REVIEW Bloodring

The earth has plunged into an ice age and seraphs and demons fight a never ending battle while religious strife rages among the surviving humansThorn St Croix is no ordinary neomage All the others of her king mages who can twist leftover creation energy to their will were gathered together into Enclaves long ago There they live in luxurious confinement isolated from humans and exploited for their magic When Thorn's powers. 45 stars Too much telling but a credible debut novelAlthough a little confusing at times the world building in Faith Hunter s debut novel is superb There is a lot of telling but for all that it is filled with the flashes of the brilliance we see in her Jane Yellowrock and Soulwood series It is easy to see that this is her early work A very different dystopian with seraphs angels and demons The church is in ascendance and there are many biblical references and uotes of scripture It is illegal to blaspheme with harsh conseuences if reported to the clerics Thorn St Croix is an unregistered stone mage in Mineral City Her ex husband the brother of her best friend is kidnapped Thorn is drawn in against her will and comes to the attention of the authorities local townspeople and the seraphs who rule with iron cruelty

In a novel filled with exhilarating action and lush imagery Faith Hunter portrays a near future world caught in the throes of an ambiguous apocalypse where a woman with everything to hide finds her destiny revealedNo one thought the apocalypse would be like this The world didn't end And the appearance of seraphs heralded three plagues and a devastating war between the forces of good and evil More than a hundred years later. 35 stars but rounding up for the apocalyptic ice age setting which sounds pretty nice right about now what with the last election we re ever gonna have coming up and the world ending shortly thereafter Just kiddingAnyhowThis book is a unusual blend of almost everything I like to see in urban fantasy with the exception of angels and biblical tie ins Am not a fan of angels and even less a fan of angels biblical things Though here they aren t too heavy handedThe writing is decent albeit slow in the beginning but you get used to it as you read on The characters are okay as are the plot and mythology There s a good amount of government conspiracy theories to give the story a futuristic sci fi feel and everything else is decent and interesting enough that I ll most likely finish the trilogy It ll take some time getting there but as I ve learned this book and most likely this whole trilogy is meant to be taken slowly with freuent breaks in betweenThe one thing that made this book stand out among the hundreds or hundreds of thousands of urban fantasies of its kind many of which I passed on simply because they looked too much like something I d seen or read before is the setting It s an endless bitterly cold winter A refreshing break from the usual dark and dank magical urban settingsThis is a world buried under a ton of snow and hasn t seen any seasonal changes since the apocalyptic ice age hit No one alive remembers the seasons changing They speak of warm weather as though it s a myth because all they know is winter I find that most intriguing because the way things are going we might one day speak of cold weather the way these people speak of the myth that was summerOverall a good story with a slow burn though not one I d recommend unless you re looking for something fairly different but still somewhat the same on the urban fantasy shelfFuller review at

    A 4'10 female riding a Fresian? A stallion no less? Granted they aren't hot blooded but I'm still struggling with the practicality of that combination And likewise someone else riding a Clydesdale snorts Don't get me wrong it's done But it is far from practical far from comfortable especially traveling long distances It's like straddling an oil drumThis is one of those instances where it really does pay to stay within the bounds
