King of Battle and Blood is a fantasy, fiction, romance series, which King of Battle and Blood is the first book. With vampires, witches, and other monstrous evils which either eat human flesh or crave Blood. With a strong, butt-kicking female lead who have you rooting for her from the start.
The description used by the author allows you to visualize the scene playing out before you as if you are there with them. When the female lead, Isolde, meets a Vampire for the first time you feel every part of the scene as if the emotions are your own. The confusion, lust, disgust, anticipation, and excitement.
There are steamy scenes in this book and again you feel the emotions of the characters in these scenes, the frustration, and the need for a climax. The chemistry between the characters is felt and you want more of it.
I am enjoying this book very much, the development of the relationship between King Adrian and Isoldes is intriguing, both characters have such strong beliefs that are opposites of each other, drawn together by their lust for one another, kept together by the rejection of her people.
I am drawn in and just have to find out where their relationship leads. Which is the real truth of the past? Why is King Adrian the way he is? Does Isolde give way to her monster belief? I have so many questions that I just need to keep reading to find answers to.Discover new content on-the-go with Wehear
