The Cain Letters by Pierre Roustan (Amy)

Jun 13, 2011

"The Cain Letters", by Pierre Roustan
Author:  Pierre Roustan
Publisher:  Eirelander Publishing (November 22, 2009)
Edition Reviewed:  eBook (Kindle Ed), 211 pages
ISBN: 1449569854
Genre: Urban Fantasy, Fiction, Paranormal

Alexandra Glade is a vampire hunter. She leads her team, the Berith Lochem, to keep the world protected from the the thrells and vampires. The thrells are more evil than the vampires because they are created by dead vampire blood. Alexandra, Kyan, and her crew uphold the laws with backing from the Vatican and Cardinal Felix.

Alexandra is driven by the memory of her parents death at the hands of a vampire. She vows to never let anyone suffer her pain. When college student, Marcus Brennan, discovers an ancient book revealing the origin of vampirism, all hell breaks loose not just in his life but for the world around him. Marcus is gifted the book by being "in the wrong place at the wrong time" and when two master vampires, Mason and Nikolas, find out, they will do everything they can to get their hands on that book. It is the weapon that will give them the power to rule not only the Vampire Nation but all mankind. What Marcus discovers in the book will lead Mason and Nikolas to their "father", the original vampire. They must kill him to gain all the strength and rule the mortals.

What the book will reveal is a shock not only to the vampire world, but to the Berith Lochem and religion in general. It is up to Alexandra Glade, the strong and determined vampire hunter, and her team, the Berith Lochem, to find Marcus, when he is kidnapped, and destroy the thrells and master vampires, in order to prevent the unthinkable… the awakening of Cain


MY THOUGHTS:
I really enjoyed this book! It was a refreshing change from the paranormal romance I have been reading lately. Alexandra is a strong female character with guts and gusto. She carries this book from page one through the end. There are undertones of a brewing romance with Kyan, her "right hand man", so to speak, but this you will have to use your imagination to get romance from this one! When the evil of Mason and Nikolas, and Breed, a nasty threll try to overcome her, Alexandra doesn't back down or give up. The story was very strong and action packed, but not overwhelming. With each page, I felt like I was right there fighting with Alexandra. If you are a paranormal/fantasy fan, especially if you don't like the heavy romance, I would highly recommend this book. I will warn you that this book does NOT contain any "Hollywood" vampires! These vampires are ruthless, nasty, and out for blood! I look forward to reading more from Pierre Roustan!

Sounds very good. You didn't mention so I'm asking, does this tie into the vampire/Caine theory?
