Even supervillains have lines they dare not cross. If only the same could be said of heroes...

Rage, grief and guilt have fueled 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 armor 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.

Fid’s Crusade is marketed as a super-villainous sci-fi action thriller. It wasn’t one of the books that I read as part of the competition last year. However, I was offered a copy to read as part of this tour. I chose not to read it myself at this time as my schedule is packed to the brim! 😉 However, there are loads of glowing reviews out on the blogosphere and it’s a book that’s already received high praise. I’m looking forward to getting stuck in later in the year.

Keep reading to find out more about the book’s author, David H Reiss, the book’s narrator, George Napier. Plus I’ll explain the details about the Book Bloggers’ Novel of the Year Award.

About David H. Reiss

Author - David H Reiss

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-eight years. Until recently, he also shared his life with a disturbingly spoiled cat named Freya.

(Farewell, little huntress. You were loved. You are missed.)

Fear not…Two new kittens have since crept into the household and are working tirelessly to repair the hole left in the author’s heart.

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!

Here’s George’s bio.

About George Napier

Narrator - George Napier

My name is George Napier. I am a happy dad, narrator/voice-over artist, and part-time composer.

I have created, programmed, and directed interactive media content for private, non-profit, and government clients for over 20 years.
