Summary

Winner of the 2017 Summer Indie Book Award for best New Adult

From the Author of The Portal Prophecies books, comes the anticipated new series: Tomoiya’s Story.

This series is the perfect addition to any Vampire fan’s collection.

Space travel. To some it is an advancement; a way to meet new races, learn new traditions; explore new cultures – a chance to expand the mind with knowledge of the unknown. To others, it is nothing more than a new outlet of resources to exploit and destroy. To the naive and trusting it is a recipe for disaster. The question of whether or not venturing into the realm of the stars is worthwhile, is a topic that will be argued for generations to come.

The Universe – vast and never ending. It recycles within itself. What happened before comes full circle and occurs again. Some call it fate – others destiny.

Two different ages – Two vampire princesses.

Two stories – one written in a book – the other about to begin.

Escape To Darkness tells the tale of Allaynie, a vampire whose tears are worth a fortune. A chance meeting on her wedding day changes her whole existence.
and
Woden, a man to whom greed is merely good business. Hunting is his trade. He’ll do anything to collect her unique tears for profit, even chase her into darkness.

This novella explores an alternate explanation for the myths and legends that surround modern day Vampires and can be read as a stand alone story.

 

 

My review

5/5 Stars

This is perhaps the most interesting vampire story I’ve read this year. The tale of Allaynie, a Golden Vampire captured by hunters for her ability to cry valuable gems, offers a “history” of sorts to the legends and myths of vampires and monsters that people hear today. Suspenseful and realistic in its detail, this is a must read for all vampire fans!
