Book Description

When vampires and angels join forces against humanity nothing matters but survival.
The final stand on ancient ground, when blood saturates desert sand and the only sounds are the walls falling and mothers wailing with their children... is this the end?
We never thought it was possible, yet here it faces us and there's no way out.
The Eye of Ra is all that's left between us and obliteration - goddess save us!


This is what Author Bonita Franks says about Elizabeth Rose...

Janus is a good name for an author who looks both ways: one set of eyes to the real, the tangible--the everyday sounds of conversation, the drool of camels and the authentic cadences of Syrian street talk; the other looks to the surreal--to the apocalyptic visions of dizzying magic and impossible dreams. “Their precious life forces slowly dripped like a shower of crimson teardrops into the receptacle below . . . . the odor of rotting flesh hung like a blanket in the stagnant air . . . .”
I found myself almost mesmerized looking at a rich tapestry of magical people and places, alongside the actual sights and sounds of Syria. Janus’ prose catches the reader up in her elaborate, exotic detail. We see the tents, the musicians, the dances: “The sea of flames sent waves of embers streaming out behind her like tiny fairies . . . .” And just when we think the magic will permeate us completely, there comes the sound of SUV’s and pickups!
Elizabeth Rose is a masterful juxtaposition of real and surreal. I almost want to find music that some master could compose to play while I read. I imagine the music accompanied by a hooded cobra, sinuous and hypnotic, winding tales as old as the universe. Great job, Janus Gangi Author

5.0 out of 5 stars beautiful story April 25, 2012
By TreeTx
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a short story with amazing detail! Beautifully written with great descriptions. You feel the intense emotions during the battle scenes as well as feel the love that Elizabeth and Vincent share. I loved the building of intensity Janus writes in her story. The characters interact very well with each other. Great story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Short April 24, 2012

This is the frist work I have read from this author. It is a richly woven tale the brings to life the area and the people from ancient Egypt. Set in a time with Vampires and Angels working together to take over the area and make the humans slaves. The story is told by Elizabeth Rose and her charming husband Vincent. There is an heir of mystery in the words. The beautfil culture and lives of the people are bright to life from the pages with her eloquent words.
A definate must read. Loved it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing short story April 23, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Author Janus Gangi and her recent novel Elizabeth Rose is one of a kind. Janus Gangi has managed to weave vampire and angel into a beautiful piece of finely sewn lace. The story takes place in ancient Egypt and the character Elizabeth will mesmerize you with a special blend of her own unique storytelling, with such grace that you will feel like you are there listening to her. Vincent Blair, well I have two words: charming and lethal. Janus has pulled in some very accurate and incredible research on cultures here, and this is a must read for anyone. Great job Janus, and thank you.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great short April 23, 2012
By Poppet
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a magical short story mostly set in the past when angels and vampires ran rampant through ancient Egypt. It's one heck of a read with the walls of an ancient stronghold falling when split by angels (a fabulous alternative view on some of our old stories), and rich with culture most of us will never see, smell, or experience. It's an evocative tale which is a precursor to another book (Stolen Moments). A really enjoyable *lose yourself somewhere foreign* quick read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cerebral horror fiction. May 25, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
One thing in standard horror is the fast-paced action that the readers of that genre seem to expect. THIS IS NOT THAT TYPE OF STORY.

Elizabeth Rose is a well-crafted tale that has sweeping scenery and a literary feel that is seldom found in these stories of vampires...or vampyres (as there is apparently a difference in Janus Gangi's "Providence" series). It is obvious that Ms. Gangi has a love for the Middle Eastern culture and it shows.

Admittedly, this may not be a book for everybody. Yes, it had angels and lycans and vampires...but it is not your typical horror. It has depth and shows a potential for an entire world where the reader can become a witness through the eyes of very believable characters.

This tale is mostly a story-within-a-story as Elizabeth Rose recounts a significant moment in her history. I have a feeling this is a launch pad of something wonderful and will be eager to read more as the series unfolds.

3.0 out of 5 stars Pleasant read but... May 16, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I must say that the story is quite interesting, and I was attracted to the descriptions of Syria -- geographical and cultural.
There is the need of prompt editing for punctuation, especially the use of commas, semi-colons and "--". I also found quite a few glitches in verb tenses.
I do not read Arabic, but I do read French. It is my opinion that if a foreign language is included this should be with done correctly, especially if a leading vampire is speaking -- vampire leaders are supposed to be perfect.
Once the above is corrected I am sure that I could enjoy the story in all its worth.
BTW, the story is told in just the right "length." Not too short... Not too long...

5.0 out of 5 stars Vivid storytelling! February 21, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've had this on my list of must-reads for some while now, but that mental list gets lost when you look at your Kindle library. I'm sorry it took me so long, but I'm glad I finally got to it...because, as short stories go, this is a humdinger.
It's almost like to reading a full-length novel there is so much in such a short space! That, by the way, isn't a bad thing at all, because the richness of the detail, culture and legends leaps off the page at you and draws you in.
I like how Janus Gangi draws two separate times and tales together, using the method of bards of old, and the telling is vivid and intense. Read this slowly to savour the detail, and if you get a bit lost, no worries, go back a bit to re-savour it! Elisabeth Rose is an excellent starter, I believe, to the main course - the Stolen Moments novels (which I can't wait to sink my teeth into!).
Even now, hours after finishing it, I can see the Taurus Mountains, smell the devastation of Jericho...and the little twist in the tale at the very end will stay with me for a long time.

5.0 out of 5 stars So much for so little May 9, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This story was eloquently written, bringing the reader into the tribes of the Middle East and throwing them into battle along-side the main characters. The cultural narrative, describing the foods they ate the clothes they wore and the games they played brought to life the beauty of a place some of us have misunderstood for some time. The accuracy of the background subjects within the story made it a quality not quantity read. I will be reading the next installment to the Providence Series.
