Multi-volume, multi-genre author G. David Walker introduces us to urban, paranormal fantasy, “Three Blood Prince”:
J.D. Williams’ parents have kept a secret from him and his big sister, Megan, for their entire lives. Now, that secret might just get J.D. killed.
The arrival of a strange girl at his school sets J.D. on a journey which will completely change the course of his life as well as that of his sister. Together, they discover that none of the closest people in their lives, from their parents to J.D.’s best friend, are who they thought they were. Which means neither are J.D. and Megan.
J.D. becomes the target of a dark Fae who believes his blood contains the key to ultimate power. She will stop at nothing to achieve her goals, sending bloodthirsty creatures of nightmares and legends in pursuit of him and his family, from their home in the Ozarks to the shores of northern Scotland.
With teeth and claws potentially lurking in every shadow, the Williams need any allies they can find to keep J.D. safe from the malevolent creatures hunting him and stop their dark mistress forever.
I have read two other books by Mr. Walker and he is getting better in his craft! I see improvement in his character development and dialogue. His story is not to be missed!
The relationship between JD and his older sister seems very normal and there is a lot of interaction between them. The parents seem typical until they are forced to reveal the truth about their identity to their children. It gets rather complicated after that. No spoilers from me!
Mr. Walker has done a marvelous job of respecting the familiar tropes of most fantasy stories and spun them into something quite good.
I am fervently hoping this is merely the first volume of several. This is such a good start! If you like fast-paced action, urban fantasy and a decent dose of the paranormal you have found a home.
