Book Description

***ACCLAIM FOR THE BONDS OF BLOOD***

"I couldn't put the first book down! I read it in one weekend." ~ Cinnamon Hollow

"I love the way the author describes all of the amazing scenery and the creatures. I feel like I am right in the book with all of these people." ~ mistee dawn

"It had a driving story that induced a lot of just. one. more. page syndrome." ~ Brooke

***

In the world of Saracin, the Goddess damns the earth that killed her two beloved angels and tears it into six realms. As a reminder of their transgression, each person is branded with a stigmata on their palms as testament of their home realm and their separation from the Goddess.

Thirty years later, in the Holy Realm, Jovian, Angelica, Amber, and Joya, quadruplets whose mother died in childbirth, have just reached their 21st spring and are now adults. When terrible visions depicting the downfall of their family stir within Jovian and Angelica, they struggle to make sense of what they have seen while trying to live a normal life.

After Amber is kidnapped in the night, her three siblings are drawn into a dangerous pursuit across the Great Realms to find her. With every step they uncover more mystery surrounding their families past, and something far worse--an ancient enemy that could threaten their hope of ever seeing Amber alive again.

From the Author

What fans of dark fantasy are saying about The Bonds of Blood:

"There was a ton of creative concepts in the various subplots, monsters, etc." ~ Dylax

"The author's use of existing folklore and mythology in a delightful patchwork makes for interesting (and unexpected) turns and twists as the story goes on." ~ Hawlk37

"For my part, those who love Fantasy and Works of Imagination will not go wrong in giving Travis Simmons' The Bonds of Blood their divine and enchanted attention. Chant your sorcerer's spell and invoke the Download button to Feed your Fantasies." ~ Bruce J Blanchard

* * *

Events build to a dramatic conclusion in this epic fantasy of family ties. On a hunting trip Jovian is attacked by a demon destroyed ages ago when the last of the fallen angels were driven into hiding. Angelica is plagued by haunting visions depicting the fall of her family. Joya begins hearing voices and communicates with a geometry book that calls forth the destructive force of Wyrd within her. Amber is stolen in the night, and a being who calls himself "Grigori" seeks the destruction of the Neferis name. Even before a rescue attempt can be made for Amber, the family comes under attack by forces they are not ready to face. The adventure becomes one haunted by mystical creatures and events as two forces try to help them, and hinder them. With every step more and more questions arise.There are seemingly no answers until they are confronted with an ancient enemy of their family. Will this enemy grant the answers they seek, or will she fray the tenuous threads binding them to their old lives?

4.0 out of 5 stars Exciting begining to an exciting new series June 30, 2011
By Hawlk37
Format:Paperback
The Bonds of Blood is an excellent start to what looks like is an excellent new fantasy series. The characters are likable and interesting, and the world itself is deep and complex. The author's use of existing folklore and mythology in a delightful patchwork makes for interesting (and unexpected) turns and twists as the story goes on. Definitely not your average dragons, damsels in distress, and knights story. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Definitely Worth The Read! May 1, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I received a complimentary copy of The Bonds of Blood by Travis Simmons as a member of Beck Valley Book Tours. All opinions are my own.

I really enjoyed The Bonds Of Blood by Travis Simmons. In fact, I'm enjoying and will be reviewing the entire The Revenant Wyrd Saga series. Being a book about magic and sorcery and different realms there are some words that are hard to pronounce so you'll just have to sort of go with the flow. But Travis Simmons does a wonderful job of describing the scenes and the characters. It was easy for me to envision Jovian and his sisters, their clothes, the beasts and visions they encountered, etc.

Jovian, Angelica, Amber, and Joya are wonderful characters. I love how they are written and how they interact as siblings. Their love, concern and connection to each other is refreshing. I also love that even though this is a book about a magical realm, the characters really interact with each other in a traditional way. The brother and sisters joke with each other. They laugh and have fun. It's not just all magic. They eat a lot of breakfast too. bacon, eggs, etc. I was hungry for breakfast food the entire time I was reading it! HA!

One thing that confused me at times was the time period. The story feels medieval and you have that sense while you're reading. The weapons, the language. But the clothing and where they live (on a plantation) reminds me of Cival War era. So I felt like I was being yanked back and forth a bit as I was envisioning the story in my mind. It was confusing, but really cool! I love getting the feel of different era's and the "mystic-ness" of this series. It will certainly draw you in.

In fact, I couldn't put the first book down! I read it in one weekend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sparked My Imagination April 10, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Travis Simmons' book The Bonds of Blood was one of the best fantasy books I have read in a long time! In the beginning it was a little hard to keep up with what was going on because of the many point of views but as I read I became familiar with Mr. Simmons' style of writing. His descriptions were very vivid and clear.

The story of Jovian and his sisters, Amber, Angelica, and Joya begins with mystery. When their 21st birthday arrives they receive gifts from their deceased mother that they later learn will become more important to them than when they first received them. For years a secret has been hidden from the siblings that may or may not have prevented them from the mission of having to save their sister Amber who was kidnapped from her bedroom.

*Spoilers*
This first book of the series really helps you to grow with the characters. You're there with them when they lose their virginity and as they figure out their strengths and weaknesses. I really connected with Joya as she struggled with what is right and what is wrong. I can't wait to read the second book to see which direction she levitates toward. I'm also interested in finding out how Jovian will be brought back and if this family will end up with the weight of their entire realm on their shoulders.

I recommend this Series to anyone who loves fantasy or mythical books.There are so many different races and I'm sure there might be even more within the other realms, that will surely spark your imagination!

5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting Read! May 2, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
As with any book that uses unconventional names and story lines, this book takes a little to get used to. I was really thankful that the author provided useful background information in the beginning and repeated names and story lines so that the reader is prepared for the rest of the story. Since this book is about different realms, magic and fantasy the additional information is very useful.

The story is based on quadruplets: Jovian, Angelica, Amber and Joya. The four siblings interact well together and yet each have their own distinctive personalities. There are six different realms in the story and these siblings are from one of them. When Amber is kidnapped, the rest must travel across the realms to find her. As they travel, they unravel new secrets and of course, must contend with evil.

Overall the book was a wonderful read! I can't wait to read the other two books in the series!

5.0 out of 5 stars Definitely a good read! Give it a fair chance! January 12, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
When I first started reading the book, I was a bit confused. The relationships of the main characters, the introduction of new characters, and some of the setting details (yes, I paint a picture as I read) were not very clear and somewhat choppy. I kept on truckin through the book and was I happy I did.

As I got deeper into the book, it all kinda came together. I loved the storyline! It was full of suspense and emotion. You really began to feel what the characters were feeling. Travis did a great job leaving you on the edge of your seat as the journey continued.

There was a ton of creative concepts in the various subplots, monsters, etc. This really helps a reader like myself, as I visualize as I read. I could picture this as a movie in my head. I kinda felt like I was lifted from my reality and places inside the book!

I can wait to see the next installment of the series.
