Brilliant! I think you will love it Ella.


Ella Sloat | 17 comments I already do and have not opened it yet. I know once I do there's no turning back and I need to make sure I'm all snacked up and comfortable too

Good idea to be prepared before starting. It will prove hard to put down once started :).


Marielle (marielle_ooms) I pre ordered it but it still isn't here!!!! 😱😱😱

Question: Is Drem suffering from anxiety and why is that? His panic attacks make me have a panic attack and freak out every time. The fact that he checks his pulse every 5 seconds is concerning... I'm not yet done with the book, just at page 277 but I was just wondering..

Hi Ella, the character Drem is based on my little brother William, who is on the autistic spectrum. Checking his pulse is a sign of comfort, and Dad really wanted to write about someone with these characteristics. Hope this helps! Glad you enjoyed A TIME OF BLOOD.

Great that you enjoyed it. Cannot wait for A Time of Courage to be written :)

Did you have any favourite character?

Ella Sloat | 17 comments I believe Drem was the one that left an impression the most from the newest characters. He is a humble man, simple and although he was leaning more toward naive at the beginning of the book he forcefully matured into a strong, loyal man. I can tell he's not fully matured but looking back I think the majority of the main characters have gone through some distress or major changes that have forced them to do that. So Drem.

Drem developed the most in my opinion! I loved seeing old characters I loved again, and I also really enjoyed Bleda's scenes. Not to tease but I must say Book 3 A TIME OF COURAGE is bigger and better! ;)

Ella Sloat | 17 comments I would said the bigger the better.. I love books that come in 400+ pages. Oh yes Bleda. I totally forgot about him. I do like him too. He's strong and agile, a man after his own mother's heart. I think Drem and Bleda could have a strong friendship.

It is an epic finish both in size and scale of conflict. I think Bleda and Drem would get on well. Both honest and straight to the point. Value loyalty and moral decisions. Would be great together.

Ella Sloat | 17 comments I am really excited a out the 3rd book, sad that is the last but happy to see how everyone is doing, like old friends that you haven't seen for a while. There's so much conflict right now, so much going on that I'm alot nervous too.

Waiting to be reunited. Want to see them again but don't want any harm to come to the characters in doing so. Knowing The Faithful and the Fallen and the first two in Of Blood and Bone, there will be some tearful goodbyes...

I have A Time Of Dread on Audible. I think it was in a sale. I have A Time Of Blood and Malice on my wish list! I hope they put the rest of them out in Audible. I own all the paperbacks of the books but I like to get them on Audible too. And of course on kindle when they go on sale! I’m a bit crazy 😃
