Rating: 4 Cups
Because of a prophecy Samanthra Lampir is trying to keep her Awakening from occurring. If the prophecy is accurate, then her Awakening can trigger not only her beast from within, but may also bring about the death of her loved ones.
Along comes Dareus Dracura, a man who is known as Father of the Blood and who is feared by many, including Samanthra's father, Dias. It was he who put Dareus away using The Sleep of the Damned.
Now Dareus and Samanthra must work together to save TERAH, the planet they live on, before it is overtaken by evil. While they struggle to fight against the evil powers that are waging a war against them, an even more pressing issue comes about. The Dark Matter, which is the source of evil's power, is slowly drawing upon subjects around it and forming an entity that is more dangerous and more deadly than any other being they have fought against. Will Dareus and Samanthra be able to stop evil from winning and if so, at what cost to those they love?
Ms. Scarlett will take you on a journey through time to a place before Earth was even a speck of dirt in the galaxy. Bound By Blood: The Awakening, is the first book in a new series. While most of the story gripped me and took me on a fantastic voyage, parts of it were confusing, possibly from all the eclectic group of characters throughout this tale. I thoroughly enjoyed watching how much Samanthra came out swinging when others tried to hold her down, and Dareus' love for her made this story all the better. With a cliffhanger that will leave you breathless, this novel will leave you in suspense and have you pleading for more books to come about the planet, TERAH and all its inhabitants.
