'92 Horror authors you need to read right now'
Carole Gill -- the Blackstone Vampires series
~Charlotte Books EXAMINER
.
"In the attempt to find the just measure of horror and terror, I came upon the writing of Carole Gill whose work revealed a whole new dimension to me. The figure of the gothic child was there. Stoker's horror was there. Along with the romance! At the heart of her writing one stumbles upon a genuine search for that darkness we lost with the loss of Stoker."

Once again I was blown away by the amazing vampires that have sprung from the imagination of Carole Gill. Unholy Testament- The Beginnings continues the story started in The House on Blackstone Moor by going back in time to the telling of how the evil demon Eco came to be.
This book shows every depraved and evil side of not only Eco but the creatures and vampires he raised up as well. It travels through history with mention of historical characters such as Cleopatra, Atila the Hun, Joan of Arc, and many others.
I have read quite a few vampire books and none have captivated me as much as this series. It brings out the true meaning of both vampires and dark, gothic romance.
Five out of five stars and a must read

Is it possible to feel sympathy for a devious, evil creature like Eco? He is doomed from the start and acts from pure self-interest but somehow, Carole Gill gives this incredibly flawed character a deeper dimension. There were times I truly felt sorry for him, while hating him the next moment, but one thing this story didn't leave me is indifferent. Written in a journal-style narrative - it is, after all, Eco's testament that the book is about - the language flows and moves at a rhythmic pace, keeping the reader's interest.

The author dives deep into the suspense of the story right from the start. We know something terrible is about to happen, and when it does, we're left wondering how it will all unfold. Eco is a very interesting character and his story is heartbreaking, shocking, and frightening at the same time. It is worth telling and Carole's foray into history is written in beautiful prose that sticks in the brain. I love Ms. Gill's "old world" writing style, the lyrical voice that seems to bleed so effortlessly into the pages. That voice is kept alive and well in this sequel to The House on Blackstone Moor. Indeed, it is made more compelling. I have to give this story five stars and nothing less. I can't wait for book number 3 to come out so I can see what happens to Rose, Louis, and the adorable Simon and Ada.

First a disclaimer, Carole Gill is a friend on facebook and provided me with an e-copy of the book in return for an honest and balanced review. The review first appeared on my blog, Taliesin Meets the Vampires.

Now, I had reviewed the first volume, the House on Blackstone Moor, and found it to be a book of two halves, the first a gothic joy, the second a decent into hell. To a degree this is a book of two parts also (and in some respect, half of a book too).

The first half of this book places us with Rose, who is living an idyllic and vampiric family life with her lover Louis and the two vampire children Simon and Ada, who treat her like a mother. Louis is different from Rose and the children, being the child of a fallen angel - as is the evil vampire Eco. In the review of the first novel I suggested that they were the source of vampirism. This book tells us they are a source. The first half sees Louis called away and, when he sends word for Rose and the children to meet him in the Americas, they buy passage on a ship. But Eco and a group of evil vampires have taken over the ship and Rose is forced to read his journal - a confession from a being who believes himself to love Rose.

The second part of the book is, therefore, the journal - or at least part of it, which is why I said half a book as the reading of the journal continues in book 3 of the series. This takes us on a trip through Eco's long life (or edited highlights thereof).

This worried me I must confess. Eco was drawn as thoroughly evil in book one, a little like Lestat in Interview with the Vampire was drawn as purely evil.

This second installment of Carole Gill's The Blackstone Vampires Series takes off as we read the confessions of the main antagonist, the demon Eco, as he courts his captive, Rose Darton. For the protection of her new vampiric family, Rose must read Eco's evil testament recounting his origins and unholy mission of his undead existence. Eco's insane epistle is as enthralling as a horror from which you cannot turn away.

I enjoyed reading this novel. I thought the author presented the initial part of the story very well. The novel moves at a fast pace, which adds to the excitement. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys reading vampire novels. The author created characters the reader could relate to. The end of the novel leads naturally to a sequel. The authors command of the language was strong, which is not always the case in a essentially self published novels.
