Heroes of Afflatus: Book 2 The Blue Butterfly

Heroes of Afflatus: Book 2 The Blue Butterfly by [C.R. Endacott]

Avery, the truth wizard, and her friends catch wind of Depravity’s next target: the Faerie World. The insidious being seeks to kill the blue butterfly, the last seal preventing it from returning to full strength. But, while Avery’s and her friends’ mission is clear – stop Depravity again and protect the blue butterfly – it’s far from straightforward.

First, they have to find the entrance to the Faerie World. Unfortunately, things take a terrible turn when Avery is kidnapped by Depravity’s stone minions. In a race against time, Jared, Garon, and Carson, with the help of unlikely allies, must rescue Avery before she’s drained of all her magic and stop Depravity.

The Blue Butterfly is the second entry in C.R Endacott’s Heroes of Afflatus Series. The series centers on a group of regular teenagers who find their way into a magical realm where they become heroes by taking on daring missions.

With fantasy at its core, Endacott’s book is imaginative. But thankfully, the author understands that fantasy doesn’t have to be complicated to be thrilling. Instead, the author delights with simple and well-defined otherworldly elements and characters while relying on the strength of the plot to keep readers engaged.

The prose is also compelling. With a mix of characters brimming with personality, high stakes, and resonating themes, Endacott gets you to believe in his story.

I also enjoyed symbolisms like the depiction of Depravity as the villain and how Endacott argues that Depravity is found in the choices we make. The world’s evil is not conjured by some intangible entity but by man’s choices. Likewise, the existing good stems from our decisions.

Treat me to a delightfully pulsating ending and you’ve won yourself a fan. Safe to say, Endacott’s won a new cheerleader. But even with pom poms in hand, I’ll confess that I had a few head-scratching moments where characters inexplicably acted ignorant about story elements they previously interacted with. I’m still a fan of the fresh and fluid writing though.

The Blue Butterfly is an exciting coming of age adventure story that excellently takes this fantasy story to the next level. I hope the next part in the Heroes of Afflatus series is just as good or even better.

1A Penn Road is a short, sharp gripping thriller. It is one of the books in a series written by the same author. The stories require only an hour of your time to read, but in that hour you will be drawn in by the suspense and kept guessing until the last few pages.
