Publisher's Summary

The last thing Maldynado Montichelu - former aristocrat and current ladies' man - ever wanted was to be left in charge. After all, the team just blew up a train, crashed a dirigible, and kidnapped the emperor. It's kind of an important time. But, with Amaranthe captured by the nefarious Forge coalition, and Sicarius off to find her, the team is lacking in leaders. Also, Sicarius has made it clear that Maldynado's life may be forfeit should anything happen to the emperor while he's gone. To make matters worse, Forge's cutthroats are after Sespian, and the young emperor believes Maldynado's loyalties are suspect. As if it's his fault that his older brother is working with the coalition to usurp the throne.
If Maldynado can't figure out how to earn the emperor's trust quickly, Sespian will go off to confront their powerful enemies on his own. Meanwhile, Amaranthe must find a way to escape from the coalition's newest ally, Master Interrogator Pike, a man who plans to pull all of the secrets from her head, one way or another.

Wow! Get this series!

If you could sum up Blood and Betrayal in three words, what would they be?

Exciting, Non-stop Ride!

What did you like best about this story?

I love Sicarius. But I really love all the characters. They are all different, unique and bring something different to the table.

Which scene was your favorite?

When Sicarius makes a choice. (Don't want to give spoilers away.)

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The results of the choice he made and the look on his face and what he did next.

Any additional comments?

I'm here from the Fallen Empire series. I totally loved Leonidas and decided to try another series while I wait for more of those. I'm sorry Leo, but I think Sicarius is my new favorite. The book is non-stop action. A real thrill ride. I can't recommend this series enough. You do need to start from book one or you won't know what's going on. There is also a romance. No instant love, it's been a build up over all 5 books, mainly the last two. I like it. It feels more real. This book revealed quite a bit about Sicarius past and begins to explain why he is what he (an Assassin) is.

The one thing I like is that Sicarius is an Assassin. I don't mean a book that says he's one then he never wants to kill anyone. Sicarius will and does kill. It's because of love that he's trying not to make it his first option but he has a particular skill set and if there is no other way, he will find you, (my best Liam Neeson immigration from Taken) and he will kill you.

Love this series. MORE!
