    1. 4,5 stars / Ages 14+I got this as an arc - and must confess I didn't expect to be blown away, but hoped for a pretty decent read.I was very pleasantly surprised! It is a really engaging story, that had me hooked right from the start. I read it in two evenings, and hardly put it down.Of course it did have some small flaws - but they really were just minor ones, and quite common in YA, so I round my 4,5* up to 5.Said flaws were two tiny details that weren't quite right that I noticed in a characte [...]


    2. I read this as an ARC, and didn't take long about it. It's a very tightly and twistingly plotted, well-written story, packed full of tension, intrigue and action, with teenage characters you can get behind and who aren't hormoaning all the time or getting into pointless love-triangle diversions to spice things up. In fact, everything in the book seems to fall cleanly and naturally out of the starting conditions, which is that there are various types of "preternaturals" living in human society, h [...]


    3. I was lucky enough to receive an ARC of Heart Blade, so was able read it just prior to release. I am very thankful for that privilege, as the book was much, much more than I expected. Heart Blade does not read like a debut novel, but rather the work of someone who’s honed their skills for a while.The story follows three people. Rose is in the care of a religious order; she is being hunted due to an ancient prophecy, and is whisked away by her mysterious godfather when a preternatural mercenary [...]


    4. Urban Fantasy isn't normally my bag, and YA UF is definitely out of my comfort zone. But this debut from Juliana Spink Mills, published by Woodbridge Press, is actually a very good YA UF for anybody who wants a more modern take on the shapechanger and vampires mythos than Buffy and Twilight have had to offer.Refreshingly, both Del and Rose, the half-demon central characters, are independently motivated and not in romantic thrall to some immortal plank of wood. There *are* immortals, but they are [...]


    5. 4 Stars.Heart Blade was a really fun book to read! The premise is really strong, the plot flows well, the characters are interesting, complex and engaging and most importantly, the ending was incredible! Plus, Arthurian Legend references FTW always and forever (Merlin fans unite!!). I'm going to start with the characters first. I loved reading about them and their emotional journeys, but (yes, unfortunately) this book did have one of my ultimate pet peeves and that is *drum roll* constantly chan [...]


    6. This book was full of twists and turns from the minute I picked it up. I marveled at the author's ability to navigate a number of plot lines seamlessly and was completely surprised by the ending. The characters were well-developed and the relationships were nicely fleshed out. I am so excited to see where these characters go in book two. Well done, Juliana Spink Mills! I just ordered three more copies as gifts!!


    7. I don't usualy read YA novels, but this came highly reccomended, and rightly so. Great storytelling, well developed world and fully fledged characters make this a really great read. If you like urban fantasy, supernatural, or even light horror, you will enjoy this.The Heart Blade has risen indeed.


    8. I really liked this book and I think anyone with a taste for the paranormal (and even some who don't) would like it as well! ;) For a full review, follow the link: suereadingcorner.wordpress


    9. HEART BLADE marks the debut of YA Fantasy author Juliana Spink Mills who writes with the confidence usually only exhibited by authors who already have an acclaimed series or two out. Her prose is clean and her storytelling is deft, combining to create an engaging and well-paced read.At first glance, one might mistake HEART BLADE for yet another Urban Fantasy YA series packed with vampires, werewolves, witches and all the usual suspects. However, Mills puts her own stamp on these well-worn figure [...]


    10. Blade Heart is cast with demons and angels, vampires and witches. It’s perfect for aficionados of epic fantasy.Blade Heart is the story of Rose, the victim of an assassination attempt at the start of the story. Rose is key to prophesied Heart Blade, a mythical weapon that could change the balance of power forever. It’s also the story of Del Raven, a half-demon fighting for freedom from her liege lord and against her destiny to kill mortals. The time of the prophesied Blade Heart draws near, [...]


    11. This is the review of a YA Urban Fantasy by someone who doesn't really want YA. Or that much Urban Fantasy either. As such, I am somewhat unsure about this description, but Heart Blade seems to be very archetypal of both.It is the tale of a half-demon named Del. In Heart Blade's universe, half-demons have some pretty heavy amnesia about their life before becoming a demon, and only truly come into their heritage after killing. For the former, Del only has a scar gouged into her arm; it says Never [...]


    12. A great story, with even better characters to carry me along through it.Del is a half-demon, feeding off of sorrow and refusing to pledge to her clan and become a full demon. In her search for Sanctuary she encounters Ash, a descendant of angels in training to be a sentinel, an enforcer of the laws of the Covenant. Del's violation of those laws gives Ash the courage to defy his father to protect her. Together they set off into the world in search of the Guild, which will protect Del from her Lie [...]


    13. Juliana Spink Mills’ Heart Blade is a great YA Fantasy, and a brilliant debut from a really promising author. Heart Blade is the opening volume in a new series, and although nominally YA (Young Adult) the novel is a great read for adults too. It’s a fast-paced, tightly written Urban Fantasy with great characters and an interesting plot that kept surprising me right up until the end.The story takes place in a world recognisable as our own except for one detail: preternatural creatures from my [...]


    14. CaptivatingI have a complaint: from opening this book, I've found it impossible to put down, so no sleep, no dinner made, no groceries bought.The author has woven a complex tale with wonderful, three-dimensional characters who captivated me from the first page. Somehow she kept all the strands of the story spinning and brought them together in a finale that will spoil me for lesser books for some time to come. Now I can't wait to get hold of the next one in the series (although this one happily [...]


    15. Heartblade By Juliana Spink MillsDemons. Angels. Vampires…Yes, please. Debut Author Juliana Spink Mills knows how to ramp up the tension. She created a secret world within our own with solid world building. I loved all the characters and at the end, there’s a twist…You’ll never guess it. Plus there’s some kissing, so of course, I was hooked. Buy your copy today and then add reviews everywhere because you’re going to want Mills to keep writing. I know I do!


    16. A prophecy foretold of the Heart Blade, a weapon that could be wielded for good or evil, depending on who finds it first. Set in an urban, modern world full of demons, vampires, and half-angels--among other paranormal beings--HEART BLADE by Juliana Spink Mills is a YA novel that crosses over into adult appeal. The writing was tight, the plot was so engaging, and the rather large cast of characters was well-developed. I loved this book and am excited to read the next in the series!


    17. I was fortunate to be able to get an ARC of Juliana Spink Mills' YA novel Heart Blade. I had read the description, but was not prepared for the way the book grabbed me from the first page. It is classed as YA, but I’m sure it will appeal to a wider audience. Even after I’d finished reading, the book stayed in my mind for quite some time. This is Juliana Spink Mills' debut novel – what a fantastic start to her series.
