About the Book

Once upon a time, there was a princess with no notion of right and wrong, and a queen a thousand times more twisted.

In the realm of Tenebris, home to the unseelie folk, curses are served for breakfast with a side of betrayal.

Vlari was born a threat to Queen Morgana. She survived her wrath because she never stepped out of line.

Until one night. One man. One war.

Now that she’s unchained, Vlari’s consumed by a desire to drain the lives of all those around her. And yet her decisions shape the fate of the entire realm of the fae.

Sometimes the world needs a hero. In a land of shadows, it might just need a monster.

Ruled by Blood is a tale of magic, secrets, and schemes, perfect for fantasy readers who enjoy a dash of romance.

This version combines both parts: Wicked Court and Shadow Cursed.


Eeeee! The fae are back! I LOVE a good fae book and this one was such a great addition to those reads. Set in a typical cruel and wild world of creatures and nature, Ruled by Blood brings us a delightful cast of dreadful characters. And on top of that there is A LOT that happens in this book! So be prepared for a whirlwind of emotions!

This book does take a little bit of time to get into. There’s just so much to wrap your head around and that mixed with the ethereal writing just takes a hot minute to get used to. BUT, once you do adjust hold on tight because wow was this a thrilling story! There is just so much for you to devour within. But I think my favorite part of this book were all of the different types of fae that we got to meet along the way.

This duology bound in one is such an amazing read though. It’s been a little bit since I’ve read a new fae book so I was super happy to get back into the mix of these delightfully terrible creatures. There’s something just so comforting being surrounded by a cast of characters that are perfectly imperfect.
