The Bookish Life: Review of WHEN WISHES BLEED

My review of WHEN WISHES BLEED can’t say enough about how I feel about this book.

This book was amazing. The characters were deep and each carried their own unique personalities. The plot was phenomenal. And the world building! This world was awesome. The ideas and creativity blew my mind.

If you like witches, tales of fate, beautiful dresses, and characters you can’t help but fall in love with, this book is for you. There’s not an emotionally flat spot in this book. It had all the feels. I have nothing but good things to say.

Sable, Daughter of Fate, was a character I’d like to sit down and have lunch with. At her young age, she had more maturity than most, but that was probably due to housing Fate within her. I’m not sure I’d want my fate read though. I think I’m content not knowing.

I had the opportunity on Wednesday to interview Casey L. Bond, the author of WHEN WISHES BLEED, on my talk show, The Bookish Life. Casey is the sweetest person and I loved talking with her.

THE OMEN OF STONES is the next book after WHEN WISHES BLEED and I cannot wait to dive into it. Once off the show, I promptly ordered a paperback copy of each of these books because I must have those beautiful covers on my bookshelves.

One Prince. One Witch. One Fate.

The upheaval in my life began the moment a prince stumbled into my house and asked me to read his fortune. Any other night, I might have made an excuse to get him to leave, but this was no normal visit. My fingers prickled to touch him. So, I granted his request by handing him a single wishbone. When he snapped it, the wish … bled.

Hearing me suck in a shocked breath, he asked what it meant. Such an ominous omen could only mean one thing: his death was imminent. Fate revealed that he wouldn’t die of natural causes. Someone wanted him dead. Stunned by the revelation, the man I now knew as Prince Tauren disappeared into a night I feared he wouldn’t survive.

The following day, I received an invitation to the castle. While it seemed the prince believed I could intervene and uncover who was plotting his death, his motives didn’t stop there. I was being summoned to join twelve other women in vying for the opportunity to be his wife and future queen. Going could mean jeopardizing my plans to reclaim my heritage and resurrect the House of Fate. But staying would guarantee Tauren’s death, and the blood of his wish would be on my hands.
