The book:

Before the earth existed, there dimensions where doors opened to other dimensions and twelve powerful and ancient bloodlines existed. Though others have forgotten, the Crone has not and she is the only one who can still read the writing on the wall. Taking a young girl of the blood to the cave with her, the Crone enters the secret room and the girl watches as a time forgotten appears before her. Like a ghost unable to comment or interfere with what she sees, the girl must watch and feel everything before her.

Samanthra Lmpir is one of seven sisters born under the same stars on the same day, and she’s high priestess of their clan. Samanthra’s father has kept the sisters apart all of their lives and claims it’s for their own good, especially Samanthra’s. He claims that he is protecting her from the “awakening” and a curse, but his intentions may not be as caring as he hopes she will believe.

Now the festival of Beal-Tene has arrived and Samanthra’s father has ordered his daughters to stay away, but Samanthra must attend. As high priestess, she can’t miss the celebration, so she and her sisters defy their father’s orders and begin their journey.

Samanthra has told no one of her dreams of a man she can’t quite see in her mind’s eye, yet when she arrives at the festival, he’s there; at the pub, he’s there. And he is determined to claim her.

The Review:

Bound by Blood is a romantic, poetically written story that takes the reader on a journey like no other I’ve read. Full of beautiful imagery, spells and poetry, this is a book to get lost in. The author has written a wonderful, magical, spellbinding tale that will capture the reader’s imagination, as well as their heart. This is a “don’t miss this book” read!
