99 cents! The House on Blackstone Moor
The book that kicked off the Blackstone Vampires Series! Knock if you dare, they'll let you in. But once you're there, you might never leave!
The horror is relentless, the tale is dark because evil is. It always was. Rose Baines found out the day she discovered her mad, incestuous father murdered her family. Evil found a way in, you see, but then again it had come in even before.
The horrific discovery causes her to be incarcerated in two madhouses. Doctor Bannion, superintendent of Marsh Asylum, helps his favorite patient obtain a position as governess at Blackstone House, but why is he so adamant? The house, her charges tell her, is built on haunted moorland. Nothing is as it seems for Blackstone House, and its inhabitants have hideous secrets; the greatest secret of all is that of the blood.
Amid the unimaginable horror there is love - which comes at a terrible price.
The House on Blackstone Moor is a sure pick for fans of gothic horror novels and darkest vampire romance.
Excerpt from the novel:
Yes, dread and fear are different. Dread is beyond fear, I think. Dread knows fear was correct in the first place, and it just intends to sit and wait for the worst to happen, which will happen because dread, if nothing else, is sure of itself.
So what did I dread? The answer is a great many things, but mostly I dreaded the future.
Emotional pain is worse than physical pain, I believe. No part of my body hurt, yet I was suffering more than I ever had in my life. Here I was, barely seventeen and without family.
