About the book: In the Godforsaken badlands of Transylvania the fragile truce between mankind and monsters is about to explode… When bounty hunters target one of 19th century Europe’s most feared vampire clans, the last place any lawman wants to be is caught in the middle…But for Anton Yoska, Lord Marshal of the Imperial lands south of the Carpathian Mountains, fate has trapped him in a supernatural stand-off that can end only in a bloodbath. A gang of mercenaries led by Anton’s former army comrade Milosh Drubrick have captured vampire aristocrat Stefan Modjeski, wanted for a string of frenzied murders, and have come to Anton to claim the reward. And as Stefan’s predatory undead kin lay siege to the jailhouse, Anton is faced with an agonising choice – hand over his prisoner and abandon the bounty hunters to their unspeakable fate, or stand and fight. The jailhouse defenders are outnumbered and out of options. It’s a battle that can’t be won, certain slaughter for them all, and Anton can’t trust his scheming allies. But Lord Marshal Yoska isn’t about to surrender. For he’s an experienced vampire hunter, a dangerous man when cornered, and a single minded warrior who knows there are worse things to fear than death…

My thoughts:

For far too long vampire books have been dominated by twinkly emo teenage stories or paranormal romances it’s easy to forget that they were originally bloodthirsty killers hell bent on destroying humanity. Thank heavens then for Crimson Siege for reminding us. 

Set in the late 1800’s bounty hunter Milosh has captured vampire Prince, Stefan and has taken him to the distant outpost town run by Anton Yoska, the only man to have survived the slaughter of his regiment in the vampire wars. Stefan’s mother wants him back and is prepared to start another war to do so. It’s brutal and bloody and I really enjoyed it. No one can be trusted, even Yoska as he’s hiding one of the biggest secrets of all. 

The action starts from the very first page and doesn’t let up until the end. It sucks you in from the start and is a real page turner.  It’s full of twists and turns,  people betraying each other and lots of blood. Excellent read and ‘m looking forward to reading the next book.
