Blood Brothers: Escape to Creeporia by DEAN C. MOORE
4.0 out of 5 stars Family fun!, 21 April 2014
The series is called Blood Brothers, but this adventure is really a family affair: the brothers, their partners, children and even their old man in a starring role as the villain. Think Disney's Incredibles, but in a violent and bizarre fantasy world.

Renaissance 2.0: Carnival of Characters, Crusades,&hellip by Dean C. Moore

This is an enjoyable short adventure, confidently told with lots of good humour and plenty of twists and turns. As a set-up for a series of books, it works quite well, providing a brief insight the world and characters, both of which show lots of potential for development.

However, this is a 30,000 word novella that is just begging to be turned into a 40,000 word novel. Parts of the story are very underdeveloped: there is minimal description, and this fantasy world, with its modern trucks, hotels and military bases, could be anywhere. The illustrations provide more detail than the words, depicting a anime/Studio Ghibli-style world, so there is potential there for future… Read more
