Masters of Blood and Bone by Craig Saunders
Ready to enter a horrifying, dark and sometimes humorous world filled with demons, gods, magic and one mortal man on a mission? Meet Holland, a man whose daughter has been taken and someone is going to pay, in ways far beyond their wildest imaginations. A dangerous book has been recovered by Holland, his daughter sees it, speaks the words inside and the world becomes ground zero for death and destruction as evil is unleashed through her words. So this crazed god, a changeling and a mage come into our world, sounds like a beginning of another lame joke, doesn’t? The joke may be on them as Holland is on a mission, armed and dangerous and their captive is far more than human, she is death’s daughter, Ankou...And we’re off on a journey filled with darkness and character-driven action as the world is brought to its knees, evil crushes hope and one unlikely hero is determined to be the last one standing in this battle of evil versus good. Really? These mad powers have never seen the wrath of a parent when their child is involved, never mind the entire world.
Masters of Blood and Bone fresh out of the fabulously creative mind of Craig Saunders, brews up a concoction of mythical beings, dark magic, the wrath of a mortal protecting what is his. Nothing over the top in the “death scream” horror department, but there is attitude enough to go around. Nothing seems to phase Holland, as if he is a man who has seen it all, done it all and is ready to do it, again. And his character? Thank you Mr. Saunders for making him relatable to every armchair bad boy out there! Craig Saunders has taken the dark unknown into a new direction full of surprises, which I’ll gladly follow!
I received this ARC edition from Darkfuse in exchange for my honest review.
