Publisher's Summary

Destroyer's Blood - audiobook one of the Blood series: a fantasy novel by award-winning author Michael Lynes.

Dev shook his head, spitting out dust and rock chips. The last rays of the setting sun stained the ground crimson. "Betrayer," he murmured, ears still ringing from the terrific explosion, "we have a problem."

The cryptic message from Olympus changes everything.... One moment, Devcalion and Betrayer are free, climbing up Half Dome without a care in the world, the next, they are dragged into battle with the Destroyer, Zeus' ancient foe.

The dark power is merciless, and time is running out. It's up to Dev and Tray to try to stop him, or the world of men and gods is doomed.

A Humble Demi-god

This story is about "Dev" Devcalion the demi-god son of Prometheus and whose uncle is Zeus. Prometheus gifted Dev with a magic sword that is called "Tray" The Betrayer that is sentient and his closest friend. Dev wants to find his own way in the world but is pulled back to reluctantly back to Olympus and that is where the troubles begin. One thing I enjoyed about Dev was that he puts his pride and personal feeling aside to do what is right and best. He follows a code that is unshakable and guides him. I really enjoyed it and recommend you give it a listen. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Great Fantasy Book

It's rare to find a fantasy book that's written in an easy-to-understand style which is why you won't see a lot of them in my library. But when the opportunity came along to listen to this one and review it in exchange for a copy, I took a chance and I'm glad I did. Narrator David Bosco does a great job with the voices, offering just the right pacing and cadence to keep the suspense where it's needed, needling me not to put it down. Coming of age against the backdrop of a fantasy is a nice change of pace for my taste and I'm glad there are more in the series.

Greek Mythology at its best!

I listened to a short story with these characters from this author and narrator earlier this year. This is a great continuation. The take on Greek mythology is very interesting. The story is non stop action and very entertaining. I highly recommend this author and this narrator. David Bosco is an excellent narrator and brings life to every character. I was voluntarily provided this review copy at no charge by the author, publisher and or narrator.

Very Good

I love Greek mythology and this one had it all. The main character was humble and this book mixed in some modern urban fantasy. His sword could talk, feel and act. I really enjoyed this as it reminded me of many Mangas I have read over the years. The story did have some slow parts but it didn't take too much away from the main story for me. I didn't mind it. The narrator grew on me more in this book. I got used to the echo voices and it was much easier to tell people apart. Definitely worth a listen. I am looking forward to the next in the series.

Great.

Loved the novella, so I could not wait to listen to this one. One of the things I loved about this book is how the author puts his own take on a mythology that we have read about. I gave it four stars because I did find it slow at times but other than this it is a good read/listen.

The Adventures of Very Human Gods

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. In a world of mythological gods and demi-gods, their very human aspects keep surfacing in the well-defined characters. In this fantastical world where swords can talk and love, we become reacquainted with familiar mythological figures and learn to trust no one. Not Zeus who can be manipulated to extreme evil by demonic forces, not Geo whose revengeful actions brings the destruction of earth and human race to the very brink of no-return, certainly not Typhon with his deep-rooted ambition of usurping Zeus' throne. From scene to scene, we are transported from the ancient Greek world of mythology to a very modern New York City with its penthouses and the best money can buy, to the fantastical fairytale world of furry talking bunnies a la "Alice in Wonderland" flair reminiscent of the "Once Upon A Time" series in which modern characters are thrown in fairytale illusions. It is a complex story with many characters that are splendidly interpreted by the narrator David Bosco. I'm always amazed by his control of the various characters and his ability to give each one his or her own personality. His creativity is truly amazing. I also enjoyed the special effects used throughout the narration. They give you an almost "visual" experience. This first book in the Blood series is truly remarkable and a must read. You will not be disappointed

Loved it!

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review. This book is a greek mythology-based modern urban fantasy/adventure story. A good sense of humor and great narration make for a really entertaining listen. If you like urban fantasy I would highly recommend this audio book. I hope there is more from this author/narrator duo.

Excellent!!

I love stories of mythology, the odyssey, clash of the titans etc. This story fall right in line, just set in our timeline. The adventure filled with misadventure, is done wonderfully in tune with the old stories. I really enjoyed the narration of it. Reminded me of an old tv show or radio drama. I look forward to listening to the next book to see what new misadventures awaits our heroes! I have received a free copy of this book in exchange for an unbiased review.
