Best book so far,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Blood Queen: Blood Destiny, Book 6 (Kindle Edition)
I purchased blood wager (book 1) 8 days ago and have not looked back. An addictive read with no dull moment, I highly recommend this fast-paced, emotional roller-coaster of a series. For me, Lissa now ranks up there with Sookie Stackhouse (True Blood series) and Kahlan Amnell (Sword of Truth series), among other greats when it comes to fantasy heroines. I love her character. So far, Blood Queen is one of my favourites. It tells the story of Lissa's resurrection, her character metamorphosis and empowerment (finally!) when she begins to realise her own potential and make her own life decisions, starting with saying 'no' instead of the polite submission which has been one of her personality traits thus far. She makes a decision to lead and act where others have not and it is truly satisfying that so many offer unconditional support and love for Lissa during this transition. She chooses to accept a responsibility she knew was coming her way, a role only Lissa could pull off with such command and humility. Love-wise there was a much needed shake up and I am so happy that Kifirin, of all the men in her life, found Lissa and brought her back. Her re-discovery of a certain vampire now Larentii was a tear-jerker and a half. My biggest frustration is with Merrill's tarnished character and I am intrigued to see if he will beable to redeem himself in future books??
If you have started the series, there is no doubt you must purchase and read on. If you are new to the series, I assure you that it will be more satisfying to read from the beginning.
I absolutely cannot wait until Book 7 is released and am so upset I have to wait so long for the next installment having burnt through the last six books in such a short time. I will definitely be re-reading some of my favourite scenes for a while.
