Separated from his pregnant lover, Aya the Elf, he hopes to complete his mission to the Vryna and the Dwarves, to recruit their people for the cause.

But the Vryna and the Dwarves have their own problems. Villid will have to prove himself in the arena. With the aid of Pearla and Stenn, a Vryna and Dwarf, he will have to show the warring races who their true enemy is.

While Villid is away, his lover is in danger. She carries a child of two different bloods, a child that could fulfill a dark prophecy. And the Drakma knows it. Villid will have to face tough decisions to protect Theldiniya and the elf he loves.

Blood of the Innocent is a great follow up to Blood of the Fallen. Reid raises the stakes in this story, building on the plot with plenty of new twists to reveal. New characters are introduced and the story rushes forward, keeping you turning the page. If you’re a fan of Fantasy, the Blood Scroll series is a great adventure. The ending kept me on the edge of my seat and I am eagerly awaiting the final book to read how this all ends.

You can by Blood of the Innocent from Amazon!

A1c9ZO68mEL._SL1500_On the eve of the Tyran’s attack on a small, Elven village, a Tyran warrior named Villid is approached by a Seer. Villid respects the Seer and listens to the old man’s prediction that cataclysm will befall the world if the Tyrans kill the Elven seer. But the Tyran warleader is bent on exterminating the elves. Villid’s loyalties are torn and he makes a fateful decision.

Aya is a young, Elven woman, an acolyte of the Elven seer helping her village get ready for a festival. But horror descends as the Tyrans attack, and Aya finds herself saved by a Tyran warrior. Forced to join with Villid, the pair are hunted by the Tyrans as they search for the Elven seer. But enmity burns in Aya’s heart. Her people were just butchered by Villid’s. Can they work together, or will their races bitter history drive them apart?

Blood of the Fallen is a fun read. Villid is torn between his loyalty to his people and his loyalty to the Seer, forced to make a moral decision. Aya starts out as a weaker character, the innocent waif, but she gets her eyes opened by the far more world-wise Villid as the pair are both the hunters and the hunted. The plot takes a number of twists and turns and at the end, I was left wondering what would happen next.

Poppy Reid’s first book might not be the most original fantasy plot, but it is written with heart and with characters that you’ll come to care for. I enjoyed this book immensely. Poppy is just starting out, but I know she’ll have a great writing career ahead of her. So if you love a fun Fantasy with great characters, you’ll love Blood of the Fallen!

You can pick up Blood of the FallenĀ  from Amazon and Amazon UK
