Overview

For hundreds of years, the bestial Grol have clawed at the walls of Lathah without success. Now armed with O'hra, mystical weapons of great power, they have returned, to conquer.

Witness to the Grol advance, Arrin can abide his exile no longer. He returns to Lathah, in defiance of death, with hopes to save his beloved princess and the child born of their illicit affair. He finds her unwilling to abandon her people. At her behest, Arrin searches for a sanctuary for them only to be confronted by the Sha'ree, a powerful race long thought gone from the world. Through them, he learns it is not just the Grol that threaten the land.

Empowered by a magic never before seen, the savage nations spread chaos and ruin across the realm. With Lathah under siege, and the world on the brink of cataclysmic war, Arrin must strike a deal with the Sha'ree to take the fight to the Grol, or forever lose his one true love: his family.

The Grol, a monstrous race that has long sought to overrun and destroy the fortified city-state of Lathah, now appears to have the mystical weapons they need to do it. Unfortunately, no one in Lathah is willing to believe that the Grol can now succeed where they failed before, and it is up to an exiled, disgraced former royal guard named Arrin to somehow convince them of the threat--or, failing to do that, to find allies to stand with Lathah in its hour of need. This is the first book in Tim Marquitz's epic Blood War Trilogy, more grim and brutal in tone than you'd find in his Demon Squad series. It's set on a complex world with a lot of layers and twists that held my interest, and more than enough bloody and gruesome battle scenes to give it a very visceral kick. I'm looking forward to seeing how things get worse for the protagonists in the next volume.

I was pleasantly surprised by this book. I am not a typical futuristic romance reader, but this book kept me interested. There was never the obligatory bore slow portion of this book. It was fast paced, funny, and all around entertaining. Loved the characters and the scenery. It proved to have lovely balance.

669 nook pages. I can not believe this was free. Action and magic galour. However this did not take away from a great story line, with a huge cast of characters that were easy to follow. Seems their are five races of dominant society creatures in this world, where man is one of them, not the dominant race. Someone has gotten it into their head to start a race war of barbaric portions. Book one bring us a full cast and their initial struggles to undrrstand the situation, and start to find a migical means to fight back. Loved this book

Excellent book! Best one of this genre I've read in quite a while. Right before starting this one, I stopped reading 3 books that were not up to snuff, but this one kept my attention and anticipating the next one. It was free, but I would pay for this one and others of this quality.

The bar for a 5 star rating at B&N is in the basement. The concept was fair, the writing passable but in need of editing. I could not finish despite being less than a hundred pages to the end. I believe wordy blah with bad character and place names sums things up for me

I didnt like this. The main character spends most of his time in flash backs. Everything is too wordy.
