Blood Duty

*I won a free copy of this e-book in a LibraryThing Member Giveaway *

this is the 3rd book I won and read from J.R. Tomlin, and it amazes me that she choose to specialize in this genre of books. There are some typographical errors, though nevertheless, you could still read the story without further hindrances. the story is well-built to the point that the readers could finally believe what's going on and the atmosphere it created.

Although, I agree that this one had somewhat characters which are not really that remarkable, or in other words, they just stay who they are, never moving, never improving. And yeah i notice the bad guys too, their motives had never been clearly identified, though maybe the author could provide us a sequel or a prequel. I think what lacks in this story , is the history of it, because a reader could not fully comprehend the series of events, if he hadn't known first what this is all about.

Ixich, huge demons summoned through a savage blood ritual, lead an army through a mountain pass, slaughtering all who would stand in their way. Tamra, Captain of the Guard of Wayfare Keep, and an allied army from the city of Madrian mount a desperate defense against the onrushing enemy. When their army is defeated and her lover is lost in the battle, Tamra is devastated but must somehow struggle on.

Even worse lies ahead as the secrets of her past come to light and her loyalty is tested. Yet, she must protect all those who trust her against the ixich horde. In her darkest hour, haunted by loss and with defeat imminent, can Tamra fulfill that trust and do her blood duty? ( )
