Overview

Lilith's lover is not just another pretty face. He is Lamech, the first vampire, who was cursed for killing Cain. Joining him in eternal night, she is driven by the blood-lust. Unknown to either of them is that when vampires have a child the baby is also cursed, but they are not vampires. Medusa eats the dead, but she too can love, but all of the boys are turned to stone if they see her face. The coven is attacked by a renegade who can walk by day and who controls werewolves. They must fight or die in this action packed thrill ride. Memorable characters and violent passion will enthrall and enchant you until the last page.

"The Witch of Endor” by R.K. Wheeler was such a great find! This is the second book of his I’ve read now and I’m so happy I discovered this author. I like that I can really lose myself in the story and with the fascinating characters that are so interesting and based on ‘historical’ figures we know, but in a way that makes them new and real. Wheeler’s writing is very descriptive and I felt like I was really inside this unique world he created. I liked that it wasn’t just another formulaic vampire story or Greek myth re-telling… original in many ways, I thought, but at the same time comfortingly familiar. My only beef was that it felt like it took too long to really get going (even though there is very interesting information and setup at the beginning) for there to be the tension needed to really hook us in to having to keep reading. At times I thought some of the narrative went on a bit too long and I would have liked to see more character dialogue pull the story forward. But this does get better in the second half, I thought. But despite these minor complaints I really enjoyed this book and especially the characters – really eager to see what will happen with them next, as the stage is set for some serious scandal! Definitely recommend for fans of myth/fantasy/ paranormal & action

I really like how even though this novel is partly about vampires, which is a topic that seems to have been covered from almost every conceivable angle, the story never becomes predictable or feels cliché, and there are some serious plot twists I didn’t see coming…If anything, Wheeler adds a nice depth and religious/mythological relevance to a trope that has of recent years become pretty silly and superficial (in my opinion). I liked how as I read along I met characters that I’d encountered in other stories, but presented in a new way and with a different perspective. I remember thinking how awful Medusa was in “Clash of The Titans” even though they very briefly touch on her backstory (for a few seconds) I have never read much more on her than that. Part of me wishes the book had been longer – I feel like there were so many places the author could really have dug in deeper and expanded the storyline and even shown us more of things developing as opposed to so much narration telling us about it. This feels more true in the opening 3 prologues and does get better, but that was a part where I didn’t have as much emotional impact as I’d like to. I really liked Wheeler’s take on vampire and human and mythic connections. pacing was good, but there were some minor editing things (a few typos, punctuation)…and tended to be over written on occasion. But overall an emotionally seductive and satisfying escape that I highly recommend to anyone who is looking for a great paranormal novel with a unique take on the vampire lore and Greek/Biblical myth. R.K. Wheeler did a terrific job making this story feel like something we haven’t read a million times, which is pretty impressive. Ready for more!

4.5 stars I read a lot of paranormal/fantasy books, so this is a genre I’m familiar with. I’d recently finished another book of R.K. Wheeler’s and really enjoyed it (“The Scions of Azazyel” – check it out), so I was curious to see how he would deliver in this one, “The Witch of Endor: Vampires”. Dr. Wheeler is unarguably a very talented writer, but more than that he genuinely impressed me with his thorough world-building and sheer creativeness and inventiveness on many levels even while being based on pre-established myth/lore. All too often I read works that feel clearly derivative of other books, and although I appreciate literary influences (as is felt here as well), when something this original comes along, it is a refreshing change of pace from so many others out there! After some time of getting acclimated to the storyline, (there is some setup with the characters of Lilith and Lamech and their backstory for the first quarter or so) I marveled at the unexpected twist their story took with the introduction of Medusa. I was hooked. Some of the writing was downright lyrical in the simple elegance of the prose, and other times I was nearly breathless from the intensity and violent passion. Love watching the dynamic with Lamech and Lilith develop, then with Medusa, and feel her struggle with her ‘uniqueness’. I finished in just a few sittings, and went through so many highs and lows, it felt like a rollercoaster. I was happily surprised with the ending (the last line) and now I feel like I really need to read the next one ASAP! Recommend for fans of paranormal/fantasy/ mythological/romance.
