I’ve been living with this burden for years, but my secret has finally been revealed and I feel like I can breathe again. I’ve wanted to ask—to beg—for help, but the spell that’s held me captive wouldn’t allow it. With it out in the open, I’m more determined than ever to break the seal from my chest so I can truly be free.
But what if my seal has something to do with one of the most feared prophecies of the millennium?
“A broken seal breaks the fragile hold…”
What does that mean? How am I connected? And why do I find myself so deeply drawn to Julius when I know my viramore, my soulmate, is out there somewhere? It’s not fair to either of us for me to lead Jules on, but it seems that my vampire companion is fierce in his determination to help me.

The Witch’s Blood
Julius is a vampire, and Emrys is a witch. Their species aren’t friends; they normally have nothing in common, but Julius and Emrys met when they both needed someone in their life. They didn’t expect to discover that they are more to each other than what they thought.
The Witch’s blood is book 3 in the Ellwood Chronicles. This series gets better and better with each book.
Emrys is a witch, a death witch. He’s one of the most powerful witches just behind Ailin. Emrys was part of the Ellwood coven until Ailin kicks him out when he thought that Em betrayed them.
Emrys wasn’t a traitor. He was captured, tortured and bounded by a seal never to be able to explain the truth, and no one believed him when he claims his innocence, no one except Julius.
Julius is a vampire, the leader of his coven. He also helps the police to control human memories when they’ve witnessed a supernatural attack.
Julius is a tortured man with a painful and traumatic past. He’s used to being alone until he met Em who fulfills a void in his life that Julius ignored.
I adored these two men. They are beautiful with a powerful love and faith between them. They’re both traumatized by their past, and they’re both scared to be abandoned, alone without no one to love or to be loved, but together, they’re invincible. They never doubt each other. They never give up on each other. Julius trusted Emrys with his life, and he believed him from the beginning, even if he couldn’t know the depth of what Emrys has been through.
Em trusted Julius with his life, mind, and will. He refuses to see Julius as just a vampire or a monster. He only sees a man, his man. Their love is powerful and breathtaking.
I adored this book, and it’s probably my favorite in the series. The plot was captivating and interesting. It was well-written, funny, dynamic with some dark moments. The characters were awesome, the story was well-built, and the feelings were well-described. I felt them; I felt their fears and love. It was brilliant.
I was happy to have the Ellwood Clan in the background with some chapters from Ailin or Sebastian’s POV. I loved them too.
I’m torn right now. In one hand, I want to read the next book like now, on another hand, I don’t want to read it because I know it will be the last in this series. That’s a cruel dilemma. This series is soooo good and brilliantly written that I want to know the end without ending it.
It’s 5 stars (and mooooore) for the Vampire and his Witch
