The Bonds of Blood (The Revenant Wyrd Saga #1) 

In the world of Saracin, the Goddess damns the earth that killed her two beloved angels and tears it into six realms. As a reminder of their transgression, each person is branded with a stigmata on their palms as testament of their home realm and their separation from the Goddess.

Thirty years later, in the Holy Realm, Jovian, Angelica, Amber, and Joya, quadruplets whose mother died in childbirth, have just reached their 21st spring and are now adults. When terrible visions depicting the downfall of their family stir within Jovian and Angelica, they struggle to make sense of what they have seen while trying to live a normal life.

After Amber is kidnapped in the night, her three siblings are drawn into a dangerous pursuit across the Great Realms to find her. With every step they uncover more mystery surrounding their families past, and something far worse--an ancient enemy that could threaten their hope of ever seeing Amber alive again.

Will this enemy grant the answers they seek, or will she fray the tenuous threads binding them to their old lives?   Buy The Bonds of Blood today and enter a dangerous world of magic!


I had the opportunity to review one of Travis Simmons previous books and loved it.  So, when I was asked if I wanted to review his new series, I jumped at the chance.  I have not been disappointed so far.  This first book is a great start to what promises to be a great series.  The Bonds of Blood is the perfect book for anyone that loves fantasy.

It is a little confusing in the beginning with all of the characters and the setting.  Of course, I find this quite common in many fantasy books since it is a totally fictional world and people.  It doesn't take very long to get your bearings though.  Once you do, you will be hooked.  When you finish, you will be jumping at the chance to start the next book. 

Travis Simmons is a master at storytelling.  He weaves a wonderful tale of suspense and intrigue.  I love the sibling bonds in this book.  I wish my kids would've had the same bond when they were growing up.

Readers young and old will love this one.  It is the perfect book for males and females alike.  There is something for everyone.  Of course, you need to be a fantasy lover, which I am.  I give this one 4 1/2 stars.

About the Author
Travis has been writing since he was 14.  He began writing a book called "The Calling of the Two" and while writing that on and off he started uncovering another idea.

"Yes, this is all well and good, but what about before? What happened in the world before these characters came into it?" He always knew there was a "before" and as he started wondering about it he got ideas. At first they were little ideas but as he discovered the names for his characters a whole story about them emerged.
Travis started working on The Revenant Wyrd Saga several years back and he is very happy he did because hearing and documenting Jovian and Angelica's story has been one wild ride for him.  He has also written the Infernal Design series.

He lives in a small town at the base of the Adirondack Mountains and hoofing around my neck of the woods gives him a ton of inspiration for his novels.   He loves research, and speculating on different ideas and theories.
