The Blended Ones by Angela J Ford

Phyllis and her 17 year old twin sister, Ilieus are blended ones. But Ilieus suffers from vision of darkness she is unable to discern. Forsaken by their parents the two cross the country in search of the Order of the Wise for help.

Cuthan the Charmer is mischievous enough to change anyone's  mind with a smile and a wink. Born into a family of treasure hunters, he's  searching for the key to unlocking his dormant powers.

Pharengon the Horse Lord was born to be King. Young and inexperienced he seeks a weapon to turn the tide of the war in his favor. But when his very own army betrays him, he will have to turn to the Lost Ones for assistance.

Caught in the fate of the Eastern World the youths destinies become twisted together in a frightful quest that will change the course of time. In the midst of their whirlwind adventure, they discover love, loss and uncover the truth about who and what is behind the chaotic, spiraling events in the Eastern World.

Where to begin? I think by saying Angela J ford has entered my favorite authors list. Her previous book, The Five Warriors, took me to a new world I want to visit, The Blended Ones has reminded  me why.  
The plot centers on the slow and consistent decay of the Eastern World; the people groups are turning to hunt those who are Blended, which means those who belong to two people groups. It is believed the Blended Ones are the cause for the destruction of the land. 
Ilieus and Phyllis are blended, they found themselves alone and with many questions to be responded, therefore they embark in an adventure. A journey filled with peril that will raise even more questions, and uncover difficult truths. 
They are well accompanied by Cuthan and Artenvox, two mischievous and fun charmers. They are a delight to read, intelligent, resourceful, and unpredictable. I was constantly wondering what side were they on.
We also have brave Lord, Pharengon. Unselfish and willing to fight for his people, he carries a great responsibility, his wisdom and calmed demeanor were what I love the most about him.  
Overall, The Blended ones is an action packed adventure. With turns and revelations that are hard to predict, fun scenes, and capable of giving a healthy book hangover.

I am so obsessed with this song! It's helped me write quite a few scenes. LYRICS: I can feel you, I can hear you, howling in my bones  ...
