Blood Soup is a page turning novelette that will keep you wanting more. The well-crafted suspense had me reading until I finished. I could not put it down. At the end, I just wanted more!
An antiquated kingdom tale tells the story of mixing of royal blood lines from differing kingdoms with differing traditions. Of course, there is a problem when the worlds collide.
The calculating king focuses on business as the ultimate goal. Business-minded yet ethical within his realm of reality, he weds a bride who believes in the seen and the unseen worlds. Their heir, boy or girl will determine the future of the kingdom. She knows the heir will be a girl. She tells the kingdom she carries a girl. And yet as the queen dies, it's not a girl who survives.
So many are sacrificed to uphold the king's beliefs and traditions. He ends up facing the kingdom and heir he created. Much to his chagrin, his wife’s foretelling seems to be coming true despite his efforts.
The kingdom in peril, treaties in jeopardy, traditional beliefs challenged, all is at risk when the heir discovers his true origins. Born of Blood, Fed on Blood, what is the new king to do with the knowledge of who and what he is...
I enjoyed Blood Soup though I wouldn’t want to taste it.
