“Kylie Griffin has me hooked.”

About the Author

Kylie Griffin’s obsession with all things paranormal/fantasy started at an early age, when she used to imagine the jacaranda tree in her front yard was a spaceship used to defend the world from invading enemies. Writing stories seemed a natural extension to her childhood adventures. 
Today, she’s a primary school teacher sharing her love for the written word with young children. In her spare time, she writes and reads all things paranormal.

Kylie lives in a small rural village in outback New South Wales, Australia, and is involved in a number of volunteer emergency organizations, helping during fires, storms, search and rescue efforts, and road accidents.

I have to say this cover is the best thing I've seen in years. Wonderful to see Varian shown as he is portrayed in the story. I can't tell you how this satisfies me. Too often publishers mess up the cover and it doesn't reflect the character portrayed. That bugs me to no end. THANK YOU for such a wonderful cover!!

This is a love story between a human and a human/demon (Na'Chi). Between a woman of faith and a scout that has more than his share of inner demons. It's a story of survival, how two races can learn to tolerate each other and work together. Nothing is ever easy. Kymora is strong in her faith, loved by her people, confident, yet willing to show her fears and vulnerabilites. For Varian it's about deciding what's best for his people no matter the cost, learning to adapt, being able to show emotion and that it isn't a weakness as he was taught all his life. Kylie Griffin handled the balance between the two perfectly.

I kept hoping to hear more on Arek's capture. He had a concussion and they were forcing him to run/walk? Yeah I kept thinking about that. I'm left wondering why no one from the city went back to recover Arek's body. If they had they'd know he's alive. That was my main disappointment with this story. So on that note, I am sure the next book will be about Arek. I hope.

My other question was about the Templer Elect amulet. Kymora gives up her office. Then in one sentence she notices Varian wearing "the necklace that used to be hers". So is Varian now the Templer Elect? That just didn't make sense. If he is, he'd have to have the full approval of the temple and voted on. I can't see that happening because he isn't very strong in following the Lady.

Alliance Forged by Kylie Griffin is the second book of her Light Blade series, and if you remember from my review of Vengeance Born, this is romance urban fantasy. Griffin does a masterful job of creating this worldbuilding, of Humans (Light Blade), Na'Reish (demons), and Na'Chi (half human/demons). The story picks up shortly after Vengeance Born left off, when Kalan, the Chosen of the Light Blade, forces his command of the Council and Soldiers, by allowing Na'Chi to be part of their alliance, and his commitment to Annika, a NaChi, as his mate. In order to win the ungoing war with the Na'Reish, the two sides need to join hands to work together to defeat the enemy.

But prejudice is still a big issue for many to accept the Na'Chi as friends. Alliance Forged is a dual story, showing how prejudice threatens to divide the Light Blade soldiers, with friends turning against each other. Those that are willing to work with the strong Na'Chi and those who refuse to accept them as allies. The other part is the romance between two unlikely pairings, but one that you saw the start of in Vengeance Born.

Kymora is Kalan's sister, she is the priestess, the Temple Elect. Kymora, who is also blind, speaks for the Lady, who is the human's deity. Kymora is such a wonderful character. She cares about others, and you marvel at how she can get around her blindness. She uses her gift, being able to sense aura's and has worked to perfect that gift. Kymora believes she has a destiny that the Lady expects her to fulfill, and that is to bring the Na'Chi and Humans together to help save them all.

Varian is the leader of the Na'Chi. We met Varian in Vengeance Born, when he led his people to follow Annika and Kalan when they returned the Sacred Lake.

Alliance Forged by Kylie Griffin
Paranormal Romance -July 3rd, 2012
4 stars

In Alliance Forged, the war between humans and the Na'Reish demons is bitter and fierce. But a small group of half-breed demon/humans named Na'Chi have found an uneasy pact with the human leader. However the strong prejudice against them makes life difficult. When their village is attacked by humans who are supposed to uphold justice it appears that a rebellion may doom their treaty.

The half-breed leader Varian, feels the weight of his people. He constantly feels he must try to keep his demon side in check even though it make him powerful than a regular human. He secretly cares for the blind, human priestess Kymora Tayn. However, Varian is scarred and knows even those of his clan do not find him attractive. He is resigned to being alone. But when his village is attacked and the visiting Kymora is left defenseless he runs to her rescue. When he saves her, their time together becomes intense and their admiration and respect for each other turns into feeling of affection, passion and love. But can their newfound love endure hatred and prejudice on both sides?

The author writes a novel that romance readers will cherish. As two lonely and lost souls find acceptance and love. Reading Varian and Kymora finally find another person who understands and cares for them was very touching to read. Each sees into the heart of the other person. I liked how the blind Kymora pursues Varian early in the story because Varian feels that he is not worthy. Neither have experienced love or tender affection and it was sweet to read them discovering each other. While I admired Kymora's compassion and courage (she is no push over), Varian was the true star of this book.
