"Jessie's voice, paired with Tracey Laviolette's exquisitely metaphorical, atmospheric descriptions, drive this story from its very first passages. Young adult fantasy readers will welcome Bloodborne Awakened's unique combination of coming-of-age and quest story. Its wound into engrossing descriptions and atmospheric settings designed to keep readers thoroughly engrossed to the satisfying end, which sets the stage for another story without the frustration of the usual cliff-hanger approach--" D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer, MIDWEST BOOK REVIEWS.
