BOOK REVIEW: "Four Pieces For Power (Vendicatori Series Book 1)" by Marc Estes
Andrew Correo is an average guy, recently going through a grieving peroid for a lost love. The last thing he expects is for strange men to show up, trek him his dead grandfather actually was alive until recently and he is next in line to inherit the Vendicatori, the family legacy...but he isn't the only contender. In order to beat his opponent, he has to travel the world, looking for four pieces of a puzzle to lead him to his birthright.
Robert is the other, a devious man who, after getting word of the vast fortune he is to compete for, gets a taste for death and trickery.
Meanwhile, Andrew's sister is getting married at a Halloween masquerade, and he may not make it home to be there.
Acclaimed playwright Marc Estes' debut novel is an adrenaline-filled adventure, wrought with danger and deception at every turn.
It is a slightly moral tale, about how money and power can corrupt even the most good-hearted man. The evil that lies dormant in every human heart comes to the surface in Four Pieces For Power, where a fortune that could change your life is at stake.
The characters seem very basic, except for one thing in each. In Andrew, it's his grief over a murdered lover. It's relatable and genuine, and easily makes him the favorite of the two main characters. With Robert, it's actually his corruption. The darkness is alluring and frightening at the same time.
This is a well-plotted tale and I will be reading the rest of the series!
