Blood Song by Rhiannon Hart, who just happens to be... yes, an Australian author! I'm sure you didn't see that coming ;) Nomes over at Inkcrush posted her review and said:
The other thing you should absolutely know about this book is it is crazily original. The plot continually heats up and the villains (!) are insanely, genuinely creepy.
