For fans of C.C. Wood’s Bitten series, discover how it all began…
In a mythical land not of this time or place, two lovers are drawn together. Alaunus and Aveta. Their destinies flow through their veins, borne in their very blood.
Lost in the discovery of newfound passion, neither of them sees the evil that stalks their every move…until it’s too late.
As Alaunus lies upon his deathbed, Aveta seeks help from the god and goddess, willing to conjure a dangerous power to save his life. Through love and desperation, she creates a new magic that will affect the future of her world ¬— and ours.
C.C. Wood had us under her book spell. Destined by Blood was the first book we have read of hers and were blown away. The story of Aveta and Alaunus was bewitching. We were right there with Finn and Kerry and their journey to witnessing the creation of the first vampire. Aveta and Alaunus’ love story was so amazing to read about. They were one in mind, body, and soul. Aveta was a widow, outcast, and a witch. She had been shunned by everyone in her village, except by Alaunus. He was son of the chieftain and was favored to be the leader of the villagers. His father had always planned to have him marry an “innocent” woman named Rhiannon, but Aveta had his heart. Alaunus and Aveta loved each other to the end of the world and back, and would do anything for each other. They would be tested day after day to see how strong their love truly was. How far would they go to make sure their love lasted? Could they continue to love each other no matter what? This book was one of the most captivating books we have read. Destined by Blood was tempting, unique, and so enchanting. We read the book in less than 3 hours. Yes, it is just that charming. We are going to have to read every book in the Bitten Origins series. Destined by Blood was the best paranormal romance we have read this year.
