BOOK REVIEW: The Children of Lubrochius

Not your sparkly, fluffy, vampire story.

The Children of Lubrochius (From the Ashes of Ruin, #1)The Children of Lubrochius by Matthew D. Ryan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Oh holy wow! I don’t even know how to describe this book to give it the credit it deserves. This book is dark, twisted, creepy, and full of action. I had to keep putting it down due to it being a bit dark. I couldn’t even read it at night! The vampire is just creepy *shivers* I wouldn’t want to cross paths with him or the main character. She’s more creepy and twisted than he is! But I loved it! It’s a great book filled with mages, a vampire, and other creatures! I’m glad that this is the first book to the series since I can’t wait to read the other ones and give myself more nightmares! P.S. This is not a “sparkly, lovely” vampire book. It’s dark and the vampire is EVIL!

Book Summary:

A Sorceress with a Vampire is a Terrible Thing to Face … In this, the exciting sequel to Drasmyr, Coragan and his companions face a new enemy, a crafty sorceress with the power of magic at her beck and call … not to mention a sinister vampire. Now, Coragan must enter a world where the darkness holds threats from both the living and the dead, and any man who stands his ground may not live to see the dawn. Korina Bolaris is a young and talented sorceress who has captured a powerful vampire and is coming into her own, working her terrible magic in secret, and gathering minions to serve her and her demon god, Lubrochius. Hers is a silent evil, immersed in magic, gaining strength amidst the shadows, preparing to strike when the time is right. Can anyone stop this sorceress, this demon worshipper with both vampire and magic at her side? Once again, the wizards of Drisdak call on Coragan of Esperia, the bounty hunter, and his two companions: Galladrin the Rogue, and Borak the Warrior. It begins with a simple missing person investigation, but the more the men learn, the less clear things become, and soon they find themselves drawn into the sinister machinations of a sorceress who wields magic with unprecedented ease and will stop at nothing to achieve her goals. Into this mix, comes the young man, Gaelan Durragonn, the only survivor of a village razed by goblins. Gaelan is seeking a new life. He takes on a job as a simple guardsman, but soon his own yearning drives him into greater things: he finds himself a mercenary at Coragan’s side, confronting a dark and sinister evil that is spreading like the plague. Find out if, together, they can outwit the sorceress Korina Bolaris, her magic, and her terrible vampire ally.
