In the land of fae, you’re either the hunter or the hunted.

Ara, a high fae in the Court of Marsh, was trained since birth to kill. When it comes down to it, can she sever the tendrils of her morality and do it? After being taken prisoner by the sea queen, she manages an escape riddled with questions, only to arrive home to absolute heartbreak, finding the slain bodies of her cherished parents. Discovering everything she knew to be a lie, she sets out on a dangerous journey to learn the truth of her upbringing. But when the hunters begin to come for her, she realizes she isn’t the only one that will need her lethal skills.

Meanwhile, Temir, a lesser fae in the vicious Court of Wind, hates no one more than himself. Gifted with the magic of healing and therefore protected from the prejudices befallen the rest of the lesser fae, he is smothered beneath the firm hand of the northern king. But when he makes a discovery that could change the world, he must decide, produce the serum and convince the one he is falling in love with to run away with him and his beloved mentor or let fear suppress him into defeat.

One high fae. One lesser fae. One goal. Find a way to fight back.

For fans of adventure, battle toughened fae, budding romance, and glory-destined heroines comes the first novel in the Fae Rising trilogy. If you enjoy authors like Holly Black and Sarah J Maas, you won’t want to miss the beginning of this thrilling adventure.

Thank you so much Literary Bound Tours, for allowing me to be a part of this tour! I also want to thank the author, Miranda Lyn, for allowing me to read and review Blood and Honor. I was given a final version in exchange for an honest review for this tour with Literary Bound Tours.

What I enjoyed: 

  • I liked the overall concept of Blood and Honor. The class difference and strife between higher and lesser fae, and even humans, is an intriguing concept for me. 
  • My favourite character was Temir in this book. I liked his point of view and the overall structure of his storyline. 
  • I also liked the interactions between Ara and Prince Fenlas. 
  • The ending has a great cliffhanger that makes me excited to find out what happens in book two. 

My critiques: 

  • I would have liked to have seen more description of the world Temir and Ara belong to in Blood and Honor. I also would have liked to have seen more of the character’s thoughts and feelings.
  • I also would have liked to have seen the characters that Ara meets along her journey, to have been a bit more fleshed out. 


Overall, Blood and Honor invites readers to experience hierarchical strife, cheer-worthy romance and a cliffhanger that will have fans dying for book 2.
