This week I am spotlighting Blood Bound by Keshia Swaim. I got this review book from Spencer Hill Press sometime after July 29. It was sent to my summer home and I didn't get back there to pick it up until mid-October. Here is the description from Amazon:
Starting college a year early is hard. Starting fae college and learning to protect the world from the Unseelie is harder. Brielle Reed has always been an over-achiever, but this time she may have bitten off more than she can chew. Between her crash course in fae politics, struggles to control her new mind-reading ability, training sessions with the demanding Dr. Schwartz, and discoveries about the father who is still a mystery to her, Brielle finds herself longing for a chance at a normal life. But she may not get that chance. Or chance at a life at all, for that matter.Beginning:
