BBNYA Spotlight: Fid’s Crusade by David H. Reiss

I received this book to read as part of the 2020 BBNYA (Book Blogger Novel of the Year Award) and the BBNYA tours organised by @The_WriteReads Tour Team. All opinions are my own unbiased honest thoughts. More information about all can be found at the bottom of this post.

Fid’s Crusade is the second place, runner up of the 2020 Book Blogger Novel of the Year Award! The first instalment of the Chronicles of Fid series.

Unfortunately due to some unexpected work incidents, I have not read enough of this novel yet to give what I consider a clear first impression or honest review; so instead I wanted to take the opportunity to tell you a little more about the story, with the promise that I will write a full review at a later date when I have had the opportunity to finish the novel.

Rage, grief and guilt have fuelled Doctor Fid’s endless quest to punish the unworthy and he has left a long trail of blood and misery in his wake. For more than two decades, the sight of the villain’s powered armour has struck fear into the hearts of hero and civilian alike! But when a personal tragedy motivates Doctor Fid to investigate a crime, he uncovers a plot so heinous that even he is taken aback.

Haunted by painful memories and profound guilt, the veteran supervillain must race against time if he is to have any hope of confronting the approaching threat. Every battle takes its toll… but the stakes are too high for retreat to be an option.

In the end, it may take a villain to save the world from those entrusted with the world’s protection.

About the Author

While growing up, David was that weird kid with his nose in a book and his head in the clouds. He was the table-top role-playing game geek, the comic-book nerd, the story-teller and dreamer.

Fortunately, he hasn’t changed much.

David is a software engineer by trade and a long-time sci-fi and fantasy devotee by passion, and he lives in Silicon Valley with his partner of twenty-either years.

David’s first trilogy the Chronicles of Fid, has just recently been completed; these were his first novel-length projects, but they certainly won’t be his last – he’s having far too much fun!.
