5 Stars for Blood of Salar (Masters and Mages #2) by Alexis Duran #MM #Erotica #Fantasy @AlexisSDuran


Title: Blood of Salar (Masters and Mages #2)
Author Name: Alexis Duran
Publication Date: March 3, 2015


M’lan, headmaster of the order of Ka’alar and Jamil Jarka, king’s assassin, find their impossible love challenged to the utmost as a rebellion sweeps them apart, sending Jamil on a dangerous mission to assassinate the rebel leader, General Charvat.  Unknown to anyone, Charvat is on his way to the temple to exploit the headmaster’s magical abilities.


When the rebel army arrives, M’lan is thrust into a struggle against political and sexual dominance as Charvat attempts to break his resistance. Violence and death mount, awakening within M’lan both the powers of destruction and the desire for revenge.


On the trail of his prey, Jamil begins to question his devotion to M’lan as his once innocent lover transforms into a mage and invades the assassin’s thoughts and dreams.  The closer Jamil draws to M’lan, the more he puts his life and his very soul at risk.  Jamil soon realizes that his lover might prove to be more deadly than the man he was sent to kill.


A final confrontation between assassin and monk might destroy them both, but Jamil is relentless in his determination to rescue M’lan, for he knows that only his love can master the mage.


Blood of Salar drops me into an already-built world, a rich tapestry of fantasy description and conflict. Only fair, being a sequel. But reading the first book (Touch of Salar) isn’t necessary. Duran catches me up. There are lovers. It is fraught. War is at hand.
The sex scenes are hot and plentiful. The plot itself is slow-moving, full of characters’ thoughts and meandering travels. Stuff I prefer to read, but if you’re looking for something action-packed, this may not be the book.
Gods and magic play a heavy role in the dealings of men, which requires a certain suspension of belief. Unless, like me, you’re cheering too hard for M’lan and Jamil to find each other and save the world to worry about small details.
I loved Duran’s To Catch a Threeve, also. Blood of Salar is a cut above.
