Blood Magic by Tessa Gratton
Amazon says Blood Magic is a must-read for fans of Stephanie Meyer, but don’t let that turn you off from this disturbing, dark YA romance. These monsters don’t sparkle. After Silla Kennicott’s parents die in an alleged murder-suicide, she receives a mysterious spellbook in the mail filled with the secrets of blood magic, an ancient art that harnesses primal human desires for wealth, power, and immortality. Consumed by its possibilities, Silla is willing to spill blood to uncover the truth behind her parents’ death. The hot new guy at school knows the draw of blood magic a little too well, and as he’s drawn to Silla, they discover someone else in their Missouri town knows their secret and will do anything to harness blood magic’s power for themselves.
