Rhapsody: Child of Blood(Symphony of Ages Series #1) by Elizabeth Haydon

Picture yourself back in time, the year 1139. When women mostly married and raised their children. The town is having the annual Foreharvest dance. Emily is attempting to avoid the marriage lottery. Told this year she must enter she is upset that she must give up all the dreams she has.

Gwydion has been transported back in time and to the other side of the world. He is invited to the Foreharvest dance by the farmer who has agreed to hire him. Still trying to get his barrings he leaves the Foreharvest dance to contemplate his plight. While sitting outside he sees Emily and strikes up a conversation. An instant connection is made and after a night of shared passion and a marriage proposal the two decide to run away together. Only problem is that Gwydion isn't from this time and the next day is ripped back through time. Hence, the real story begins 7 years later. When love, magic, and dragons are involved you know it's gonna be good.

I gave this one a 4 out of 5 stars.

The thing that may throw people off about this book:

- The beginning of the books starts with 2 characters that, on the surface, seem to have nothing to do with the rest of the book that is until later.
- You learn bits and pieces about the magic world as the story progresses. It's not just laid out for you in the beginning. This may irritate some individuals.
