I promised I’d give you snippets of what the book bloggers who are taking part in the week-long Crimson Siege blog tour said. Thursday got the tour off to a great start with an amazing review from Jenni on the Odd Socks and Lollipops blog site. She wrote:
“I really loved Jay’s take on vampire lore and their psychic links to one another and I can’t wait to explore this in future books.
There were a lot of vivid and well developed characters, and I loved that there where enough twists and turns that you didn’t know who was going to be alive at the end of the book, nor what your favourite character might do next, each character was unique and flawed. I found Anton, Quintz, Kristina and Irina particularly interesting. I loved that Crimson Siege really makes is clear that it is not just vampires who have the capacity to be monstrous but humans as well.”
I was really pleased to read this as it’s exactly what I was trying to achieve – a story packed with individuals who were capable of great goodness but also amazing cruelty. My idea was to have no good guys and bad guys but just opposing forces, all willing to commit terrible atrocities in their struggle for dominance and survival.
And that’s a theme I intend to expand in the next instalment of the Blood Riders series.
