I enjoyed the twist in this book, the knowledge that not only was the prophet alive but that the Daeva's weren't Druj AND Victor was friends with the Prophet 200 yrs ago. I will admit that those memories of Tommas, when they hit Nazafareen, which wasn't nearly as often as one would expect, hit a little harder because of it. Tommas was good people and I am still not over the fact that he died though I have not shed a single tear for Ilyas. Yes, I'm still on that. And on that note, I hate that Myrri died even more than I hated Tomma's death probably because I got to spend more time with Myrri and I hate what her death is doing to Tijah, but I have hope that her future will brighten with the new Daeva, Achaemenes. He is a lot like Mirry was, but where she was like a twin sister in some ways, I think Achaemenes could be more, Like Nazafareen and Darius are to each other. I am very much looking forward to what book 3 will bring not just for the characters I already know and LOVE but also for characters like Delilah whom we've spent so little time with and Achaemenes who already earned a place in my heart.
The story also occasionally switches to Balthazar's POV. I enjoyed going into his mind and discovering his past. Understanding his thirst for knowledge and learning about his relationship with the evil queen.
For me, I wish this story moved a little faster. Some areas could of been condensed or omitted. Nazafareen's actions in certain parts of the story also annoyed me. I still look forward to reading the next book. Hopefully book 3 will have more weight.
Although the Blood of the Prophet didn't quite equal the Midnight Sea, I enjoyed it just the same. Maybe it was because I had become familiar with this strange other world, with daeva's, waterdogs, bonding, druj, and wights, and I had gotten to know the characters, and knew most of their names.
I just bought the third book in the trilogy and can't wait to start reading.
I can highly recommend this awesome author Kat Ross.

A thousand years earlier, maybe more
It's volume 2 of a fantasy history of the Persian Empire circa 300BC. Eskender the Greek (you know him as Alexander the Great) is busily conquering Persia, while the Necromancer of Bactria is invading with an army of undead. So a blend of history and fantasy.
The prophet Zoroaster (aka Zarathustra, depends who's asking) has been imprisoned for a couple of hundred years by the Magi, who run the empire. Magic is involved, of course - this is a fantasy novel. There is quite a lot of magical stuff - necromancy, mysterious trans-dimensional lakes, so forth.
It's also a love story - rather sweet
I loved the first book - I'm currently on the third one. Book 2 is well written but perhaps it loses a star because I feel it really serves only to link #1 and #3
