Review: The Blood She Betrayed, by Cheryse Durrant

Title: The Blood She Betrayed
Author: Cheryse Durrant


To save her kingdom, she must betray her blood...
Thrust into the technology-driven Earthlands via magical mists, Shahkara is forced to rely on Max McCalden to help find the ancient Elnara death lantern, her homeworld’s last chance of survival against the heart-devouring Taloners.
Max has his own problems, but nothing prepares him for this fugitive warrior’s razor-sharp talons.
Shahkara longs for love, but as deadly enemies attack at every turn, will her heart-lust for Max destroy them both? Or will she find the strength to free both worlds from a threat more horrific than the demons that share her blood?



For those who don’t know her, Cheryse Durrant is an Australian Urban Fantasy Author who just released the first novel of the Heart Hunters series.
There are so many things that I could say about this book, but I have to confess I'm still feel a bit overwhelmed with the amount of feelings that this book aroused on me. This book is not like any other, after reading so many books about this theme I can say that I found something new, an incredible and inspiring originality that eventually feels like a new breath of fresh air in a theme like urban fantasy. The details in it are so accurate that you feel like you’re in the center of the story.
Although being a incredible book, there are no perfect stories. In my opinion the beginning it was a little difficult to understood what was happening and because of that it was not easy to create an empathy with the protagonists. I don’t know how to explain what happened, but I stayed a little confused in the first pages. Fortunately this sensation quickly disappear and I found myself completely stuck in the plot and could only settle down until I finished reading. Beyond the originality, the plot seems very strong, showing the author's care in creating that world, moreover, the characters are well framed in the situations and revealed their personalities with their actions and not with descriptions, not tiring the reader with details not important to the course of the story.
Being the first book of a series, this was an introduction to some events that seems to be eminent. It seemed to me that the revelation of the true identity of the Max’s father will still bring new developments, because I think that everything was settle too quickly. When I finished reading I felt a bit incomplete, wanting to read more, feel more...
A book full of action, betrayals, romance and humor - features no one can remain indifferent. I'm looking forward to the second book.
