Another Double-Review Issue!January 30, 2017
Dominion of the Star by Angelica Clyman is a well-crafted adventure, which revolves around 17-year old Kayla. This story begins with the young women leaving her isolated home in an effort to understand her hidden past. Each character she encounters in this journey carries secrets – and few are what the outwardly appear to be. Against a one part post-apocalyptic and one part fantasy backdrop, Kayla struggles to understand herself, her own supernatural powers and the darkness of the world she was hidden away from for so long. A page-turner in which no character is without fault, this mythology-inspired journey captures reader attention.
A unique book told from the point of view of a vampire addressing his dying wife, whilst looking back on the drama they’ve left behind. Quirky, amusing, frightening and dark, Rebel Vampires, Volume One offers a brilliant story, with plenty of twists and turns, romance and gore. For anyone who already enjoys vampire or supernatural horror style stories or for anyone who is just looking for something a bit different, a bit edgy, something that will amuse you, frighten you and take you on one hell of a journey into love, death, humanity, and monsters, then I highly recommend this book.
Today I’m interviewing British author Rosemary Johns, author of Blood Dragons. Here she tells us how she researched the novel which spans several decades, how she climbed into the mind of a vampire, and what we can expect from the next books in the series.
