#5starReview for “Blood of Invidia” A unique twist on the origins of vampires and werewolves. #SciFi

on January 4, 2017
Format: Kindle Edition

Blood of Invidia is the first book in the Maestru series. The reader unravels the story of whom, or even what, the Maestru is through carefully laid out chapters. The chapters are told from the different characters points of view, which is a writing style that’s a particular favourite of mine. I think it allows the reader to better understand the characters personality and motivation. This is particularly important in understanding a 10,000-year-old alien species.

The Authors brought a unique twist on the origins of vampires and werewolves, which was a refreshing change from gothic or religious origin stories.

I think it would have been easy to get drawn into outlandish otherworldly scenes when dealing with aliens, vampires and werewolves, but the Authors did a great job in anchoring the story to modern day earth. This was in part thanks to the three lead human characters that were very relatable and could easily have been my drinking buddies at University.

As good as the story and character development are, the real standouts in this book were the action scenes. At one point, I actually had to look away from the page such was the descriptive power of the writing.

I look forward to the next installment in the series.
