Well have I got a treat for you today. I will be giving you my review of Vampires of Moscow by Caedis Knight aka Jacqueline Slyvester and N.J Simmonds.
Saskia de la Cruz is a Verity Witch – her only magic being that she can tell the truth from a lie.
As an investigative reporter for The Blood Web Chronicle, the biggest news outlet on the paranormal dark Blood Web, Saskia spends her days cracking twisted para cases hoping that someday, some case, will bring her closer to finding her missing sister.
In snowy Moscow drained corpses of illegal workers have begun to turn up, with hundreds more reported missing. When Saskia is sent on assignment to investigate an oligarch Vampire crime ring that might be behind the deaths, she plans to get in out of the city’s frozen grasp quickly…preferably with her neck intact.
But beautiful ballet dancer Konstantin Volkov and his wildcard brother Lukka complicate things. The vampire brothers have their own reasons for solving the string of murders, reasons that conflict with Saskia’s mission. Soon, Saskia finds herself enmeshed in the city’s glittering web of crime, passion, and violence, where truths and lies are one and the same.
I have read books by both of these authors and absolutely loved them so it came as no surprise that I wanted to jump straight on this train when I heard that they had partnered up to release a new series.
Vampires of Moscow is the first book and it does not disappoint. The main character Saskia is a fantastic soul. I loved her from the first moment. The way that this book is written completely sucks you in. You find yourself lost in a gritty underworld of paranormal magic and you crave more.
The pacing, storyline and characters make this one of my top 2020 reads. This isn’t just a fantasy read, this is a fantasy read with bite and blood.
I will be sharing my review of the Sirens of Los Angeles which is a novella from the same series next week.
