My loyalty and sword to Rhaetia are true.
I lend my wit and might in fealty to you.
Neither through words, nor actions and deeds, will I dishonor thee.
One by one, the heirs to the Rhaetian throne have fallen, and now the future of the kingdom rests on the champion of the realm—the Blood Sword—finding the missing daughter of the king—the Lost Princess.
Blood Sword (Lost Princess Series Book 1)...
On the island nation of Xa’aia, the Blood Sword is enslaved as a gladiator and forced to fight to entertain the masses. However, to continue the search for the Lost Princess, he will do anything to gain his freedom.
Seeing a chance for escape, Zelayra, whore to Prince Calyl of Xa’aia, purchases the barbarian gladiator—so unlike the usual J’Haran prisoners and her Xa’aian captors in looks. But there is no time to ponder her similarity to the stranger and no time to explore the distant memories and unusual feelings his presence inspires, for she’s not the only one who’s been scheming in the island kingdom.
This was a quick paced fun read. I did not want to put it down at all. When I first received this book, I wasn’t sure what to expect. Sometimes newer fantasy series show such promises, but aren’t fleshed out properly.
This one was done just right. There was just enough world building to the point of creating the space in my mind perfectly while not getting overly mired down in the details.
The characters were all well written and I just wanted more.
I can’t wait for the next book in the series. This is definitely one author to keep an eye on.
