Blood of Your Blood is the author's first novel. It is a vampire love story and a fantasy adventure set during the time of kings and knights. Rena Ali is a creative writer with a quote that sticks in my mind. "The imagination is the playground of the soul".

This story is set during the fifteenth century in England. King Henry is ruler during this period of history. The knights of King Henry fight a rebellion during the day and a secret war at night. The Knights of the Five Badge of Nottinghamshire fight a bloody war against a clan of vampires that have become entrenched in their society for hundreds of years.

Sir Jamie Lawrence is the bravest and most skilled knight of the group. However, he meets the beautiful princess Sofia and everything he believes to be true is challenged. After falling in love with her and pledging to be her protector, he discovers her dark secret that is tied to his past.

This is one of the most captivating fantasy adventures I have read in a while. The author is creative and emotional. He depicts an exciting world that fits right in with that period of history. The writing is very descriptive, and at times, graphic in detail. However, the graphic fight scenes were necessary to the storyline. The plot and language are easy to follow. I felt drawn into the world of the knights by the vivid pictures the author creates through his writing style.

The characters feel like "flesh and blood" characters with developed backgrounds and a full range of varying emotions. The hero, Sir Jamie Lawrence, is a strong and courageous knight. He faithfully serves his king. He is placed in uncharted territory and faces difficult choices. Sofia is a strong female who has endured great tragedy in her life. The vampire characters range from cruel, demonic creatures of the night to more "humanized" ones that want to blend into society.

The love story, that is woven throughout the adventure, is one of the most poetic stories I have read. The love between Sir Jamie and Sofia jumps off the pages of this book. It is evident that they are truly soul mates.

The only thing that was slightly distracting to me was the author's use of including a character's thoughts at the end of a spoken conversation. At first, I enjoyed it and thought it was a creative aspect, but then it seemed to be overused. Other than my personal preference on that matter, I don't have anything negative to say. The book appears to be professionally edited. I rate this 4 out of 4 stars. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys history, romance, adventure and vampires. I hope there is a sequel to read soon.

I think I just found my new quote, "The imagination is the playground of the soul." Sorry that I'm stealing it from you! Lol

Great Review!🌸

I love that this includes vampires as well as being set during medieval times. Two of my favorite things. Sounds like a good story. Thanks for a wonderful review!

Awesome Review! I love vampire stories and this one I could definitely read. I like when these types of stories have a uniqueness to them and I don't think I have read one with knights. I'm very interested to say the least!!
