One of the key things I enjoyed about The Dark World is that it starts off as what appears to be a pretty normal Vampire book, you get what you expect. Which for me, is perfect, I love vampires. And these are the dark and blood-hungry (kind of) vampires that I love, that feel very unhuman and aware of their power. That, whilst interwined with the human world at times, know they don’t belong and don’t try incredibly hard to be Exactly Like Us.

But as the book unravels it becomes clear this isn’t just a vampire book, its very much more than that with every and all supernatural beings you’d love to read more about.

With a cold sweeping breeze, the calm night air was disturbed by the appearance of three cloaked figures.

a vision of horror firmly rooted in the great gothic tradition of vampire literature, but completely original...The DARK WORLD, populated by mixed monstrosities, magically gifted humans and the descendants of Count Dracula himself, will be instantly recognizable to lovers of vampire tales but accessible to those new to the genre. Some great story-telling here...S.C. Parris is a talent to watch.

A World kept from the eyes of humans where all manner of Dark Creature live, war, and thrive.

But certain Creatures are about to find that there is more to the dark than blood and bite…. The Dark World holds secrets…and the greatest of all are about to be revealed.


When Xavier Delacroix witnesses the death of beloved Vampire Order member, Eleanor Black, his world is turned upside down. A visit to the King of All Dark Creatures, Dracula, reveals little but more secrets, sending Xavier to keep a few for himself. After all, he is no longer sure who he can trust….

With the surprising appearance of strange new Creatures, the Dark World is plagued with a strange energy, energy that is affecting all Dark Creatures for the worst…

Equipped with nothing but questions, Xavier and those close to him are forced to face this new threat, even if it may cost them their lives.

The sky swirled with cold wind, the clouds dispersing as it blew, sending the trees to pitch and roll against their brothers, scattering bare branches along the wet ground.
