Good Thursday all

Good morning world , hope your Thursday is treating you well. Today I have the honor of reading and reviewing BLESSED OF THE GODS (Aumelan book one) by Charlene Wilson.

                                                BOOK BLURB
Chad is in love, but the world isn’t right – not when you’re forbidden to have the one you desire just because she’s your slave. His vitality host, Dae, has held his heart since they were both children. He must find a way to set her free if he’s ever to know if she wants him too, and that means finding a way to live without her aid. Chad believes the answer lies in the World of the Sun where they originated, not the world of his cavernous home. Fate will guide him, he knows it.

When Salana, Daughter of the Sun Nation, meets Chad, she’s faced with the unbelievable; a man who must take energy from a host to survive. But he’s not the only one. The entire Tsosey Nation is plagued with this unusual need. The strong yet meek Chamber people submitted to serve them through the centuries. Can Salana help this young man whose dreams of freedom could change the course of both nations? And can she do it without falling for him and turning her back on the marriage arranged by her parents?

                                          MY REVIEW
   I have to admit something , this is the first book I have read from this author. Now I am kicking myself because I waited for so dang long. This book had me turning pages all night long . I admit it gave me a bit of a book hang over . I mean its a book with two world that are separated by rocks and dirt .  Chad is from below and he is in love with his vitality host. He has been since they were both children . He wants to find the World of the Sun so he can find a way to live with out Dae's help. Where he meets Salana a daughter of the Sun Nation, she decides to help him but like with all great books . She has to fight her feelings for the young man . And what will this mean for both nations.
   The characters in this book are very riveting and complex. They take us on an adventure, Chad is a very determined and yet tortured young man. He will do almost anything to find a way to be with the young woman that has captured his heart from the time they were children. He wants to help his people and you see that shine through. Salana's character is a strong character but as a child born of royalty she has traditions to  uphold , which she is not sure if she should be . So when the two characters meet they are out for an adventure and start  traveling down a path that will change their lives. These characters really stood out for me . They both want to help people. They are both strong and they could be your best friend or sister or brother .
    This is a story of love , betrayal and deception, you will want to cheer for each and every character . You will go on an adventure ride full of twists and turns and there are some OMG moments that will have you turning pages. The writing is so good and the author can weave a tale . If you haven't read anything by Charlene, this is the book you should start with. I know you will not be disappointed. Charlene is going on my ever growing list of authors to follow and read more of.
