*****SPOILERS READ AT YOUR OWN PERIL*****
Much like the second book, Path of Blood was disappointing to me. I was not happy with how it ended, I did not like how Yohuac had to basically sleep with everyone before killing himself. It was too convenient that Raisil's mother was from the same realm that Yohuac was from. I don't really even get how Reisil and Yohuac get together. They did not have any romantic moments before she went to search for the wizards, and the moment they escape from the wizards they all of a sudden are together? Then when she decides that there will be no other man for her... I don't see that bond that they formed. I was happy that she eventually got him back, but since I wasn't happy that he had to sacrifice himself to begin with, I was not happy that he came back in energy form.
People died that I really did not want dying, Kebonsat's sister died... hadn't she been through enough? The ruler guy Aare was really really cruel, I feel like it was not necessary. Kebonsat deserved E's ignoring of him. Reisil and Yohuac spent a ton of time in the alternate world, it seemed like the author was trying to build that world up, but then just dropped it. The end seemed too easy, I felt it should have been more of a battle, but instead it was just dealing with the magic.
All in all 2 stars. I think the lowest I have ever given a book.
