Dracula: Hearts of Stone (Dracula is a good guy)
We start with a shiny new pot of boiling water and add too many evil vampires, and not enough of the good biters. Toss in one suicidal Dracula; add a cup of mayhem and a dash of romance. Oh yes, and a pinch of mirth. Stir lovingly and you have a novel by A. J. Gallant. If it sounds like the recipe for you then you must read Dracula: Hearts of Stone.
Please check out my author page for excerpts:
Unrealistic or not my writing gives me hope. But with something like 50 000 books published a month it is a little discouraging. I can just picture my book underneath that pile being crushed. I didn’t think there were that many writers out there. Must be a factory out there producing them like peanut butter cookies.
I HEAR YOU about the pile! I own more books than I have ever read! I'm the kind of reader who doesn't always read the next book on my list. Sometimes I read books that 'fit' with me or satisfy my readers craving at the moment. For example...I might read 3 out of 4 books in a series...but if I'm not feeling the fourth book when I start reading...I move on to the next...and usually come back to it later. Actually, I'm shocked by some series like The Breeds because when I first read a couple books I didn't like it....then a few years later I read like book 9 and thought...huh I need to try these again :-) Crazy how that goes. I've only read Fury for the New Species...and though it's okay...I wasn't the biggest fan of the writing style. Can I ask which was your favorite? Maybe that one will inspire me :-D
Yes I saw you were reading Vengeance Born and ordered it from my library. That will be the next on my list! I really liked your shelf. If you find any more that you find noteworthy to share please do!!
Hi! I was cruising your shelf and noticed that we share a 'scary' amount of similar read/owned books :-) If you like the New Species Series I would recommend Lora Leighs "Breeds" series. Another online series that is relatively inexpensive but I would consider a 'good read' would be Brides of the Kindred by Evangeline Anderson (try the first one to see if you like it...but my favorite is the second of the series). I have tons more I would reco - but wanted to throw those two out there ;-)
