Some things are not meant to die…
When David stumbles upon a tragic young woman in a sordid Limehouse pub, he has no idea she’d recognize him as the last vampyre alive, nor that she’d be the one to pull out his story. Yet as he recalls his life from the sweltering vineyards of Ancient Rome to the cold horrors of Medieval Romania – as well as his tumultuous past with the mad and mysterious Lucius – he realizes she is much more than what she seems.
Gothic horror and mythological fantasy blend seamlessly together in this thrilling adventure, breathing new life into vampire lore as it reveals its true origins. The Ancient Ones is a tale of myth, mayhem, and magic … with a dash of romance that bites.
The Ancient Ones by Cassandra L. Thompson is a beautiful blend of Gothic horror and fantasy. It is not your typical vampire novel, and I absolutely loved this take on vampire lore!
This historical story, like, and myth is so realistic. This is both fascinating and enthralling. The writing is beautiful and I couldn’t put this down.
Honestly, there is so much to say, but I think you would rather read this than spend any more time with my review. This is an absolutely brilliant read that should not be missed!
