy cat. She has been an avid reader of YA fiction for years. While she has a penchant for the paranormal, she devours a range of books – along with popcorn and black licorice. She consumes all three in large quantities. Luckily, the books don’t stay on her hips.

I loved Of Wicked Blood by Olivia Wildenstein and Katie Hayoz. It was an exciting, fun and sweet adventure of a read. There was magic, curses, danger, suspense, secrets, romance, friendship and a bit of heart-break as well.
This book had everything you would want to have in a mature young adult urban fantasy with some frenemies-to-lovers romance. A perfectly mysterious and creepy atmosphere, intriguing and entertaining story with action, humour and swoon, flawed characters, innocent and sweet but at the same time intense and angsty romance. I enjoyed the dynamic between Candence and Slate. Also I appreciated that there wasn’t too much drama.
And that ending… Such a cliffhanger that wasn’t really a cliffhanger, so I’m very curious about what is going to happen next, but at the same time I feel like the first part of the story was nicely completed. Can’t wait to read Of Tainted Heart next.
