SHADOWS IN THE DUST
Young Jazlo Kipling is studying to be a priest when his friends ask him
to join the war against the undead. Though he longs for excitement,
he’s undecided. Jazlo doesn’t want to disappoint Father Mathis, who has
been a father to him since he plucked him from the streets at seven
years old. Yet he joins the war and faces horrors he never thought he’d
see in his lifetime.
Commander Barrobos Divalsky has been a rebel fighter for
years. He lost his arm in a battle against Marcus Ravenholt, an ancient
vampire, who wants to wipe out all of humanity to replace them with his
minions. Barrobos knows his enemy well and others would do well to
follow him, but there are those in the ranks that can’t be trusted.
Shadows in the Dust is an epic battle between good and evil.
Mankind is on the brink of extinction unless a faithful few can turn
the tide of the wicked as it washes toward them. Barrobos and Jazlo are
well-developed characters fighting their own inner demons while going
to battle against something malevolent and seemingly unbeatable.
Barrobos’s manner of speaking was a bit distracting, though. And Marcus
doesn’t seem to know what he wants. One minute, he’s pure evil and
ready to destroy them all, and the next he’s on the brink of despair
and ready to give up.
Those who love a good battle against vampires and wolves and
zombies, controlled by a vampire, will love Shadows in the Dust. The
battle scenes are pure adrenaline, great for entertainment on a slow
weekend afternoon when it’s too cold to go outside. Filled with a
little magic and creatures found in the bowels of the vampire’s castle,
this book will keep you captivated to the end.
