Russia 1812. It began as a last stand against Napoleon’s invading army. It would end as a fight against an enemy of mankind itself…..
..The voordalak-a creature of legend, the tales of which have terrified Russian children for generations. But for Captain Alesksei Ivanovich Danilov-a child of more enlightened times- it is a legend that has long been forgotten. Besides, in the autumn of 1812, he faces a more tangible enemy: the Grande Armee of Napoleon Bonaparte.
City after city has fallen to the advancing French, and it now seems that only a miracle will keep them from Moscow itself. In desperation, Aleksi and his comrades enlist the help of the Oprichiniki-a group of twelve mercenaries from the furthest reaches of Christian Europe, who claims that they can turn the tide of the war.
Full of historical detail, thrilling action, and heart- stopping supernatural moments, Twelve is a story at its most original and exciting.
This is a book that has brought the violent, strong, and warring vampire back to the world. It is a great kick back to traditional violent vampires who do what vampires do best. Not to sound sexist but it is a great vampire book for the male reader. It may actually revive the vampire genre for the male readers in a time when we are surrounded with the female romantic novels. It is a true historical supernatural novel that is true to the vampire.
Twelve can be purchased at Amazon.com as well as at the Hamburg Barnes and Noble and Lexington Green Joseph Beth’s Book Sellers.
