***THIS BOOK WAS PROVIDED TO NERD GIRL IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW***
In days past, blood rituals were carried out for immortality. Blood meant life, pain meant power, purity meant beauty.
Amelia Alexis was the most beautiful woman in a small town in upstate New York in the Seventeen Hundreds. Her past was unknown. Her life was a mystery. Her ties to others were non-existent.
Beth Ferguson was a young woman, pure in virtue. Her family was poor, jobs were scarce, opportunities were few…until she goes to work for Amelia.
Things seem normal at Amelia’s, at first. Days are filled with work. Nights are filled with sleep. Meeting the other young women employed there sets Beth a little more at ease in her new surroundings.
As Beth and her new found friend, Anna, begin exploring, they find things that are beyond their everyday chores, beyond evil. Amelia id not what she had appeared to be.
Jared Horton and Father George Newton uncover an alarming question about Amelia. Could she be older than she appears? Is she the same evil woman from decades ago in Salem? What is the secret to her youth?
Filled with horror, blood, torture and a touch of erotica and sex, Blood Rites is a thrill ride that offers something for followers of every genre.
This story is reminiscent of Elizabeth Bathory. Amelia takes innocent girls to do blood rites that will keep her youthful.It is a quick read with only 84 pages or so. There were a few grammatical errors, but they did not take away from the story. There are torture scenes, sex scenes and blood and gore. Not recommended for younger readers or the faint of heart.
If you want a fast horror read that keeps you engrossed, I recommend reading Blood Rites.
