The Bloodsworn

A Bloodbound Novel, #3

“The Bloodsworn” by Erin Lindsey has plenty of twists and turns and breathtaking action to keep one enthralled. There are multiple threads that have been spun over the course of the trilogy and most of them are tied off nicely, although a few of the conflicts were a bit uncomfortable for my tastes and a couple of the solutions seemed almost too pat. There seem to be too many unrequited love issues and not all of them were resolved completely, which I guess may be an indication that sequels are simmering. Despite this, the book is full of dramatic moments, exciting fights, and weirdly wonderful arcane twists and provided an entertaining and mesmerizing read. I doubt it would be easy to join the series in progress (and had to read the second book in order to catch up with what was going on), so my advice would be to start at the beginning and settle in for an enjoyable saga featuring a resourceful and capable heroine.

This exciting fantasy romance completes the 'Bloodbound' trilogy, which tells the tale of Alix Black, whose life and loyalties are interwoven with the charismatic White family. The kingdom is in danger of being obliterated and those who should be its strongest defenders are being eliminated by treachery and attacks from within. The remarkable bonds that have formed are threatened by both external and internal forces, and it may be impossible to survive the multiplicity of attacks, especially given the difficulty of distinguishing friend from foe. Fortunately, Alix and her allies have never shied away from a fight, and they’re not starting now.

Book Blurb for The Bloodsworn

The bonds of family, love, and loyalty are pushed to their limits in this thrilling conclusion to the epic saga started in The Bloodbound...

As the war between Alden and Oridia draws to an end, the fates of both kingdoms rest on the actions of a select group of individuals—and, of course, on the unbreakable bonds of blood...

Unbeknownst to most of Alden, King Erik, in thrall to a cruel bloodbinder, is locked away in his own palace, plotting revenge. To save her king, Lady Alix must journey behind enemy lines to destroy the bloodbinder. But her quest will demand sacrifices that may be more than she can bear.

Meanwhile, as the Warlord of Oridia tightens his grip on Alden, the men Alix loves face equally deadly tasks: Her husband, Liam, must run a country at war while her brother, Rig, fights a losing battle on the front lines. If either of them fails, Alden could be lost—and even if they succeed, their efforts may be too late to save everyone Alix holds dear...
