SUMMARY õ A River of Royal Blood A River of Royal Blood #1 Wn sister eight generations ago thus beginning the Rival Heir tradition Living in Raina's long and dark shadow Eva must now face her older sister Isa in a battle to the death if she hopes to ascend to the Ivory Throne because in the ueendom of Myre only the strongest most ruthless rulers surviveWhen Eva is attacked by an assassin just weeks before the battle with her sister she discovers there is to the attempt on her life than meets the eye and it isn't just her sister who w. you can find this review and others on my blogA River of Royal Blood follows a princess named Eva who must fight her sister Isa to the death in order to rule the ueendom of Myre She s the first person in a century who has had the magick of blood and marrow and she must learn to control it in order to win the battleFirst of all I absolutely adore the concept of rival sisters because it allows for so many different themes to be tackled And I loved reading how Eva and Isa used to be close but drifted apart as they were forced to be pitted against each other While I feel like their relationship could have been explored further it was overall well executed and that aspect lived up to my expectationsEva never really believed she could be ueen and basically set herself up for death but she doesn t want to die So she finds someone who teaches her how to control her blood magick and hone it in preparation to fight her sister I loved how she battled with herself about the morality of killing vs the need to keep herself alive and in general she was a character worth reading and loving Even if I had to become the wicked girl of my nightmares a maelstrom of marrow and blood I would do whatever it took to stay alive Other side characters also added to the book Falun long time friend of Eva Baccha her blood magick teacher and the mysterious Lord of the Hunt Aketo the beautiful prince of an oppressed race and Anali the captain of Eva s guard However I definitely think that this is of an action packed plot focused story than a character driven oneOne of my favorite parts in the book was the inclusion of the stories recounting the history of how this world of magick came to be They were written so beautifully and were sprinkled in just the right places Plus the way they were told along with the memories to Eva s past helped feel like the story was building up to somethingPerhaps the most captivating thing was all the magick that this world included Honestly the entire fantasy world was fascinating too and I say that as someone who s not usually one for worldbuilding or setting Another shining highlight of this novel was its interwoven themes of power and identity and most of all erasure The discussion of how the history of one race was erased draws parallels to colonization and supremacy and it was so so well written I ll remind you every chance I get even if you don t want to hear it you deserve to live you deserve to fight and you deserve to survive The throne all its glory and bitterness is your birthright Unfortunately the beginning started off a bit roughly for me Objectively I could tell that things were happening to move the plot forward but it just felt like the author was trying to set too much up in the beginning of the story For me there were too many looks into character backstories and worldbuilding in the beginning once things continued those became a lot enjoyable for meI think the biggest thing that prevented me from enjoying this though was the lack of proper development of the characters relationships Things were told to the reader but not everything was actually shown so the connections between characters seemed off and almost manufactured That being said it improved a lot over the course of the story as they got to know one another Once I moved past the first 100 pages I didn t want to put it downAll that aside I still enjoyed reading the book It was dark and thrilling and the fantasy world that Joy came up with is so enthralling If you don t mind less development of character relationships in favor of intriguing worldbuilding and plot I recommend this enchanting
