Review: In The Blood (The Witchbreed Series Book 1) by R. L. Martinez

About the book

The Warrior

The war may have ended, but a new battle begins for disgraced prisoner-of-war, Ottilde Dominax. Dreams of her witchbreed twin are visions of death and betrayal. Driven by their grim warning, she escapes her captors and races across nations to save her sister.

But she may arrive too late…

The Witch

Lady Oriabel Dominax has kept her healing magic secret while she cares for her family’s struggling estate. But the arrival of a new lord hiding secrets of his own, the discovery of a dark and addictive magic and threats from a cruel blackmailer push her closer to disaster.

Through it all, the Witch’s Tree calls…

My Review

This is a wonderful read.

A thoroughly engrossing epic fantasy about twin sisters whose lives and experiences are as different as they can be.

Ottilde is the solider and Oriabel is the witch. Identical in appearance these two women are worlds apart in experience. R.L. Martinez draws you into this world from the first page. The author has created a spellbound world full of magic and danger, fierce beasts, proud people and warring nations. Magic and fantastical elements are woven into through the story with skill. Each and every character has surprising depths, motivations, strengths and failures. Each sister is surrounded by both friends and enemies with mysterious needs and deadly intentions. Both suffer love and loss, betrayal and heartache in a land where they cannot trust anyone.

Through magic, fear, war and love these two women must risk everything to be true to their own hearts.

I love this world and the characters within. I didn’t want the book to end but when it did… I am now impatiently waiting on book two!
