About the Author
Stacey Voss was born and raised in Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada . In late 2005, she and her daughter moved to Wuppertal, Germany to live with her fiancé. She wrote Thunder and Blood during the November 2007 National Novel Writing Month (Nanowrimo) event (partly while honeymooning with her husband in the Canary Islands). The story takes place in her hometown of Thunder Bay, reflecting Stacey's yearning to feel close to her roots once again. Realizing that four trips back to Canada in three years was an indication of more than simple homesickness, Stacey, her husband, and daughter moved back to Thunder Bay at the beginning of 2009. She is really enjoying being back in Thunder Bay (although she moved in the middle of winter) and has been drinking copious amounts of Tim Horton's coffee while she has been preparing her book for print. Her hobbies include reading, writing, camping and fishing and she considers herself to be quite a computer geek. Stacey has already begun the next novel in the Thunder and Blood series, entitled Thunder and Ice, and wants to assure her readers that many of the questions left unanswered in the first novel are answered in the second. After writing Thunder and Ice, Stacey plans to write two prequels in the series, one covering the transformation of DaVinci into a vampire and the subsequent Vampire War and the other about the origin of the first vampire.

Living as I do in Thunder Bay, it was fun for me to visualize all the familiar locations and experiences of this region. Even more fun was the highly original storyline that kept me guessing. Well-written and well-researched.
The author has a nice way of hinting at trouble then quietly backing away, just like in a good scary movie. No, don't go off alone... Well, maybe it's okay... Yeah, and he seems like a nice guy...
Then suddenly... Well, that would be giving it away. Suffice it to say the puzzle becomes even more intriguing when Christine awakes from the bump on her head. And even when explanations begin, much more is left to be imagined and slowly revealed. The author creates a fascinating gothic world replete with financial and political hierarchies and a very neatly imagined history.
Thunder and Blood, by Stacey Voss, is a novel with fascinating three-dimensional characters, the purest evil containing remnants of good, and the good constantly fighting against modern-day and mysterious failings. The story builds up to an exciting and satisfying conclusion; and the promise of more coming soon in Thunder and Ice is just "icing" on the cake.
Sisters Christine and Sarah leave Thunder Bay for a weekend girl's getaway, escaping recent problems that have weighed their lives down. However, instead of a weekend of fun and frolicking, the girls encounter a thick fog which turns their world literally upside down.
Beautiful Christine finds herself captured by the crazed Lord Radek, who is the stereotypical vampire and treats the humans that he is in charge of cruelly. While Sarah, who has a very extreme self esteem issue, finds herself being aided by a handsome and kind man, Hillard. Little does Sarah know that Hillard is a vampire, though a kindhearted vampire who only wants to do what is right - which is stop Lord Radek.
Together, Sarah and Hillard come up with a plan to save Christine before it is too late. As Sarah finds herself being more drawn to Hillard, how will she handle his secret, if it ever comes out? Will Christine fall under Lord Radek's mesmerizing spell and become his queen? So many questions and so many twists and turns fill this delightfully wonderful tale of Thunder and Blood.
As a person who does not have a lot of experience with vampire stories, I was completely and totally hooked on Thunder and Blood, the moment I started reading. Ms. Voss has a great talent for weaving a story that will leave the reader racing from page to page to see what is going to happen next. Thunder and Blood is also written in a way that once the reader starts reading, they fall into the story and the characters and before they know it, an hour or two has passed.
Not only did I love the author's style of writing, but I loved the way she humanized and brought her characters to life. I especially enjoyed Sarah and Hillard - they were fascinating and I easily and quickly formed an emotional bond with them. I have to also mention that the ending was fabulous! As I read the final words, this is the thought that came to mind (That can't be the end!" It was perfect segue into the next book in the series, Thunder and Ice.
