Hello Gemmies! As you know I am a proud card carrying street team member of The Blood Web Chronicles.....yes I'm a Verity Knight! This delicious paranormal romance series by Caedis Knight is just wonderful! Calling it paranormal romance feels like a misrepresentation....it is so much more. You get steamy romance, paranormal action, noir mysteries, and that's just for starters! I recommend this series for anyone looking for an escape from the craziness that is 2020.
For the uninitiated here is a little information. These books are co-authored by two established fantasy authors Jacqueline Silvester and N.J Simmonds. Together they are Caedis Knight. There will be six full novels in the series plus a few novellas! With the announcement of Book two this week I thought it would be nice to do a spotlight post on the books released so far and their gorgeous covers!
You guys are NOT ready for all of the sexy paranormal action in these books! Here are the books in reading order.
Sirens of Los Angeles (Novella set in sun kissed Malibu)
Find out how Saskia de la Cruz became a reporter for paranormal newspaper The Blood Web Chronicle in this delicious prequel novella. Saskia is a Verity Witch - her only magic being that she can tell the truth from a lie. When she sets off for the glitzy shores of Malibu to spend spring break with her sister Mikayla, her one goal is to forget her university worries and issues with outdated witch hierarchies, and drown them in surfer six-packs and tequila cocktails.
But when local influencers and male models start washing up ashore, drained of their youth, Saskia knows something wicked dwells in the deep. Which is perfectly fine because she plans on staying the hell away from the water! That is until her powerful, siren-obsessed sister disappears, and the search leads Saskia deeper than she ever thought possible.
Accompanied by beautiful but suspicious surfers Eden and Zee, Saskia will have to travel for her answers to the home of Hollywood’s vainest residents - the ocean floor.
Vampires of Moscow (First full length book in The Blood Web Chronicles series)
Saskia de la Cruz is a Verity Witch - her only magic being that she can tell the truth from a lie.
As an investigative reporter for The Blood Web Chronicle, the biggest news outlet on the paranormal dark Blood Web, Saskia spends her days cracking twisted para cases hoping that someday, some case, will bring her closer to finding her missing sister.
In snowy Moscow drained corpses of illegal workers have begun to turn up, with hundreds more reported missing. When Saskia is sent on assignment to investigate an oligarch Vampire crime ring that might be behind the deaths, she plans to get in out of the city’s frozen grasp quickly...preferably with her neck intact.
But beautiful ballet dancer Konstantin Volkov and his wildcard brother Lukka complicate things. The vampire brothers have their own reasons for solving the string of murders, reasons that conflict with Saskia’s mission. Soon, Saskia finds herself enmeshed in the city’s glittering web of crime, passion, and violence, where truths and lies are one and the same.
Witches of Barcelona (Second Full length book in the Blood Web Chronicles series)
Saskia de la Cruz is a Verity Witch and investigative reporter for The Blood Web Chronicle, the biggest news outlet on the paranormal Blood Web.
After escaping murderous Vampires in snowy Moscow, Saskia can't imagine a more difficult or more dangerous mission. That is until her editor sends her to Barcelona to investigate a high profile disappearance at the Mage Association, which just happens to be run by her evil mother Solina.
Saskia's plan is to spend as little time in Barcelona as possible, until she meets three junior members of the MA who know more than they let on - including information on Saskia’s missing sister, Mikayla. Among her new leads is Catalan bruixa Luisa, who has a hold over Saskia stronger than any magic.
It doesn't take long until Saskia finds herself under the glittering spell of MA high society, where morals are few and magic is law. Can Saskia escape the clutches of a world that's always been dangerous for her, before it turns deadly?

I love these books so much. From the characters, to the sexy romance, to the humor, to the gritty crime drama, to the locations, and the buffet of paranormal excellence. They also have gorgeous book covers. I love how each cover coordinates with each other and gives clues to what can be found inside. The snow globe aspect is just perfect....a hint at the hidden world of the paranormal. I hope you will join me on the Blood Web! Happy Reading!
