My mini-review can also be found on my blog Collections.

It's been over a year since I read book two in Rhiannon Hart's Lharmell trilogy. With it's devastating cliffhanger, it's been a long wait for the final book Blood Queen. Thankfully it looks like it will be published next year, and I'm already counting down the days to the release.

In the meantime, the author has recently given readers Blood Phantom, a prequel novella to the series from Rodden Lothskorn's perspective. I've loved Rodden since

What wonderful prequel for the series Blood Phantom is! Taking place just before and a little into the beginning of Blood Song, Rhiannon has given us a rare glimpse into the enigma that is Rodden Lothskorn — his loneliness, his driven nature, his struggles, his frustrations, who he is and want he wants — as he tirelessly works to find an edge over the ever-increasing Lharmellin threat that’s descending upon his world. It’s fantastic and enlightening character development for Rodden, and it’

BLOOD PHANTOM is a short story, 15 pages, and a prequel to Blood Song – the first book in the Lharmell series. Told from the King’s chief advisor Rodden Lothskorn's perspective – it helps us get to know Rodden a bit better and even Prince Amis, although I still think he’s a bit soppy. I have book two, Blood Storm, in my TBR pile which I plan on pulling out and reading just before the release of the final book in April – Blood Queen. Because it is a short story – a teaser if you will – it is a qu ...more

An excellent short story to get the reader back in the Lharmell headspace and ready for book three.

Blood Phantom is the prequel to the first book in the Lharmell series Blood Song. The story is told from Rodden's perspective and is set in the period just before, and at the start of, the events in Blood Song.

As you would expect from a short story, this is a quick read and not too in depth. There is no major plot development or story reveals here. It is short, sweet, and gives us a glimpse into the world of Rodden and Amis.

There are a couple of story nuggets revealed that help us understand Rod
3.5 stars

Blood Phantom is the short story prequel to the first book in the Lharmell series, Blood Song. I kid you not this is one highly addictive series and after Blood Storm and that ending I had serious withdrawals so Blood Phantom was a short, sweet 'fix' of Lharmell ... just enough to have me salivating for the final installment, Blood Queen.

It was great to get inside the enigmatic Rodden's head, get a glimpse of things from his perspective and I just love his dry sense of humour. I enjoye

This short story took me back to the beginning and listening to it from Rodden's POV was a tasty little reminder of everything that has happened and everything that is still to happen! Zeraphina was always one of my favourite characters and this story shows us how Rodden first 'met' her. It was good to hear his uncertainty but yet still feel his pull to Zeraphina. And it made me smile listening to Prince Amis who was practically giddy with the prospect of falling in love with Lilith. Ahhh, the m ...more
This short novella gives us a brief glance into Rodden’s life before Zeraphina. I’ve always liked Rodden and I’m so pleased that Rhiannon Hart gave us this short story from his point of view. From the castle as Amis’ best friend and advisor right up till finding Zeraphina and learning what she is – this is a great addition to the Lharmell series. Roddin is the same amazing character that I liked from Blood Song and Blood Storm but seeing the world from his eyes – just made him more well rounded ...more

This is a series review! Blood Phantom is Rodden's POV of right before Blood song and a good insight to the mysterious beginning. The mystery of the plot and chemistry between all the characters just draws you in. All of the characters have flaws and redeeming qualities. It was fascinating to see them grow yet still retain some of the original flaws - ones they are well aware they have. The world is a fantastical setting that feels real. Countries are poor or rich each with their own climate and ...more

Blood Phantom is a fun, short prequel to Rhiannon Hart's Lharmell series. It transfers POV to Rodden and we get an intriguing glimpse of his back story, ending with the moment he discovers Zeraphina (when book one in the series starts).

At 15 pages it is a very short read and that was my only gripe - I wished it had been longer! Still, it was a nice little peek into Rodden's character and motivations and it certainly whets the appetite for the third book which will be released in 2014.

Blood Phantom is a great addition to the Llarmell series. This novella is from Rodden's point of view, and it was great being able to get inside his head and understand such a mysterious character a little more. In addition to this, the overlapping events with the beginning of Blood Song provided a lot of insight.

Rhiannon Hart remembers writing before she could read, puzzling over the strange squiggles in Jeremiah and the Dark Woods by Janet and Alan Ahlberg and putting her own words in their places. Her first love was Jareth the Goblin King at the tender age of eight. She wrote fan fiction in high school but she'd never admit to it out loud, so don't ask. When she's not reading or writing she is belly dan ...more
