The Balancer

The Balancer

Series: The Blessing Giver, Book 4
Genre: Fantasy Romance
Publisher: Florid Romance

Aedra’s refuge is her curse.

After a brutal attack that left her pregnant with a mixed-blood child, Aedra fled from the laws of the Balancer enclave to protect her daughter Fina. But her quiet, protected life is shattered when the magic that once dominated their realm evaporates, and people she used to call friends seek vengeance on any members of the Order.

She must protect her daughter at all costs.

Brion, a Blessing Giver, is entrusted to suppress the rising unrest within the enclaves. Guided by Paladin (The Blessing Giver), he’s led to Aedra’s doorstep for help, only to uncover a truth that fractures his world: Fina, a mirror image of his dead older brother. He must complete his assignment, but when he finds Fina in trouble, he can’t bring himself to abandon a member of his bloodline when he’s been abandoned himself.

Aedra swore she’d never fall for a member of the Order, but when Brion saves Fina from an attack and accompanies them to confront the Balancers, the feelings that bloom within her become impossible to ignore.

But Brion doesn’t see her as anything more than a Balancer. An enemy. A threat to the bloodlines.

Then Aedra is given the salacious opportunity to keep her bloodline and Fina’s a secret from Brion and her friends. She could take everything she’s ever wanted and see peace in the realm finally realized.

Can she forsake her ties to the magic to keep the people she loves safe? Can she forsake the truth to take a love she hasn’t earned?

If you loved Throne of GlassDefy the Night, or the Grishaverse, you’ll adore The Balancer, the thrilling conclusion to The Blessing Giver series.
