REVIEW: Tentyrian Legacy by Elise Walters

tentyrian legacy

bookshelves: dark-fantasy, fantasy, romance, permuted-press, vampires, historical-fiction, urban-fantasy

Having just finished this book, my emotions are on high. Who doesn't love a good romance novel? Who doesn't love a good vampire novel? Who doesn't love both?

You'll get that in Tentyrian Legacy.

It's simply a badass story.

Spanning the centuries, the Tentyrians (vampires), having seen all the world's wars and great moments are on a quest to stop their former Brothers at arms, now dubbed the Dark Coven.

When Arianna is thrown into this world after graduating from Harvard, her troubling gifts (a mind that hears many voices and later the ability to read people's minds) lead her to meet the alluring and Greek-like-god-figure Maximos.

He's a Tentyrian and is determined to get her to realize she is one too before the Dark Coven can get their hands on her.

It's a tale stapled throughout history, filled with blood, power, and romance, that is sure to excite fans of vampire lore, historical buffs, and romance novel enthusiasts alike.

As a fellow lover of vampires, and vampire lore, my thirst was greatly sated. Looking forward to more adventures from Maximos and Arianna and their Tentyrian Brotherhood. Definitely look forward to more from Mrs. Elise Walters. For a debut novel, this has immense bite.

This book is apart of Permuted Press's "Permuted Platinum" line is out now in Hardcover and is available as an E-Book.

Get this amazing book like right the fuck now or else.

What else?

I don't know but

Or else.

Keep your bite!

My Review of Ronald Andrés Moore's NOCTURN

bookshelves: fantasyvampiresmysteryhorrorhistorical-fictiondark-fantasy

Read from March 13, 2013 to April 16, 2014 — I own a copy, read count: 1

------------

Welcome to Hell.Yes, Breton, Virginia is Hell on Earth where all the criminals and murderers are placed to face their demise at the hands of Vampyres: the judges of morally right and wrong.I have to say after having just finished this novel, I found myself speeding through the rest of the pages to read the Epilogue - and I need to know what happens next.

This was a delightful take on the Vampire genre. And as a good fan of Vampires, I have to say, Ronald Andrés Moore's Vampyres are a fresh take on, what I feel, Vampires have always been at their core: Creations for a purpose beyond themselves. Whether it be to take blood for the sake of surviving, or, in this case, existing to dish out justice to those deserving of it (and sometimes not).

Which leads me to the colorful cast of characters. Here we have a vast (and I mean vast) collection of characters that fill this claustrophobia-inducing novel with their differences. Even the town itself is a character, a low hanging cloud of amnesia hovering just above its mostly derelict buildings.

I don't want to give too much away, so I won't, but our heroes vary greatly from an amnesiac Vampyre named Michael, to a cast of (IMO) fiery orphans who have known nothing but their existence in the stifling town, to a renowned Vampyre Hunter with numerous tricks up his sleeve, an assassin, and two English Gentlemen, not to mention the various women that take up the fight to the soul suckers.

At its core NOCTURN is a tale. Simply put. A riveting tale of that morally gray area we humans always seem to dwell within. It asks the question, "What would happen if we got rid of our criminals and placed them within a town away from the good?" And it answers that question with a roaring romp through darkness, blood, and gore. Those that created this town are the wrong ones, but we can hardly spare a feeling for them because we're so swept up in the varying characters's dilemmas as they come to terms (slowly) with the fact this town that always exists in one year, is not all it appears to be. (But we feel rightly justified when everyone wakes up and takes the fight to those in charge.)

The baddies in NOCTURN are a slew of Vampyres, many of which, I'll be honest, I can't name right now, but I do remember Isaac, Rurk, and of course, Ruthven, a brilliantly crafted Vampyre that has lived far too long - so long he's let his power corrupt him to the point he's oblivious to any notion of humility - it's not for him, you see.

There's so much I can say about this novel, from it's origin of the Vampyres (they're Nephilim), to the different fantastic creatures that all descend from mothers of ancient (dark) lore, to the awesome characters, and the world that existed in this one town.

Mr. Moore has created a riveting tale that I believe any fan of Vampires (they're vicious, just like I like 'em), historical fiction, claustrophobic horror, suave Van-Helsing-type Vampyre Hunters, and the little orphan inside us all will enjoy greatly.

I greatly await the next installment in this series. Mr. Moore has crafted the Vampire story I didn't know I wanted to read. But I do now, and that's all that matters.

Keep your bite, Mr. Moore. You're a blessing to the Vampire genre.

Flowing

In class today, instead of focusing on the film being shown, I got a spark of inspiration for the third book in my vampire series - The Two Swords.

The beginning at least. And as much as I can say here without giving anything away, I was focusing more on everyone else but one of the main-er characters, and just giving in and focusing on this character made everything fall in together - plot points I hadn't thought of 'till now surfaced. Quite why I enjoy writing things down - though I can't get the words down fast enough. :) 

The rest of my day was fairly nice. Though I'm a bit tired now, but ah well. I'm off to write.

You? 

You be sure to 

Keep your bite.

New Review for A Night of Frivolity!

Jayme K., the author of Youth, read my ebook and reviewed it on Goodreads. You can read it in its entirety here, or simply look below:

Jayme K. rated it 5 of 5 stars  Truthfully I don't liken myself a fan of Anne Rice or even much period piece literature, so I went into this short story with mixed feelings. That being said, having finished the story - I have to say, I was impressed. Despite not being a fan of the genre, S.C. Parris still managed to captivate me with the style and prose of which it was written and delivered a really good and interesting tale. I'm not going to delve much into the storyline since it is a new release and I'm not looking to spoil, but I have to give props to anyone who can get me fully invested in a story, regardless of how long or short, in spite of having a pre-conceived stance on the genre of which it happens to reside. ANoF is a worthwhile read, not just for horror fans, but for readers in general. I recommend.

You can get your copy of A Night of Frivolity here for $4.99.

Keep your bite.

anightfrivolitycover

When the daring Miss Clarke enters a gentlemen’s club in London on one cold day in January, the year 1714, she is met with a most cunning vampire who would only see her his before the night is through. With several onlookers, unwanted solicitations, and the watching dark eyes of the mysterious Alexander upon her, Miss Patricia Clarke is forced before long to decide whether her desired night of frowned-upon fun is worth the trouble…and the blood in A NIGHT OF FRIVOLITY.

Again it will be available on most ebook devices, including Kindle.

Sound like something you'd like to read?
