Blood Flows Deep In The Empire (The Szolites 1) - N. Isabelle Blanco

The Book
Release Date: 7 March 2013
Dyletri, God of Fertility, has locked away his powers. No woman is allowed to touch him, not until he can return his long-dead lover back to life. All he has to do is sacrifice one human girl, a girl who unlocks his powers and rips his dormant lust right out of his body. Trapped by his promise, Dyletri has no choice but to watch Ismini die, no matter how much he wants her. 

Yet the darkness of his calling is spiraling within him, demanding he claim the human as his. If he goes back on his promise, the energy of the Fates will cause untold destruction in the Universe. That doesn’t change how Dyletri’s begun exhibiting symptoms that point to more than just lust. How does he allow Ismini to die when she’s come to own him from the inside out?

Desire and torment spiral into something much darker than obsession, more turbulent than an addiction, and something much more brutal than a mere soul-mating. As a war is being rekindled right under his nose, Dyletri will have to come to terms with a destiny eleven thousand years in the making. He thought he’d known what path his future would take, but he’d been wrong. Now the one woman he truly loves might pay the price for his decision.

Blood Flows Deep in the Empire is the first in a series that will pit free-will against Destiny, Destiny against Fate, and love against brutal desire. Everyone likes to think they have a choice as to who they end up with, but as they rise to face the greatest threat they’ve ever known, even the Gods will learn they have to bend to Destiny’s whim to survive.

My Opinion 5 STARS
**Thank You to NetGalley and The Writer's Coffee Shop Publishing House for providing me with this ARC**

***Warning this book contains: Heavy sex scenes, strong language and some seriously hot men***

A hot little read delving into the world of Mythology that was brilliantly put together.

I have a little trouble over pronouncing some of the names, however the story more than made up for that.

The Glossary of Characters on the kindle really didn't work too well, however i can see it would be better in paper format.

I loved the interaction between the characters and am glad that this is the first in the series, i can't wait fir the next book to heat the tail of Zenial/Mavrak and Evesse.
