Stone Masters: A Vampire's Reckoning by VMK Fewings
( From back cover )
" What if your family held an ancient, dark secret? A secret passed down from one generation to the next. A secret that would change everything you thought you knew.
What if the time had come to finally reveal that very secret... to you?
Lord Jadeon Artimas, heir to St. Micheal's Mount in Cornwall, discovers that his family belongs, and has for centuries, to a clandestine group known as the Stone Masters; a collection of brave men whose sole, sacred duty is to kill the mythical creatures of the night, the deadly menace known as... vampires.
Jadeon soon becomes entwined with the underworld and is forced to face his deepest, darkest fears and make it through a journey of seduction, honor, and betrayal. As the sinister truth is unraveled, the foundation of a legacy is shaken to it's core, putting the very existence of the Stone Masters in jeopardy.
Only by accepting his family's history can Jadeon confront the danger, solve the mystery, and truly become a Stone Master."
This book was a fascinating read! VMK Fewings has written a vampire novel that sweeps you into the world of the Stone Masters, and takes on epic proportions. The Vampires all have very human motivations and emotions, and even the corrupt vampires had my sympathy.
This story is told in the first-person, but switches view-point between the two main characters, and the author masters it in such a way as to keep you caught up in the story every step of the way. Part One is written as a historical count of the life of Jadeon and how he comes into this legacy. Beautifully written. Part Two spans a couple hundred years and brings us to contemporary times seamlessly.
The story is captivating and a fresh take on the Vampire lore, told by a master of her craft. This is a great read for any fans of secret societies and vampires! I highly recommend Stone Masters: A Vampire's Reckoning.
