Thank you to Jill at Books N All Blog Tours for having me on this tour again!! I can’t wait for more of this series to be released!!
In the godless badlands of Transylvania the fragile truce between mankind and monsters is about to explode…
When bounty hunters target one of 19th century Europe’s most feared vampire clans, the last place any lawman wants to be is caught in the middle…
But for Anton Yoska, Lord Marshal of the Imperial lands south of the Carpathian Mountains, fate has trapped him in a supernatural stand-off that can end only in a bloodbath.
A gang of mercenaries led by Anton’s former army comrade Milosh Drubrick have captured vampire aristocrat Stefan Modjeski, wanted for a string of frenzied murders, and have come to Anton to claim the reward. And as Stefan’s predatory undead kin lay siege to the jailhouse, Anton is faced with an agonising choice – hand over his prisoner and abandon the bounty hunters to their unspeakable fate, or stand and fight.
The jailhouse defenders are outnumbered and out of options. It’s a battle that can’t be won, certain slaughter for them all, and Anton can’t trust his scheming allies. But Lord Marshal Yoska isn’t about to surrender.
For he’s an experienced vampire hunter, a dangerous man when cornered, and a single minded warrior who knows there are worse things to fear than death
A great beginning! This story left me with a lot of questions, but, according to the author, that is because this is just the tip of the ice berg, and I can’t wait for more!!
The story was told with each chapter alternating between groups, which was a great way to do it because there were so many characters to get to know. It kept things very organized when it could have been very confusing. I loved the backstories that we got to delve into in this novel. Quintz and his circus background, and Anton with his dark secrets. I can’t wait until more of the character backgrounds are revealed.
I had this book described to me as a horror when I first received it, but I would definitely describe it more as a gothic fantasy. Although, there is still a lot left to explore, it was a very enjoyable read! I would definitely recommend it to fans of fantasy who want something a little darker for a change.
Pick up your copy!!
