“A book bursting with complex and likeable characters as Durrant deftly fuses modern-day and centuries-old worlds in a classic good-versus-evil action story. The Blood She Betrayed is not without its lighter moments as Shahkara’s old-world language and her efforts to grapple with modern technology bring regular amusement, but at the heart of this story is her steely resolve to carry out her mission to destroy, regardless of the huge personal cost. Durrant peels away the layers to reveal a tantalising climax.” Full review here.
