Divine Blood by Beck Michaels

Cassiel.. Zev.. Rawn..Ok I see now why I see this cover/book in everyone’s top 10 bookstacks and reels! It would’ve definitely been in mine if I had read faster! Love love love!

Wow- Dynalya is such a beautiful name/person! She attracts Guardians like no one’s business. I had no idea where we were going when we first met but wow did we go on a journey. 

On a quest to save her village from a long ago self-inflicted demon that visits and takes children, stuff of nightmares. She thinks she may have found the key and a map. Though on her journey she keeps stumbling into new interesting characters that have their own reasons for helping since they all are searching for the same mysterious location. I love when stories layer on top and new characters bring more depth and knowledge of the area and histories, since Dyna was sheltered in a, hidden by magic, village her whole life, we are learning with her.

I loved how the main characters were all of mixed magical heritages though that made them all unaccepted in their village, kingdom, pack… and so on. The kindred spirit they found in each other is beautiful. These are my favorites, the outcasts with the unexpected powers that are so much powerful because of the two heritages. And we should celebrate those differences and not shun, social message. Technically at this point with genetic tests you can tell that no one is pure anything.

Tarn is an evil prick but I feel so bad for Von and Yavi! Can they get a happily ever after? Can Von be a Guardian too? I can’t wait to meet the other Guardians. OMG the ending was amazing! And I can’t wait for the cover reveal this week for Bonded Fate and to read it of course!! I’m sure it will also be a 5 star read! 

This will be a book hangover for sure!!!

Rating: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 I recommend for those who love questing, self-discovery, strong females characters, underdogs, found families, MAGIC!

Thank you @beckmichaels for the gorgeous book! This is obviously my honest review. I filed out a google doc when you had some copies with errors in the quality. I saw nothing wrong with my copy or at least to my standards😉

Goodreads synopsis:

The Shadow demon nearly took everything from Dynalya Astron, and it would soon return for more. When she discovers a way to fight back, she must go on a perilous journey and risk it all for those she holds dear.

Along the way, she meets Cassiel, a Celestial Prince with magic blood and wings as black as his heart. He wants nothing to do with Dyna until he learns she could lead him to a place he has been searching for all his life.

But reaching their destination is not as easy as they thought, nor are they the only ones who search for it. With danger at every turn and harrowing secrets between them, the quest will require much more than determination. They must fight for what they desire—or die trying.

For fans of Throne of Glass, The Cruel Prince, and The Lord of the Rings comes Beck Michael’s debut novel with remarkable characters, a budding romance, and gripping action. Divine Blood is the first book of an Epic Dark Fantasy series that explores the depths of loss, acceptance, and the true meaning of courage.
