New review for Blood Reign from TRS!

Tascryn: Blood Reign
L. Shannon
Paranormal romance
Available from Cobblestone Press
ISBN: 9781600880933
January 2007

Sadrina and Pahele have a “complicated” past. Sadrina was held prisoner for 4000 years partially at the hands of Pahele. Later, he aids in her rescue at great detriment to himself and his happiness. Now, Sadrina has returned to beg a favor of him -- to save her beloved son. Pahele is happy to give her everything she desires but this comes at a steep price for Pahele wants Sadrina to remain by his side as his Queen and his mate.

L. Shannon’s Blood Reign is a captivating story from start to finish. To say that this cast of characters is interesting is to vastly understate how amazing they really were. I admired Sadrina for her courage in the face of the challenges that confronted her. Throughout the book, she really comes into her own especially when she had to stand up to the ultimate villainess, Hel. Pahele is ruler of his realm yet he exhibits traits of humility and kindness balanced with his sometimes domineering personality. Pahele and Sadrina’s passion and love thrives after Sadrina forgives Pahele for his part in her imprisonment. Their love making is ardent, tender and soul-shattering.

Though I did not realize it at first, Blood Reign is a sequel to Of Blood and Blessings. I recommend reading both lest you find yourself lost in the cast of characters and events that preceded this book.

One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people. He said, "My son, the battle is between two "wolves" inside us all...

One is Evil.

It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.

The other is Good.

It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith.

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather: "Which wolf wins?"
The old Cherokee simply replied, "The one you feed."

Websurfing Wednesday...oh my!

As some know I have dogs. And with them come all my doggie friends who are just as into dog central events like conformation, obedience and agility. These people tend to love their dogs more than most others can even imagine. They do things like moving to the country so the dogs can have a bigger yard. Or changing jobs so that they have their weekends off for travelling to shows.

They also tend to have rather warped senses of humor... Here is an example that had me laughing hard enough I fell out of my computer chair.

NANO update- I'm at 20,000 words. :)
