BLOODLUST - Humans and Dwarves

Yesterday, I talked a little about the barbarians and goliaths in the world of Bloodlust. Today, I'll speak about the humans and dwarves.

Along with the elves, these three races make up the original elder races. Humans have a tendency to think of themselves first and others last. Ruled by the crown, the human race has been struggling within itself more than the other races. Civil war has broken out as others vie for the control and the power the crown brings.

The dwarves are a mountain people, so much so that they can develop growths that are partially bone, part stone. With gray skin, stout stature, and powerful limbs, they are fierce warriors. You do not want to get on the wrong side of a dwarf's pickaxe.

Only two more races left: trolls and elves.

In a world torn by prejudice and hatred, six races struggled for supremacy. 

Barbarian-Princess Ivy is unwilling to allow her father to provoke the other races into war and forms an unlikely alliance with Lukor the goliath to save her people from utter destruction. 

Unbeknownst to her, Lukor blames the barbarians for murdering his sister and plans on sabotaging her goal. 

Almost despite each other, they grow to respect each other on their journey to decode secret messages from the trolls. But nothing Ivy can do will prevent the war as her father is blinded by bloodlust and incites it himself. Not even killing him and becoming Barbaroness can stop the tide. And when Bloodlust claims Ivy, forcing her to kill everyone in her path, she must make a choice to destroy even Lukor, who she may have started to fall for and him her in return.

Bloodlust - Now available at Amazon, B&N, and Kobo. Still waiting on Apple.

Think you've captured (your) humans perfectly. So often - in real life - there is too much me-ism.
