Review: The Cries of Vampira by Sean H. Robertson
The Cries Of Vampira: The Horror Of Gaad Grey, The Evil Alpha Werewolf - Volume 1
by Sean H. Robertson
CreateSpace (2010), Paperback, 82 pages
The Cries of Vampira is a fantasy story set in Scotland in the twelfth century, and concerns two clans fighting each other: the Robertsons, who lived at the Dunalastair Castle, Royal vampire homeland Vampira and a secret werewolf horde: the Grey Wolves.
The narration’s style is simple, for instance in each dialog the name of the character is always recalled. This kind of narration reminds of fairy tales for children.
The title could get confusion in the readers because The Cries of Vampira is not a vampire story, where usually vampires bite humans.
In this story many roles are inverted: vampires are good people living among humans and sometimes they have saved humans.
The Cries of Vampira improves through the narration, so hopefully book two could earn more than three stars.
