Absolution: The Vampire Alliance Book One - Released 8th December 2013
Eve Blakethorn can barely remember what it was like to be unaware of the vampire world around her. Many years have passed since she met the stranger, the man who saved her life, gave her the world and promised her immortality. Unfortunately for Eve someone in power had not wanted her to have the world. Within days of her marriage her life is shattered. Everyone Eve cares for, vampire and human, is taken from her and she is left alone to fend for herself in a world she neither understands nor fits into. How can she hope to survive her dark and lonely existence while still plagued by the horrors she witnessed when her husband died? How can she avoid becoming prey to the monster that stalks her footsteps, the devil she has long suspected to be the one who brought about her husband’s downfall?
Desperation drives her every move, leading her into the darkness where monsters wait. Can Eve discover the truth about how her world came to crumble and who was really responsible? Is there another stranger out there capable of bringing her some sense of peace? And just what is the vampire government, The Senate, hiding in the dark tunnels under the city?
Praise for Absolution*:
"I enjoyed every chapter haven't stayed up so late for a book in so long I just couldn't put my phone down. Great book.”
“Wow! It's a nice change to read something in the vampire category with a more mature storyline. Your story was interesting and had me captivated from the beginning until the end. It was beautifully written, and falling in love with with the characters was easy. Great job absolutely loved it!”
“I have thoroughly enjoyed this book! I think this has been one of the most original, mature vampire stories I have ever read... The lives of your vampires are fully realised, their abilities are believable, and the twists in your story are sublime.”
"Every so often a vampire story comes along that changes the entire genre, and is unfortunately then endlessly copied. This happened with Polidori, le Fanu, Stoker, Rice, Whedon and most recently Meyer. I was looking for that elusive new vampire story with originality when I came across Absolution by Angela McGurk, and it is every bit as groundbreaking as the stories of those writers I mentioned.
This story follows what it's like to be a human who was loved by a vampire, a vampire betrayed and executed by their leaders, who is now trying to survive in their world as best she can by doing anything she can. I won't lie to you, this is for mature audiences and some of the things our heroine, Eve, has to do is not for the faint-hearted. But she is no victim! She takes everything thrown at her and comes back fighting each and every time.
So if you like original vampire stories with strong and feisty heroines, a good deal of historically accuracy as it shows the decisions Eve's husband made during the First World War that led him to his fate, and the intriguing politics of a vampire society hidden behind ours then this is the book for you"
