Ancient Blood: A Novel of the Hegemony by Brian McKinley   Leave a comment

I have to say that this one was a particularly unique book. It took me almost three weeks to read it, as I was getting sidetracked constantly by a lot of things. Now I can post this review. This book has a ton of elements that I can name: such as servitude and domestic abuse (if you can call what was going on between Sebastian and Caroline that. The format it took as a series of journal entries was unique.

We’re introduced to Avery and Caroline, who are on the run from the Order, a society of vampires who function like the Illuminati or Freemasons or something along those lines- as they’re the ones who rule the world and control everything behind the scenes from the War on Terrorism to poverty in third world countries. We later learn it’s because Caroline has turned Avery and she herself has escaped from her Creator Sebastian, a violent Hegemon (leader) who gives in to his feral urges.

This book also has an interesting cast of characters other than the main three:

Valmont, the pedophile with quite the sword skill

Jade Tiger, the nymphomaniac

Geoffrey, the businessman who actually follows the human world and profits from its chaos

Draco, the super-strong pyrokinetic capable of kicking Avery’s teeth in

Iago, the benevolent leader

Julia: the scheming bitch who teams up with Sebastian to remove Iago from power

There’s so much I want to say about this book that I don’t think I should, because I might give it all away. But just know I give it five out of five.

Talking About Release   Leave a comment

Release is essentially going to be one of the hardest writing projects I’ve ever done, because like what my brother’s doing, this one is going to feature bits and pieces of my life from different points in time. The thought of reliving most of these events trigger either frustration or pure rage, but I know it needs to be done so I can be done with it all. I think for this one, I might just work on my own book cover while Latrele gets familiar with his new program. It’s why I’m pushing back The Welter War. I just started this and I realized that Justin and Darien are going to be very, very difficult to write about. Well, think I should get started.

Nightlife: Las Vegas by Travis Luedke   2 comments

I love reading about things I enjoy from the point of view of others. This author’s point of view of suckheads is quite unique: in the world of Nightlife, vampires are extremely sexual creatures whose bites are of an orgasmic and addictive quality to humans. Las Vegas continues where New York left off, with the pairing of Aaron and Michelle now living in Sin City after slaying the two corrupt cops who had been bent on getting revenge on Michelle for physically humiliating them. Michelle is Aaron’s mistress and forbids blood slaves, humans addicted to the vampire’s bite if said bite is prolonged for too long. Wanna guess what happens here? I’m sure you already know.

Meet Anastasia, a girl having a good time a concert until she finds Aaron grinding and groping her. Ana has gypsy blood in her and abilities similar to the primary character of Blood Slave, Hope. She’s a mind reader of sorts. Anyway, Aaron finds herself attracted to her and delivers his bite, but makes the mistake of feeding for too long. It’s pretty interesting how Michelle disapproves of his violation of her rule, but eventually bends on the rule she imposed for him, deciding to partake in some fun with her man and his pet.

Throw in a casino manager addicted to Michelle’s sexual prowess, a Colombian thug who got schooled in poker by Aaron, both men’s willingness to get rid of Aaron, and we’ve got ourselves an erotic gangster vampire thriller that shocked even me on how it ended.
