FullSizeRender-10November 1st saw the start of the second stage of the SPFBO – the Self Published Fantasy Blog off organised by Mark Lawrence.  All the details can be found here.

Today I’m highlighting the fourth book that I will be reading for the SPFBO.  All the books have been drawn randomly. Book No 1: Shadow Soul by Caitlyn Davis, review here.  Second book Paternus by Dark Ashton (review here).  My third book was the The Grey Bastards by Jonathan French and my review will follow very soon.  The next book on my list is: Larcourt by K A Krantz ( Fire Born, Blood Blessed #1).  Check it out:

larcourtBlood-beings can be chattel or char. 

Fire seethes through the veins of every Morsam, demanding domination and destruction. Combat is a hobby. Slaughtering the inferior blood-beings is entertainment. Life is a repetitious cycle in the prison fashioned by the gods. But mix-race abomination Vadrigyn os Harlo suspects the key to freedom lies with safeguarding the blood-beings; until her blood-born mother uses foreign magic to turn the Morsam against Vadrigyn. Betrayed, bound, and broken, Vadrigyn struggles against the dying of her essential fire. Yet the ebbing flames unleash the dormant magic of her mixed heritage… 

The magic to destroy free will. 

Seized by the gods and dumped in the desert nation of Larcout to stop history from repeating, Vadrigyn discovers her mother’s legacy of treason and slaughter still festers. To survive the intrigues of the royal court, the roiling undercurrents of civil war, and the gods themselves, Vadrigyn must unravel the conspiracy behind her mother’s banishment. But manipulating free will unleashes a torrent of consequences. 

If she fails the gods, she will return to the Morsam prison, stripped of all magic and all hope. 

If she succeeds, she can rule a nation. 

Kasthu. Roborgu. Inarchma. 
Live. Learn. Burn.

    This sounds intense! The idea of magic that could destroy free will is incredibly spooky, so I hope it’s done well. 🙂

    At first I thought I might have missed your Grey Bastards review, then I saw it was coming soon. You’re really making great progress through the books! I hope you’ll enjoy this one.

      Well, I’m a little bit behind but my March and April I’ve kept pretty free so hopefully plenty of time to catch up
