"Silverblood Scion" by Megan Mackie

Silverblood Scion (Amazon Link)

Elaine is the last Scion of Isa. She is the last one alive who carries both Isa's blood and thus a remnant of her power. Unfortunately, she is being sacrificed in an attempt to make a bargain with Acies, the Demon Lord of War by a man named Dakin in order to gain power. However, it doesn't seem to work the way Dakin and the priests expect. And instead, Acies strikes a deal with Elaine that binds them together and saves her life.

Now, the Demon Lord of War is once again living in their world, and while most would assume that to be a bad thing, from what I as a reader can see, it may wind up being the only way to save their world from a great number of other threats. And just possibly, it may be the means of returning the goddess Isa to their world. The only problem with that hope currently, is that Acies wants revenge upon Isa for having imprisoned him in a void and leaving him there for centuries to die a slow death.

I received and read a review copy of this book. I really enjoyed reading this story and am expecting that there is much more going on than any of the characters realize. I can't wait to see what happens in the next book in this series. I have a few guesses about what will happen as well as what I think may have actually happened to both Acies and Isa, but they are just my guesses based on what I read in this book. As such, they could just as likely be wrong.

Either way, I am very much looking forward to getting the chance to read book 2 in this series to see how close or how far off my guesses wind up being. But I'm not going to spoil the story for you. You'll just need to pick up a copy and read it yourself if you want to know more.

If you enjoy epic fantasy involving gods and their descendants, magic, and demons, then I believe you'll enjoy this book.

This book may also be available through:
