I'm excited to announce that the third novel in the Young Adult SFF Lisen of Solsta series, Blooded has won the Indie Reader Discovery Award, just as the first two books in the series, Fractured and Tainted, did.
Racked by guilt after committing an act of vengeance at the end of Tainted, Lisen steps reluctantly into her role as Empir Ariannas inBlooded. In order to face the resulting personal devastation alone, she must harden her soul. When Lisen is kidnapped, she and her captain reunite briefly. But Korin cannot bring himself to reveal the consequences of their moment of passion in the Farii to her, leaving Lisen blind to the truth as the two of them once again glance off one another unable to admit their feelings.
Will Korin relent and reveal the secret he’s hidden from her? Will Lisen learn how to forgive herself for her self-perceived sins? Will she discover in her friends a sense of the family support she once felt on Earth? Will she ever feel anything but alone again? Or will the nightmare of reality overwhelm her as the story concludes in this final volume? In a story that brings traitors to justice and two opposing lands to an inevitable confrontation, Blooded completes the Lisen of Solsta trilogy.
IR Verdict: Through relatable and flawed characters, rich world-building, and the exploration of profound themes through captivating prose, St. Martin has again created a gripping work of fantasy sure to resonate with readers of all ages.
