Summary

She’s a misfit, a genetic mistake on Iskonia. Iliria’s clan uncle was a criminal, which kept her hoped for introduction into society from happening. His business partner wants compensation and plans to sell her. Iliria escapes into a female only sect and goes into a retreat on a backward planet. She is in disgrace and fears being kidnapped. Can she find peace and a new life on Nizad?
He’s head of security on Nizad and wants to keep his job. Drk feels conflicted. As head of security for the closed planet, his job is to keep the peace, not get tangled up in attraction to beaten-down young females. Then two of the beautiful girl’s race arrive on the closed planet without the proper paperwork. Drk’s trouble radar buzzes. With no reason to be on Nizad, what are the two Iskonians planning? Is the young female the reason? Are pirates involved?

My Review

5/5 Stars

Opening with plenty of mystery and intrigue, I fell in love with this new addition to the S.U.N. universe from page one. I really found myself feeling for Illiria. Living in the wake of her uncle’s shame has made it so that she can’t live the life she’s always dreamed of. Her best chance of keeping her life her own is to go into hiding. But does she have what it takes?

The other main character, Drk, was easy to root for as well. The bond between him and his mother was an interesting one that really helped to strengthen him. It seems so rare to read a story with strong parental influence, so I really liked this aspect.

All in all, The Bloody Stone is a read perfect for fans of fantasy, romance, and suspense.

Proud author responsible for Dead by Morning and The Council, fascinated by the dark and macabre. Stephen King is her all time inspiration mixed in with a little bit of Eminem and some faint remnants of the works of Edgar Allen Poe. When she began writing, she started in horror but it somehow drifted into thriller. She loves the 1988 movie Heathers. She was born and raised in Michigan but traveled across the country to where she currently resides in Texas.
