The Blood Guard; Carter Roy

The Blood Guard (The Blood Guard, #1)The Blood Guard by Carter Roy
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

A new middle grade series, one that has seemingly normal people in it yet, underneath it, they're part of a great conspiracy to either protect or rid the world of the 36 Pure Ones (with a slight explanation of the Talmudic concept). Sounds great, right? And in parts, the execution is perfect, with people who don't die, amazing tricks with swords, a wild RV ride and more. That's on the good side. The bad side is that for me (not the target reader!) more about the mythology and history would have been nice. How were the Blood Guard formed? Who organizes them, etc.? And the same with the Bend Sinister. Maybe in book two?
