Vampires of the Scarlet Order
Book 1 By Author David Lee Summers
Soldiers of fortune and seekers of acceptance is the way I would describe the first book, Vampires of the Scarlet Order by Award Winning Author David Lee Summers.
The novel opens with an introduction to a young man wanting to obtain revenge and suffering from extreme loneliness. In the High Middle Ages, he meets Lord Draco, and is recruited to the Scarlet Order vampire mercenaries.
I was entranced with the history. I felt like I was there. Fear and honor ran through my fingertips as I read. It was strange, but the alliance with the Church, seemed to almost make sense. A great character and somewhat sad, Lord Draco endeared himself to my soul.
Quickly, I was whisked away from the Middle Ages to the Wild, Wild West in the United States. I felt like the shift happened flawlessly. The real life characters were written so well, that I thought I was actually getting an eyewitness encounter with Billy the Kid!
Then to Modern Times we come to more characters which emerge and captured my attention. I loved the way Mr. Summers does not “villainize” the vampires. He makes me want to cheer for them and cry for their loneliness and heartbreaks.
Vampires of the Scarlet Order took me on a wild ride from year to year and century to century. I absolutely became enthralled with the characters. Desmond, Lord Draco being my favorite! Even if you are not a fan of Paranormal, this novel should be on your list.
What got me is that even after reading it, I’m still wondering about the Vampires of the Scarlet Order. I love the cover too, it seems to leap at me!
For this, and so much more, I will have to rate this novel as FIVE STARS and must read for all!
Vampires of the Scarlet Order:
Vampires of the Scarlet Order is an action-adventure novel about an elite cadre of vampire mercenaries who have worked throughout history as pinpoint assassins. Under the command of Desmond, Lord Draco, the Scarlet Order worked for the Spanish Inquisition, Napoleon, and helped to defeat the Ottoman Empire. Now, at the dawn of the 21st century, vampires are too expensive, too untrustworthy, and frankly, too passé for governments to employ any longer. Nanotechnology can be employed to engineer more reliable super soldiers. What’s a vampire got to do for job security?
