Vampire by Kevin Ashman, #Book Reviews

This is an amazing book, it is the first Ashman novel I have read but I will definitely be reading more.

It follows two timelines; 1. ancient Egypt 3,000 years ago, which is obviously very well researched, and 2. present day England and Egypt.

It has the historical and contemporary periods alternating, with a clear plot for each which combine beautifully as you progress through the novel.

You will find it hard to put this book down once you begin reading.

The characters, both historical and modern, are extremely well written ranging from Egyptian kings and goddesses, to archaeologists and museum curators, to scientists and Goths, and vampires and zombies.  These form a wealth of characters to captivate the imagination of almost every reader.

This novel includes some interesting ethical dilemmas as well as an engaging plot.  This is not my usual choice of genre but Kevin Ashman may just have converted me.

Excellent. 5 stars.

Available from Smashwords and Amazon.
