Blood must be shed.
Because on Volen, that blood is cheap. Kait will use the human's propensity to kill each other to claim her vengeance.
All the while, a rebel named Pietah fights his own demons, trying to survive in a theocracy that sanctions rape, bloodletting, and misogyny.
An alliance is necessary, more so for Kait. Just for now. But Kait doesn't realize she's not ready for the kind of alliance she develops with Pietah.
She doesn't realize the consequences of her vengeance. For herself. For Pietah. For Volen, or for her own world, Trellora.

This is an actual church that sits in the middle of Sydney. You wouldn't know it from the picture, but it still houses church services and is open at select times for those who wish to pray, worship, or visit and admire the gothic interior.
I visited this church many years ago while writing the novella Butterfly Girl, which eventually turned into Trelloran Seduction. When I saw the church building and the grounds around it, I sensed that a church just like this one would play a key role in the story.
It couldn't have been easy to write but it was a great book to read and I liked it a lot. I am looking forward to reading more from this author. - Scarolet
Trelloran Seduction is a unique and enthralling dystopian offering from debut author Georgia Carter Mathers. I was rather impressed with this story, it's not your usual vampire tale, not by a long shot. Georgia has created a world where darkness reigns and while it's total fantasy, parallels can be clearly drawn between our society and the one that exists in Trelloran Seduction. This is a gritty read, at times confronting, but never drawn out. There are scenes which will reach deep into you and give your heart a good squeeze. The ending is hard fought for and lacks that element of perfect happiness, which is in my opinion, a very good choice that Georgia has made. Despite the cover, which may appeal to teen readers, I think it's important to disclose that this is not a YA novel. Themes and situations are for mature readers. I look forward to the continuation of this series and hope we don't have to wait too long for another installment.
I experienced sexual assault when I was a child, and perhaps this story is a public acknowledgment of that in some way, although the book discusses many other types of sexual abuse as well, and it predominantly follows the journey toward healing.
According to Centres Against Sexual Assault, a university study found 20.6% of women and 10.5% of men reported non-penetrative childhood sexual abuse by the age of 16 and that 7.9% of women and 7.5% of men reported penetrative childhood sexual abuse by the age 16 years.
