Synopsis: (Goodreads) London, 1794. Lucius Cane, a peculiar sort of vampire, comes upon an opponent the likes of which he has never seen before – a brute with remarkable abilities. But not all is as it seems as their encounter unfolds in a manner that neither of them expected.
Review: This book was given to me by the author for an honest and fair review. In no way has this changed how I feel about the book or will change the kind of review I will provide.
This was a very short read. I read it within a day or so. It’s only book one in a series but it’s also more like a short story. So first and foremost if you like really quick reads, this one is totally for you.
It’s about Lucius a vampire who people want dead and someone is hired to kill him but this someone is not what your typical “contract killer”. He also has abilities of his own, that kind of mirror a werewolf. So your classic tale of teeth vs. teeth.
You meet Lucius and the battle happens. It’s a really great battle I must say. It’s to the point and it’s one bad ass against the other.
It is written very well, and descriptive which is nice for such a short story. I would have given it a perfect score if it was more to the battle but not because it’s so short. If I get the chance I would continue this story for sure and follow more of what this author might produce.
