Review: Blood Will Tell / Warriors of Ankh bk 1 / Samantha Young

Synopsis (Goodreads)

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.

YA Paranormal Fiction for mature teens+ (some content may not be suitable for younger readers).

My Take


5 Stars


Blood Will Tell was an amazing book! It was so good that I devoured this book in a day (seriously!).

Eden is different from her other classmates at SSH...she's a soul eater. Her soul eater side was recently awakened with the arrival of new student, Noah. Eden struggles daily with wanting to suck the souls of her classmates and also Noah. Although Eden is an outcast at her school, Noah befriends her and is her only friend.

A lot of things happen in this book, and is well worth the read. The only problem I have with this book is the cover. Noah is described in this story as dark blonde and reminds Eden of an angel. Does the dude on the cover have dark blonde hair and look like an angel to you? I think not. It always irks me when the cover of a book either has no relevance to the story, or it has people on the front that aren't even remotely close to the description of the characters in the story. However, I suppose I can overlook it this time because I enjoyed the story so much.


The Kindle version of this book is available for FREE for a limited time through Amazon. 
The paperback is available for $8.99 on Amazon.
