Publisher's Summary

With Blood Upon the Sand is the second book in the Song of Shattered Sands epic fantasy trilogy.

Çeda, now a Blade Maiden in service to the kings of Sharakhai, trains as one of their elite warriors, gleaning secrets even as they send her on covert missions to further their rule. She knows the dark history of the asirim - that hundreds of years ago they were enslaved to the kings against their will - but when she bonds with them as a Maiden, chaining them to her, she feels their pain as if her own. They hunger for release, they demand it, but with the power of the gods compelling them, they find their chains unbreakable.

Çeda could become the champion they've been waiting for, but the need to tread carefully has never been greater. After their recent defeat at the hands of the rebel Moonless Host, the kings are hungry for blood, scouring the city in their ruthless quest for revenge. Çeda's friend Emre and his new allies in the Moonless Host hope to take advantage of the unrest in Sharakhai, despite the danger of opposing the kings and their god-given powers, and the Maidens and their deadly ebon blades.

When Çeda and Emre are drawn into a plot of the blood mage Hamzakiir, they learn a devastating secret that may very well shatter the power of the hated kings. But it may all be undone if Çeda cannot learn to navigate the shifting tides of power in Sharakhai and control the growing anger of the asirim that threatens to overwhelm her....

    I appreciate & relish a really great book! I do not, however, enjoy being indoctrinated into an authors personal beliefs or "feelings".

    "Is This the 2nd in a series?"

    It would be nice to know Ive purchased a book that takes 20 hours and never gets to the ending... or tells you at that end to stay tuned? it just stopped in the middle of the great crescendo of a battle...

    Story
    "Love the storyline, a little rough to get through"
    Any additional comments?

    On the storyline alone, I love this book. The world is very clear in my mind and lots of fun.(there do seem to be "travel time" issues, but I was forgiving) However, the book is a little rough to get through. I must have stopped and started this book 8 or 9 times. The last few times I started to think of the "why". They storyline, the world, the characters are all beautifully thought out. So why was I having a hard time getting through it....well, its the self narrative. Pick any single one, and you won't find faults. Its the fact that there is always a self narrative...and its usually very depressing. I started to skip them....not all of them, about 1/2.

    Now, this is personal taste, so you may enjoy these glimpses into darkness and hopelessness of the character, but....personally...I don't want the book to live there....and this book does. On the plus side, skip about 1/2 of them, and the book doesn't lose much and its much brighter.
