About the Author

Thomas was born in Bangor, Wales, in 1966, and raised on Anglesey, the island at the northern tip of Wales. He lives in Kent under another name with his wife, the author and journalist, Marnie Summerfield Smith. It was Stephen King's vampire novel Salem's Lot that fired his ambition to be a writer. He was a journalist for more than 20 years, working for local, regional, and national papers as a reporter, sub-editor, design editor, sports editor, night editor, and deputy editor. His first novel, a Welsh-language vampire story, was published in 1996. He's had three novels, two collections of stories, and two non-fiction books published in Welsh. He is also an award-winning playwright. On April 1, 2008, Snowbooks published his first English-language novel, Maneater. Skarlet, the first book in The Vampire Trinity, followed in 2009. Prey, the sequel to Maneater came out in that year, as well. He is now working on Kardinal, the last part of The Vampire Trinity. Thomas is represented by Mariam Keen at the Whispering Buffalo Literary Agency.

Format: Paperback
Maneater is infused with vice: greed, and power and Emson flexes his literary muscle to convey just that. He's plausibly set forth a tale of two ancient bloodlines warring for countless centuries, waging their battle in flashbacks and in contemporary London. The chronicle of Laura Greenacre, the last full-blooded werewolf of the Greenacre clan is riveting as she butts claws with the Templeton's, the distinguished society family responsible for massacring all the members of her vast clan. She'll stop at nothing to exact revenge.

Shunning their lycanthropic side for generations, the Templeton's finally realize the power they've denied themselves. Getting their hands on Laura's pure blood and wielding it indiscriminately is the goal of the new patriarch intent on building up his clan's strength and power once again. It's a battle to the bloody, meaty death as the Templeton's hire a team of mercs to take out Laura.

Emson is deliciously inventive, brutal and precise. Maneater is like no other werewolf tale you've read recently. A lonely werewolf girl, Laura Greenacre is not. She's nothing like Millar's character, or any other shifter you've been exposed to. Instead she is a ravening beast, ruled purely by instinct, and dead set on revenge. Emson does not trifle with wasted energy at times; we don't get to really peer in depth into the minds of his characters to make an emotional connection with the exception of Laura and perhaps Thorn. And while there is a certain fragility to her, don't be fooled, Maneater is meant to be undiluted horror and that's exactly what it is.

I purposely had to stop tearing so fast through the book in order to really savor each scene.
