Blood of The Sorceress by Maggie Shayne

Sunday, January 13, 2013
Synopsis: Their Love was destiny. Was a curse to be their undoing?

As an ancient king’s favorite harem slave, Lilia committed the worst of all possible crimes: loving another man. When the king discovered her treason, her lover was sentenced to lose his soul and linger in eternal imprisonment, and Lilia herself was executed alongside her sisters. While they reincarnated through countless lifetimes, she lingered alone between worlds for thousands of years, waiting for the moment to rescue her beloved Demetrius.

Now that moment has come. Demetrius has broken free, but without his soul and in the thrall of the same high priest who betrayed them so long ago; he has become an icy, uncaring cad, devoting himself solely to pleasure and power. Somehow Lilia must convince him to reclaim his humanity, to abandon the enemy tempting him to give in to his selfish desires–or her life will be lost alongside his, both of them condemned to eternal damnation, eternal isolation, their love lost one final and irrevocable time.

Review: Blood of the Sorceress is the third in the series of The Portal by Maggie Shane. This book brings in the third sister Lila that has been waiting for her lover to escape from the underworld.  My main critique is that this book is not a totally independent read. The reader needs to have read the previous books to fully enjoy this third book. Ms. Shane could have helped a new reader to this series with more information and introductions.
Ms. Shane has well developed main and supporting characters.

The story bring back the sisters from the other two stories and it is great to see the warmth and support they give to each other even though they have lived separate lives through time. I was glad to see some loose ends tied up in the series and Lila’s true love find his soul. In whole, it is an enjoyable read of true love conquering time and place.
