At its heart, Civil Blood is a love story.
Yes, it takes place in the grimy, crime-filled slums of Lowside. Sure, there’s murder and mayhem, politics and betrayal, gang-wide brawls and good old fashioned action and assassination.
But it’s really about two young people who once thought love was strong enough to conquer all.
And now, years later, they know better.
Only, of course, like all people in love, they really don’t.
Alys is a street-wise and street-hardened daughter of the underworld. And Dax, the shining example of nobility and honor and justice.
They’re back in each other’s lives once again. This time, to uncover a murderer who’s killing in Alys’s name.
They should just walk away from each other. They should just return to their own worlds.
But they don’t. They can’t.
But isn’t that what makes love so grand?
