Naomi lives in the north Olympic Peninsula and is mom to 3 and a Pomeranian. She has always been a fan of historical fiction, fantasy and science fiction and is known for having waited in line for seven hours for the opening of both the original Star Wars and Star Trek films.
Having been an accountant for more than twenty-five years, Naomi is now turning her attention full time to continuing The Two Moons of Rehnor series and the Time Tripping Adventure series as dreaming of fictional people is far more interesting than reconciling ledgers.

I am really enjoying this series. The books really tie together well and this book has some real surprises in it. I continue to be enthralled with Senya and Katie. Although I sometimes want to kill them for being so dense they can't see their love for each other. Sort of like real life I think. I think I'll keep reading and find out if they figure it out.
This is one of the most compelling series I have ever read. Interestingly written from each characters own perspective. Sci-fi mixed with romance and a massive amount of action. Something for absolutely everyone!
Senya still can't catch a break but at least this time he's fighting back. Katie has misunderstood him yet again but Senya is coming through, fighting back and going to win his woman. (We hope!)
I am now desperate for him to leap up and kick butt big time. All that power held in check cannot possibly be good for him!
Looking forward to reading book 4
P.S. I did buy it on amazon.co.uk but I have no verified purchase button on my reviewing page. Maybe Senya zapped it away!
I became hooked on J. Naomi Ay's epic fantasy series after reading Thad's Mistake, and she never disappoints. In Of Blood and Angels, we find our hero, Senya, both literally and figuratively, fighting demons. Senya's godlike qualities, which he only began to understand in My Enemy's Son, have manifested, and his understanding of how to use those powers has blossomed, like the nuclear wasted planet Rozari, which he fertilizes with his own blood. Senya's blood brings life, and unless he spills it repeatedly and often, he suffers physical symptoms that threaten not only his life, but the lives of those around him.
We saw Senya marry Katie Golden in My Enemy's Son, and witnesses the strain Senya's royal heritage brought to the marriage. Now, somewhat reconciled to the fact of Senya's imperial obligations, Katie becomes pregnant. During her pregnancy, fears of their child's possible ascension to the throne and Senya's increasing indifference, causes Katie to run away from Rozari. She is offered a promotion to Captain of a starship and stays on the ship until her child is born, thus preventing them from ever being a monarch of Rehnor.
Of Blood and Angels is a fitting continuation of a great series. We learn more about whom Senya is and why he must do what he must do. I have recommended this series before, but after reading Of Blood and Angels, I say go get The Boy who Lit up the Sky today and get started on this truly larger-than-life series.
