A unique, imaginative mystery full of magic-wielding and dark elements, Bloodstone is a riveting adventure for anyone interested in fantasy, mythology or the world of the paranormal.
One of the recent reviews for the book
I have just finished it and what an absolutely brilliant read. I love the way this book is written: the lovely descriptive writing that makes you feel different emotions along a journey of a dark stranger, a group of friends, a girl in a mirror and family disruption. There are different elements like bullying and self harm although not graphic detail xx All are entwined with a magical paint set, Crystal stones and a key that unlocks the past. This is one ROLLERCOASTER journey for Amelina xx this book is an easy from me and to be honest would make a great film xx Marjorie I’m so looking forward to book 2 xx
