I have a confession to make. This is hard for me. Its embarrassing. Here goes... sigh... I have never done a blog tour before. I know I know, how could this be? I have 3 books out, I have known lots of authors who have done them, but a blog tour virgin I have remained. Well...I was never asked before sniff sniff. So when Simon Okill asked me to join his blog tour for the release of his new book, I jumped at the chance.
Simon is the author of the very popular Nobody Loves a Bigfoot Like a Bigfoot Babe and his second kick at the can is Luna Sanguis -
Paris 1925. A young woman is nearing her Eternal Vampire state as her birthday approaches. She is held captive by the hybrid vampire she created and slowly drained of her pure blood to keep his addiction in check. She outwits him and escapes to a chateau in the hope of reaching maturity. But he follows her unmistakable scent and massacres all that dare protect his supply of Eternal blood.
She awakens in a tiny room trapped and defenseless with amnesia, but something deep in her subconscious yearns to be set free by the next full moon – the date of her Eternal Birthday.
Her true self, Eternal, emerges in brief flashes of awareness to protect her from the horrors of this terrifying prison. Desperate, she forges an alliance with her true love, a gorgeous young doctor treating her.
But her nemesis is out there somewhere, relishing the hunt for her blood – and nothing will stop him from becoming Eternal.(
Luna Sanguis is a love story, wrapped in a mystery, wrapped in a tragic opera. Its a paranormal romance of the vampire variety, but don't start assume you know how it will go. You don't.
Its a departure from the normal paranormal formula. It takes us along with the main character Delicate Rose while she tries to solve the mystery of who she is and why she is so terrified.
Her main clue, is one word.... Eternal. She chants it over and over try to bring back her memories. She is confused and terrified. Her only goal is survival.
The prose is poetic and beautiful. The flow of the story takes the reader on the terrifying, disorienting and thrilling journey of Delicate Rose. She is running for her life without even knowing who she is and as the mystery is revealed to the reader we see the root of her terror and how it all began. The book is so much more than a vampire novel. It is a story of tragedy, true love, madness and debauchery. Luna Sanguis is well worth your time and I recommend it as a read for the vampire lover, but also anyone who loves a great mystery. I love when authors step outside the box and it works this well. Simon has stepped outside the vampire genre box and with Luna Sanguis he's doing victory laps.
