The lion awakens. The mountain bleeds.
After killing the owner of a brutal slave operation and escaping his camp with Connor’s help, Mairead is relieved to be reunited with her beloved and back on course toward her rightful place as Queen of Taura.
But a strange lost tribe from the mountains of Culidar has other plans for her. They claim she is their prophesied Deliverer—the one who will lead them to their inheritance on the plains of Culidar. She is “bloodbonded”—connected to the very soil and spirit of Culidar, destined to lead the lion tribe from its hiding place in the mountains down to the plains.
There’s only one problem: the lions hate the ravenmarked.
The lion tribe has long exiled men who bear the Morrag’s mark, and those men still live on the mountain, waiting for their Deliverer. Mairead is faced with bringing peace between the ravens and the lions, as well as asserting her own role in the tribe. But even as she faces dissent within the tribe, Connor faces a growing madness that threatens to consume him—and prove that the lions have every reason to fear the ravenmarked. Can Mairead bring peace to the tribe, the plains, or even her own beloved?
Set against a backdrop of romance, political instability, and magic, Bloodbonded is the second in a five-book epic fantasy series titled The Taurin Chronicles.

Praise for Ravenmarked (The Taurin Chronicles, Book 1)
“Amazing story! I loved how realistic the characters were and how much I was able to lose myself in the world Amy Rose Davis created. Strong women and not too many story lines. If only more fantasy we like this. Can’t wait for the next book.” — Jeannie, Amazon reviewer, 5 of 5 stars
“The world in this novel is rich and deep–the cultures and traditions feel established and real. The history between the characters and cultures is interesting and adds so much to the atmosphere and feel of the novel. We learn so much without being directly told about it, and given the depth of history that is to be revealed, that’s quite an amazing feat.” — Rachel B., Amazon reviewer, 5 of 5 stars
“Going into this book I knew very little about the story, but became hooked in the very first chapter! Amy has created a unique world with an interesting magic system and great political intrigue all tied together by the prophesy of a coming queen. She has managed to create a compelling epic fantasy without using the standard tropes usually associated with one. And while there are no elves or dwarves, the supernatural creatures of her own design will make you want to find out more about this extraordinary new world.” — Jennie Ivins, Fantasy Faction reviewer, 9 of 10 stars (Full review here.)
