Review Luna Sanguis

Paris 1925. A young woman is nearing her Eternal Vampire state as her birthday approaches. She is held captive by the hybrid vampire she created and slowly drained of her pure blood to keep his addiction in check. She outwits him and escapes to a chateau in the hope of reaching maturity. But he follows her unmistakable scent and massacres all that dare protect his supply of Eternal blood.

She awakens in a tiny room trapped and defenseless with amnesia, but something deep in her subconscious yearns to be set free by the next full moon – the date of her Eternal Birthday.

Her true self, Eternal, emerges in brief flashes of awareness to protect her from the horrors of this terrifying prison. Desperate, she forges an alliance with her true love, a gorgeous young doctor treating her. 

But her nemesis is out there somewhere, relishing the hunt for her blood – and nothing will stop him from becoming Eternal.

I received this book free for an honest review. Let me just say, wow! 

 Simon Okill has managed a new take on vampires. There are so many twists and turns that at first I was a little confused. However, the more I read the more it made sense. 

Count Lucien is an excellent depraved villain, with his two sidekicks Jacques and Claudette. Delicate Rose/Eternal is your main character who is running from Lucien. Then throw in a mental institute with your basic evil nurse and orderly, and a Doctor who thinks he is doing good. Then add a bunch of famous people who play minor rolls and you have a wonderful cast of characters. Delicate Rose/Eternal has so many vile things happen to her no wonder she went amnesic. The sexual depravity, the death of friends, and the blood loss. 

I cannot wait to read more by Simon Okill.
