Rebel Vampires series by Rosemary A Johns

‘Your lips were close to mine. All I’d need to do was… You pulled back (of course you bloody did), even if you were still clutching onto me as if my body was yours. Because no matter what other nasties you might do with it, you’d never kiss your slave, would you? Then you suddenly hauled me closer, and we were snogging. At that moment, none of it meant anything. Slave or Mistress. First Lifer or Blood. It never does when skin meets skin.’ Blood Shackles

Blood Shackles Volume 2 Rebel Vampires by Rosemary A Johns

THREE OF THE MOST EXCITING FANTASY TRILOGIES…EVER!

Trilogies. There’s something about the structure of three books connected with the same characters, heroes and villains, world and theme, building to a thrilling climax that’s more satisfying than any other structure.

Each book can be standalone, so they can be read without the others. And the series can continue into further arcs of trilogies – each one building and building, like a volcano, with suspense

Tolkien’s famous trilogy was meant to be one – whopping – book. If he’d had his way.

My series Rebel Vampires is a trilogy – the third book Blood Renegades is out June 13th.

Unlike Tolkien Rebel Vampires was planned as the first arc trilogy in a longer series. The structure is built around this.

Three is itself a magical number to Light – the savant vampire and lead character.

Blood Dragons is about Light’s discovery of love. Blood Shackles builds to Light’s battle for family and the third..? Like the best trilogies, Blood Renegades is the climax. The dark before the light: the war, revelation and battle for home.

I love fantasy trilogies. Here are Three of the Most Exciting Fantasy Trilogies…Ever!

  1. His Dark Materials by Philip Pullman: An epic trilogy that spans Oxford to parallel universes and is a coming of age tale for two children: Lyra Belacqua and Will Parry. Perfect world building: both strange and familiar at the same time. Intelligent…but never forgetting the witches. 
  2. The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms by N.K. Jemisin: Beautiful and fascinating. Yeine, a young woman from a matriarchal warrior culture is called to the city of Sky, the ruling capital of the world, where she must fight to become heir in a society of humans and shackled gods.
  3. Rebel Vampires by Rosemary A Johns. A must-read for lovers of unique paranormal suspense, vampires and urban fantasy. The story of Light: the British vampire who is a lover, rebel and anti-hero. In a world where the humans act like the monsters, vampires are both predator and prey. Light must save the women he loves, his family, species and maybe even the world…

So what are your favourite fantasy trilogies?

PARANORMAL ROMANCE GUILD – Fantasy Review

Blood Dragons Rebel Vampires by Rosemary A Johns

“More than just a vampire story, it is a story of love…so beautiful” – Paranormal Romance Guild

Today the Paranormal Romance Guild reviewed Blood Dragons:

“It has been fifty years since Light and Kathy came together, and although she refused to be turned, he stayed with her, going from husband to her boy toy… Now he watches as she lays in bed with no memory of who he is and what their life together was like.

This book is Light’s story from the time Ruby came into his life and changed him, to the time in between when they hunted together without a care in the world, until Kathy changed him for good. He began to realize that first lifers were not that different from blood lifers, and that blood lifers were not the only monsters.”

WOMEN IN FANTASY – A Storytime Reading About a Red-haired Devil

Gender in fantasy – and women’s evolving role  – is a tricky but interesting subject. Things have come a long way from heroes in epic fantasies rescuing the princess.

Except, have they..?

In urban fantasy, there’s a divide between the human woman being controlled and ultimately sacrificing everything – even her life – for the paranormal male.

This was explored in my most recent panel on Twilight. There’s a reason my human woman chooses to grow old, rather than be elected into Blood Life in Rebel Vampires.

I’ve always wondered why stories focused on vampire males’ obsessions with teenagers…and never followed their lifelong – adult – loves.

It may be partly because an increasing number of paranormal books are Young Adult, so must have young protagonists.

The other side to urban fantasy..? The kick-ass heroine (look at the covers of the top 20 urban fantasy books). This in itself is a stereotype, especially when they don’t have equality but dominance over men.

Rebel Vampires

In Rebel Vampires I write from the British male vampire’s perspective. This meant I could write powerful women into the book but avoid the ‘kick-ass’…

Kathy is human but she’s never controlled by Light. She’s his equal and although he saves the world, she saves him.Blood Dragons (Rebel Vampires Volume One) Award-winning fantasy

Ruby is Light’s ‘red-haired devil, Author, muse, liberator, guide: my gorgeous nightmare.’ His Elizabethan Author, she’s savage, powerful and offers an all-consuming love.

This reading by K Kantis is taken from Blood Dragons. It’s a rare moment of vulnerability, when Ruby for the first time tells Light about her human life: the fear she has of being ‘caged‘ again, ironically means she cages all men, even though she’s desperate to set Light free.
