A GoodRead
Meh. I've commented before that sometimes these Goodreads giveaways sneak up on you--there have been quite a few where I have to scratch my head and wonder why I ever entered the giveaway for that particular title. There's even been a couple where I've been notified that I won, but have no memory of signing up! Clearly I need to be more careful, and have been putting an effort into doing so. At least in this case I do remember clicking that fateful link, though I can't recall why. This isn't my ...more

The Blood of Titans, written by C. Michael Forsyth, was a very interesting read. The novel combined many elements of the historical romance genre with fantasy, though the fantasy aspect of it offers perhaps less magic and more realism, giving it a pseudo-historical vibe. Overall, this book offers a very atmospherical read, the vivid imagery and lyrical writing perfectly captures the surrounding world, immersing the reader in the story. This is what the book blurb

I don't think I have ever a read a book quite like this one. It captivated me from the very beginning and I found myself many times unwilling to place it down until it was completed. It took me less than a day to finish this, and I have to say in honesty that I wish it had not ended, or that there would at least be a part two of some sort. Blood of Titans tells of a young princess forced to marry a king to help form an alliance in an upcoming war, but when ambushed on the way to her wedding her ...more

I didn't enjoy this one as much as I had hoped. It was very well written on a technical level, but the third person format bothered me for some reason that I can't quite put my finger on. It forced me to keep the characters "at arm's length", thus rendering them bland and preventing me from getting attached.

Read this book last week because I was in the mood for some adventure and some romance. Got both in spades. The world Forsyth creates is lush and captivating with enough suspense to keep you turning the pages in anticipation.
