Book Review
Reviewed by Anne B. for

Bloodmaiden takes places in a realm called Sulamin. Sulamin is divided into four regions with each region ruled by a group of dragons. In three of the kingdoms, the dragons and people live happily together. In Tynan the dragons are cruel and demand much of the people, including blood sacrifice of the chosen one, the Quelda. The new Quelda of Tynan, Crislin and her young husband, Chalmon, have only one chance to live. They must escape Tynan and gain the assistance of the dragons in the other three regions. Their journey is not an easy one, nor is it without danger. Along the way they meet many friends, sprites, dragons and nymphs. Among the dangers they must conqueror are a frozen lake, mountain creatures that try to step on them and a sphinx that demands answers to riddles. The fate of Crislin’s people is in her hands.

Bloodmaiden is a Christian Fantasy novel. It has all of the right elements for an excellent read: conflict, supernatural powers, and dragons with velvety wings, tears, and smiles. This book is very descriptive. I could see the dragons as they hung from the ceiling. I could see the beauty of the frozen lake, the mountains, and the caves. Author Christine Schulze took time to develop all of the characters including the secondary ones. She threw in some unexpected plot twists. Earlier I mentioned the riddles. They were fun. I could answer a few, but they were not easy. I thought they added much to the plot. I would recommend this book for 12 and up. I found this book fascinating and will look for more books by this author.

Lucinda I would have to completely agree with you, although in regards to the age i am an adult & i still apsolutely loved it; as a PDF file on my computer i had no idea reading it that it actually was a 'childrens book'!! x
