This book was the vampire book I never knew I needed. I adored this!
'Wynter Blood' has all the elements of supernatural horror, romance and a substantial mix of intense battles and childhood traumas and their consequences. I found the book to have perfect pacing throughout, nothing was too rushed or a slow burn.
The narrative was so easy to follow, with multiple POVS, and don't get me started on the characters?!
I THINK I FELL IN LOVE. The characters always serve as the driving force in any story, and DM Lewry achieved this mastery perfectly. Each character had their own beliefs surrounding love, family, their morals and loyalty, which in turn made the novel that addictive, I couldn't put it down.
It's vital to bestow both strengths and weaknesses when birthing characters, and the author managed to convey this perfectly. I followed the internal conflict for Alia to search for her stability and confidence, and even more so her external fight for love and justice.
"Be wary of the dark ones that walk in the light, for they are the ones that will steal your heart."
The author fulfilled all the reader's needs with this book, the elements of forbidden love, and interracial romance. Absolute five star read for me, and I honestly can't wait for book two. The world building was incredible, and for her debut novel, I am seriously impressed.
