Rhinehoth

- Centuries ago a great castle was built in the mountains of Germany's Black Forest. Its ancient guardians still thrive in its walls forever protecting its dark secrets, holding captive an enemy that threatens their very existence. Foretold is a story of an ancient warrior that is to return to the castle to free the captive Vampire Prince.
Simon Roberts was a petty thief who fled England to escape Scotland Yard after a series of unsuccessful jewelry store heists. He was recruited to do a job in Germany where he was to simply drive the get away car while providing a look out. He thought this was going to be an easy job and a way to break into the German crime scene. But things go terribly wrong and he ended up being the only survivor of the botched heist. Simon is quickly sentenced to a prison called Rhinehoth. This is where Germany sent the worst of the worst, surely not a place for a petty thief such as himself.
Rhinehoth is a great German castle that was converted in the late 1930's to a Stalag for war criminals of World War II. The converted prison's modern day inhabitants are relentlessly tortured, starved and sleep deprived. This contributes to the prisoners' delusional visions that help hide the truth and keeps Rhinehoth's secrets. Their captors are the army of Werewolves who have survived the centuries off the very flesh and blood of Germany's worst forgotten criminals.
Simon, imprisoned becomes plagued with visions from his subconscious ancient past with confusion of his modern day consciousness. He discovers through his visions that he is the ancient warrior, Guthrie who has come to free the Vampire Prince and all the captives while saving the world from a dark plan of biblical proportions that has been orchestrated over the centuries!

Loved it!!! AWESOME BOOK! Definitely a MUST READ!

I have had the opportunity to read both the first and the re-edited versions of Rhinehoth, and must say that it has improved a lot! It is now free from typographical errors and has grown into a very well written book that is full of action and unusual twists, which, as a great fan of Gothic I found extremely refreshing. I highly recommend this book!

Just like a few reviews have said about this novel, a Fun Thrill Ride! Reads like a visual movie in your head! Scary at some points, thrilling in others. Action packed! A True Gothic Horror Novel!

This book has extreme typographical errors that I am not accustomed to seeing. The story was well crafted and kept me reading most of the night. Quite a different twist than you are used to reading. I would like to see more from this author

Read the free book of this however i would love to see it all in ebook format. It seems to be a good read so far and will purchase it if it comes out in ebook.

Often times in horror stories writers overdo or under-do (if I could use that word) the build up and in an attempt to create an unusual and scary environment makes a hash of the entire book. However to my delight this was done perfectly in Rhinehoth as the author showed his technical and artistic ability with the use of actual historical events and a subtle but effective use of dreams and illusions. The only downside to reading this novel is the fact that the realism in it might keep you from sleeping as it is so scary. If you are looking for the perfect gothic horror novel, then this is definitely the one.

An action packed story of vampires and werewolves, but don’t expect the often overused battle of the two. The author has done a marvelous job of building an interesting and also captivating lead character while not overdoing the buildup to his purpose in the entire story. I also enjoyed Brian’s use of actual historical events which made the story even more realistic and enchanting. A wonderfully written book with a solid story line for everyone to enjoy.
