I wasn’t very happy with the previous blurb I wrote for Bound in Blood, so I revised it to hopefully make it a little clearer what the story is actually about. This might be hard to believe, but I find those little blurbs a lot harder to write than the stories themselves. There’s just so much that needs to be condensed into a succinct little description!
I’ll be updating this shortly at my various sales channels, but for now, you can see it here first!
Whether regarded as man or monster, half-elven Dominic has always been alone. Sent by his lord on a journey to find the answers that Kelemir needs to survive the coming storm with Lyntara, Dominic finds not only his life, but his entire mission in jeopardy when a single mistake sends him hurtling off-course.
Now bound against his will to a reclusive necromancer with secrets of her own, he may no longer be alone but he’s also no longer free, and the bond they share can be a deadly one. Can he survive their bond and his journey, or will Kelemir’s last hope for standing against Lyntara die with him?
This story ends on a cliffhanger.
In a nutshell, this book is about Dominic’s attempt to cross Lyntara, gather information and hopefully obtain some answers/help from the High Lord of the Union on the other side of Lyntara’s border. It’s a last-ditch, shot-in-the-dark kind of effort for the Southern Province, one that his lord was understandably reluctant to even attempt due to its dismally low odds of success, and those odds just keep dropping when everything that can go wrong promptly does within an hour of Dominic setting foot on Lyntaran soil.
The book ends when his journey ends, so I’m being clear upfront that you won’t get all the answers or learn the final outcome of his mission in this book, hence the “cliffhanger warning.” Dominic’s journey gets its own book because it has important consequences for the rest of the series. I promise I didn’t do it this way to tease you!
If you’ve been following the series so far, I’d love to hear what you think. Are you looking forward to learning more about Dominic or did you hate his guts in Lord of War? : )
