The Bloodsworn by Erin Lindsey - Review

The bonds of family, love, and loyalty are pushed to their limits in this thrilling conclusion to the epic saga started in The Bloodbound...

As the war between Alden and Oridia draws to its conclusion, the fates of both kingdoms rest on the actions of a select group of individuals—and, of course, the unbreakable bonds of blood...

Unbeknownst to most of Alden, King Erik, in thrall to a cruel bloodbinder, is locked away in his own palace, plotting revenge. To save her king, Lady Alix must journey behind enemy lines to destroy the bloodbinder. But her quest will demand sacrifices that may be more than she can bear.

Meanwhile, as the Warlord of Oridia tightens his grip on Alden, the men Alix loves face equally deadly tasks: her husband, Liam, must run a country at war while her brother, Rig, fights a losing battle on the front lines. If any one of them fails, Alden could be lost—and, even if they succeed, their efforts may be too late to save everyone Alix holds dear...

I really enjoyed this book! I thought it was a good conclusion to the series but strong in it's own right. It was filled with action, adventure, and a touch of magic. Alix is as always such a strong heroine, and in this installment she and her husband Liam must go separate ways in order to save the kingdom.

It was interesting seeing Alix interact and work with a new group of people and see Liam have to take up the helm of political leader. The story was romping, and while I found the plot to meander a little bit, if was fairly well paced. The tension was high for most of the story, so I missed a little bit of the humor found earlier in the series, but the stakes were high and all the characters had to rise to the occasion. The world continues to become more developed, as do all the characters. 

I really enjoyed this series and thought Bloodsworn was a wonderful ending to an exciting, action-filled, romantic series.
