This international thriller/contemporary fantasy is a nail-biting ride that is grisly but somewhat tongue-in-cheek, a brutal tale of horror and the occult that doesn’t take itself too seriously. It includes romance, continental adventure, action, suspense, and dozens of vivid characters from around the world.
The adventure starts with The Jakarta, an elegant cruise ship sailing the exotic seas in Indonesia with a passenger list of ninety, unsuspecting people.Jane and her best friend, Remy, are just getting know the rest of the small group of young twenty-somethings when the ship is attacked by pirates. However, Leon and his band are not your usual pirates – they want something else.
However, Leon and his men are not your usual pirates – they want something else besides the usual booty – they are taking female hostages to feed on. They are cruel vampires.
In their flight to escape Leon and his men, they become lost at sea for weeks, are out of water, and have nearly lost hope of ever finding rescue when they finally catch sight of land; a dangerous rain-forested island that seems deserted. However, their fight for survival has only just begun.
They are not alone.
Fate is cruel because this island is Leon’s Lair.
With The Jakarta incident, Leon and his crime ring have made the mistake of attracting too much attention to their many worldwide sins. The press is going crazy over the news that vampires actually exist. That amazing news hits the media like a tsunami.With The Jakarta incident, Leon and his crime ring have made the mistake of attracting too much attention to their many worldwide sins. The press is going crazy over the news that vampires actually exist.
The survivors of The Jakarta, Jane, Peter, and ten women, are caught in the middle of the paparazzi storm. They are being hunted by not only the press, but by Leon. He demands revenge for trying to kill him. And he wants Jane
Some people are fascinated and find the odyssey entertaining. Magazines and the Internet are vampire-viral. Vampires and pirates are hot Twitter and blog posts. T-shirts emblazoned “Vampire’s Need Love, Too” are a #1 seller.
However, the majority of people around the world are terrified. Police forces and the media are digging up old cases – brutal, grisly unsolved murders of women – and blaming them on vampires. Thousands of old cases are brought to light from around the world. People are going crazy, bringing back all the ancient vampire myths and methods of protecting themselves. Mobs are killing suspected vampires. Not only that, witches are now also being hunted. Worldwide persecution has started a new Dark Age.
The media frenzy and public terror is endangering a secret, sophisticated, and very organized group of paranormal creatures who have stayed hidden for hundreds of years.
Their leader, Wolfgang Ulrich, a talented and powerful wizard, must find and exterminate Leon’s group to end the risk of being discovered
Leon is on the hunt. However, he doesn’t know he is also being hunted – by creatures who have powers as terrifying as his.
Only the most powerful will win. Will it be a new Dark Ages or a cleansed earth?
Here are some reviews from advance readers, all 5 stars.
A Great Read
This is a fun, lighthearted read. If you like vampires and you like pirates you’re going to love this one. And then they kick it up a notch and you’ll love it even more.
A Paranormal Thrill Ride!
If you are looking for an adventure in the palm of your hand this book is a MUST read. The authors take you to a paradise beyond belief, where just under the surface there lies centuries of struggle between good and evil. This book truly has it all, Mystery, Paranormal, Romance, and just enough insanity to make your mind spin! Very well written, with many twist and turns. This book pulls in you and keeps you there, so much that you just can’t put it down, you must know what happens to the characters next! This is one big emotional roller coaster.
You will get very attached to the characters and feel their ups and downs, to the point I even had sympathy for the villain! I really hope they intend to have more adventures with these characters because I am just not ready to let them go!
Packed with Story
This story is packed and I really mean packed with thrills, twists and layers. The writing is adventurous as you get to peek inside the paranormal heads and their prey as the story progresses. The story has it all. Lots of scary, lots of good stuff and lots of story.
Great Page-Turning Story
Leon’s Lair was a quick-paced read that kept me engaged. I like a book that I can’t put down because the story is exciting. I like that it included the paranormal. It was a modern love story with a paranormal twist. The writing was descriptive and fit the book well. At first I believed there would only be “Leon’s group of vampires”, but I was delighted to find other vampires and witches and it was great to see that Remy, herself, discovered she was a witch.
The love story between Jane and Peter was very realistic. Peter was the hero of this book, with a wealth of knowledge of how to get things done (who wouldn’t want a man like that). I also liked that it was set in present day, as that moved the story forward. I also loved Remy and Wolf.
This didn’t take long to read and it actually kept me up “past my bedtime” several nights because I wanted to discover what would happen next. I love stories like that. I was actually sad to have the book end. I feel this could be a “series” if fleshed out a little more for some other characters: Remy and Wolf and the Foundation of Paranormals.
I was privileged to have read this in advance, courtesy of the writers. THANK YOU! I look forward to reading other works.
What a ride!
I decided I needed a break from my usual reads that are Business and How-To books. I got in for an unusual ride to say the least. I’m no fan of vampire stories but I got sunk deep into the flow and frankly couldn’t put the book down. The introduction of each character is such that you feel instant friendliness or antipathy. These people are either good or bad. And I mean, real good or real bad. Each scenery is precisely depicted and I was right there living it. I almost felt sea-sick during the tornado and had to look at my arms a bit later to ensure I hadn’t caught any mosquito bites. The book starts a bit slow but soon picks up speed and lets you panting as numerous aspects of the story develop. Warning: unexpected twists will keep you turning the pages and miss bedtime.
