Yes, each title can be read as a thumping good stand-alone book, but your experience of Blackthorn will be so much more compelling, enriching, awesome, if you start with Book 1: Blood Shadows…
What sets Lindsay J Pryor apart:
Best: The characters—but then they have always rocked the Blackthorn series.
Best: The dark, dark atmosphere—sure, you'll want to travel the world of Blackthorn, but only if you’re armed.
Best: Hot heroes—you want to die for.
Best: Smart heroines—you want to be.
Best: Ms. Pryor does not shy away from rough and brutal...and sizzling
Best: Fluid, engaging prose—reading Blackthorn is kind of a hologram experience, with the action/characters/settings playing out in 3D, right in front of you.
Worst: Bastard cliffhangers…having to wait for the next book in the series.
Now, because this post is keeping me from finishing Blood Bound I’ll leave you to go find your wallet so you can buy—no, invest, in the entire Blackthorn series. But, because I’m a helpful soul (and I empathize with those of you who are nosier (more curious) that cats in a maze, I've provided some key links you can follow to find all you need on Ms Pryor: Buy links, Biography, Q&As (worth reading, Lindsay’s journey as a writer is enthralling), Interviews etc.
