If you love fantasy or young adult books, you will not want to miss this one! Set in a mesmerizing and beautiful world, Bloodmaiden is fantasy at it's best. It started a little slow for me but once I got involved in the story, it didn't let go! The details are amazing and Christine has a unique way of writing that has you rallying for the characters. With action, suspense, romance and mythical beings all working toward a cause, the pages just fled by. A short novel that can easily be read in an afternoon and would be great for a young adult book club. I look forward to reading more of Christine's work. I love dragon novels and this one is a great addition to my shelf!
