FINALLY! A vampire-werewolf pairing I stand behind wholeheartedly! You find any sparkly, emo vampires or brooding, d-bag werewolves in Erdelac’s Red Sails. Here, the vampire runs the show and the werewolves keep the ship shipshape.
Attacked by the dreaded red-sailed pirate ship, Jan and Timoteo are taken aboard the ship. There, they are told the dreadful, horrific secret of The Trivia. The captain lives off blood, and the crew are rampaging werewolves one night a month. The two captives are to be let ashore a pacific island and, along with the natives, hunted by the werewolf crew.
Sampari, a feisty native woman, refuses to allow the werewolves to hunt her island once more. She stages a coup and takes over–with the two foreign captives and one other native as her only allies. Will they be able to hold off the werewolves and their vampiric master?
Again, Erdelac has amazed me with his awesome historical horror. I was completely enthralled by his first Damnation release, and I’m still impressed! Erdelac’s writing is powerful and captivating, and the story is over all too soon. His characters are engaging and you want to keep reading more about them.
I definitely recommend Red Sails!
