Bound By Blood: The Awakening

The Crone’s job is to help the young learn of the past. She is the only one that can still read the writings that are literally written, on the walls. The people she teaches were not always from this dimension of Earth that they now inhabit. How did they end up here? What happened to the placed they came from? All the secrets began during the Age of Dusk.
 
Samanthra Lampir is one of seven sisters, born under the same stars on the same night. They are raised in separate Realms on the insistence of their father. His reasoning for doing this is so that he can maintain control of Samanthra and hopefully keep her from experiencing her Awakening. He is hoping to stop the “curse” from befalling her. Or is he?
 
They are all getting together to travel for the festival of Beal-Tene. As High Priestess, Samanthra would never miss this celebration. Even though there is a major storm brewing and her father has forbidden the girls from attending, they set out to go anyway.
 
Storm and danger follow Samanthra and her sisters as they go to the festival. Why does it seem as if her dreams are going to come true now? Who is this Dareus and why is it he keeps showing up where she is at. First her dreams, then the pub, and now at the festival grounds, why did he lay claim to her? And exactly why is her father so afraid of her Awakening?
 
Bound by Blood the Awakening is an intriguing read. It contains beautifully written poetry, along with a compelling story. It took a little bit to get into the story but once I did I was totally enthralled. The twists and turns will keep you on your toes. The format is rough, and it makes the story look a lot longer than it is. But, it is most definitely worth the time it takes to read.

Book Blurb for Bound By Blood: The Awakening

There was a time within the awakening of the world TERAH when mortal and immortal lived together in harmony. Realms opened to other realms. Portals were but an open entrance to the next dimension, doorways which were never closed. When the Great Goddess was heard clearly and had voice, the Great God looked proudly down upon this entire world and had for it an ear. Such things were known and cherished in the initiation of the world TERAH. Such things are forgotten about now-- by some but not all. Some remember them always.

Samanthra Lampir is High Priestess of twelve powerful and ancient bloodlines, which consist of Strygi, a type of immortal vampire-- and Lycãon, a wolf sharing soul with a male or female human. She has great respect for the Old Ways and their laws. It was her vow when she took her title to restore them to her people. But alas, it seems that the Evil bloodlines, which desire the destruction of her world and its realms have become stronger. Her bloodlines are becoming extinct. And the Awakening that she has struggled to prevent because of an age long curse has been triggered, by the return of someone even more cursed…Dareus Dracura, the thirteenth bloodline, Father of the Blood.

Dareus returns to TERAH to find his bloodlines and their realms attacked by an unseen and unnamable force. He is the only one who can protect them, restore them and end this phase of madness and destruction. But in order to do so, he needs his High Priestess at her full power. The problem is that she will not welcome what all others before her have willingly, an Awakening-- which he deems will free her and she deems will be her end, and the end of those she loves most.

Can they find the source of Evil’s power, the Dark Matter, before it is too late? How many realms and lives will die before they do? Will Samanthra Awaken, and if she does, what will become of her and those who will be affected by the curse? Will Dareus even give her a choice for the sake of his blood?

Enter a world before Earth was even thought of. Discover the master bloodlines and the missing link to what humans are now. Walk through the pagães of time without becoming trapped by its enchantment-- or can you? Awaken within yourself what those in this novel must first awaken in themselves. Discover the past of TERAH and the true beginning of all things which existed and still exist, if you can handle such truths-- can you? If you can then let your journey begin!
