    1. Review posted on World of Diversity Fiction ReviewsHeartsBlood is part of Praxis: Blood Magic Saga. There are three stories in this set with HeartsBlood being the big read. Blood Oath is a great short prequel to HeartsBlood, it gave me Tyr’s back story something that was lacking when I originally read HeartsBlood and Blood Ties is that short story that will ease you into the second book in this series. This review is for all three.I first read HeartsBlood in January of 2012 and I loved it. I c [...]

    2. I have been sitting here trying to find to words to express just how much I loved this book and I am not sure what I will say will do it justice. This book was amazing. I was immediately drawn in from the beginning. At first I thought the science of it would turn me off but the author explained it all to where I wasn't confused and I was wanting to know what in the world did the Beast want.I stayed up til after 5 this morning to finish this because I just couldn't stop it was just that darned go [...]

    3. Um I just finished reading this book less than 2 minutes ago, and I can honestly say that it has been a very long time since a book has affected me as deeply as Heartsblood did. Not very often does a book come along that makes you feel so intensely that the tears actually stream down your face. This one did. In fact, I'm still tearing as I write this. THIS BOOK IS PHENOMENAL. The entire book had me gasping, laughing, and crying. Literally. Carolyn McCray's writing is absolutely awesome. She writ [...]

    4. DNF.Review provided by Black Lagoon Reviews:After reading several very positive reviews about Carolyn McCray's HeartsBlood, I was eagerly anticipating reading it. However, once I finally started to do so I couldn't hide the vast amount of disappointment that I felt as after the first 100 pages I could no longer shy away from the fact that I just really wasn't enjoying either the story or the characters and was thus forced to abandon the novel totally, making this a DNF (Did Not Finish) read.So w [...]

    5. I think I may actually be giving this three star review more than it deserves. When I started reading this book I couldn't get into it and didn't understand why. In fact, I had to push my way through Hearts Blood all the way to the end. I really just couldn't connect to the characters or the story. It got a little better as I went on and there were some interesting things that I wanted to know more about so I made little goals for myself to help me get through it. But it took forever to end and [...]

    6. HeartsBlood, Carolyn McCrayWhile I've rated 4 stars it might just be 5 actually. It certainly kept me turning pages.As advertised it is a paranormal romance, urban fantasy, thriller. And it really is all those things in spades. Carolyn McCray starts a little too fast, if that is possible. I say too fast because she was using fantasy terms that had not yet been very clearly explained from the beginning, so it takes a little to understand that Praxis, for example, is essentially “magic” of a s [...]

    7. I liked it well enough. I thought it refreshing that there was very little sex and still held my interest. But I thought it was too long and drawn out and the lead female character kind of bugged me. She did not seem emotionally mature in regards to male female relationships and pinned after the hero in a way that reminded me of 'He is not that much into you' in THAT way. So I thought that was strange - that aspect made me uncomfortable. But there were other things I liked about the book, especi [...]

    8. I don't usually read these sort of books, so I wasn't sure how it would be. I found it facinating and interesting. I really didn't get the magic and all as I don't read about it. So there was times while I was reading it that I was confused and had to go back and re-read parts. It was sad at the end. I would like to read the second book as I am still interested in the characters and now I have a foundation of the story and magic. I would recommend this book to those who really are into the urban [...]

    9. I really liked this book. The plot, the characters and the writing were all wonderful. I loved the complexity of the characters, especially Sal. There were definitely spots that could have used the kind of help an editor provides. A tiny bit of plot tweaking, spell-checking and line-editing would kick this book up to a 5 star. I wonder if the author submitted to publishing houses before self-pubbing.

    10. I love this book! It should become a series. There's already a 2nd book coming. I can envision telling this tale forever. Or at least until 3100. Philosophy (exquisitely buried) that I am still pondering. Great characterization, suspense. Why have I never heard of this writer before?

    11. Tyr is a great hero. Loved the fast pace and the plot kept me interested. Not much romance till the end but still recommend it.

    16. I don't normally read much Paranormal or Paranormal Romance but this story was surprisingly good and I may even get the next book in the series. It was believable, the characters were interesting and well developed. Lots of surprises and I loved Sal and Tyr as our heroine and hero and the relationship they develop as two people from different worlds.

    17. On a dark stormy night, Dr. Salista Calon – Sal to everyone – is working in the ER along with her best friend and nurse, Maria. The lights are out and Sal has to stitch up her patient in between strikes of lightening. Maria, always irreverent, is teasing her about her new engagement to Dr. Richard Updike. During the next flash of lightening Sal sees a man in a leather coat standing next to Maria, his arm raised with a knife in it. She knocks Maria away and frantically searches for the myster [...]

