Book Review - Bait by K.C. Blake

(Order of the Spirit Realm, #1)
By K.C. Blake
Ghosts, a reaper, and a rock star.

At sixteen Bay-Lee is not your typical girl. She doesn't even try to fit in at school. What's the point when she'll be moving to a new place within a few months?
She's lived her whole life on the run, hiding from monsters.

Then a reaper uses her closet to cross over from the Spirit Realm. It has a message for her. Just when she's about to join her father at his school for hunters she finds out they are dying on their birthdays. Something is killing them, slipping past locked doors, never leaving a trace of evidence, and her birthday is only two months away.

Becoming a hunter isn't exactly her dream come true. She's doing it for her mother, for revenge, for justice. Nothing is going to get in her way, least of all love. Then she looks up into a pair of jungle green eyes and everything changes.

My Review:
Holy Fricken Moly!! From the very first page I was swept away, with surprises around every corner, kick-ass action, addictive characters and a love story for the ages, this story will have you hooked too. K.C. Blake has created a wonderful world full of Hunters, wraiths, vampires, shifters, ghosts and loads more. When I read the blurb all I saw was "Van Helsing's daughter" and I was sold. I'm a huge fan of the movie (starring Hugh Jackman) and the book, which I have in my collection. When I started Bait I wasn't sure what was coming, but Blake knows how to keep you guessing and keep you coming back for more. I was completely dumbfounded with the way the book ended, I seriously didn't see it coming and I loved that!! (I was a little emotional, lol)
We meet Bay-Lee, not your average teenage girl. Bay-Lee is carrying a huge secret that could shock the world or have her killed.. she's Van Helsing's daughter. With a tragic past and on a quest of pure vengeance she trains to become the best hunter in the world so one day she will be strong enough to act on her revenge. One night she gets a visit from two unsuspected guests, a reaper with a warning and a rock star spirit full of curiosity and hatred. From that point on things start to get interesting. When finally she gets the ok to start hunters school and being able to get started on her plan, things start to happen that she hadn't planned for. The rock star is attending the same school and just happens to be the best hunter besides her father. Nick Gallos is head strong and completely stubborn, he truly hates Bay-Lee but is curious about her. Hate soon turns into love and that's where things start to get serious!
I could keep going but I'd spoil too much and believe me this book needs to be personally experienced. Devour and enjoy!! ^_^
Can't WAIT to find out what happens next, I'll be keeping an eye out for book 2 Hunter, coming in October.
About the author

Born and raised in California, I fell in love with writing while reading The Outsiders. Then I fell in love with Stephen King's writing style. I enjoy reading many types of books, but YA Paranormal is my favorite. I used to write for Harlequin under a different name. So that's my background. Exciting, no?
I have seven books out now: Vampires Rule, Werewolves Rule,Shifters Rule, Crushed, Witch Hunt, Bait, and my only adult novel, a romantic suspense called Pandora's Box.
