Blood Branded (The Mix-Blood: BOOK ONE)

NOW AVAILABLE ON AMAZON (eBook and Paperback)

Defiance is paid in blood.

Their time is up. The crimsons are coming, marching on Hammerstone to crush the rebellious grays who renounce their rule. The graybacks have defied the ban that forbids trade or alliances with other races.

Frafnar understands intolerance better than most. Every season the grayback settlements send tribute to their oppressive orc cousins, and Hammerstone is no exception. After Frafnar is denied the opportunity to join the tribute guard because of his mixed heritage, he leaps at the chance to prove himself when his father’s signal horn is left behind.

Smoke rises in the distance. Frafnar must warn Hammerstone of the threat and comes to realize that his people are struggling with what he’s faced all his life. Now he must fight alongside those he loves—and hates—to protect his home.

Can Hammerstone withstand the siege, or will it become the final gravesite in a failed rebellion?

When the crimsons strike, always remember…

…strength in blood.


If you’re a fan of the epic or high fantasy genres, coming of age stories, or action-packed tales with haughty orcs and mysterious magic, then you don’t want to miss Blood Branded.

“This was a quick read, having very short chapters. I enjoyed how there wasn’t too many details that needed to be absorbed, and the novel was very straight forward and easy to follow. I appreciate the low commitment style (those super lush books that beg for your attention can be so draining).” –Julie J, Librarian
