About the Author

The author, M.E. Brines, spent the Cold War assembling atomic artillery shells and preparing to unleash the Apocalypse (and has a medal to prove it.) But when peace broke out, he turned his fevered, paranoid imagination to other pursuits. Designer of more than twenty sci-fi wargames and The Struggle of Nations play-by-e-mail game (all available at www.MEBrines.com) he spends his spare time scribbling another steampunk romance occult adventure novel, which despite certain rumors absolutely DOES NOT involve time-traveling Nazi vampires! A member of the British Society for Psychical Research, he is a long-time student of the occult, a committed Christian, and author of two dozen books, e-books, chapbooks and pamphlets on esoteric subjects such as Alien Abduction, Alien Hybrids, UFOs, Conspiracies, Mind Control the Falun Gong, esoteric Nazism, the Knights Templar, astrology, magick, the Bible, the spear of Longinius and Christian discipleship. His work has also appeared in Challenge magazine, The Traveller Chronicle, Weird Tales, Empirical magazine, Midnight Times, The Outer Darkness, Tales of the Talisman, and The Willows magazine.

More About the Author

But when peace broke out, he turned his fevered, paranoid imagination to other pursuits. He spends his spare time scribbling another steampunk romance occult adventure novel, which despite certain rumors absolutely DOES NOT involve time-traveling Nazi vampires!

A former member of the British Society for Psychical Research, he is a long-time student of the occult and a committed Christian who sees himself as a modern-day Professor Van Helsing equipping Believers for battle against the occult Principalities and Powers that rule a world in darkness. (Ephesians 6:12)

The author of three dozen books, e-books, chapbooks and pamphlets on esoteric subjects such as alien abduction, alien hybrids, astrology, the Bible, biblical prophecy, Christian discipleship, conspiracies, esoteric Nazism, the Falun Gong, Knights Templar, magick, and UFOs, his work has also appeared in Challenge magazine, Weird Tales, The Outer Darkness, Tales of the Talisman, and Empirical magazine.

*I'm often asked how I square my Christianity and "messing around" with the occult, as if I'm partial to bestial things with a goat under the amber light of the moon or something. No so. I'm a student, in the same way I used to study Soviet weapons and tactics back when I was a US Army officer. This gives my work a unique perspective no matter what your belief system. I don't judge. I just present the information and let the reader decide.

And I'm thankful. With a name like Maitre'd to the Damned I was expecting a really cheesy vampire book. This definitely had lots of vampires but was nothing like the name would lead you to believe. Fans of Mario Acevedo would likely enjoy this. Another big bonus is that this was really two full length novels in one. An unexpected great read, I will likely read more from this author.

The main character is an average, everyday guy who's down on his luck, has a wife recovering from cancer, a job he hates, a crappy apartment, lousy neighbors, and is less than enthusiastic (at best) about the government. How does someone who's moral compass only points in a general direction make ends meet in a scenario like this? Steal things for lawyers and kill vampires for cash, what else?

How could this book not be a winner?

This was a enjoyable, easy reading and a little darkly comedic vampire-gonna-die story with just a little conspiracy theory. It's set in the here and now, not a make believe cheesy fantasy world. I found it very well written AND edited (thanks for that, by the way). There was some actual research done to get historical facts straight, and nothing in the story line was seemed unrealistic...other than the vampires, of course. I was bummed when I finished the book and found there were no sequels; I wanted more.

The noticeable lack of a romantic smooch-fest of a story filled with soft porn, scenarios that would never happen, and sparkly brooding GQ models with self-worth issues was greatly appreciated.

Mr. Brine: Thanks for writing this book, and please continue this story-line. You've got gold here.

Decent read. Yes its two stories in one, but they are linear and elements of the first play into the second. Good old fashion Vampires! no glittery crap no forests etc. Good old fashion stake'em or melt em with Holy Water! As usual for Brines, His knowledge of history and paranormal comes through in subtle details. After all the mass produced garbage in the genre its like finding little Easter eggs.

Maitre'd to the Damned starts off mid-action in what ends up being a significant plot point. There is no way to know that until later, so you're left wondering for quite awhile. After the opening, the book backtracks the story for a slow, drawn out slog back to the time of Chapter 1.

Much of the book was comprised of bits of interesting story surrounded by filler that didn't add to the plot. I was reading it in small chunks at bedtime for over a week, because I'd get sleepy.

The storytelling became interesting around the 70% mark. At that point, I didn't want to put it down anymore and finished the last 30% in one day.

The core story and idea is great, but less stubborn people may give up and never finish the book. It would have had better flow as a novella.
