A male vampire slid into view between the trees and reached for Simon. Then the creature's head suddenly parted from his shoulders.
A booted foot shoved the decapitated carcass into the dirt.
A man stood over Simon. He was tall and thin, and his face was covered by a headwrap similar to that worn by the high desert Bedouins. Over his eyes he wore smoked, dark glasses. His clothing was dark grey, almost black, a short military jacket and calvary pants with a red stripe, and knee-high, black riding boots. Over it all he wore a long cloak with the hood thrown back. He had a gun belt with two holstered pistols. In his left hand was a basket-hilted longsword; in his right was a well-blooded scimitar.
The man bounded toward the female vampire. " Take the boy and RUN." Adele realized the mysterious swordsman was shouting at her. She scrambled to her feet and ran to her prone brother, already hearing the ringing of steel against claws. The stranger in grey seemed eerily familiar, Inexplicably, she was afraid for him and afraid of him at the same time.
I love the Vampire Empire series. Steampunk is a new genre for me, but you throw in Steampunk with a good dose of vampires and I'm smitten. Adele and The Greyfriar have a slow burning heat that is sweet and hot at the same time. LOVE THIS SERIES......
