Blood Review from Rebekah B.

Blood has been out for a little over a week and I'm loving your feedback! While my blog tour was coming together, I heard from a fan who wanted to join and share a review, but hadn't got sucked into blogging (yet!). I offered to share her review here. So here are Rebekah B.'s thoughts on The Unfinished Song  (Book 6): Blood: I have just finished reading 'Blood' Tara Maya's 6th book in The Unfinished Song series. Once again, Tara had me hooked from the first page and it took tremendous effort to be able to put the book down! I found myself transported into a magical land where the fight of great beauty and colour is raged against fear and darkness. I love Tara's writing style, it flows beautifully and draws you right into the very heart of the tale. This book will keep you on the edge of your seat the whole way through, desperate to see what happens next. The twists and turns in the story were far from predictable to say the least! An absolute must for all

Through the end of today we'll have a total of 10 books discounted to 99 cents. Today I'll be featuring the final 3 books in the promotion. Encrypted Professor Tikaya Komitopis isn’t a great beauty, a fearless warrior, or even someone who can walk and chew chicle at the same time, but her cryptography skills earn her wartime notoriety. When enemy marines show up at her family’s plantation, she expects the worst. But they’re not there to kill her. They need her to decode mysterious runes, and they ask for help in the manner typical of a conquering empire: they kidnap her, threaten her family, and throw her in the brig of their fastest steamship. Her only ally is a fellow prisoner who charms her with a passion for academics as great as her own. Together, they must decipher mind-altering alchemical artifacts, deadly poison r

Dan tapped each dead soldier in the neck in turn, counting his kills for the evening. He came to six. Add in the bottle he was drinking, and he'd be at seven. That was still under budget. He figured this for a twelve-pack night. He waved to the woman tending the tables, a middle-aged matron whose name he hadn't tried to catch. She'd made a few attempts to clear his growing pile of bottles away earlier in the evening, but he'd shooed her off. Dan wanted the physical memory of the drinks sitting right there, like a badge
