The BookWhisperer's Rating:

I was just a reporter, trying to stay ahead of my student loans. I knew the rules, and I followed them.
I thought I knew how the world worked—humans lived their petty little lives in the safety of the sun. We loved and fought and—when the sun sank—we scurried behind our walls and lived in fear. That is when the monsters came out to play.
And even in the safety of the sun, we knew who ruled us.
The Houses. And their Scions.
Everyone knows the great Houses and their Scions—they are feared and loved and hated and envied. They are the gods who walk the shadows and rule all of our lives. They are salvation and death.
And somehow, I am one of them.

I don’t even know how Nazarea Andrews does it.  How she dreams up these vivid worlds that contain unthought-of danger, a unique level of paranormal, intense love, and absolute awesomeness, I will never know.  I just wanna jump inside her head and take a peek one day but then I am sure my tiny mind would explode in all of her brilliance.  It brings me joy that I have found her and labeled her one of my favorite authors.

Did I love the novella before this? Yes! Did I love The Blood Scion just as much? No! *SCREECH* WHAT? Yeah, I said it right.  I didn’t love TBS as much as I loved The Scionless House, I loved it more and for so many reasons.

First, I loved it because Nazarea Andrews wrote it.  It is like pure gold.  How she writes both Farley and O’s point of view shows what a tremendous author she is.  In the first book we really only got to know O – we learned the history of the house and the history of the last Scion.  In this book we get so much more.  Farley is introduced and man is she fantastic.  She is badass to the core.  Finding out that she is being summed by O’s sire, Farley flees to her brother Winston’s house (she still is badass though.)  From this point, Farley learns a lot about her past that she didn’t know.  This new knowledge brings her to the Raven’s house where she becomes their Scion, a hard job. It also doesn’t help that sexy pants O is her sworn protector and in general a badass as well. 

Now without giving away anything that will ruin your fun in reading this amazing book, I am going to stop right there and give some more praise to N.  I know this is going to be an amazing series filled with dark twist and turns that will keep me glued to the pages.  I also know that these two characters, Farley and O, are going to be nothing short of fantastic.  I am already rooting for this forbidden love between the two of them and for them in general.  I want nothing more than Farley to succeed because I am already attached to her.  I also want O to be happy because I like his character.  He has become more dimensional in this book than just a Blade or protector.  There is also Sulla who makes me happy for an unknown reason.  And then to top it off, there is this well thought out, original story that just flows from the pages.  The only thing else that would make this better is if I had the next book in this series.
