'Bloodchild' By Anna Stephens Gets Official Synopsis, Plus Updates On UK Edition Books I Look Forward To

Here is to kicking off the new year!

As mentioned on one of my old blog posts, I do collect UK edition books but rarely. Examples of the books that belong in this category are Scott Lynch's Gentlemen Bastard series, Samantha Shannon's The Bone Season series, and a select signed limited hardcover editions only sold at Anderida Books.

This year of 2019, I have already bought a signed limited hardcover edition of King of Assassins by RJ Barker (thanks, Anderida), preordered The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon, posted some cover and other details for Crowfall by Ed McDonald, and soon Anna Stephens' Bloodchild will have it's official cover revealed as well. I have preordered a copy along with a few other interesting titles. You should do the same.

So for those of you wondering where I get my UK edition books, and/or hardcovers that are not available in most bookstores: Anderida Books is the answer.

For now, read on for the synopsis of Bloodchild by Anna Stephens that I was able to get from Goodreads.

In this epic grimdark conclusion to the Godblind Trilogy, heroes, armies, and gods both good and evil will battle one last time, with the fate of the world itself at stake... The great city of Rilpor has fallen. Its walls have crumbled under the siege by the savage Mireces; its defenders have scattered, fleeing for their lives; its new rulers plot to revive the evil Red Gods using the city's captured, soon-to-be-sacrificed citizens. Now, with the Fox God leading the shattered remnants of the Rilporian defence and the Mireces consolidating their claim on the rest of the country, it's up to Crys, Tara, Mace, Dom and the rest to end the Red Gods' scourge once and for all. While the Rilporians plan and prepare for one final, cataclysmic battle to defeat their enemies, the Blessed One and the king of the Mireces have plans of their own: dark plans that will see gods resurrected and the annihilation of the Dancer for all time. Key to their plan is Rillirin, King Corvus's sister, and the baby--the Bloodchild--she carries. As both sides face their destinies and their gods, only one thing is clear: death waits for them all.

Bloodchild by Anna Stephens will be released on August 22, 2019.
