GIVEAWAY! ARC of The Kingmakers (Vampire Empire #3) by Clay and Susan Griffith

If you read my blog much, you'll know that I am a big vampire fan. Young vampires, old vampires, fat vampires, thin vampires, girl vampires, boy vampires, sparkly vampires, dull vampires. I love them all.

I was thrilled to discover Clay and Susan Griffith's Vampire Empire series last year. It is one of the best - perhaps the best - vampire series I have ever read. These vampires are truly terrifying creatures yet with also very human in their politics, social structure, power-seeking, and even their capacity to love. The Vampire Empire series features one of the best romantic pairings: Adele the Equatorian Princess and The Greyfriar, the great vampire hunter. The series features a very strong female protagonist, complex politics, great fight scenes, elemental magic, and of course lots of vampires. I can't recommend it enough!

Check out my reviews of the first two books:

Review of The Greyfriar

Review of The Rift Walker

The Kingmakers, the final book in the trilogy will be released in September. I've already read it and I can tell you that it is just as wonderful as the previous two books.

The Kingmakers by Clay and Susan Griffith

Release Date:
September 4, 2012
Publisher: Pyr

Summary

A war to the death.

Empress Adele has launched a grand crusade against the vampire clans of the north. Prince Gareth, the vampire lord of Scotland, serves the Equatorian cause, fighting in the bloody trenches of France in his guise as the dashing Greyfriar. But the human armies are pinned down, battered by harsh weather and merciless attacks from vampire packs.

To even the odds, Adele unleashes the power of her geomancy, a fearsome weapon capable of slaughtering vampires in vast numbers. However, the power she expends threatens her own life even as she questions the morality of such a weapon.

As the war turns ever bloodier and Adele is threatened by betrayal, Gareth faces a terrible choice. Their only hope is a desperate strike against the lord of the vampire clans – Gareth’s brother, Cesare. It is a gamble that could win the war or signal the final days of the Greyfriar.

The Vampire Empire trilogy rushes to a heart-wrenching conclusion of honor and love, hatred and vengeance, sacrifice and loss.

  12. Since I've already been to Europe, I think I'd want to visit Africa. Not sure where in Africa, but I know there are a lot of beautiful places to visit there.

    I love vampires too! All types. So thanks so much for this giveaway!

  14. There are several countries I would love to visit. Scotland, Ireland, England and Italy. I love the history and culture of these countries. How people lived ages ago - it's all interesting to me.

  15. I have already been to a few countries in Europe, so I'd have to say Africa for sure. I would love to go to Egypt, though I don't know how things are going there right now, so either there or Nigeria, because I have a friend who lives there.

  16. I wouldn't be able to pick just one. I would want to see the whole country! I don't think I'd go to Africa though unless it was to go on a safari! Thanks for the giveaway!! :)

  18. Morocco, England and Ireland are countries I'd love to visit in that part of the world. France and Italy, too.

    I've read the first 2 books in this series, but didn't like book 2 as much as I was hoping. I do hope book 3 is better, though!
