BBB 4-Star Review Excerpt: The Zombies of Mesmer is an interesting take on a teen being a vampire hunter. I love that it takes place in Victorian London and O.M. Grey has used some great imagination coming up with cool gadgets thru-out her story. Nickie has to do some maturing pretty quickly, and it’s nice to see that she doesn’t ignore her friends just because she is changing.
Book Summary: Nickie Nick’s broken heart keeps her from her sacred duty until a tragic event pulls her out of her lament and propels her into action. The Clan of Ashen, a deadly vampire cult, and a group of lost souls lead her to discover the deranged actions of a sinister priest. A handsome, masked stranger captures her attention and her heart while they work to stop the priest and free the trapped ghosts. This paranormal adventure is sure to appeal to fans of Twilight, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and The Vampire Diaries.
The Ghosts of Southwark follows the continuing adventures of Nickie Nick, Vampire Hunter, and is set in Victorian Steampunk London.
BBB 3.5 Star Review Excerpt: O. M. Grey has given us another good Nickie Nick story with The Ghosts of Southwark. She lets us feel the pain that Nickie is going through, and then gives us the anger to make it another day. The mystery left me guessing what would happen and I felt invested in the characters. I wanted Nickie to finally be happy. The only thing I could not relate to very well was all the angst Nickie feels. It has been a long time since I was a teenager, but sometimes I wanted to reach into the book and shake her a little bit.
Book Summary: Arthur Tudor, a vampire for nearly four-hundred years, finds himself bored with life and love, yet again. His tolerance for his newly-turned girlfriend Avalon wanes, and he’s on the prowl for fresh blood to drink and succulent flesh to pierce. While investigating a series of mysterious disappearances, the couple comes face to face with Constance, a succubus committed to exacting justice for violated women. The supernatural trio joins forces to stop a serial rapist and murderer. Set in Victorian London, this Steampunk horror novel is about justice, retribution, and redemption.
Let true justice prevail…
BBB 4-Star Review Excerpt: O. M. Grey really slapped me in the face with the horrible treatment of women in this one. I know women are abused today, and it was much worse in Victorian days. The story was a good one and kept me guessing on how it would end.
