Review: Blood of Kaos - JD Miller

Reviewer: Bex
Rating: 3 out of 5 Fairies
Blood of Kaos is a creative read filled with originality and a range of fascinating plot developments. The story pushes along nicely, with lots of action and a range of character descriptions.

Being first person, we are really able to understand the main character and understand her thought process and the influences driving the character. I enjoy first person narratives, so this was an aspect that worked well for the story.

The writing, while descriptive, has a naïve quality to it. With polish and a little more experience in the craft, this could be a superb book. The author has real potential. I will definitely keep a close eye on this author, as I think with time, she could offer something fabulous.
***I have since learned that Blood of Kaos will soon be going through an overhaul. I would be keen to reread a fresh, polished copy.***

In one night, Etain is torn from a world of childish innocence to be plunged into a realm of deadly chaos. Forced to run for her life, she stumbles into the realm of the Alamir, human warriors infused with powerful magic who defend the delicate balance between good and evil. But not even the Alamir can protect her from the Bok’Na’Ra pursuer that murdered her family.

Lord Darknight and Midir, raised as brothers, are the light and the dark of a single soul, split apart by ancient priests when but a child. Midir has known of Etain’s existence most of her life and has conspired to possess the power she holds, power that will give him reign over the evil Bok’Na’Ra, nemesis of the Alamir. Lord Darknight, Dar to those closest to him, unaware of her existence, rescues the young woman after a violent clan battle which proves to be a pivotal moment in both their lives. His charge as a Krymerian mandates he protect and train her in the ways of a warrior however soon realizes their connection runs much deeper than teacher to student.

Old friends reunite and unexpected alliances are forged as Midir’s thirst for power escalates. It will take the courage of an Alamir, combined with the strength of a Krymerian, to battle the dark brother’s rising influence over the Bok’Na’Ra while, at the same time, will test a passionate bond too powerful to ignore.
