Reviewed by K.C. Finn for Readers' Favorite

Blood Fortune is a work of fiction in the science fiction, action, and thriller subgenres. It is best suited to mature adult readers owing to the use of explicit language throughout, as well as drugs, sex, and violence. Penned by author Brock Rivers, this high-octane ride takes us on a journey of greed and mystery as we explore ancient Aztec secrets. A team of modern-day adventurers must uncover secrets buried five hundred years in the past, but every discovery brings them onto the radar of dangerous groups determined to either stop them from discovering powerful new intel or to reap the spoils of these discoveries for themselves.

Author Brock Rivers has crafted a non-stop action fest that is dripping with the richness of ancient history, and the novel certainly takes us on a wild ride through various twists, clues, intrigues, and sudden moments of danger. One of the major highlights of the work for me was its atmosphere and the skillful clashes between past and present that give readers an eerie sense of ancient power pitted against modern weapons, AI, and governmental interference. The Aztecs could never have imagined the world which our heroes step into, and their unique backgrounds and multi-skilled approach to the issue make them a crack team of well-selected figures, but this doesn’t mean the journey is easy. There’s a wonderful duality in the dialogue too, which is well-utilized to deliver exposition but also allows us to read between the lines into emotion, drive, and ambition, for better or for worse. Overall, I would certainly recommend Blood Fortune for sci-fi action thriller fans everywhere as an un-put-down-able read.
