Gr 9 Up–Ana has the power to control blood. She is an Affinite, someone who possesses the power to control natural elements; but Affinites are considered dangerous and are enslaved. Ana is notoriously called “The Blood Witch” and is unjustly accused of a crime that she did not commit. With the help of career criminal Quicktongue, Ana sets out to seek revenge and clear her name. But can she trust Quicktongue, or does he have an ulterior motive? This book is highly recommended for readers who loved Tomi Adeyemi’s Children of Blood and Bone. Zhao is a master writer who weaves a powerful tale of loyalty, honor, and courage through a strong female protagonist. This novel can also be used to help start the conversation about human trafficking and its effects on society, both historically and currently.
VERDICT Readers will love the fast-paced energy and plot twists in this adventure-packed story.
