Fable: Blood of Heroes

Fable: Blood of HeroesFable: Blood of Heroes by Jim C. Hines
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Once again nefarious villains have come to threaten Albion and a new crop of heroes have risen to thwart them. After an inn is lit on fire in Brightlodge, four heroes seek to bring those responsible to justice. Another group of four heroes seek to find the answers to mysterious deaths in Grayrock. While on their quests the eight heroes find a more potentially devastating threat that only they can hope to stop.

Fable: Blood of Heroes is a story with average characters, dialogue, and storyline. The characters largely feel like flat variations of better known counterparts in other media. The dialogue and storyline had a young adult feel to it and perhaps that is exactly what the author was going for, but it left me wanting more.

Blood of Heroes is the companion novel to the video game Fable Legends. Unfortunately for me I read this book before Fable Legends was even released and I can't help but feel I was missing some of the substance I would have gained by playing the game as well.

The overall story had some elements that with some tweaking I could envision myself enjoying, but unfortunately I didn't really care for any part of it.

2 out of 5 stars

I received this ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
