BOOK REVIEW: Soul Stealers
Author: A Remic
Publisher: Angry Robots Books
Release Date: 2010
Available from www.booktopia.com.au
THE CLOCKWORK VAMPIRES THIRST FOR BLOOD-OIL. The land of Falanor has fallen. The renegade hero Kell is being hunted by the machine-vampires, the Vachine. On his way to recruit reinforcements to launch the counter-attack, the mighty hero finds himself the prey of two beautiful but deadly vampire assassins. Their bronze fangs are coming for him.
Just love the cover of this book.
Soul Stealers continues on right where the first book in this series, ‘Kell’s Legend’ ended. Right from the outset, Remic has added some new, surprising, and deadly abominations that live forcefully on the perimeter of sacrilege. There are still many mysteries to unfurl as characters you thought you knew acted as though they were someone else entirely. These mysteries, unanswered questions, and as well as the history of Falanor are exposed.
There is far more going on than the Vachine conquering Falanor for the blood-oil they require. Remic has created an original and dangerous world in Falanor, with some vivid scenery and interesting characters. I am hoping that there will be many more books in this series as the plot in exciting and the books are hard to put down.
