Review: The Emblazoned Red by Dawn McCullough-White

Once, in another world—a dark world, the world of Faetta—there lived paladins and pirates, tyrants and scallywags, vampires and the undead. In this world a revolution is brewing. The royalty of Sieunes are in chains, and those priests and paladins who follow the holy word of the gods are under attack. In the west, the kingdom of Kellerhald receives the fleeing priests in their temples of the paladins of Silvius, god of the Sky.
Here, a young woman has just passed her tests to become a paladin. A pirate crew raids along the Azez Sea. An undead creature, wielding great power, roams the graveyard of Yetta. And a lost soul, crying out from beyond the veil, seeks out a pure hearted warrior to hear its plea.
Amid the turmoil of the revolution, Ilka’s mettle is tested. Rescued by pirates, she ends up with an unlikely ally: the pirate captain himself. The newly trained paladin finds herself collaborating with the undead, working with a vampire, and worst of all, longing for revenge against the man who has ignited the revolution in Sieunes: Francois Mond...
Death of an Innocent. Rise of a Paladin.
Once again, I'm totally floored by this Authors' writting. This storyline is complex and mysterious. Constantly keeping you on your toes and guessing. I love the way all the diferent elements & characters entertwine to make a clear and exciting picture. The main character has quite a few good qualities without being over barring. Also, I really like the guest appearance by one of my favorite characters of all time. That really added to the overall dramatic aspect of the book. At least it did for me lol. The rest of the characters are full & interesting as well. Making this a wonderful read. I was pleasantly surprised by the ending and can not wait to get my hands on the rest of this trilogy. I will highly recommend this book to everyone I can.
