Destroyer's Blood: The Adventures of Devcalion is the first entry in The Blood Series by Michael Lynes, a gripping fantasy with strong hints of Greek mythology.

Michael Lynes' novel will have a strong appeal for fans of Rick Riordan. The author creates characters that readers will love and enriches them with powerful links to the mythical world most readers have grown to adore. It begins with a stream of consciousness, a kind of soliloquy that exposes the complexities in Dev's personality, who happens to be the narrator. The first person narrative voice is irresistible, and it draws the reader into the worldview of the main character, making them feel the heat of the action that punctuates the narrative. 

Destroyer's Blood: The Adventures of Devcalion is filled with vivid descriptions and the story is infused with a rare sense of realism. Although the setting is an imaginary mythological world, it is filled with elements and details that reflect human reality. The conflict is phenomenal and defines the excitement the reader experiences as they follow the compelling characters. I enjoyed the humor, the beauty of the prose, and the focused, skillfully crafted scenes.
