Author Tina Frisco is running her first FREE book promotion on her intriguing book Vampyrie. I’m currently reading this beautifully written and engrossing book and will be reviewing when I’m finished. But I can say that I’m enjoying every word and every turn this book takes, and look forward to every time I get to pick up the book to read more.
Vampyrie is not what one would expect when first looking at this book, as I did. As many of my author friends, especially horror writers, know about me, I’m a big suck and scaredy cat. I do not read in those genres. When I apologized to Tina, telling her I wouldn’t be able to read her book and why, she explained the concept of the book to me, telling me it’s not your typical vampire story with scary blood-sucking, graphic content. I was instantly intrigued to read it. Below is the blurb which will explain the concept of the book.
Get yourself a copy of this book while it’s free and after you’ve read it, let me know if you think it’s a dramatic spin on what we instinctively think a vampire story would deliver.
FREE book promotion from July 28th – August 1st
What if vampires were not the undead, but rather the dying? What if there were two factions among vampires: the sustained and the unsustainable? And what if those factions were at war with one another over the life of a young woman who promised them a future? Vampyrie brings the myth of the vampire into the realm of possibility.
Phoebe Angelina Delaney is a reluctant genius and compassionate hothead. She finds herself in a pitch-dark underground and doesn’t remember how she got there. Did she drink too much alcohol and wander off in a stupor, or was she kidnapped by a malicious element determined to make her life a living hell?
Sir Michael Alan David is a vampire – an enigma, charismatic and mysterious, who weaves in and out of Phoebe’s life. Does he intend to use his title as a ruse to draw her closer to an unearthly fate, or is he a cloak-and-dagger knight in shining armor?
Too many secrets have been kept for too long. Phoebe must unravel the mystery in order to survive. Two major characters from the author’s first novel, Plateau, join forces with Phoebe to battle the demons in Vampyrie.
From the Author
One day during my morning walk, the word Valkyrie came to mind. As many of you know, a valkyrie is one of a host of female helping spirits of the god Odin in Norse mythology. Depicted as both loving and bloodthirsty, valkyries decide who lives and who dies in battle. They also assist Odin in transporting his favorites among the slain to Valhalla, the hall where he houses the dead whom he deems worthy of dwelling with him. In my novel, Valkyrie becomes Vampyrie and Valhalla becomes the Haven.
5 Star Review
Author Tina Frisco offers a compelling and realistic view of the origin of vampires. The characters in Vampyrie are believable, although their penchant for keeping secrets delivers the story slowly, like the peeling of an onion, but with good results. The inexorable development of the heroine, Phoebe, is satisfying to see as she comes to grips with her past and her true identity.
This is not your average horror-genre vampire story, complete with bloody fangs, but a scientific, what-if story that is guaranteed to draw the reader into its paranormal plot with a sci-fi twist. Frisco’s writing is on-point, snappy and consistent. This is a page turner that will hold a reader’s interest for hours! What the “Twilight” series did for paranormal romance in the world of vampires, Vampyrie does with a realistic, medical explanation for the origin of the vampire.
