Blood Ties by Alicia Lynn Wright is the second in a fiction fantasy epic series, Noble of Blood, that introduces us to Nikkola, Dartein's now grown up daughter. She leads a very sheltered life far from her grandfather's Palace of the Nobles, and is zealously protected by her father and his loyal guards. War, however, threatens to break out once again and Dartein needs a blacksmith so that he can protect his daughter and the Keep. He seeks a blacksmith in the human village and, as fate would have it, Dartein comes back with Friesa, a skilled blacksmith who happens to be a female human. Nikkola and Friesa soon become very good friends; this will lead them to the Palace of the Nobles, and Nikkola's life will never be the same again.
Alicia Lynn Wright's Blood Ties: Nobles of Blood Book 2 is packed with a lot of imagination and peppered with action. Picking up from Book 1, author Alicia Lynn Wright once again brings us a story that is filled with twists and turns that will have us reeling at the end. Her characters are both likeable and relatable and this is in spite of the fact that they are mostly Nobles, not humans. This is especially true with Nikkola, the motherless young girl who, at the beginning, doesn't have a clue about the magic that she has within her royal fingers. Blood Ties is a very engaging read and it makes the reader look forward to the next edition of this family saga of love, loyalty, sorrow, magic, power and a whole lot more!
