Book Description

Aecia has enjoyed her freedom as a human for only a few short months when her uncle Kasen goes missing! Fearing the worst, she embarks on yet another dangerous quest with her family and friends, and they are hurtled into a vicious conflict which will become as historic as The Great War, in which the bloodthirsty vamps were the absolute victors.

These are the first battles of The Blood Wars, and the secrets they uncover will terrify Aecia's soul, and plunge her into an age of confusion, life-threatening danger, and quivering doubts about the one truth she holds as sacred inside her heart; the fact that she is Only Human!

5.0 out of 5 stars A totally believable world December 16, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I was lost in this world of vampires and was sorry to have not read the first in the series. I was reminded of Anne Rice in the feeling that the author knew something we do not, and was gripped from the start as Aecia - a great character - battles with bravery and intelligence to do what she believes to be right. She is lonely and endures feelings of isolation, owing to her non-human abilities: she, realising she is different, does not fit in, and tries to conceal it from others in her group, to be like them, but she is not like them.

I have decided to go back now and read book one, having been gripped by this second in the series. I am a big fan of vampire stories, but I believe this book is very well written, by an original talent, and would be enjoyed by anyone who enjoys other-worldly tales of adventure with memorable characters and intriguing twists and turns.

Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Captivating and unique December 16, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The Blood Wars is by far one of the most unique books that I have came across so far through Kindle. I am very impressed with the direction that the author chose to take her story in and I am even more so impressed by the eloquent, vivid writing style that does a great job of expressing it in a captivating manner from start to finish.

There's a strong vampire influence in the story, but this definitely isn't your typical, generic vampire book whatsoever - the author isn't afraid to be different and I think that's what made me enjoy this book so much; I would even go as far to say that The Blood Wars has the potential to be the next "Twilight" hit but in a much different way.

Every character seems dynamic and special in their own right, each adding their own unique feel and substance to the book through their own personal experiences- but I especially admire the protagonist, Aecia, and I hope that the author includes her or a similar character in future releases (which I will be on the look out for). I must admit, I didn't really know what to expect at first but I am definitely glad that I had the chance to read through this book, it's beyond a worthwhile read. I highly recommend it for anyone looking for a refreshingly new addition to the genre.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good enough for me to want to buy the first in the series February 22, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Not my usual choice of read, but pleasantly surprised. An in-depth story with an original twist to the normal vampire theme. Yeah, definitely getting the first one.

The cover of this book was what pulled me in and I wasn’t disappointed.

What would you do if your life was threatened yet your captor could read your every thought? Well almost every thought?

If this thought doesn’t make your head spin, let me add vampires to the mix.

But all is not lost as you too can communicate with your mind and can use your mind to inflict pain.

Added to all of this is a fast paced, suspense laden rebellion filled with twists and turns.

I found out that this was the second book in the series and will be reading the first book next. However, despite starting with the second book instead of the first, I wasn’t lost. The story is well written. It is as clear and concise as the book’s main character Aecia.

I liked Aecia immediately. The book is fast paced but the author writes well and in a way that one can keep up.

More About the Author

I was born to Irish parents in Crumpsall, Manchester and lived in the working community
of Trafford Park until I was 11 years old. Warm memories of this time in my life of love, community and belonging.
We moved to Davyhulme where I was educated at St Pauls, Urmston and De-La Salle college in Salford.
After longing to be a writer since I was a child I finally realised my dream with FOUR'S A CROWD and I hope this book will be the foundation of a successful and enduring writing career.

The genre of Teen/Young adults,suits my writing I think as I am a 47 year old kid at heart. The boundless curiosity and hope of a child is something to be embraced by us all for as long as we are able to enjoy it.

So, here goes, November 2012, time to get ready, get set, go!! x
