Liam has betrayed his sire, and now his sire is going to get revenge in the only way he knows how – through Liam’s love. But, when Liam’s ancestry comes into play, they realise that all might not be as lost as they initially thought.


I like the idea of a witch-born vampire. And that this ancestry is enough to overcome the change of vampirism. Actually, it’s the first vampire story I’ve had the pleasure of reading in which the change is reversed. And since it is a short story, this change occurs quite quickly. But it doesn’t feel forced and overbearing as it can in some short stories.

I like the weaving together of a bit of Irish folklore and witchcraft with vampirism. I haven’t read a good story that incorporates the two in quite a while. And it’s made me kind of desperate to get my hands on the first book in this series… self-control is a losing battle.

  1. Howdy! Quick question that’s completely off topic. Do you
    know how to make your site mobile friendly? My site looks weird when viewing from my iphone.
    I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to correct this issue.
    If you have any suggestions, please share. With thanks!


  2. When I selected the theme template, I had a look how it would look across platforms. (There is an option there for that). And I also try to keep my layouts fairly simple so that it can translate well across platforms. That’s all the advice I can give here. Sorry.
