Today, in association with Loving The Book, I'm featuring Ren Garcia's latest League of Elder novel, Mentralysis, House of Bloodstein Book 2. I'll tell you right off that I edited this book, but I also wanted to add that I am a huge fan of Ren's work and Mentralysis is no exception. The action comes thick and fast, and the twists and turns of the plot are fascinating. If you already know Ren's books, you'll know how good this one is before reading it. If you haven't been introduced yet - go check them out! Lovers of sci-fi, fantasy and steam punk will not be disappointed!

They thought the episode with their cousin to the east, Lady Bloodstein, was over. They thought it was something to laugh about at the grand table in fond nostalgia.
And Castle Blanchefort has fallen!
Lord Kabyl has lost everything: his wife, his kin, his family fortune, and his home. Castle Blanchefort, once a safe haven, is overrun with enemies seeking his blood.
In what follows, he must join forces with ancient enemies and with people who do not exist. He must treat with sinister, possibly untrustworthy gods and barter away his soul for urgently needed arcane help or face certain death at the hands of forgotten tyrants and their machinations from a bygone age.
And, how can a strange science known as Mentralysis, practiced in secret in the hidden places of the League, hold the key to ultimate victory?
What should have been obvious to Lord Kabyl from the start at last becomes crystal clear: Foolish is he who dares possess the Ultimate Object, for misery shall be his only reward.
The mouth became quizzical and then gave a wry, wicked smile. "My help? I see ... And what can I do to help you?"
"I need a favor."
"A favor?" it cried with a sour note. "Not in four hundred years have I granted a favor to an Invernan, or anyone else for that matter. I do believe I admire your idiocy and raw nerve. Go on, ask your favor."
"I need Shadow tech."
"Shadow tech? Is that all?"
--Wilhella Cormand-Grande to Lord Kabyl of Blanchefort.
