Eden is a Soul Eater. While that hasn’t meant much to her in the past, she’s pretty sure any minute now she’s going to go all "Carrie" on her eleventh grade class.
Noah is an Ankh. As an immortal Warrior, his purpose in life is to hunt down and kill Soul Eaters.
Eden is Noah’s next assignment. Problem is… this is an assignment with a difference. Eden’s not your average, run of the mill, Soul Eater. Noah’s job? To test Eden for possible redemption.
It’s a risky business.
Especially if Noah awakens Eden’s inner monster.
It would be kind of hard for Eden to listen to the angel on her shoulder when the devil on the other is telling her, her new best friend is a lying, scheming, immortal enemy...
....betrayal is such a bitch.
So is Eden when you get on her bad side.

Okay, so this book has become my new obsession. This review is going to be short and simple, I loved it! Every single minute of it! I've never read anything like it and I promise you that you won't find another book similar to this one. It's so original with strong characters and a great story! There are some parts of the story though that isn’t suitable for teens, so I would say that this is definitely for the ages of eighteen and over.
Samantha Young touches some very raw and rough subjects in Blood Will Tell. Eden's father is psycho. He's sick in every way and see's nothing wrong with what he does. Eden wants nothing to do with soul eating and tries to avoid becoming like her family. This becomes harder when Noah enters her life. His soul calls to her every time they are together. She wants to take his soul so bad, but every time she comes close she somehow gets control of herself. She has no idea that Noah knows exactly what she is and every time she comes close, he knows about it. There was a part in the book that made me want to break down and cry. When the truth about Noah and his family finally comes out, the things that go down was heart breaking. I felt every emotion Eden felt and wanted to cry with her.
Blood Will Tell was like watching a movie in my head. I cannot stress anymore how much I love this book. This is why sometimes I love reading books by self-published authors. They can cross the line and get away with it. To me this makes the book more believable. Now I am off to dive into the second book in the series, Blood Past. This was supposed to be a short and simple review, but I just have so much to say about it that I want to keep typing. If you've read this book already, send me a message. I would love to talk with others about it. So good!!!!! It’s worth rereading hundreds of times!
5 out of 5 Stars!
