Bloodlust – Rise of the Iliri

BloodlustRise of the Iliri series by Auryn Hadley.
The series will exist out of ten books. Seven are already published.
And I will tell you about the first book.

Bloodlust book number one.

In the first installment you meet Private Salryc Luxx, she’s an Iliri. She lives on the world called Ogun. The place is overrun by humans who feel superior towards “her kind”.
Her kind was bred by humans thousands of years ago for the sole purpose of protection. There was only one thing the humans didn’t want to acknowledge; that the Iliri were dangerous predators, bred to kill.

Salryc Luxx is a predator, but not only this faceless predator.  She is the only pure illri female still alive.  Her Illri heritage is marked by the ears on top of her head and by powers nobody can resist.  Not even the humans. She was “raised” by humans, not knowing what she is, she tries to be human. Nothing more than that. Only she never will be, the milky white skin, long white hair, pale inhuman eyes, they will always scream Iliri.
She was a slave until she decided to do something about it.  She bit a military officer on the shoulder and is sent to the army. At only eighteen she starts working her way up, to reach the Black Blades, the best elite force of the army of the Conglomerate of Free Citizens. Being a Black Blade will get her as close to freedom as an Iliran can. And she wants to be a part of it.

This first book tells the story how she becomes a Black Blade and how she discovers who she is. I don’t want to tell too much about the book. You have to read this one for yourself. I liked the writing style in this book, i was hooked from the first moment i started. How the writer describes the world Salryc Luxx lives in, is detailed and well explained.
I like the details in books and this one is on the top of my list with how it is described. I didn’t find that much moments where you think, oke now this is going to happen, which is great. And you start to feel with Salryc, being different. It even made me mad sometimes. I love the other characters, Zep, Blaec, Risk, Jase (cyno), Arctic, Shift and Razor. How they all grow with Salryc and being this a Reverse Harem book, how they love her for who she is.

The first book got me hooked to Salryc’s story, and I read them one after the other.

I recommend these books, i really do. Start reading the first. And if you want to know more about the other books. Read my other reviews about them.
