Add it to Goodreads
In a sealed-off city, it begins with a hunt. A young woman, Lena, running for her life, convicted of being a mage and sentenced to death. Her only way to survive is to trust those she has been brought up to fear - those with magic.

On the other side of the locked gates is a masked lady, Constance, determined to find a way back in. She knows only too well how the people of Duke's Forest loathe magic. Years ago she escaped before her powers were discovered. But now she won't hide who she is any longer.

A powerful and terrifying storm cloud unites them. It descends over the dukedom and devastates much in its wake. But this is more than a thunderstorm. This is a spell, and the truth behind why it has been cast is more sinister than anyone can imagine ... Only Lena and Constance hold the key to destroying the spell. Though neither of them realise it, they need each other. They are the blood and they have the thunder within.

Kelly's Thoughts


As it grew closer, the fleck transformed into a rider on a dark horse, a long silvery cloak billowing. Emeris had noticed him too. The rider was galloping straight towards towards their carriage and Emris's mouth set itself into a firm, thin line. He pulled on the reins and the two horses drawing the carriage stopped, bizarrely, in the air. Floating.

I'm currently reading We Are Blood and Thunder for the second time, the first time I only reached a few chapters in and wasn't particularly in the mood for a fantasy read at the time. I'm so glad I picked it back up again and absolutely loving it this time around. Mages, strong female characters and an incredible and intricate world building.
