About the Author

He is the author of "The Spooky Chronicles" and the vampire thriller series "The Matriarch," creator/critic for MovieCrypt.com and "ghost writer" for horror host Grim D. Reaper. Kevin currently resides in the Houston, Texas area with his wife and fellow horror author Linda S. Cowden along with four dogs, three horses, and at least a dozen cats (don’t judge). His author blog is at ThinkingSkull.com.

The Matriarch: Guardians, is BETTER than the original!
Janiss Connelly is the new head of Cedarcrest Sanctum, the retirement home where her vampire blood lengthens the lives of the elderly residents, and their human blood keeps her "alive".
Her maker, Ian, was killed along with her mentor, Louisa, and she is now seeing him in her mind, along with Daniel, the only person she ever killed.
Hector is hiding his undead brother away in the garage, hunting vampires an anonymous person alerts him to the whereabouts of. He wants to kill his brother's maker.
Eric is Daniel's brother, a ghoul for their uncle who wants to kill Janiss.
When all these worlds collide, the reader gets taken on a thrill ride!
I thought the first book was good, I did, but this one really is better.
The secondary characters are very likable (or detestable, and the narration is much more confident. The reader can tell that Kevin Ranson really grew as an artist between books and the result was this.
Vampire fans will love the new twists he's put in this world, and it is so realistically written that you may find yourself looking over your shoulder at night!
The only reservation I have is that, at times, Janiss seemed like a minor character to her own story. But that's a small thing compared to the rest of the book.
Vampire lovers have found their next favorite vamp series!
One thing I would like to say is it all makes sense and the plot moves fluidly.
I read the whole book in two days it was just that good.
Can't wait for the next installment.
