Review: Dragon Blood – Patricia Briggs

As the rebellion grows against High King Jakoven, Ward, ruler of Hurog, realizes he must join with the rebels. However, Jakoven can crush his enemies with dragon’s blood. The very blood that courses through Ward’s veins.
My thoughts:
Ok so I started this one right after having finished book 1 and it takes place 4 years after the events in book 1. The book was not as good, but then all the things that were new and shiny then, were not new and shiny here anymore. But hey it was still a good book that I read in a day.
Ward is rebuilding Hurog and is staying away from the wicked king Jakoven. But  the king is the baddie in this one so he comes after Ward. Civil war is close to breaking out and things are not good…*music of doom*
Ward is a true hero, and then I mean hero as in the word hero. If someone is on trouble he will help them. He is the best Lord there can be. Well after they got over the Ward is not simpleton thing 😉
People are finding their way in this book. The land around Hurog is free from the curse and I kept waiting for Jakoven to get thrown down. An icky king. Icky is too sweet a word but I do not wanna give away any spoilers.
Conclusion:
And now I want the rest of Brigg’s fantasy books. I am slowly going through them all. Only 3 more now.

    Great review. I'm so happy that you are really enjoying this series and that you're ready to read the rest. 🙂 I'm excited to see how the rest of them unfold for you, especially since you were apprehensive of reading her work at first!

    I of course love the Mercy Thompson series but I haven't read any of her fantasy books. It's a shame this one isn't quite as good as the first, but it still sounds like a solid read!

    Great review Blodeuedd, you certainly make me consider reading those books soon. I have most of the ebooks, and one or two in paper.

    Ok, you're totally inspiring me to go on a Patricia Briggs fantasy reading binge now. 🙂 I love Mercy, and I'm really curious to see if I'll like her fantasy too. Great review!
