Editorial Reviews


Sons of Devils is an enthralling mystery and would be enjoyed by anyone who enjoys a dark narrative with moments of humor.-- Foreword Reviews

I used the word epic earlier and that is what it is...The descriptions are magical, history and world-building is strong, the plot is well paced (if it was all one book) and intricately weaved, and the characters leap off the page and grab you both round the heart and the throat... Highly recommended --Lillian Francis

I have always expected Alex Beecroft to give me beautiful, literate writing, and to take me places that the usual romance writers don't go. She doesn't disappoint in Sons of Devils. The only reason I knocked off a star from my review is because this book and its sequel, Angels of Istanbul, should rightly be one volume...

There is precious little romance in this book--only the potential for romance. It is the kind of book that will frustrate readers of M/M fiction--but not readers who are looking for superior romantic fiction with gay characters. I can't wait to start Angels of Istanbul, but would have been willing to pay extra not to have this story so bluntly cut in two. --Ulysses Dietz for the Paranormal Romance Guild

This is a vampire story like no other. What it truly encompasses is an epic undertaking of an alternate history, fantasy, paranormal combination. Beecroft's brilliant talent for world building is on point; it is rich, powerful, and impressive.-- It's All About The Book

If you want a well drawn, suspenseful action story with a rich (alternative universe) historical backdrop - go for it. It is so good.--What a Strange Duck

Alex Beecroft has created a tour-de-force of romantic adventure...Arising (assuming there aren't more books in this world to come) is a fascinating, beautifully written, page-turning epic novel.
In short, Angels of Istanbul is a marvelous book when read with its companion volume, Sons of Devils. Beecroft gives dedicatory nods to both Tolkein and C.S. Lewis, whose books I know well. What she has done that they did not do, is transpose ideas of magic and faith into the known historical world, turning it upside down only insofar as she needs to in order to set her plot and her characters going. -- Ulysses Dietz for the Paranormal Romance Guild

The story is built on the foundation of historical knowledge and a vivid imagination, then constructed with a mix of many complex elements. Alex Beecroft manages to explore and discover the heart and soul of shared humanity through cultural differences, personal demons, real demons, faith, and magic. I highly recommend Arising to anyone who enjoys a sweeping fantasy story featuring a full cast of flawed, complementary characters. -- All About The Book

From the Inside Flap

By popular demand - and also by my own preference - The Arising is the story I originally wrote in one volume which my publishers split into Sons of Devils and Angels of Istanbul. I'm excited to be able to finally present it as it was meant to be read, and I hope that you will enjoy it more now that you can just turn the page after the cliffhanger and read on.

What kind of a story is it? It's a fantasy historical set in the 18th Century, a bit of a homage to the first half of Dracula by Bram Stoker, which was the half that I liked, and an attempt to turn back the clock to a time when vampires were genuine monsters. It's not exactly steampunk, but it might be sailpunk. A lot of people have been saying "why can't we just have queer heroes in epic fantasy books instead of making it all about the romance?" I agree. So The Arising is the queer historical fantasy I heard people wanted, and if you like it, I have two more volumes planned out. Let me know, and I'll start writing!
