Blood Ties is the first book in The Castings Trilogy by Pamela Freeman first published in January of 2008. This book brings together three unique individuals from three different domains - Saker, Bramble and Ash - taking their first steps towards the change in the Warlords rulings.
A thousand years ago Eleven Domains were invaded and the inhabitants forced to go on road as travellers, and welcome no where. Now these Eleven Domains are ruled by the Warlords. However, larger elements like fire, earth, water and air, that the Warlords cannot control play their part, perhaps may become the end of the Warlords era. Some involved are sprites, fairies, and some are just human. This series covers their stories and how they bring the change.( Collapse )
