|Plot Summary of The Blood of Heroes|
|"n the future, an unexplained plague eradicates nearly all the Earth's population and leaves the living to wonder why. One of those individuals, Nick Cambridge, is quickly and uncontrollably swept up in a journey that not only leads to its cause but also forces him to find the solution—eventually unlocking the mystery of his own existence. Through Nick's journey, he meets similar "outcasts" that, too, find themselves a part of the enigmatic experience that calls upon them all to be heroes and save what is left of life as they know it.
The fantasy-adventure novel The Blood of Heroes is a quality fit for anyone who enjoys getting lost in a book and identifying with its characters. The futuristic setting allows for new planets and races for a fantastical—but believable—plot. Despite the unnatural events that unfold, the reader is allowed to grow with the maturing, rational Nick as he toils with the thought of a predetermined destiny and questions the unexplained and evil he encounters. The Blood of Heroes not only encompasses fate, love, and friendship, but the tale also includes a riddle embedded in the storyline—which does not have a typical ending."
