The book has smokin' hot gods, snarky goddesses, not 1 but 3 kick-ass female humans, several baddies, the fates demanding their due and a whole lot of prophecy and destiny. It's also got intrigue, adventure and chemistry that is hot enough to set fire to your panties. And stirring it all together is Nylicia, that girl knows so much more than she is letting on.
Looking back I could probably summarise the whole book in a few sentences, and yet at no point did it feel slow or dragging. I was totally gripped by this wonderful tale that blended urban fantasy on Earth with happenings on other realms. This could be read as a stand alone, not that I'd want to because I'm looking forward to reading more about these characters. However it is clear that parts of this story are setting up plot lines for future books, so whilst there isn't a cliffhanger there are 'loose ends'.
It dropped a star because whilst I enjoyed the book it didn't tug at my emotions and I do have to agree that there is no relationship building between Dyletri and Ismini. I found the connection/chemistry between them believable but it did come across more as outside forces pushing them together rather than them falling in love.
This is a new-to-me author and, as I've already said, I enjoyed this book enough to want to continue the series.
This is a reworked version of this story and I was lucky to read original a couple of years ago, even luckier to be asked to read newly worked book!
This is one them books that stick with you, I love Mythology, hot men, strong women and some sexy times :)
Ismini has a destiny, she has known for a while now and fully accepts that she has to die to keep other people safe - she isn't a weak person, she just knows she can't change destiny. Maybe the god of destiny can though......
Dyletri, was the god of lust, he hung up his boots a millennia ago. He has been waiting for his lovers twin soul to be born so he can have his lover again, he made a promise, he has to keep his promise surely?
Ismini has seen images of Dyletri and knows that she would love to get him in bed but Dyletri hasn't seen her since she was small and struggles with his reaction when they finally meet - LUST, he wants her so much but can't have her.
If you love to watch a hot man struggle and get excited to see the woman get what she wants eventually you will love this book. It has some smoking hot scenes in <3
This book has mythology, gods with fancy names and personalities that you will want to know more about. There is great banter between all the characthers and of course the story has the necessary angst.
It has been a while since I read the first version but there seemed to be more background story of the gods, the sex was as hot and the attraction of our main couple was pouring of the page. Basically I really enjoyed rereading this hot book.
5 godly stars
I really enjoyed this story. It's definitely a book where you need to give 100% concentration because if you don't, you will find you are going back afew pages to reread (guilty has charged) I love stories like this. Definitely a book not to missed.

In the current time Dyletri wants to bring back Dimithinia and needs a human sacrifice and the powers that be have chosen Ismini as the one for him. But when he rescues her from two men chasing her he realizes that he is drawn to her in a way he has never been drawn to anyone before.
Will Dyletri be able to use Ismini as a sacrifice or do the gods have other plans for them?
This was an interesting read that I found somewhat difficult to get into as I was trying to figure out who was who is past lives and how everyone was intertwined. One part that I found confusing was that Dyletri was once Salicyar until he was betrayed by the Aviraji and he became Dyletri.
Ismini was a tough girl who was almost used as a pawn and I couldn't figure out why Enteax and Lisrin knew right from the beginning that she was the one that Dyletri was after. But they didn't give up and some not good things happened because of it.
I liked that Dyletri and Ismini were able to act on their feelings and figure out what they meant to each other. The role of Nylicia was interesting and I found myself very intrigued by her and what she could do.
I liked the ending and the change in Ismini and I wonder if the same thing will happen with her best friend, Evesse.
I found the book interesting but found it didn't grip me the way that others have. -By Rebecca
What I liked:
★ This book was so HOT!! The words, the growls, the moans, the undulations of bodies, the descriptions... so. freaking. hot!!
★ The world building - the way that Enzyria was described, I could easily imagine this realm. From the 108-inch TV screen to the rooms to the hills and mountain ranges to the temples, I could picture it all.
★ The characters - I don’t just mean the main characters of this story, Dyletri and Ismini, although they were fantastic and I’ll get to them in a sec. I mean all of the characters. The author took the time to give details for each so that I was able to not only picture them in my head, but also give them their own unique mannerisms, facial expressions, etc. She made them so freaking real!
★ Dyletri and Ismini - Dyletri fancied himself in love with a Queen (Dimithinia) and when she was killed he vowed to resurrect her. He had to balance the tide, so in order to save her soul he had to sacrifice another. Both he and Ismini knew what her purpose was and although she wasn't okay with it, she had accepted it. But when these two meet face-to-face, their destiny takes a sudden swerve. Dyletri tries hard to deny the pull of this human but Ismini has already accepted her fate - she's mated to him. And there is so much more!!
★ The plot - it was like a mix of gods, humans, destiny, mating and then… oh yeah, btw, there’s a war coming between these amazing people I’ve met and the Aviraji, which as I understand it, used to be what all of these gods were.
★ The intricacy of the plot - yeah, I know I should have included this above, but it deserves its own point. There was so much going on (and easy to follow along) that I need to make it clear how freaking lovely this was. There’s obviously a romance build going on, but there’s also a battle, both internally and externally, for all of these gods, especially with Dyletri and Zeniel. Dyletri was originally the God of Lust, sleeping with anyone who called him. Zeniel was originally Mavrak, the God of Vengeance, who led a massacre and had to be tortured into submission. Gah!! And there is SO much more to learn!!
★ The so-called side characters who felt very much like main characters, although they didn’t each get a POV. I can’t wait to learn more about each and every one of them. I was able to see their plots developing in this story, but I can’t wait to find out exactly how everything plays out. Zeniel/Mavrak is next and I’m sure it will be just as fabulous as this one.
★ Cyake, Nylicia, Zexistr, Sil, Liz, Ian, Nythi, and I hope there’s a freaking story for Crius and Dimithinia. I NEED it!!
What I didn’t like:
★ *crickets* Cuz there was NOTHING that I didn’t like!!
I’m just gobsmacked! N. Isabelle Blanco’s new series has virtually smacked me in the face with this book’s awesomeness!! I want to tell you all about it, but I won’t. I really need you to add this to your reading list though. If you’re a fan of fantasy, mythology, and/or paranormal romance, you will definitely be a fan of this book.

N. Isabella Blanco is an author I know from past work and boy does she sure know how to get your blood pumping with her erotic tales! She has never disappointed and within Blood Flows Deep she didn’t leave me hanging with the sexual tension between Ismini and Dyletri. When the muscles and clothes start to come unleashed… better hold on, she’s about to rock your world!
Within Blood Flows Deep you will have to take your mind and rewire a little bit. While reading the prologue, it became a little complicated with all the different terms/names/meanings, but don’t fret, during the course of the novel everything is explained in great detail that everything will make sense. Even though this book mentions “several hundreds years ago in mythology”, don’t let this deter you from reading if you are on the border of “if I or shouldn’t I”. The setting is set in the present, the now. Nothing is outdated which was nice to read and understand.
Ismini is/supposed to be the human sacrifice for the God of Fertility Dyletri. Her ultimate sacrifice is to help bring back Dyletris love back, but when he goes to collect her, his plans spiral out of control… when did she become a beautiful woman? What’s happening to him when he becomes near her?
N. Isabella Blanco’s imagination is wondrous! For her to conjure up these scenarios, to plot them out and turn them into fantastic books… BRAVO to you! If you are looking for your next paranormal romance with some erotic chemistry, then look no further, 1-click this book today! This will be a novel you will want to dive into today!!
