Veil of Blood and Magic

About the Book

In the shadowed heart of Nocturne, darkness and magic intertwine, and the fragile balance between humans and vampires is under threat. When a series of brutal murders points to an ancient ritual of unspeakable power, only one detective stands between the city and chaos.

Meet Seraphina Blackwood—vampire, enforcer, and protector of Nocturne. Known for her razor-sharp instincts and mastery of high-level magic, she’s called to investigate a chilling murder scene where the lines between victim and predator blur. As she unravels the mystery, Sera discovers a sinister plot involving blood magic, forbidden rituals, and a powerful sorcerer, Malachai, who may hold the key to the city's salvation or its doom.

But nothing is as it seems. Betrayed and bound by dark magic, Sera must confront her greatest enemy in the labyrinthine catacombs beneath the city. Armed only with a talisman that shields her from dark magic at the cost of her own powers, she dives into a perilous battle where every shadow hides a deadly secret.

"Veil of Blood and Magic" is a gripping tale of supernatural intrigue, arcane rituals, and a fierce heroine who will stop at nothing to uncover the truth. For fans of dark fantasy and paranormal thrillers, this is a journey into the depths of night where courage, cunning, and a touch of magic are all that stand between order and anarchy.

Join Seraphina Blackwood in her relentless hunt through the veils of blood and shadow. The hunt never ends, but neither does her resolve. Will you brave the darkness with her?
