Blood Veins by Brian Young

A black wave of terror has passed over the thriving kingdom of Larista. Mysterious invaders have swept over the land, laying waste to everything in their path and leaving ghost towns in their wake. No one knows where they came from and no one knows their purpose.

Tasting nothing but defeat after defeat after, the light of hope is fading in the kingdom; but the guerilla forces resisting the invasion have received new information. The news has provided a small glimmer that could possibly spark into something more. Captain Maximus Rex leads a daring rescue mission deep in the Laristan forests to save the lone surviving member of the royal family.

Once freed, Prince Alexander Novelle, along with his friends and comrades, face a perilous journey deep behind enemy lines. Their destination is Castle Varanasi. The once proud Laristan capital, gateway to heaven and salvation, lines in ruins under Dolus occupation.

Mysterious assassins, underworld savages and renegade Dolus survivors stand between them and the answers they seek. What they find there will shatter their perceptions and lead to unknown perils none of them are ready to face.

Blood Veins by Brian Young Publisher: Rogue Phoenix Press Genre: Action/Adventure Sci-Fi/Fantasy Length: Full length (227 pgs) Rating: 3 stars Reviewed by Aloe A black wave of terror has passed over the thriving kingdom of Larista.

Mysterious assassins, underworld savages and renegade Dolus survivors stand between them and the answers they seek. What they find there will shatter their perceptions and lead to unknown perils none of them are ready to face.nd Alex is the prince who has been in captivity. They face extreme challenges, but they don’t give up. The author creates an adventure that is a bit reminiscent of “Dungeons and Dragons”. There are Death stalkers (mercenaries that kill for pay and are deadly at their job), there is an order of sisters who are more than they seem, and religion forbids technology. This is the earth in the future and it’s more like medieval times. The end of the world as we know it has given way to superstitions, less technology, and a struggle for power. Subways are beneath the earth and known only to a few. Everyone knows there is nothing on the other side of the mountain. The big disaster took care of that. But do they really know what they know? With intrigue rife within the small band protecting the prince, Mr. Young develops an intertwined plot line that is only partially revealed in this volume. When you end the story, you’ll be wishing you had the next book to read. The characters are real enough to grab your interest and make you care about them, and you want to see what will happen next. The author does a nice job of embellishing his tale with monsters, lies, tricks, and murder. If you like battles, action, hardship, camaraderie and determination, this story is for you.

Blood Veins Brian Young Rogue Phoenix Press http://www.roguephoenixpress.com/ $4.99 It's Raining Books Review Rating: 4 Flowers Prince Alexander, the last member of the royal family, is with his guerrilla force attempting to find out who the attacking forces are, and how to stop them. He and his group head back towards the castle with the intent to recapture it. So many things happens on the way back that it keeps you on the edge of your seat. Just about the time you think you know what is going on, it changes. There were times I felt as though I knew how a particular scene was going to end, and I was always wrong. As the story progressed, it was so tense and exciting with all the additional characters appearing or not showing themselves, I had little time for the tension to ease. Even when I was able to relax a little, I was really waiting for something else to happen, and it usually did. Several times while reading this story, I actually had to put it down so I could catch my breath. It was really suspenseful and I could never figure out how it would end. This author has a way of making his characters come to life so that you can really get to know them and begin to understand their reasons for doing what they are doing. He even made the bad guys real and helped you understand them also. Sometimes I wanted to stop reading because I had things to do, or because I wanted to prolong the story, but I also wanted to know what was really going on and how it would end. Then, more than halfway through the story, I found out something very significant about this strange world and just what it really was. It made the story even more exciting. This book has the feel of a movie with vivid descriptions, exciting plot and a cast of interesting characters that I truly cared about. I can't wait for the next book in the series! I give this book a 4 flower rating.
