About the Author

I haven't read a vampire book in a long time... This book is the only vampire book I've read in 2015. I've shied away from the genre because I got bored with all the plot and I felt as though the genre itself have nothing more to offer. Then I saw a teaser for the second book of this series that got me really curious and wanting to read it. And of course, series should be started with the first book.

Looking at originality and uniqueness I'd say this book is a winner in that aspect. It's certainly have something different from all the vampire novels I have read before. It's also not just about a romance between a vampire and a mortal. It involved a lot of other things and other beings.

Sadly though, that lot of other things was what made it hard for me to get engaged into the story. All vampire novels though most run a certain plot like a formula have a unique background of where they based their kind of vampire. This book had that too (maybe). The problem was that, I was expecting that history or 'vampire ancestry'to be portrayed if not as an introduction at least little by little until you get the whole idea before you read the end. It didn't have that. I felt so lost as to what they are aside from being well, a vampire. It was as if there was suppose to be a prequel that somebody has forgot to mention to me about. Even after reading the first book, I don't have an idea what Dynasties and Nomads where. Well, of course I have a general idea but I'm not how they exactly mean in this certain vampire story. There are also other terms with regards to the hierarchy of authority mentioned that I wished was elaborated a little more.

Aside from that, I felt that the story was a bit slow.

The story started off exciting. But then after the first couple of chapters, the story slowed, then dragged, picked up a little at the end. I stuck with it, hoping something would happen. I never felt any connection with the protagonists. And their relationship felt disjointed. There was very little background and world building. I kept thinking that there was a preceding book. But the title says this is book 1. I think I will skip book 2.

This is the first book I have read by Michelle Rabe. It was a very interesting twist on some vampire stories that I have read. I enjoy the interplay between all the characters. Morgan is a strong female who can take care of herself, except when she gets too caught up in her head. Nicholas is a perfect example of a together male. Strong and protective, yet able to pull it back when he knows that it will cause a problem. Overall I enjoyed the story and am looking forward to the next one.

Morgan Blackstone is an old vampire who suddenly finds herself in a world of trouble. One of the lines that stuck with me the most is a great surmise of the story- "Morgan rules with an iron fist in a velvet glove." She is a tough individual who can't be kept down.

Right off the bat we're sent into a slowly unraveling mystery with plenty of action and drama in between. I was intrigued by the story line immediately, I had no clue what to expect next until the very end. What I really loved was her unique and fun twist on vampires. It was a mix of different lore with her own spin to it; not something you see everyday and yet not too extremely different from modern tales.
The character's personalities popped from the pages, letting me in to either love them or hate them. With the well drawn out detail, engaging dialog, and smooth transitioning from chapter to chapter, I not only enjoyed the story but I felt as if I were living it!
I will be eagerly looking out for more work from this author, and I highly recommend Cast in Blood to all paranormal fans!

Cast In Blood Review
Dennis Miller
When I was editor and host of Smoke and Mirrors, a great many stories came across my virtual desk, written by new writers hoping to hear their work presented on our parsec nominated podcast.
When I read Final Farewell, Michelle Rabe’s first submission, I knew immediately that I was in the presence of a real talent; it was, in short, the most original “take” on a vampire story I’d ever read.
After reading Cast in Blood, her first novel, that same sense of nuance, of her own vision, and originality comes through once again.
All the time and effort she expended “giving birth” to her vision shows- and shows from the rousing first pages.
The plot is exciting, and original; the characters compelling. This is a fine freshman effort and I truly look forward to her next work. She is a talent to watch in the coming years.
Kudos, Michelle!

As a die-hard Twilight fan I tend to shy away from "ordinary" vamp stories. Michelle was a new author to me and I decided to give the book a try!

I'm so glad I did! I love the refreshing plot the book entails. Each character is drawn into a light, detailed, and personalized probably better than many other stories I've read and Michelle nails the variety of a new story-line in a busy market. Morgan is a character you will relate to, enjoy, and want to follow more on! Interesting how that little tease of romance, mystery, and intrigue draw a person to a book. I highly recommend Cast In Blood, a great new Blackstone novel series to love!!
