Thicker Than Blood
The Magicians series #3
by Lindsey R. Sablowski
Release Date August 2014
Alaire Sencler is not the man he used to be. He left behind a foul and bloody past to be with the woman he loves, but the memories never allow him to forget what he did.
While the White magicians rise an army, their leader hides his true reasons for going to war. Meanwhile the Dark magicians seek out a new haven, one that might keep them hidden long enough to prepare for the war that is raging on outside their doorstep.
Though Alaire has a unique gift and the woman of his dreams by his side, he has yet to come to terms with Esmour’s death and what the future holds for him. New faces and the revealing of the fifth Dark magicians offers hope, but only the strongest will survive in the final battle.
Whoever said “blood runs thicker than water” never knew what it is like to be a part of the current.
I am so excited to be helping my friend Lindsey with the release of her third book. I remember when Cursed with Power was still up on inkpop–she was always passionate to have readers, and I’m proud she made it this far. She fought to get her book out there, even when things got hard, and I hope I can approach my audience with such persistence.
I hope you will give her series a look, and hope she’ll put out many more books in the future. She is truly very inspiring. Visit her website here!
We followed the noises and passed by more trees until Léal was in our sight. He performed a spell which hit the tree in front of him. Rostland held me back and gestured he would advance first.
Slowly stepping forward, Rostland said, “Léal, you need to stop before you hurt yourself.”
He turned around and glared, but sweat covered his face and ran past his neck.
Léal replied, “You knew her for one year; I knew her for five. She kept saying time and time again she was on my side, and I never once believed her until the end.”
Rostland took another step forward, but Léal raised his hand. I considered moving closer to help if anything spun out of control, but I was confident in Rostland.
“Do you plan to kill me again? Come now, you’re making a fool out of yourself,” Rostland said in a firm voice.
Léal whispered a word and cast a spell, causing a ice shard to strike through Rostland’s chest.
Every muscle in my body tensed, but Rostland quickly ripped the icicle out and threw it on the ground.
The icicle broke apart into pieces, and the two men stared at each other.
