BLOODLUST - Warring Races

BLOODLUST is set in a world where six races all vie for supremacy - humans, elves, dwarves, trolls, goliaths, and barbarians.

Each race is unique with strengths and weaknesses.

The heroine of the story is a barbarian-princess. She's tall and strong, muscular to a fault, daring and brave. She's also reckless and headstrong and willing to risk everything on a gamble. Barbarians were first created from a union of a human and an elf. Barbarians tend to be ruled by their emotions, usually the darker ones. Ivy, more than most, is ruled by all of them - even the "weaker" ones.

The hero of BLOODLUST is a goliath. Even taller than barbarians, with great strength and power, goliaths can be just as bloodthirsty as barbarians. A few, however, have the power to heal others. They share a connection with plants, and when they are most happy, can cause flowers to grow where they walk. Considering their land is on the blink of total war, this doesn't happen much.

Tomorrow, I'll talk about two more races. For now, here's the cover again.

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.

woo hoo! Congratulations. Not sure if I signed up for the cover reveal (my brain is so soggy!)but I am revealing anyhow.

I'm thinking I did...or thought I did. Oh heck, let's just agree I'm a twit and do it anyhow :)

Congratulations! I hope that it does well. I have two daughters who will eat this book up. I'll tell them about it.

I love the idea of people/creatures that cause life to spring up wherever they walk - adds a nice counterpoint to all the inevitable killing that happened in fantasy :)

That's really interesting. I love the idea of a big guy like a goliath leaving flowers in his wake.
