This could of been a very scary book, but the editing was horrible. There were zero transitions between scenes and I had no idea what was going on. It hopped from character to character like a hummingbird flies from flower to flower. If the author had slowed down and put more effort into worldbuilding and transitioning, then this could of been a great book. - DNF

Honestly, when I chose to read this book, I chose it because it features my favorite type of paranormal creature. I knew this was going to be dark, more dark than I am used to reading and that was another reason I wanted to read this book. I wanted to see if I still loved vampires, even if they weren't my usual sexy, romantic type and you definitely won't see no sparkle here. These vampires in fact are darker , more evil and won't hesitate to kill. The fact that they change into creatures as well, for me is unique. While I enjoyed this different take on vampires, I was a bit confused with why Thomas set his eyes on the Mexican Cartel. I wish that was explained a bit more. For me, it just seemed so out of the blue that this happened. The story jumped from the past to the present, from 1945 and intertwined the concentration camps, Nazi's and vampires. which is another thing I found very unique and I enjoyed very much. Though, at first I wasn't sure if we were talking about vampires or shifters or both. Overall I enjoyed diving into a darker, horror filled world of vampires and yes, I can say I still like vampires after reading this story and I look forward to reading more and finding out where Thomas and Kara(Kavachi or Tetanya 's) story goes next.

I received a copy of this book from the author for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review, and all conclusions are my own responsibility. To be honest, finding this book listed as a horror title does not do it proper justice, for although some of the scenes depicted are quite gory, they feel justified in their appearance. It also isn’t just another vampire story, nor is it just a mystery and thriller. It is so much more than just a paranormal story, incorporating lore from the old Romany, or gypsies of Europe: Nazi predilection and fascination with genetic manipulation for a master race, governmental manipulation for positive ends and even some manipulation that relies on ties of friendship and loyalty. There is a heavy reliance on the long history of atrocities perpetrated against the Romany, as a society that has long been ‘different’ and feared for that difference, makes an interesting choice as three of the four major characters are all Romany in origin, the fourth is drawn into the action as a young girl. That sense of isolation and not having many people to rely on seems to become another character, as it is near palpable as the story unfolds. In a world where the government has taken everything from them, from their fangs to their real names, Tomas and Kara feel they have found a friend and ‘uncle’ substitute in Nikolai. This story was not meant to have a happy ending: manipulations for one person’s gain will always result in someone losing, and that becomes more apparent as the story progresses as well. What isn’t answered is who manages the last manipulations, and just where will it end? The story was beautifully written with inclusions of language and imagery that is as hauntingly beautiful as it is graphic. Since I am particularly prone to reliving horror stories (I haven’t read one in years after a bad experience) and I didn’t have sleepless nights with nightmares from this book, I am hard pressed to call it a horror novel. Of course, it has horrific elements, most of which deal with man’s inhumane treatment of one another; this really is a book that a conspiracy theorist would adore. I am looking forward to see where the author goes with this series of stories
