Blood Drop (The Warlock Brothers of Havenbridge #5) by Jacob Z. Flores

release day review

Dreamspinner Presents


A single drop of blood might hold the key to the fate of the magical world, and Aiden Teine must choose between his bond of love and embracing the power to defeat his enemies.

Aiden’s adjustment to being the first vampyre fae hasn’t been easy, but his ties to warlock Thad Blackmoor prevent him from becoming a monster. With Thad, Aiden has a new family, a new purpose, and a new reason to live—though he’s technically undead. There’s one problem: Aiden’s control over his vampyre is weakening. He must learn what’s triggering his violent reactions before he surrenders to the creature within. To complicate matters, Aiden discovers his transformation might not be complete, and he fears what he will become.

Aiden’s search for answers thrusts him into a frightening world filled with deception, new dangers, and apocalyptic visions. The part destiny intends Aiden to play could alter his relationship with Thad forever. If Aiden, Thad, and the entire magical community are to survive Icarian’s latest scheme, Aiden must interpret the meaning of the prophetic blood drop before it falls and ushers in the destruction of all creation—and the warlock he loves.


I think this book may have just jumped the line and became my favorite in the series! I absolutely adored book one and haven’t felt that strongly about the next two – though they are all realllllly good – but this one? Yeah – super awesome and amazing!

It literally has everything a great story needs. Super fantastic magical powers? Check. Super crazy villain? Check. Super romantic story? Check. Unbelievably tense action? Check. Stress and struggle that ends in a way that blew my mind? Check? A Happy Ending? Well…. Mostly check.  Cute nicknames… Your Highness… check!

Jacob clearly leaves the ending up for more stories to come – our boys have evolved quite a bit but there’s a lot of danger in the world so….

In any case – if you’re a fan of this series you will gobble this up! If you haven’t started the series – go do it – this isn’t a standalone. Though I’d call the series YA or NA – it doesn’t feel like that – it just has some younger characters.

Though it’s probably cliché – the ending was my favorite. The epic battle – the sacrifices – the epilogue – I totally cried like a baby.

Highly recommended to fans of the author, the series and to anyone who loves magic!
