Hi all! Now that I’m part of the Evernight Teen family, I’m going to be doing the occasional post spotlighting the other young adult authors in the family. My very first Spotlight is for Erin Butler, the author of what looks to be a fabulous young adult novel releasing March 29, 2013 from Evernight Publishing: Blood Hex.
Two girls. Four centuries. One curse.
Isabella started it–all because a boy fell in love with her–but it ends with Sarah.
They meet in secret, Isabella and Thomas, during the witching hours while the rest of the villagers hide behind locked doors. And even though she’s scared, she wants Thomas more. He’ll protect her from the night, from his father who’ll decide her future, from the paranoia-fueled hunting parties taking away innocents.
Centuries later, seventeen-year old Sarah runs away to an aunt she never knew she had. Her dad? Dead. Her mother? A liar. All she wants is memories of a father she never got–memories her mom refused to give her–memories she is determined to get from her aunt, her father’s journal, and a town full of crazies.
What she discovers is her father’s death isn’t as innocent as everybody claims, and everyone–the Wiccans, the townies, even her quasi-boyfriend–all seem to be hiding something. The secret the history-rich town lives to keep entangles Sarah into a centuries old witch curse.
