*Review* Blood Tree (Part One) by Scarlett Dawn

Where there is dark, there is light.
The two halves make a whole…
Or do they constantly battle for dominance?

Kenna Julius is your average teenage girl. She has a bossy mom, a new boyfriend in school, and she never dreams of enchanted lands or fairytale castles.

She lives in the real world.

Or so she thought.

One fender bender sends Kenna traipsing through the woods and following her mom’s crazy directions. But when she falls into another realm where men play flutes under the full moon and magical powers crackle the air, her perception of fantasy becomes her reality. The hot guy she meets doesn’t help matters either when he claims she’s his.

Or does Kenna actually belong to another?
Someone much more…dark?

*This is a 20,000 word novella*

I received a copy of this story for an honest review.
Here are five reasons I absolutely loved author Scarlett Dawn's new novella series Blood Tree (Part One).

1. Plucky heroine - Kenna is my favorite type of paranormal heroine, she's no shrinking violet in the face of adversity. Kenna posses the power to be her own savior and she knows it. Her sharp wit and sense of humor were infectious. Though Blood Tree has elements of romance, it's really a story of a young girl making the transition to a fierce young woman.

2. Couple Chemistry -Kenna and Julius are incredibly cute for a couple made up of an ancient immortal elf leader and a newbie modern day girl coming to terms with her mystical background. Julius is never condescending and I can feel the depth of his and Kenna's affection for each other bouncing off the page.

3. Quick and Easy Read - This novella flowed for me and I was able to burn through it in one sitting. Totally fun, I was engaged from start to finish.

4. Dialogue like this - 

5. Quotes like this - "It was immoral of me, but a little anarchy never hurt anyone. If anything it kept the spirit alive, living on the edge."

Do yourself a favor and check out Blood Tree (Part One). I will be anxiously awaiting Blood Tree (Part Two).
Happy reading.
