LoveReading View on Bloodline Rising

Richly imagined, this is a powerful historical fantasy in which a young man has to make big choices which will not only affect him but also those of his adopted clan. Moving from the gilded but corrupt world of Constantinople to the cold, harsh barbarian world of Britain, it tells how Cai, once a cunning young criminal growing up as a cog in the organized corruption rife in the city of Constantinople, becomes a warrior serving Wulfhere, prince of Mercia . Here Cia learns new loyalties and much about his own family.

Katy’s first novel Bloodline was published in 2008.


Bloodline Rising Synopsis

The Ghost is the fastest, most cunning young criminal in Constantinople. Skilled at lying and deceit, he has the power to twist the minds of men, bending them to his will. He is both invisible and invincible. Or at least he thinks so - till the day his father returns from the desert.
