A princess with a craving for blood. A stranger who knows her secret. A land where nothing is as it seems.

A princess with a craving for blood. A stranger who knows her secret. A land where nothing is as it seems.

When her sister becomes betrothed to a prince in a northern nation, Zeraphina's only consolations are that her loyal animal companions are by her side - and that her burning hunger to travel north is finally being sated.

Already her black hair and pale eyes mark her out as different, but now Zeraphina must be even more careful to keep her secret safe. Craving blood is not considered normal behaviour for anyone, let alone a princess. So when the king's advisor, Rodden, seems to know more about her condition than she does, Zeraphina is determined to find out more.

Zeraphina must be willing to sacrifice everything if she's to uncover the truth - but what if the truth is beyond her worst nightmares?

Reviews

Oh my gosh, I loved it so ... BLOOD SONG is written with astounding talent, stunning creativity and complete heart. It's thrilling and mysterious and fun and creepy and dark (with some sexy undertones). It's on my favourites list, best of 2011 list and tops my list of fave fantasies. I had no idea I would love this so.

Rhiannon Hart is one debut author that everyone should be on the watch for. BLOOD SONG is an incredible start to what is no doubt going to shape up to be a favourite series of mine. A rich, vivid new fantasy world containing such a unique and compelling mythology with creatures that will lure you into their frenzied web of seduction - to draw away from the pages would be a sin ... If you like your heroines spunky, relatable and flawed, if you like a novel that will demand to be read in one sitting, then this is the perfect read. Do not pass it up!

If you love the likes of Maria V. Snyder or you're looking for the next big thing in the fantasy book genre, then BLOOD SONG must be owned by you NOW! Don't judge it on vampiric-likeness or even by its cover . . . the words inside the book will speak for themselves! 5/5 stars

An enchantingly eerie ride from start to finish, Blood Song captivated me with its rich, magical details, and refused to let me go the entire tale! ... This book will thrill fans of Maria V. Snyder's Study series and Kristen Cashore's GRACELING and I foresee it being a hit!

BLOOD SONG was amazingly imaginative and atmospheric, definitely a welcome addition to the Aussie fantasy scene. I look forward to Rhiannon's future books! I give Blood Song a 5 out of 5. I'd recommend it for fans of: GRACELING and BURN BRIGHT.
