    I thought this book was alright, it certainly had some great plotlines! The main character was very badass, but other than that there was not any more to her than meets the eye. Could’ve done with some better narrations at times where the book itself was violent but the wordings seemed juvenile! Once again, some really great plot points including just about everything from the fantasy genre from Gods and magic to dragons and other mythical creatures. And also a world of gladiators that was why I primarily chose this book to win. I liked the concept essentially, but it seemed all over the place by the end of the book. Side note, a LOT of easy solutions to problems for the main character.

    Review: 4.3 out of 5 starsBloodline is Canadian author Katie Thorton-K.'s first novel. It is the first book in the Lands of Ayrenia Chronicles: The Bloodline Saga young adult fantasy series. The author has also written Red Dragon, the second book in the series, and soon to be released novella entitled First Rider (same series). The books are available in both e-format and paperback.Set in a fantasy world where the earth is slowly dying due to the fact that a rogue human mage decided to rid the world of all forms of magic, a young heroine named Braelyn is chosen by the gods to restore peace and order before all is lost. Follow Braelyn on her lifelong adventure that will bring many trials and tribulations. Born from a legendary warrior, she is abducted from her family at a young age, brought to a far away land and sold as a slave where she must train and fight as a gladiator to earn her very freedom. Will she rise up and meet every challenge to become the hero that she must be?While I found the writing to be a bit raw, the story was so rich and compelling that I couldn't put the book down. The author is a skilful storyteller and if you enjoy fantasy, I highly recommend trying Bloodline. Even if the writing itself could use a bit more polishing, you will not be disappointed by the storyline. Yves RobichaudAuthor of Kaylen’s Rising (Tomes of Taria, Book 1)

    "Braelyn stood there in shock as Yuri fell down to the ground choking on his own blood. She wondered at there being so much blood left after the amount that came from the stub of his arm, but then again she knew that the amount of blood pouring from her own wounds was significant." A book about courage, overcoming adversity and tragedy, and rising above, Bloodline is the first in the Bloodline Saga, by writer Katie Thornton-K. With strong character development, significant detail, and outstanding plot development, we, as readers, find ourselves rooting on main character Braelyn Ira’Aed as she disposes of one of her pirate captors, defeats many contenders in the gladiator ring to earn her freedom, and, finally, fulfills her destiny. This is a must-read for not only fantasy readers but all who read for the love of getting lost in a book. Bloodline will have you asking for more from talented new writer Thornton-K.

    Bloodline by Katie Thornton-K blew me away! Such an amazing story! A reflection of historical events in a made up world that has lost its magic. A terrific story line carried out flawlessly. I especially liked, and continued to re-read, the Gladiator scenes. So descriptive they created mental images. Although it is listed as book 1, there was no cliffhanger. A truly well written HEA. I cannot wait to see what she comes up with next.

    Katie Thornton-K is a new YA author and I think she is going places. As a fan of Tamora Pierce and female heroines I really liked this book. Braelyn was cast into the plans of the gods without any knowledge of it until they needed her. I very much enjoyed it and I will be ordering 'Red Dragon' as soon as it is available!

    Bloodline is Katie Thornton-K's debut novel and follows the story of a young girl named Braelyn who is kidnapped and sold into slavery. Determined to earn her freedom, the girl spends many years learning to be a Gladiator. Now a young woman, Braelyn is taken to a tournament where the price of failure is death.Just when I thought I knew where the storyline was going, there was a huge plot twist and I was thrown into a world looking to regain its magic, with all the wonderful fantastical elements I love. Braelyn discovers that she alone can restore magic to their dying lands and embarks on a new quest with her loyal friends.I found the storyline really engaging and it grew more exciting as it went along. The first half was entertaining and I enjoyed the descriptions of the gladiator fights, the second half I found much more exciting, though I won't give away any spoilers. Braelyn reminds me of a younger version of Brienne of Tarth from Game of Thrones. She is a great fighter, although I would have liked a little more depth and exploration of her feminine side. I'll hope for a love interest later in the series.The cover and maps were very well done. Unfortunately my little black and white Kindle didn't do the maps justice and the font was too small to read. In that instance, I would recommend reading a paperback version, because I love to flip back to the maps to see where we are.The formatting was well done and the editing was alright, although there were a couple of little issues.This novel can be read as a stand-alone, although I'm sure that you will agree that you can't wait to hear more from this talented new author.Well done to Katie Thornton-K on her debut novel. I look forward to reading the second installment.I was provided a free copy to read, but this has not influenced my opinions or review. I rate this book 4 and a half stars.

    I really enjoyed this book - enjoyed it enough that I read it in its entirety on one rainy afternoon! (stretching into LATE evening). I found this story action packed and had very quick pacing if a little light on the details – if you want Tolkien level detail this is not the book for you but Ms. Thornton K. manages to paint a vivid fantasy would with enjoyable characters in spite of that. It was resonant of some of the early Dragonlance stories (particularly the Chronicles series and the Legends series) with a spunky heroine in place of a motley crew (seriously the main character is pretty much solid attitude), but the same sense of “return to the age before” and “magical revival” are constant through the story.Long story short - If you like traditional fantasy this is very much a book to pick-up!

    (3 1/2 out of 5)Bloodline introduces you to BraelynIra’Aed of the clan Ira’Aed. She is the descendent of the ArchMage that took magic from the earth. Now, 300 years later, the earth is dying and it will take Braelyn and her friends to set things right.Braelyn was a strong child that grew into an even stronger woman.Braelyn’s journey was a long and sometimes brutal one. Through adversity and tragedy the characters in Bloodline showed an amazing amount of courage, strength and will power. It took a while to get to what needed to be done to make things right then only took a moment to do it. The story with its characters and scene descriptions are very well written. The plot was thought out and easy to follow.I do love a good fantasy and though a rather good read I believe the story dragged on a bit too long.

    In Bloodline, we are introduced to Braelyn who, as a child, was kidnapped by pirates and sold to a gladiator house. After she earns her freedom, she and a group of friends, some from her past and others from her present, go on an adventure to bring magic back to the lands of Ayrenia. There are friendships forged, kingdoms created, and lessons learned.I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys the style of Kristen Britain or Tamora Pierce.
