Crimson Siege

Blood Riders book 1

by Jay Raven

Available from AMAZON

In the godless 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…


My Review

I was very interested in how Jay would approach the vampires as he himself admits that Drakula had been done to death.  I was very impressed I was hooked very early on as the reader is thrown straight in to the horrific scenes of this ‘new’ vampire and from there the adrenaline keeps pumping.

There is a little humour interwoven in the story (at least I think so) and this softens what would otherwise be a little too ‘horrific’ for some.  

There are several characters introduced at the start and more join in as the story progresses.  They develop steadily through the story it all makes for a gripping fast moving read.  I am eager to learn more about the history behind this book but I am assured all will become clear in the next book.

I am very impressed with this modern day view of the undead Jay has added new elements and the whole thing works perfectly. 

Excellent read, well worth the 5 stars and I will eagerly await the next book.

Author Bio

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 on the edge of a 500-acre wood may have something to do with it.
