Vampires of Moscow was published in October 2020. In this paranormal romance suspense ebook (18+), Saskia, a reporter for The Blood Web Chronicle, will do whatever it takes to find her story, including getting close to the Russian vampires, Konstantin and Lukka. In a world where the paranormal community remains hidden and wild, the chronicle publishes exposé to help govern the ungoverned, to protect those victimized, and for Saskia to find her missing sister.
The book is steamy, the protagonist, Saskia, is curious and self-reliant, she uses those characteristics to pursue her story, no matter where it leads her.
The authors do not pull any punches with Saskia’s personality, her smutty sarcastic nature starts on page one. There was no doubt what to expect in the book: a lot of steam. Saskia follows the drained corpses to a dance and sex club in Russia, the Black Rabbit.
There is also a light exposure of undocumented workers and the dangerous world they navigate in hopes to make enough money to move back home. They handled it with a light touch, but exposed how much risk undocumented workers have in the normal and paranormal world.
I could feel the manic movement within the criminal underground in Russia. It brought the characters to life and brought understanding to the more deplorable characters in the book.
I travel through books and have had limited experiences in Russia, it was interesting to travel to the top and bottom tiers of fictitious Russia. The pace of the book was fast, the story dark and graphic. While the story did not make me want to travel to Russia, it was interesting to explore in the book.
They opened the doors in this book. The book includes descriptions of torture, child abuse, and death.
If you like books that move quickly, are a bit naughty with added darkness, then this series is for you. There is a prequel novella already available, and Book 2, Witches of Barcelona came out earlier this year. You can find the Caedis Knight website here.
