Blood for Honor

Blood for Honor is an urban dystopian novel with supernatural and sci-fi undertones, set in the post-war ruins of the Piney Woods of East Texas.

“I applaud your sense of honor, General. Although, I must say, blood for honor is a slippery slope indeed.”

Aella West, Blood 4 Honor

Trauma unlocks doors, and the demons of our past lurk behind them.

You must deal with your demons before they take you out, but beware! Nothing is ever as it seems. Deception is the adversary’s middle name.


Iylara Vance is the daughter of one of two war-clan Chiefs that rule the region, an indirect heir in her own right. When thrust into leadership unexpectedly, she is unprepared, confused, and scared, leading her to make what she feels is the best decision to save her people in the face of an all-out war. But things are not always as they seem, and the ramifications of trauma can be…deceptive.

In the blink of an eye, everything changes, leaving Iylara blindsided at the turn of events. Decisions may determine which path life takes, but is there such a thing as the point-of-no-return?

Love, longing, and fear drive the heart of the story, and deception lurks around every corner. Will Iylara be able to rise above the situation her life choices have brought on, or be overcome by her demons?


I am in the process of self-publishing. If you are interested in an ARC copy later in the year in return for an honest review, please email me at emmaleejoy@protonmail.com.

Many blessings,
