Elfin Blood, by Gracen Miller
Julija is hybrid form of Elf comprised of Ivory Elf and Wood Elf. She is very unique to her race in that the different races of elves to not inter-breed with each other. As the story unfolds, Julija finds out there is more to her heritage than the fact that she has mixed blood. In this novel, she grows from a person who is distrustful and unsure of herself in regard to her standing in the elf community to a woman who becomes bold in her heritage and circumstances.
When Julija meets Landau, their world as they know it is upended. Their attraction defies all of the rules and boundaries biology and society have placed on them, as well as their self-inflicted limitations. Their hunger for each other jumps of the pages causing the reader to be completely caught up in their relationship and the repercussions resulting from it.
Adding to the excitement of the book is the conflict. Julija is sent by the Elfin King to retrieve a magical book from Landau. The king’s need to obtain the book is overshadowed by the manipulations he has concocted to achieve his goals that is truly depraved. Figure in Julia’s relationship with the king and its dynamics, the plot molds itself into a fulfilling intrigue because the truth of that relationship and her birthright adds another layer of interest the story.
While the nature of the king’s corrupt need for the magical book drives the conflict in the story with its rough edges, it is the romance in it that smoothes those edges, melding the book into a sensual bouquet of thought and feeling. Add to it the vindication of Julija’s metamorphosis from “just” a hybrid elf into a powerful being, the author gives the reader a very good book to read.
Elfin Blood by Gracen Miller offers redemption, mystery, betrayal, lush sexual tension, and sweltering, soul-bending love to the reader. How could a romance aficionado pass up this read? The originality of the tale inspires me to earnestly recommend this book to readers of the paranormal romance genre.
