Book Synopsis (Goodreads): The Blood of Titans is a unique love story set in the Golden Age of Africa. It is the tale of Halima, a teenage princess who falls in love with a warrior king. Enormous obstacles lie in the way of their happiness.

I don't think I have ever a read a book quite like this one. It captivated me from the very beginning and I found myself many times unwilling to place it down until it was completed. It took me less than a day to finish this, and I have to say in honesty that I wish it had not ended, or that there would at least be a part two of some sort. Blood of Titans tells of a young princess forced to marry a king to help form an alliance in an upcoming war, but when ambushed on the way to her wedding her to be husband flees from battle.
I don't want to tell you anymore and spoil anything for anyone so I'm now gonna go into all the things i really enjoyed about this book and I have to tell you there are quite a few things.
One thing I really liked were the proverbs that can be found placed around the book in appropriate situations relating to them. I believe that they gave it a more believable feel. The maxims just helped in drilling into the readers mind the situation. The characters were lovable, with their strength in themselves and wisdom beyond their years. They have great loyalty in those they love. In this story love still prevails even if it's not in the way everyone expects it. This story teaches you many proverbs, lesson of strength and love, and that no matter what happens you have to continue on. No matter how many times you are knocked down, stand up and remember who you are, no matter how many times you are shackled you must break free. For no one can weigh you down for you hold in you the blood of Titans.
"'Why must life change?' 'Life is change'"
"For the first time she saw why some called nature 'mother', and felt safe in her bosom."
"All kingdoms last but a time, and then they become part of the past."
"Your children will know grandeur and they will know despair. They will walk as kings and they will walk i chains. But they will always have courage for in them is the blood of titans."
All In All:
Like I said before, this book is not like any other books I have read in the past and believe me when I tell you, I have read quite the collection. It's not hard to fall in love with such a unique story six ways from Sunday and back. I truly recommend grabbing a copy and seeing for yourself.
