Review: The story of Lucius Cane by Vanya Ferreira

 Series: The story of Lucius Cane (Book 1)

Genre: Paranormal

Rating: 1/5 Stars

Cover: Little bit creepy.

Buy: Amazon

Trigger warnings: child abuse

Description: London, 1794. Lucius Cane, a peculiar sort of vampire, comes upon an opponent the likes of which he has never seen before – a brute with remarkable abilities. But not all is as it seems as their encounter unfolds in a manner that neither of them expected.

Review: This short story felt kinda unfinished. Or like a chunk ripped out of a bigger book and not only because of the cliffhanger. This story end right in the middle of something, which always feels like a lazy attempt to make people buy the next book to me. Plus there is something going on with Lucius, that gets no explanation.

Apart from this I was confused why the reader gets to read opponent’s whole life story. I thought it’s about Lucius? And a big no go for me: The opponent, Jack, is thankful for being abused as a child by his father. He’s stronger now because of this.

On a whole this story isn’t really something new, but at least the fighting scene was interesting.
