My Review of Oxford Blood
It was obvious from the beginning that someone who really knew what they were talking about wrote this novel about Oxford. I, personally, a huge fan of Paranormal and College kind of drama, loved it. I thought that Derwent exposed the book well, and would have really liked her to concentrate on just a few characters. However, it didn’t spoil the action, the suspense, the heart-pounding vampire drama.
The Cavaliers are a secret society that really gets away with murder… I had to stretch my mind and picture how this would happen. Nevertheless, I thought it was really cool how the sleuth and wondering of the heroine, Harriet, came across the pages and grabbed me!
Believe me when I saw I was 35% on my Kindle, I couldn’t put it down. I was fast reading pages just to see what happened next!
I loved this book. I am really looking forward to the next one. If you love vamps, bad-boys, mystery, and college, you will love this book!
For all this and much more, I give Oxford Blood by Author Georgiana Derwent a rousing 5 stars!
I was given this book for an unbiased review.
Synopsis Oxford Blood (The Cavaliers: Book One)
A Tale of the Posh, the Privileged and the Paranormal…
The Cavaliers are the most elite society at Oxford University – rich, powerful, and beautiful. No one realises that they are no ordinary students, but a group of aristocratic vampires from the English Civil War. For four hundred years they have groomed the most promising students to run the government, police, and finance in the way the vampires wish, granting them eternal life in return for absolute obedience.
When Harriet French arrives at Oxford University from her working class northern state school, she’s prepared for a culture shock, but not to become embroiled in the Cavaliers’ scheming and bloodlust. Harriet thought she’d be busy enough juggling her demanding tutor, new friends, and the murky world of student politics. But now, she must find the rebel vampire who is killing off the members, stop the Cavaliers from orchestrating a massacre of the year’s most beautiful and successful students, and defy the Society to be with the man of her dreams.
Oxford Blood is a British, adult, paranormal romance. It’s a tale with vampires that aren’t afraid to kill and a heroine who’s not afraid of sex or her own ambition.
Synopsis Screaming Spires (The Cavaliers: Book Two)
In her first year at Oxford University, Harriet French became inextricably tied to the Cavaliers, the university’s most elite society. Though its members are universally wealthy, charming and handsome, they have a darker side – they are deadly vampires who have been secretly running the country for the last four hundred years.
Now Harriet’s back at Oxford for her second year. Armed with a vampire boyfriend, some great friends, and the truth, she’s expecting an easier time. She’s wrong. Her best friend is now a vampire and the Cavalier who turned her to save her life is facing death for the one good deed he’s ever done. Just when it seems that things can’t get any worse, the Cavaliers’ ancient enemies decide to strike at the heart of the society and they’ve got Harriet in their sights.
Screaming Spires continues the story of an ancient vampire conspiracy and the ordinary girl caught in its web begun in Oxford Blood.
Georgiana Derwent is the author of the Cavaliers Trilogy: Oxford Blood, Screaming Spires and Ivory Terrors (to come).
Georgiana Derwent studied at Oxford University (as you might have guessed). Aside from the vampires, The Cavaliers is an exaggerated but fairly accurate portrayal of her time there. She now works in London and lives with her fiancé. He’s been very supportive throughout the writing of her books, mainly because he likes to claim that all the most attractive characters are based on him.
Georgiana fell in love with vampire novels after reading the Vampire Diaries back in 2000. At the time it was a struggle to find any similar paranormal romances, a situation that it’s fair to say seems to have been rectified in the last few years.
Ever since her teens, she wanted to write a vampire series. Ever since going to Oxford she wanted to write a book about her experiences there. During a dull few months between finishing university and starting her graduate job, she had the idea of combining the two and The Cavaliers was born.
