Waiting on Wednesday: Blood and Salt by Kim Liggett

This reminds me of a more bloody and gory version of Beautiful Creatures.
The creepy ancestor, the messed up love between a human and something supernatural - I'm digging it!

Also, every novel that has the word alchemy in its synopsis definitely has my attention.

Pages: 352
Publisher: GP Putnam's Sons Books
Release Date: September 22nd 2015

Genre: YA/ Horror


"“When you fall in love, you will carve out your heart and throw it into the deepest ocean. You will be all in—blood and salt.”

These are the last words Ash Larkin hears before her mother returns to the spiritual commune she escaped long ago. But when Ash follows her to Quivira, Kansas, something sinister and ancient waits among the rustling cornstalks of this village lost to time.

Ash is plagued by memories of her ancestor, Katia, which harken back to the town’s history of unrequited love and murder, alchemy and immortality. Charming traditions soon give way to a string of gruesome deaths, and Ash feels drawn to Dane, a forbidden boy with secrets of his own.

As the community prepares for a ceremony five hundred years in the making, Ash must fight not only to save her mother, but herself—and discover the truth about Quivira before it’s too late. Before she’s all in—blood and salt."
