Review: The Bloodbound by Erin Lindsey

May Contain Spoilers

Review:

The Bloodbound appeared in my mailbox about a month ago.  Until I had received an email from the publisher, I had never heard of it, and that’s extremely unusual when it comes to fantasy novels.  I am like a Bloodhound; I relentlessly sniff out new titles, especially when they contain romance elements and aren’t part of an already ongoing series.  And look at the cover?  Protagonist Alix is wearing plate mail and wielding a sword, with barely any flesh exposed.  Finally, a female warrior who looks like she’s actually ready to fight and not pose for the swim suit issue of Sports Illustrated.   Better yet, she actually kicks ass!  She saves her king, Erik, not once, but many times, placing herself at risk of imminent death each and every time.  She’s both physically and mentally tough.  Hooray!
