Welcome to one of my own reviews for the books that reside in a very special place. My TBR is a treasure trove of books that I have bought or have received as gifts for birthdays and Christmas. I no longer wish for things to dust or to wear, and a book brings many hours of pleasure, several times over as they are never discarded.
This week I read Vampyrie: Origin of the Vampire by Tina Frisco in print version. The book traveled a long way to reach me via California, Toronto, England and then to Ireland. A wonderful gift and all the more treasured for being signed by the author.
About Vampyrie: Origin of the Vampire
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?
