  • Fantastically Awesome!!!

    #NetGalley #RiseOfOne Excerpt: 'The outbreak began in springtime rumours. Then, the airways and cables of the world charted the outbreak and panic, as the disease overwhelmed every population. Bombs and walls of fire tried to contain it. Chemical purges charred cities indiscriminately. In all, Rise counted barely five months from the beginning of the outbreak until everything was stilled, from late spring to mid-autumn. A lone SOS in Morse code was the last they heard from the human race, before Rise and his coven packed away their broadcast equipment, their radio, computers, and TV, putting it all into the depths of the root cellar.' What can I say? Vampires and Zombies?... Oh my! How can this be? Two of my favorite book character types in one book? How can this be? I asked myself, how will the vampires change when bitten? Will they become some kind of super fast, better dressed, blood sucking, over flesh eating, zombie vampires? Will they drink from zombie blood? Can they turn a zombie into a vampire? And if so, will the result be zombies who can magically heal after a shot to the head? The possibilities are endless! After reading the two Blood Brutes series prequels I was more than pumped to get my hands on debut author Dixon Reuel's first full length novel in the new Blood Brute series! What a marvelous genre bending premise! I went into the book truly wondering how these two worlds could complement each other. Rise, a vampire, and his small coven have been together over a century without ever having encountered another one of their kind. They have so many questions unanswered. How did they come to be? Are you born vampire or made? If so, how do you make one? They know they have special powers but how are they harnessed? What of incantations? The oldest member of the coven, Ogrim, has taught them the spell of homestead protection, but are there other incantations? After having pretty much circled the globe in their quest to find others, they have to consider the possibility that they may be the only remaining vampires and their questions may never be answered. This reality can only be compounded by the emergence of the blood brutes (zombies), and facing the likelihood that humans, the vampire's life source, and sustenance, may be rendered extinct. The coven already has only one human to feed from. (Cypriot, Rise's longtime love) How will the vampires combat this dilemma? Will the chronicles (tome of vampire history, so to speak), the vampire Salter writes so meticulously and steadfastly be left the only evidence that they ever existed? Will the WarRiders, (vampire hunters, and the coven's sworn enemies) contribute to the vampire's demise? Who will emerge victorious??? This book answers some of these questions while giving the reader thoughtful, colorful, engaging characters you will find yourself invested in. I loved every minute of this story, set in the beautiful backdrop of the English countryside! I highly recommend this book to those who enjoy sci-fi, fantasy, horror, and all things dystopian/apocalyptic! Even if you are not a zombie fan, I think you just may find yourself pleasantly surprised by this refreshingly different take on the genre! I CAN'T WAIT FOR THE SECOND INSTALLMENT COMING IN 2021 AND FULLY INTEND ON PREORDERING IT ASAP! Thanks so much to Netgalley and the publisher for an advance review copy of this book, publishing today, 12/15/2020!!!!! The pleasure has truly been all mine! ❤❤❤❤❤

    Thanks for your feedback!
