Blood of the Sire by Andrea L Staun was beautifully written incorporating characters with very defined personalities and a wondrous world reminiscent of a New Zealand landscape. Kitra, a well aged woman who has spent most of her life secluded in the woods outside of town, is still a follower of the Guardians of old. Yearly, she makes the trek into town to round up offerings to provide the Guardians in respect for their service of the elements. Most ignore the old lady or donate waste as if mocki ...more

I can't even begin to tell you how much I enjoyed this book!

Which have been long forgotten by every one in the town except her and spirals into this great tale about magic, love, faith, hope, healing, and so much more. The characters in this book are developing into people you didn't except when you first meet them and it is exciting to see what they are going t

This book was creative and the story line held my attention to the end. However, it was very heavy on the dialogue, which was tedious. In short, this is no literary masterpiece, but a compelling enough read.
