#Review of Queen of Blood by Jill Myles

For one hundred years, Seri’s people have lived under the thumb of the Blood, the cruel and mysterious rulers of Athon. Seri wants nothing more than to put food on the table and marry the hotheaded but handsome Rilen come spring. But when a noblewoman asks Seri to be her handmaiden, Rilen insists she move to the enemy’s castle . . . and spy on the newly arrived prince.

Prince Graeme has grown weary of his family’s curse. The Blood are powerful and immortal, but doomed to live in the shadows, flitting from lover to lover, always in search of the mythic Eterna—the one woman who will sate their hunger. Now his father has sent him to the outskirts of the empire to stamp out a rebellious Vidari faction. But when a wild and alluring Vidari girl shows up at court, he finds himself torn between following his father’s orders and following his heart . . .

A war is brewing between Athonite and Vidari, between Blood and man. As uprisings sweep through the land, Seri and Graeme find themselves at the center of a storm with only one choice: betray each other, or betray their people.
 
 About the Author

Biography

Jill Myles is a pen name for New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author Jessica Clare. As Jessica Clare, she writes erotic contemporary romance. As Jessica Sims, she writes fun, sexy shifter paranormals. She also has a third pen name, because three is more fun than two. 

As Jill Myles, she writes a little bit of everything, from sexy, comedic urban fantasy to fairy tales gone wrong. Basically, the Jill Myles books are a melting pot of silliness, sexiness, and fun. Which is awesome.

Jill/Jessica (Jillessica!) lives in a teeny tiny town in North Texas that has no Starbucks, which is a cruel and unusual punishment. She spends her time with her husband, pets, and Keurig. Because, coffee = love.



I so wanted to love this book. The blurb was just one of those that pulls you right in and hook, line, sinker, your totally transfixed. Unfortunately, this book wasn't for me. It hardly pulled me in like the blurb had. At times, I felt that the plot was drying, and I was drowning in boredom. Though it had promise from the beginning, I just couldn't bring myself to continue reading to the end.
