Blood Flows Deep in the Empire by N. Isabelle Blanco

Book Name: Blood Flows Deep in the Empire

Author Name: N. Isabelle Blanco

Genre: Paranormal Romance, Erotica

Publisher: The Writer's Coffee Shop
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 Review                           

Wow. I never expected this book to so good. But, I freaking love it. I definitely find there to be a strong element of creativity in this book. My most favorite genre is supernatural/paranormal. My second most favorite is erotica. This book series has the best of both worlds.  Hats off to the author for putting the best of both genres together so well into one story. 

The story starts about 11,000 years ago, when the God of fertility, Salicyar, watch Earth being flooded and most of mankind be wiped out. In this tragedy, he also looses his beloved, Dimithinia. With a prophecy of her soul twin being born in the modern world and sacrificing the said soul to bring back his beloved, Salicyar, now known as Dyletri, settles for the long haul.

As ages go by, the story focuses on the modern day New York,USA, and we are introduced to Ismini, the twin soul destined to bring Dimithinia back. When Dyletri goes to check on her, the both are knocked off their feat(metaphorically, ofcourse!) by the force of the attraction the feel for each other at the very instant. Hence, starts their journey to defy the fates, who are hell-bent on collecting the sacrifice promised to them and leting their love prevail.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book from the first page to the very last. It was humorous and very, very exciting. All of the other gods were snarky and very sarcastic towards each other so that was definitely fun. The interaction of the gods and the human females( namely, Ismini and her friend, Eve) were too witty and funny that had me crackling like a lunatic. 

Blood Flows Deep in the Empire is the first paranormal erotic romance from that I've read and it was definitely one satisfying read. It was seriously hot, sexy and I just loved Dyletri talking dirty to Ismini. Their sex scenes though. Holy, seriously hott! his book was so erotic and I found myself literally clenching my thighs.

The character development  was good. The characters were original and I loved the different elements that they were all they were gifted with. 

All in all, it was a very satisfying read and i look forward to other books in the series.
