I hear their moans and eerie cacophony, louring me towards the grey arches.

Don’t look back!

My heels speed along as I count the pavement tiles, forty-five, forty-six, forty-seven…

A few more steps.

If I can reach the end of the alley I’ll be safe.

Don’t look into their eyes!

They’ll not chase me in broad daylight.

Keep walking.

They dare not leave the shadowy cloisters.

One more step.

I can almost grasp the daylight.


But a cloud drapes the sun and I’m plunged into darkness.

‘Stay,’ he begs and I look into his eyes as he sinks his fangs.

I’m not a big fan of vampire novels, but following my daughter’s recommendation, I’ve just started reading Erica Stevens latest Vampire trilogy, Fire and Ice. Book 1 is free so I thought I’d give it a go! I’ll be letting you know how it goes.

I read and reviewed some of her Captive series novels in an earlier post here some time ago, book 1 is free, too in case you want to try it out. I’ve read and can recommend it, if you like paranormal.

Do you enjoy reading about Vampires?

Any recommendations?
