                           MY REVIEW

     This is the second book written by Emir Skalonja . I was actually lucky enough to get an ARC of this book and was so glad I did . I got so engrossed in this book I read it in an evening . So lets go back to Medieval France and the Siege of Orleans .
  As we read we find Joan of Arc leading her troops against the English in a bloody battle . Julien. Aubert , Bernard and Emanuel along with Gabriel and Maurice  head out to find the missing English soldiers before they back and warn the others . Things go haywire for all of them where they stumble around in the fog and finding a castle strange people in the castle . They need to get out before the evil comes alive
     The author paints such a picture with this story . We have the good versus evil and you wonder who actually is the good guys in this story. The characters are complex and so well written .  Each man has his own strenghts and weakness. That the author shows up in such detail . Especially when they meet Gimaild now he is one screwed up dude . Nice and sweet but watch out there is so much more to him then we are first led to believe . We find out there is a evil that lurch around him and his cult . Julien is a strong warrior and leader and will do anything for his men . Even fight till the death to save them .
     The author takes you on such an advernture reading this book. He book reads like a movie, you can see the pictures forming in your mind . You will get lost in the pages and you will gasp and groan and maybe actually turn of your kindle . Then come back to it . Its not for the feint of heart . There is a lot of thinking that will go on in your mind as you read .  You will come away thinking and wondering . This author likes to make you think about things after you are done reading . I know i was rethinking religion in his first book and in this book you will be rethinking right and wrong and cults .So if you want a great horror book that will make you think and wonder .  Check out BORN OF BLOOD by Emir Skalonja
