I’m on the tour for Crimson Siege. Check out my review!
In the Godforsaken badlands of Transylvania the fragile truce between mankind and monsters is about to explode…
When bounty hunters target one of 19th century Europe’s most feared vampire clans, the last place any lawman wants to be is caught in the middle…
But for Anton Yoska, Lord Marshal of the Imperial lands south of the Carpathian Mountains, fate has trapped him in a supernatural stand-off that can end only in a bloodbath.
A gang of mercenaries led by Anton’s former army comrade Milosh Drubrick have captured vampire aristocrat Stefan Modjeski, wanted for a string of frenzied murders, and have come to Anton to claim the reward. And as Stefan’s predatory undead kin lay siege to the jailhouse, Anton is faced with an agonising choice – hand over his prisoner and abandon the bounty hunters to their unspeakable fate, or stand and fight.
The jailhouse defenders are outnumbered and out of options. It’s a battle that can’t be won, certain slaughter for them all, and Anton can’t trust his scheming allies. But Lord Marshal Yoska isn’t about to surrender.
For he’s an experienced vampire hunter, a dangerous man when cornered, and a single minded warrior who knows there are worse things to fear than death…
It has been a very long time since I read a true, horror filled vampire novel. Crimson Siege is exactly what I was hoping it would be and more! There is no paranormal romance, the vampires in this novel are blood-thirsty monsters and they are scary.
This is one action packed novel, that sucks (pun intended) you in from the beginning and keeps you until the very end. I could not put it down, and read it in one day. I loved the gothic, historical writing style of Jay Raven. I loved the twists and turns, and I loved the creepy factor that stayed with me through the entire novel. I absolutely love when a horror novel is actually scary.
There are a ton of characters, but each one was unique and different from the others. It’s a testament to Jay Raven’s incredible writing skills. I had no trouble differentiating any of the characters.
I could go on and on, but I think you really should just read the book. This is a scary rollercoaster, full of twists and turns, that will keep you on the edge of your seat from start to finish. Even if horror is not normally your thing, I highly suggest you check out Crimson Siege! It’s on my list of favorites read this year!
Jay Raven is the author of Gothic chillers and historical horror reminding readers that the past is a dangerous place to venture, full of monsters and murderous men. He blames his fascination with vampires, witches and werewolves on the Hammer Horror films he watched as a teenager, but living in a creepy old house beside a 500-acre wood teeming with bats may have something to do with it.
