The other would be a novel set in the same world with Lucas as the protagonist and Andy as a supporting character. Lucas has an interesting story to tell that I would like to explore.(less)

Blood of Empire by Brian McClellan

Blood of Empire wraps up what was really an enjoyable, entertaining, and compelling trilogy. Even though the novel was quite long, there wasn’t much fluff to it. There was a strong buildup, both in this third entry and the series as a whole. For the first time, the trilogy goes to Dynize, which I thought was an interesting change, since the reader was able to see not just the Dynize invaders but a Read more of this blog post »

Quotes by Carl Alves  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“I have seen many atrocities, but they are outweighed by the kind deeds that may seem small, but when added together, create a strong human spirit. Perhaps you would benefit from living a simple life away from war and politics.”
Carl Alves, Two For Eternity

“Horror itself is a bit of a bullied genre, the antagonist being literary snobbery and public misconception. And I think good horror tackles our darkest fears, whatever they may be. It takes us into the minds of the victims, explores the threats, disseminates fear, studies how it changes us. It pulls back the curtain on the ugly underbelly of society, tears away the masks the monsters wear out in the world, shows us the potential truth of the human condition. Horror is truth, unflinching and honest. Not everybody wants to see that, but good horror ensures that it's there to be seen.”
Kealan Patrick Burke
