Not-quite-a-goddess, but no longer only a girl, Astrid finds herself in a situation where fate—and not just her own—lies in the balance. Except for Lillith – what happened there, anyways? It is clear that he loves maguc sister, even if he takes the big brother attitude a little too far at times. She’s one of those writers who you can tell carefully considers every sentence, and the result is a story that sings and sighs and trembles and terrifies in all the right places, with lines that linger on your tongue for days afterward.
What’s a little spilled blood if she can uncover the truth? She gets a spell book that starts off the story.
But their father will not choose an heir until the longest night of the year, when prophecies align and a poison ritual can be enacted. His father, a famed berserker warrior, went to prison after killing thirteen innocent people during a mindless battle-frenzy.
I was about to find out if magic was real. Why does he call Silla, bumblebee? Jul 31, Lisa Mandina rated it really liked it. Eww, who wants wine with someone’s blood in it. This book is the perfect example of everything not to do. Why are you talking about the sky when you’re tied up? I feel bad comparing this mess to “Immortal. Anna Dressed in Blood.

Growing up on an isolated farm in Kansas with other practitioners may have kept her from making friends her own age, but it has also given her a sense of purpose—she’s connected to the land and protective of the magic.

She was this mysterious character who I thought was going to be part of the twist or at least have some role in it, but then the author seemed to just forget about her; we never got any explanation about what part she was really playing in mayic of this tessx it can’t be nothing. For such a fast-paced plot, I read it painstakingly slow. Then Silla is introduced, whose life story up to that point is pretty tragic.

But ancient creatures are moving in the bloid beneath the country. Nick is forgettable; no, seriously, please forget him. On the positive – I did like Silla.
