A review of Assena Blessed by Tracy M. Joyce

I was really excited to read the next chapter in Isaura’s life. The first book was a tapestry of lives moving together but never really intersecting. This book finally pits all the lives together and we see the waves come together. In this book, we really see Isaura coming into her own. It’s bloody, wicked and exciting. I’m sure just like me you were waiting for Karan’s people to meet Isaura’s people. And yes, I think we were all expecting the chemistry that ensued between Karan and Isaura. I don’t want to say too much, but this book reveals the origins of the Assena and The lady.

This book combines imagination, surprise, intrigue, chemistry, and history to create a magical, bloody, brutal and real story that still manages to capture the essence of life. There’s so much that happens, and if you’ve read Altaica, you know what I mean. It doesn’t disappoint, the story goes where you hope it goes, but at the same time, it changes, surprises, and sets up what’s to come in the third chapter (coming in 2017).

I most definitely can’t wait for the book to be released. This book deserves a five out of five stars.
