    "It matters not from whence the blood flows. So long as it does flow."

    As the story opens, Valkia has lived but ten years. She is the pride and joy of her father, Chieftain Merroc. Though considered to still be too young for it, she becomes a shield bearer and fights for her people, the Schwarzvolf. Valkia knows only unending warfare. Once Valkia seizes power for herself, she becomes the leader of the tribe. The warrior queen begins to strengthen her people by conquering and absorbing the other tribes under a single banner. Valkia becomes the acknowledged champion of Khorne, the Blood God. After defeating Locephax, Demon Prince of Slaanesh, Valkia nails the demon’s living head onto her shield and vows to travel North, to the lands of the gods, and place the trophy at the base of Khorne’s skull-throne herself. Valkia is in sight of her goal, mere steps away from her lord, when betrayal causes her to fall. But Valkia hold the patronage of the Ruinous Powers, and Khorne will not allow death to flee with his chosen queen. Khorne’s consort emerges reborn. She is the right arm of slaughter personified. With Khorne’s blessing, his unholy queen will lead her new dark army into battle. As for the Schwarzvolf, vengeance comes. ***** FIVE STARS! This author holds back no punches as she tells, in detail, about the life of Valkia the Bloody. From almost the very beginning, every page rings with the loud sounds of battle, whooping war cries, and the moans of the dying. Women and children are slaughtered more than once, but those massacres are not too graphic. They are mainly implied. (Such as Valkia sending her right hand out to locate the caves in which they are hiding and to kill them all.) Still, if you have an imagination as vivid as mine, it is grizzly. (Hey, I blame my imagination on gaming. Due to all the D&D and on-line MMORPGs, it has become quite fertile.) Sarah Cawkwell has an intense writing style. Almost manic. Being within Valkia’s mind for several hours left me craving for the next battle. After all: “It matters not from whence the blood flows. So long as it does flow.” ***** Reviewed by Detra Fitch of Huntress Reviews
