  • Blood of the King (Khirro's Journey Book 1) on Jan. 05, 2013

    After reading On Unfaithful Wings, I was looking forward to Blood Of The King. For the most part, I wasn't disappointed. The story, a fantasy quest, has a good twist with the protagonist, Khirro, being cursed to complete it. He is bound to the king's blood and has to deliver it to the necromancer. He is compelled. Or is he? I found this book intriguing, with likable characters who aren't cut and dry and not always whom they seem to be. The story takes interesting twists, with enough common fantasy elements to satisfy fans but Blake gives most of them an interesting quirk or characteristic. Khirro is a bit whiny, like a more reluctant Luke Skywalker, but is still likable. The only thing I wished for was more worldbuilding. Places and things are hinted at, that had they been more fleshed out, would have enhanced the world. Blake's world is interesting and I want to see more of it, as well as its inhabitants. This is a trilogy and maybe that will happen in later volumes. Blake sets up some interesting threads in this first volume and I'm curious how everything is going to tie together. I recommend this book.
