Thank you to Netgalley, AE Ross and the publisher for my ARC of Run in the Blood.
Run in the Blood is the debut novel from author AE Ross. A slick fantasy novel with awesome characters who you can’t help but absolutely love!
Aela Crane has been raised a Corsair, a brutal, bloodthirsty pirate and she wouldn’t want life any other way. Sailing the high seas in search of fights, gold and glory, and popping back to port for a fumble with a sweet girl every now and again. What other life could she possibly want? As long as she hides the old magic inside her, she’ll be just fine.
Del is a quiet, thoughtful soldier who seems to know much more about Aela’s powers than she does and he’s hiding secrets of his own.
Brynne is a crofter’s daughter trying to learn how to be a princess when she is lifted to lofty heights thanks to a deal her now Dead father made on her behalf.
There’s everything you could possibly want from a great fantasy novel, pirates, magical creatures, politics, secrets among royalty and plenty of ‘omg’ surprise moments. Not to mention buckets of fun along the way. A truly swashbuckling, adventurous novel that doesn’t play by the normal rules. No tropes here guys!
