Review: Beautiful Salvation (Blood Prince #5) by Jennifer Blackstream

book cover for Blood Prince book 5 - Beautiful Salvation by Jennifer Blackstream

Hello Avid Readers. Today, I’m sharing my thoughts about Beautiful Salvation by Jennifer Blackstream. Book 5 in her bestselling paranormal romance series, Blood Prince.

Last year, I decided that mini-reviews were the way forward me and my blog. 😉 Consequently, I only write full detailed reviews for the books I receive from authors, publishers and PR organiser (ARCs).

I first read this book back in April 2019 but didn’t post my review on my blog. Therefore, I’m remedying that right now …

This Sleeping Beauty tale of a warrior princess under a curse and the dark god trying to wake her ends the Blood Prince series in a way that will send you running like a white rabbit for the spin-off series.

A princess lost in darkness. . .
Aiyana is a princess with a darkness inside her that won't remain silent for much longer. Her dreams are filled with blood and death, her waking hours plagued by phantom cries for blood that seem to come from the earth itself. Fearing that she's becoming a danger to her people, Aiyana determines to risk a bargain with a fairy to get rid of the frightening power inside her. If she can find the fairy. If she can get past the god she meets in the woods. If there wasn't something about him that felt so...familiar.
A god fading away. . .
Saamal is a god reduced, a deity who's gone from being all-powerful to being forced to watch his land die. His only chance to save his kingdom is a marriage bond with the princess prophesied to return him to glory. The only obstacle? The princess has been cursed, trapped in a death-like state. When he is given a way to communicate with her, he has hope for the first time in decades. Unfortunately, the princess is horrified by his very nature and the future she envisions if she believes what he claims. The once all-powerful god must now do something he's never had to do before...ask.
Will their first kiss be their last? Or will they break the curse in time to save their land-and each other?

What Did I Think About Beautiful Salvation?

 Sleeping Beauty Gets The Blackstream Treatment in This Gripping Finale

I’m already a fan of Ms Blackstream’s writing style. I love the way she mixes mythology and beloved fairytales and gives them a new perspective.

Once again, I downloaded the narration of this book too. Matt Addis’ performance was amazing! The pace he read transported me into the scenes and his tonal variations brought each character to life. He is a talented voice actor and I would happily buy books narrated by him in the future.

I loved the moral question of perspective that this story highlighted. What is good and right to one may seem evil and intrinsically wrong to another. Both our main characters had to reassess their views in this tale.

The background story arc that played out in the prologues and epilogues throughout this series has been completed in this book. However, there are a couple of bonus stories that are part of the Blood Prince series which I can’t wait to read too – The Pirate’s Witch (#6) and Dead To Begin With (#7).

About Jennifer Blackstream

Author - Jennifer Blackstream

Jennifer Blackstream is a USA Today bestselling author of urban fantasy and paranormal romance. She is amazed and grateful to have made a writing career out of a Master’s degree in Psychology, hours of couch-detecting watching Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries, and endless research into mythology and fairy tales. She firmly believes that whether it’s a village witch deciding she wants to be a private investigator, or a single mother having a go at being a full-time writer, it’s never too late for a new adventure.

A fervent devotee of cooperative board games, Jennifer sets aside at least two nights a week for team-based adventures such as Mice & Mystics, Sentinels of the Multiverse, or Harry Potter: Battle at Hogwarts. She uses games with dice-based mechanics to lure in her ridiculously lucky-rolling son and daughter in the hope that they too will develop a passion for cooperative escapism.
