Broken Gods by Michaela August


Title: Broken Gods--House of Rose Book III
Author: Michaela August
Publisher: Awe-Struck E-Books, Inc.
ISBN: 9781587496042
Genre: Paranormal

Vampires galore! If you like history and vampires, this mix set in the time of Knights Templar when Constantinople was the center of an empire will please you immensely.

Since most of us don't see vampires as protectors, this book presents an interesting premise that there can be other types of vampires, those who act as protectors to a certain house. This is the tale of how one woman became a member of these protectors during a time of upheaval for those they were to protect. Will she learn her craft or fail?

The talented author Michaela August creates a world of characters rich in variation and motives for their actions, a grouping to include rebellious and caring types, proving that vampires can have emotions and thoughts beyond the drinking of blood.

For the reader who wants something more than a rehashed tale of Dracula, I'm pleased to recommend this book as one written outside the outlines of "what we know" to bring something fresh to the realm of vampire tales. Enjoy.
