New Author Wynter Wilkins.....vampires

16 posts in this topic

here is a review of the new book Strigoi by Wynter Wilkens..

if you love reading about vampires this book is for you

Thank you VampireQueen. She had this to say about Strigoi.

I love reading vampire fiction. I am a huge Anne Rice fan and have felt a void in this type of fiction for many years. I found this book to be just what I was craving to fill that very need. From the beginning to the end I was taken on a journey as the plot twisted through the lives of these characters. There is a richness to the development of these characters which displays their human traits and is not afraid to show their flaws as well as their abundance of gifts. When I finished the book I instantly wanted more. I was beyond thrilled to learn that more books would be published by this author and cannot wait to see the continuation of this story. The blending of facts with her fiction writing mesmerized me. It was easy to identify with the characters which allowed my emotions to connect with the story as a whole in addition to the individual characters. I will actively be awaiting the second book in this series. If you love witches, vampires, stories that will make you question what is real and what is not, this series is for you. She has been able to demonstrate differences in "types" of vampires and gone one step further by showing how each persons own sense of morality can ultimately override the most basic of instincts for loyalty, for family, and even for love. Truly an excellent read for any fan of this genre!!! My last thoughts are give me more!

The support I've gotten not only from my UM friends but from others has been tremendous and I can't thank everyone enough. If everything goes as planned it is possible that by next year Book Two will be released. I wouldn't be surprised if some of my UM friends and family don't find their way into the series in one format or another....wonder if you will be able to identify them *cackles with a tip of my conical hat*

@Child of Bast...I will not nor can not speak for anyone other than myself. There is much that can be done creatively speaking with the iconic vampire. I personal find fascinating how many different myths there are from around the world about them. Immortality affords one a great deal of room to move a character through space and time. For someone fascinated by eras, this character can literally be from any time in history and move forward through time. I find it intriguing the questions they must be able to ponder and have the lifetimes to seek the answers. Ideals of spirituality, loyalty, love, hate, revenge, need, and even want plague their every day and night. The idea that they (when talking about the undead variety) exist so closely on a river of life that every human needs for survival. They do what some have at one point or another thought of, defy death.
