Blog Tour and Review: Blood Passage by Heather Demetrios





BLOOD PASSAGE
Dark Caravan Cycle #2
Author: Heather Demetrios
Release Date: March 1, 2016
Publisher: Balzer+Bray (HarperCollins)

SYNOPSIS:

A jinni who's lost everything.

A master with nothing to lose.

A revolutionary with everything to gain.

When Nalia arrives in Morocco to fulfil Malek's third and final wish she's not expecting it to be easy. Though Nalia is free from the shackles that once bound her to Malek as his slave, she's in more danger than ever before.

Meanwhile, Malek's past returns with a vengeance as he confronts the darkness within himself, and Raif must decide what's more important: his love for Nalia, or his devotion to the cause of Arjinnan freedom.

Set upon by powerful forces that threaten to break her, Nalia encounters unexpected allies and discovers that her survival depends on the very things she thought made her weak. From the souks of Marrakech to the dunes of the Sahara, The Arabian Nights come to life in this dazzling second installment of the Dark Passage Cycle.



 REVIEW

I haven't read many Jinn books. I have a few on my shelf, but other than that nothing.

Going into this book I don't know what I was expecting. (I didn't read the first one. I feel bad, but I'm definitely going to read it now.)

I really enjoyed the different settings in the story. Sometimes just reading about places in the US gets dare I say boring, but then I read books set in Morocco, and it's fascinating to me. I love to learn about new places, exotic places.

I love the Nalia was this fierce female, and she cared about certain others in her life.

QUOTES:
"I want you to myself before I have to share you."

Raif's closeness had struck a chord inside her, one that kept playing the same sweet note over and over and over."

"I might be a good guy, Nalia," He said. "But I never claimed to be well behaved."

"She wanted this dream to be her reality, to pretend the past didn't matter. To pretend she deserved her."
