    This author ROCKS!

    The Rysalian Empire had been near extinction. All their females were useless. When the men learned that the females from Terra could be impregnated by their race, they created Retrieval Units to abduct them. ........ Of all the warriors in the Empire, the ones known as Reapers were most feared. They were the elite, feared by men and women alike. Trained from birth to hunt and kill, then altered at the age of ten for other special talents, Reapers knew no fear and no love. Prime Reaper Captain Kamerone Cree was the best of them all. The Fleet called him "the Iceman". .......... The Resistance had noticed Cree's looks toward Dr. Bridget Dunne. With careful planning the Resistance had Cree taken to Behavioral Modification (Be-Mod 9) for "punishment". Unknown to the Empire, the doctors of Be-Mod 9 were really re-programming the Prime Reaper. .......... That was easier said than done, for Reapers were what Terra called Vampires. A bloodbeast lived within each Reaper. They were usually merciless warriors with a high pain tolerance, but whenever one entered into Transition the beast took over. The Resistance chose Bridget as his mate. Cree and Bridget would be used to change the Empire, whether they liked it or not! ........... ***** A lot of torture takes place within this book. Anyone who enjoys the series of STAR WARS will find themselves glued to the pages of this novel! I do not care if you are male or female! It is a Dark Fantasy novel with a touch of Romance. I practically GROWLED at anyone who made me stop reading for even a few minutes. It is THAT good! Highly recommended to ALL Fantasy and Sci-Fi fans out there! *****

    Highly Recommended

    Book 1 of the Wind Demon Series is thrilling. It's like a roller coaster ride and a definite must read!! I love Charlee's Reapers and after you read this book so will you.

    Different for me

    Hmm, that was not what I expected. I don't normally read stories about different worlds. This was about Reapers (beings created by a parasite) who live on a different planet. When all of their females died, they went to earth and captured females. Story is really very, very involved, and too much to explain here. But there are villains, heroes, love, manipulation ( both of heart and mind) that make this an interesting read. There are a whole lot of details in here and at times I found myself struggling to continue reading. But then story would pick up again. I will continue on to next book because I really do want to know what happens next. Maybe this story will lead me to read more like this. Hmmm...

    Exciting blend of vampire and science fiction

    Due to their blundering warrior-scientific heritage, the Rysalians must steal females from other planets after accidentally eradicating their own women. Prime meat comes from places like Terra. However, these independent females refuse to simply turn into ¿loyal¿ subjects or sex fodder for the Reapers, another Rysalian warrior-scientific species experiment. The earthlings secretly head up the Resistance <P> The lords sitting on the Bench of the Court of Military Justice declare Captain Kamerone Cree guilty, shocking all reapers since their word is usually law. Cree, the highest ranked and recognized most deadly of reapers, is sentenced to active reinforcement at the Ministry of Behavioral Modification. Kamerone knows the resistance is involved and thirsts for vengeance. <P>The resistance ¿controls¿ key Ministry of Behavioral Modification positions. They plan to insure that Kamerone falls in love with a Terran to win him to their side as the beginning of a more powerful opposition. They already have programmed Dr. Bridget Dunne to fall in love with Kamerone. <P> BLOOD WIND, the first novel in the ¿Wind Demon¿ trilogy, is an exciting science fiction tale that uses romance and vampire elements to enhance a strong plot. The story line never slows down as readers observe an advanced technological society using its science to control and change people. Cree has many vampire traits, but love is not supposed to be in his genetic make-up. Does he love Bridget, an intrepid heroine who turns his bark into more than his bite, because of science or his heart? Charlotte Boyett-Compro has written a fabulous novel that will leave readers thirsting for books two and three. <P>Harriet Klausner

    Great Read from Front to Back!

    Charlotte Boyett-Compo has written a stunning read of futuristic romance combined with suspense and thrills. I sat of the edge of my seat, chewed my nails, and couldn't wait to fing out what happened next. This book is fast paced and you'll fall in love with her work from the minute you open the book. This is one author to keep your eye on!
