Divine by Blood - P.C. Cast
Advantages: The third in the "divine" series of books.
Disadvantages: Not everyone's cup of tea.
After reading and thoroughly enjoying what I thought to be the entire series of books within author P C Cast's series "divine", I was surprised to find another book from said series lurking at the bottom of my to read pile, hence this review!
The book in question is "Divine by blood" and should have followed on from "Divine by choice", though thankfully didn't stop me from reading and thoroughly enjoying the latter two books within the series!
Rhiannon knows that she is not dead, but she is far from being alive too. Entombed within a tree when her task of returning to Parthalon backfired, and the father of her child now dead, sacrificing himself to seal her into the tree in the human world, she knows she may never be freed, but the voice that has whispered into her ears since her childhood has returned, and now the evil that is known simply as "Pryderi" has returned to claim his goddess to allow him and her access back into the magical world.
After he releases her from her tomb she soon finds that labour waits for no-one, goddess or not and soon starts to deliver her child, a daughter whom she calls Morrigan, but as she nears her end she finds that actually she doesn't want this evil hanging over her child's head, and denounces Pryderi, but evil doesn't give up so easily..........
It's actually quite difficult to explain the synopsis of this book as so much has happened in the two previous books!
Parthalon is a supposed magical place of Muses and goddess's, with Rhiannon swapping herself for her mirror image in the human world Shannon (who now resides as Rhiannon in Parthalon), but is now desperate to get back, but unable to do so.
So Morrigan is brought up by Shannon's parents in the human world, but soon finds that she has goddess given powers that are needed within Parthalon, so soon, once again the two worlds collide.
I loved this series of books, not only does it contain fantasy, but also romance, all done with a pinch of ironic humour, making this a fun book to read.
This is of course always going to be a book for the select few, centaurs' and goddess's are not for everyone, but for the lovers of fantasy worlds and true romantics this would be the ideal book, though reading he first two books would slide you in nicely to the concept!
This does sound like the ideal book for younger readers, but due to the (at times) quite graphic sex scene's, this is of course not the case, but does an extra layer to my reading enjoyment!
Price wise this has a RRP of £6.99, but can be found for less via www.amazon.co.uk
Thanks for reading x
Summary: Not a bad book!
