Bloodsworn by Scott Reintgen

When I received the email inviting me to apply for this tour, I didn’t know anything about Scott Reintgen or the Ashlords duology, but I saw a gorgeous Friesian-looking horse and a genre label of fantasy and had to check it out. I was hesitant to apply knowing it was a second book and that the tour would not be providing the first, but fortunately a library I have access to through Libby had both ebook and audiobook licenses of Ashlords, the first book, available. I flew through my listening experience of Ashlords, rated it 5 stars with a rave review, and shamelessly begged to be granted a spot on the tour on whatever date was available in the comment box at the end of the application form. I had to know how this story concluded, and as a book blogger, I wanted to share my love for this story with a wide audience. Now that I have experienced Blood Sworn I can confidently say that I am not disappointed in the least, Reintgen has does it again, and I give the whole duilogy 5 stars!

This Golden Flame

The Scriptorium plucks orphaned children off the streets and puts them to work to serve their goals, all of which funnel into the primary goal of awakening the world’s slumbering atomatons. Karis is one of those orphans, and she’s been studying the runes she copies for her masters to work with. Her brother was culled from this island’s group and sent elsewhere, and her one mission in life is to get off the island and find him. When Karis discovers an unexplored cave and within it finds an automaton like no other, and awakens him, she dares to hope that she’s solved all her problems. This atomaton can get her into the records hall and then off the island. What she didn’t anticipate was discovering that this Atamoton, Alix, is more than a mindless machine controlled by runes in a tome.
