Editorial Reviews

Review

"Reise delivers a horror filled with satisfying moments of drama and suspense, as well as a sisterly bond that elevates the story to another level ... the truth found in the relationship between the two sisters, a sanctuary from the darkness that surrounds them and a glimpse of the beauty that we find in trust, in acceptance, in each other." --IndieReader

"Poetic and melancholic, the novel is a cross between True Blood and Interview with the Vampire. This is a coming-of-age vampire tale complete with mystery, romance and suspense that will surely entertain fans of the genre." --The US Review Of Books

"From the dank and rugged northern California coastline to the vibrant San Francisco club scene, Leah Reise has created a vibrant and surrealistic world and populated it with relatable characters. Her rookie novel features a sisterly love story, darkly passionate vampires, and rivalries between ancient blood thirsty factions. Freshly undead, Edrea is smart, sexy, and fiercely protective of her baby sister, a girl who looks for and finds trouble behind every iron gate." --City To Country Magazine

"What I love about this story, first, is the author's ability with description. Reise has a gift for painting the scene without over-telling, and still offering enough detail to allow for vivid imagery. ... second ... that much of it takes place in Sonoma County locations. Reise doesn't disappoint, taking her characters to Bodega Bay and Santa Rosa, though much of the story is set in San Francisco. ... third ... how large a role family plays in The Beauty in Darkness. There are definite themes that take place from both Edrea's old and new life, which I'll let you find out on your own to avoid any spoilers. All in all, I highly recommend this book for anyone who enjoys supernatural and vampire fantasy." --The Press Democrat

From the Author

Thank you for taking an interest in my debut! It truly means the world. The story is very special to me, because at first, I was writing it only for me. One day, I simply decided to sit down and bring to life the story that had been spinning in my head. I always enjoyed writing, both fiction and non-fiction. Writing can be quite therapeutic, and also a way to escape the real world. Well, in a way, I brought the real world into one of fantasy! Even though it is a vampire story, much of it is based on real people and events, and even dreams I've had. Of course, many of the characters were born from pure imagination, and they were just as intriguing to write about. So, if you love vampire stories, and also have a love for science, philosophy, and the wonders of the universe, this may just be the story for you!

Also, I am happy to announce the release date of Book 2, The Beauty in Darkness: A New Race. If you enjoyed the first book and would like to embark on the next journey, it will be available on both Kindle and paperback on January 11th, 2020!
