Blood and Memory, Paperback
3 out of 5 (1 rating)


The machinations of King Celimus have robbed Wyl Thirsk of almost everyone he held dear, and those few who have survived will bear the scars forever.

Myrren's gift offers Wyl the opportunity to strike back, but at what price?

His best friend is murdered, mercenaries pillage the land in the name of his beloved Legion, and now the mad king threatens the two women who are more precious to him than life itself.

He cannot save both. The old seer's advice comes back to him: find the Manwitch.

Only Myrren's natural father can help break the hold of the Quickening.

But Wyl's heart pleads otherwise: protect your loved ones.

Once again, it seems, Wyl Thirsk faces an impossible choice.

The path ahead diverges. Left and right. Head and heart. Blood and memory. A misstep here could cost him everything ...

Review by

Some of what happened in book 1 are explained and there's setup for book 3, it's a bridge novel and not really anything spectacular. King Celimus continues to be an evil tyrant and Wyl Thirsk keeps trying to avoid leaping into another body but Myrren's Gift drives him. He also wants to keep the women he holds dear safe. People meet magic and it changes them. It's interesting but it's somewhat flat.
