Eeeeek, I’m back again with a review for you! This time it’s my read of Bleed by Dax Varley (I loved this one SO MUCH!) You can check it out here on Goodreads.
Overall rating – 5 out of 5 stars.
I want to start by saying that I wish I didn’t read this one on my lunch break, my stomach was churning within the first few pages as everything that was written was so vivid.
From the start I knew this book would be one for me, it grabbed my attention with it’s oddness, I’ve never read anything like it before, it was something special.
Our 5 main characters were so incredibly written that I felt like they were my friends! They were all from different stereotypical high school groups, but with their supernatural elements they all came together to form a tight knit group determined to get to the bottom of what was going on at their school…
The supernatural elements of these characters weren’t overwhelming in any way, they still behaved like normal teenagers – which I loved.
As the book progressed I particularly enjoyed how each character got their own specific chapter and then minor plot lines following their interaction with the evil that is infecting their lives. For me, this gave the book an edge and brought something different to the story.
I didn’t want this book to end because I was enjoying it so much, but even the ending was top notch, I couldn’t fault it and I loved how they all had to play their part. It finished the book perfectly.
Throughout the whole book the balance of supernatural and typical teenagers was kept, and with the added horror elements, supernatural themes and the evil being, Bleed ticked all of my boxes!
I cannot rate this book highly enough, I absolutely loved it.
Let me know if you’ve read Bleed by Dax Varley, and what you thought of it.
Until next time, Em xxx
