Genre: Urban Paranormal Fantasy
2052: Two-thirds of the human population have been killed by the Great War, the Clover Virus and the Death Plague. Only one man survived the Death Plague, an albino man named Griffin Storm. He’s the only albino in existence. No one knows what happened to the other albinos, but most believe the rumors that they were eliminated by the Guild Faction’s deadly experiments.
Griffin is hiding out in Underground Atlanta. He has special abilities. He can manipulate crystal and glass. He uses these abilities for good, raiding warehouses and old buildings for food and medical supplies to give to the abandoned children that live in the Underground. While on a raid he meets Tassta Vinetti. She’s a resident of the legendary Brotherhood Fortress. Griffin is taken to the Brotherhood and chaos ensues as Tassta, her twin brother Penn and her Uncle Lerin Sanctobous keep their new visitor and his untold powers secret. They can not disclose that the only albino in existence is now at their fortress or they could all be in great danger.
Fact is the Guild is hunting Griffin. He is the only survivor of their deadly experiments and his survival will have dynamic consequences. The Guild believes Griffin will transform into a G.O.D., a Genetically-enhanced Omni Dimensional being. If he transforms, he will have inter-dimensional doors within his body, doors that lead to heaven and hell. Griffin will become a Blood Master and he’ll be able to control the demons from the Dimension of Blood.
Will Griffin save the children of the Underground from their tragic life? Will he transform into a G.O.D. and become the Blood Master? Only time will tell…
Blood Master is about Griffin Storm, who is an albino, possibly the last. He has been living underground for years, and now he has been found by the Guardians of the Brotherhood, one of them being Tassta Vinetti. At first the people of the Brotherhood just think that Griffin is an albino with extraordinary powers, but later they learn he's a G.O.D. Which means that Griffin will have inter-dimensional doors inside of him, once he transforms...
Blood Master was absolutely awesome! I loved that it was an original story. I've never heard or read anything like it and that's what made it great for me. Griffin Storm is a solid character. I love his background, his personality and how reacts with other characters. The relationship between Griffin and Tassta had my inner fangirl cheering them on. That said, I was a little confused about G.O.D, personally it took me a chapter or two to comprehend what it was and how it was affecting Griffin. Other then that, it is well written. A four and half stars book.