    18. *sigh*I feel like I have to explain my 2 stars because I normally rate this author at 4-5. This book was NOT up to the standard set by her other novels. I found the characters to be a bit flat. They reacted predictably (something, say, Darc never does). The plot was repetitive and boring. Seriously? How many "beast battles" did we really need? The thing was impenetrable. We got in the first big battle and definitely after the second one. Did we need to see them throw themselves into the fray ove [...]

    19. My thoughts on this book, I won't give a description of this book because I think the summary listed is pretty much to the point. Plus there's too much that goes on in this book I wouldn't do it justice. Now that being said I will say I almost gave up on this book. I didn't find the beginning attention grabbing, but I decided to continue due to all the good reviews. Maybe I was in a sour mood when I started the book, IDK.but I'm glad I did continue. I can't remember where I was when it really gr [...]

    20. Premise:Dr Salista Calon’s best friend is brutally slaughtered one stormy eve, and the only clue she has to the murderer is a mysterious man clad in leather. With science on her side and magic on his, they work together, often at his dismay, to stop a beast’s deadly rampage.My Review:The good:Great plot. Kept me reading. The romance aspect wasn’t too thick until the end, yet enough to make you warm. The characters were believable, and when I say that I include their profession. After readi [...]

    21. HeartsBlood deals with the praxis of using blood to influence the essence and intent of an object, including people, with the blood from the heart having the most influence. It is also the story of Sal, an over-worked emergency ward doctor in a dead-end relationship, and Try, the deadblood who shows her the possibilities of true love.With evoking descriptions of the setting using all of the senses, Carolyn McCray allows the reader to experience all that Sal does, from muscle ache to heart ache.

    22. I downloaded this as a free book on my kindle, i am so use to all the free books being pretty crappy that i was totally shocked when i read this. It is a fantastic story and i would have paid money for it if it wasn't free. I cant wait to read others from this series. It is supernatural themed but not vampires, it deals a lot in blood and blood as a life source to the worlds magic. It was a pretty impressive original story. The only issue i have with it is the main characters name Tyr ( i think [...]

    23. I started reading this book and have really enjoyed it so far. It is a taste of something different. As I was reading I got about halfway through and the story was just over and I thought ###, then I realized I had thought I had the entire book and only had the sample. Needless to say I zipped over and bought the book and am about three quarters of the way through and anxious to finish.hOOO bOOY! I finished this book today and have to say that the ending left me chomping at the bit for more. I h [...]

    24. This book was interesting, billed as a paranormal romance which usually turns me off but the plot summary was interesting. I borrowed it from the kindle library and decided I'd give it a chance. I'm glad I did. It was very fast paced, definitely more a paranormal thriller than anything. It had an interesting setting, premise and idea that the author wove throughout the story. There was a bit of a twist at the end and really for a book billed as a paranormal romance, the only sex came at the end [...]

    25. I'm pretty sure I downloaded this for free. I can only think of a handful of books I downloaded free that I truly enjoyed. This book will be added to that list. Heartsblood was quite a ride and there were times I really got the chills like Tyrs very first appearance.…creepy. I love the dynamics of Sal & Tyr's relationship. And yes, there where some predictable things but there were also several surprises that caught me off guard. Oh and I love the idea of Praxis and intent. Great element f [...]

    26. You know the feeling when a book has been built up so much that there's no possibility of the reality being better than the hyperbolic reviews? That's what this book felt like to me. I really expected to like this, if only because it was a fantasy novel not centered around vampires/werewolves. Growing up in San Francisco, the setting was also enticing.Maybe because I read the Kindle version, but the amount of typos and grammatical errors were distracting to say the least. I also felt the voices [...]

    27. I had not read any reviews about this book prior to reading. Consequently, I had no idea what type of book this was going to be. Instantly I was drawn into the world of "what is fixin to happen?" Next thing I know, I was having a hard time putting this down.This book takes so many twists, that I didn't know what to be expecting next. I couldn't believe the connection between Tyr and the beast. This was not what I was expecting. The only problem I have with this book was the ending. I hate cliffh [...]

    28. I'm being generous with three stars, unfortunately. So far I have enjoyed everything else I've read by McCray but although I didn't hate this book, it just wasn't fulfilling. The set up for this entire story was disjointed and chaotic. I had no idea where she was trying to gowas he vampire? was he some other creature? I couldn't tell for a very long time. The character development for these potentially great characters was lazy. The premise of the book, the sort of mixing science with magic is a [...]

    29. This book is not your normal paranormal romance. Think, Greys Anatomy with paranormal mixed in. There are a lot of medical references in this book and those not acquainted with medical jargon, may have to do a bit of referencing to get what the main character is talking about most of the time. I liked the heroine in the book because of her courage, but also her ability to seem just as human as the rest of us. There is a lot of fast paced action involved and the ending isn't quite what you will e [...]
