Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Mordred Soulis is a half-born vampyre, a bloodthirsty creature driven to madness if deprived of his salty elixir, but he is also an extraordinary man. The long-prophesized Chosen One, Mordred's destiny is to save humankind -- or bear witness to its extinction.

In L. G. Burbank's The Ruthless (sequel to The Soulless and the second volume of her projected five-volume Lords of Darkness saga) Mordred -- an antihero comparable to Michael Moorcock's albino sorcerer Elric of Melnibone and R. A. Salvatore's dark elf Drizzt Do'Urden -- awakens to find out that three centuries have passed in the blink of an eye. With the Knights Templar destroyed and his beloved mentor long dead, Mordred must continue his journey alone. But he's not without companionship; an unlikely friend -- a werewolf named Dugald -- accompanies him. From the Great Pyramid in Egypt to a ghost-infested island in the Mediterranean to catacombs deep beneath the Vatican to the nightmarish forests of Transylvania, the half-born vampyre searches for clues that will help him defeat an entity that is the essence of pure evil…

While Burbank's Lords of Darkness novels are (rightfully) classified in the horror genre, the saga could just as easily be categorized as adventure fantasy. With a cast of larger-than-life characters on a perilous quest to save the world, pacing that will leave readers breathless, and innumerable gore-splattered battles against a laundry list of supernatural adversaries (monsters, kings, gods, even Death itself), The Ruthless will satisfy horror and fantasy fans alike. It's an action-packed adventure that is good to the last bloody drop! Paul Goat Allen

    No doubt about it, L.G. Burbank is the successor to Anne Rice

    The Catholic Church created Vlad in their quest for immortality but lost control of him. He now wants to eradicate humans from the face of the earth and hopes that Mordred, the half vampyre he created will help him. Mordred rejects him and is on a quest to get the aid of the other vampire kings to help him in the upcoming battle with Vlad. He must prove to each of them he is the Chosen One, destined to defeat his creator and bring light into a troubled world...................... After gaining the acceptance of the Narrangantti vampyre king, he travels to Rome because an evil sect within the church has awakened Vlad who possesses one of their priests. When he arrives in Rome, he kidnaps Father Simon and travels with him to the Carpathian Mountains to the home of Vlad the Impaler. Vlad is trapped in the Impaler¿s body. He hopes to break the possession but ends up in mortal combat with his enemy and loses consciousness. He wakes up in Valhalla where he is to fight the second vampire king so that he will acknowledge Mordred as the Chosen One. They next seek a sacred object hidden by the Knights Templar in the New World unaware the evil sect within the Catholic Church, the Red Caps, are hunting for Mordred because according to the prophecy in the Dead Sea Scrolls, he can ruin their plans..................... No doubt about it, L.G. Burbank is the successor to Anne Rice. Her vampyre Mordred is unique, refreshingly original and doesn¿t give in to his dark side. Readers will admire him and empathize with the many travails he undergoes. THE RUTHLESS is a fast paced action packed supernatural thriller worthy of a Bram Stoker award nomination for its originality and creativity. The audience will eagerly await the next book in this terrific series.................... Harriet Klausner
