Synopsis

LOVE FOR BLOOD OR HONOR

Kendra, an Egyptologist and demi-god in waiting, is the key to unlocking Bakari, the Egyptian God of Death, from his cursed slumber. Desperate to free him, she inadvertently binds herself to the god with a spell that only death will undo. To save Bakari from himself, she may have to sacrifice her innocence, and possibly her soul, before he becomes his family’s worst enemy.

HAUNTED BY SINS OF THE PAST

Bakari awakens to a world at war and a beautiful woman who has tethered his soul to hers. In the wake of his self-destruction Kendra is his only hope of salvation, but another has vowed to keep Bakari from the one thing he craves most– his Parvana. His butterfly.

***Cianna – #NerdGirlSunshine’s  Review***
Fantastic! Jean Murray has yet to disappoint me with her writing! I’m not really a paranormal romance lover. I tend to find too many of them are stuck on the erotic side of things, and not enough on the characters, story, or even backstory. That is not the case in Murray’s series. From the very beginning this author has taken time to craft a well thought out complex storyline, and pulled together complex and unique characters and situations.

In the second book of the series, we come to where book 1 ended. Bakari is trapped by Kepi, and only Kendra has the power to free him, and even when she does, there’s still so much more to do. There’s a dark plot in the underworld and a traitor amongst the gods, and only Bakari knows who it is, and his memory has been blocked out. I loved this story line. Kendra is the youngest of the three sisters, and the most inexperienced, so she always feels like she isn’t contributing or can’t do anything, but in this book she proves herself smart, capable, and a warrior just like her other sisters. She comes out of her shell, and develops into one of my favorite characters, but not always do you need to wield a sword to be a warrior.

An amazing paranormal romance book from Jean Murray! Fans of paranormal, historical, urban fantasy and erotic romance will all love this series! I highlight recommend you start it now!
