All of this forms the backdrop to Blood and Butterfly, the debut novel from the creative pen of Fredrick A. Fullick, a British-born writer who now makes his home in Thunder Bay, Ontario. Blood and Butterfly is an auspicious first novel, a work of fantasy/fiction that fans of the genre will find fascinating. The characters are well and tightly drawn, the storyline is clear and compelling, and the key fantasy/fiction components are all set nicely in place: good vs. evil, the dark necessity of revenge, and the heroic charge of the peasant villagers that finally lays waste to the evil Vixons and their cowardly leader.
In Blood and Butterfly, those villagers, finally provoked into courageous action after years of subservience to the barbarian Vixons and Baron Danulf, are the true heroes of the piece. Athel, in the heavenly-inspired guise of Friar Ulric, is the true, inspired leader, the man who puts his own life at risk as he sets the wheels into motion to rid the land of the oppressive Vixon force. In the end, the forces of good prevail, peace returns to the land, and the villagers are finally set free to enjoy the life they once knew and treasured.
Author Fredrick A. Fullrick is currently at work on his second novel.
