Divine Blood (Guardians of the Maiden #1)

Rating: 4/5

“He was starlight, and wonder, and questions without answers.” 

Going into this book, I didn’t have a lot of expectations as I hadn’t heard of it until browsing through goodreads and it came up. Seeing that people were saying how similar it was to Lord of the Rings, The Cruel Prince, and Throne of Glass and they weren’t wrong.

Divine Blood follows Dyna, who had everything taken from her by the shadow demon and only when she discovers, she can fight back does she find her way to Cassiel, a celestial prince who wants nothing to do with her. That is until, he finds that she can lead him to the life that he always wanted. But, they must work together to seek what they desire as they aren’t the only ones who are looking.

Oh man, this book had everything that I love. Dyna, Cassiel, and Zev were the main highlights especially the dynamics between Dyna and Cassiel, they hate each other and it’s so good. There is a lot of character development on the way which is what I was hoping to see cause I lose interest in the characters if there is zero development or it’s written poorly.

Other than the characters, I loved the magical aspect as it had every magical creature you could think of and I found that very enjoyable. It really did feel like LOTR and Throne of Glass and those are two of my favorite series. I love how Beck went into detail of how these different magical creatures interact with each other because that something that I was hoping to see.

There really isn’t much to complain about except maybe there wasn’t a lot of progress in the characters journey but there were other things that made it worth while and I can’t wait for the second book! I would highly recommend if you’re looking for something similar to The Cruel Prince, Throne of Glass and LOTR.
