Life in tatters and far from home, Rodden Lothskorn struggles to cope with the harming menace and his own harming nature. When an offer of marriage reaches his friend, Prince Amis, Rodden discovers that the bride’s inhospitable homeland might contain one part of the harming poison he would dearly like to get his hands on. But if summoned northwards, will Princess Lilith bring something – or someone – he dreads most with her? Locked in a years-long struggle with the Lharmellins, Rodden senses the battle is only now about to begin. (Goodreads Synopsis)

Blood Phantom is a fun, short prequel to Rhiannon Hart's Lharmell series. It transfers POV to Rodden and we get an intriguing glimpse of his back story, ending with the moment he discovers Zeraphina (when book one in the series starts).

At 15 pages it is a very short read and that was my only gripe - I wished it had been longer! Still, it was a nice little peek into Rodden's character and motivations and it certainly whets the appetite for the third book which will be released in 2014.
