Overview

Bloodring (Rogue Mage Series #1) by Faith Hunter

In a novel filled with lush imagery and exhilarating action, Faith Hunter creates a near-future world caught in the throes of an ambiguous apocalypse - where a woman with everything to hide finds her true destiny revealed.

As humanity struggles with religious strife and seraphs and demons fight a never-ending battle, a new species has arisen. "Neomages" are human in appearance, but able to twist left-over creation energy to their will. A threat to both humans and seraphs, they are confined in luxurious Enclaves.

Thorn St. Croix is no ordinary neomage. Nearly driven insane by her powers, she is smuggled out of an Enclave and now lives among humans, channeling her gift of stone-magery into jewelry making. But when Thaddeus Bartholomew, a dangerously attractive policeman, tells her that her ex-husband has been kidnapped, Thorn risks revealing her identity to find him. And for Thorn, the punishment for revelation is death.

About the Author

A native of Louisiana, Faith Hunter spent her early years on the bayous and rivers, learning survival skills and the womanly arts. She liked horses, dogs, fishing and crabbing much better than girly skills. She still does.

In grade school, she fell in love with fantasy and science fiction, reading five books a week and wishing she could "write that great stuff." Faith now shares her life with her Renaissance Man and their dogs in a Enclave of their own. Faith is working on a new series, which Roc will publish starting in the summer of 2009, and a role-playing game, called The Rogue Mage, based on Thorn.

Set after the Apocalypse, where Judgement Day arrived, but the world did not end, "Bloodring" follows a rogue neo-mage, Thorn St. Croix, as she tries to hide her heritage among the "normals" that populate what has become of the United States. Thorn St. Croix's magic is with stones, which she incorporates (secretly, of course), into her rock and gem business. When her ex-husband disappears, a very attractive policeman, Thaddeus Bartholomew appears to accuse St. Croix of kidnapping. The resulting search for her ex-husband, complete with appearances of Seraphs, demons, and feats of magic above and beyond what St. Croix knew she was capable of, beyond what any neo-mage should be capable of, is very gripping, and well-written. Save yourself multiple trips to the bookstore, get "Bloodring", "Seraphs" and "Host" all at once; once you start, you'll want them all.

Overall, enjoyable after you get involved in the story. This book was a little tough to get into as the premise was blurry for the first few chapters. Once you become involved with the characters and the future world of the story, it actually was interesting and enjoyable. I would recommend this for anyone who doesn't mind first person, and enjoys sci fi.

This book was a good purchase, the beginning was very hard to get through because it didnt hook my attention but after the first ten pages or so it was good.

I tired of reading about mage heat (a lot) and just when I thought I knew the rules of and limits to her powers along comes more. I guess I'm just a simple man. I want to know the rules up frount and then watch how clever they are to work within those limitions and prevail.

I picked this book at random off the bookstore shelf because its front cover was very appealing. As it turned out, I enjoyed the book much more than I thought I would when I first brought it home. The characters are very real and have multiple dimensions to them. The plot is interesting and kept the pages turning. The end of the book sets itself up for a sequel, which there are several. I can't bring myself to buy the other books in the series but this one was excellent.

Slow start for me but as I wrapped my mind around the subject I became more interested and looking forward to the next book in the series.

I made it up to chapter 7, and gave up on the book.  I found the story boring, and I could not keep up with the different characters or their importance to the story.  I like the Jane Yellowrock series way better.

What did I think? I liked it okay, enough to have moved on to the second book straight away. I like the characters, am interested in seeing where she goes with it. There isn't really any sex to speak of in book one, but in the interest of full & fair disclosure she talks about it plenty. In fact she beats that proverbial dead horse on nearly every page. I'm hoping it isn't quite as "in your face" come book two. It got a bit annoying after a while. Still, I'm really interested to see how this plays out, I haven't quite decided yet what she's trying to say about "religion" in general, and what the deal is with the Seraphim. Good Guys? or Bad Guys? The "dark things" are for sure bad guys...and the Seraphs fight them, but there's still something weird about them.
