Add to Goodreads
Best-selling author Lucille Moncrief takes us back to the beginning of time, where gods and mortals lived together in a perpetual summer. In this riveting prequel to Moncrief’s timeless and dark Nefarious series, we learn the origins of the Great War between the Scion Hive vampires and the Alpine Manticore witches.
High Priestess Drusilla journeys into the terrifying underworld of her vampire brother, The Great King Abaddon to free her lover Egino from the clutches of the vampire horde. Will she succeed in rescuing Egino before the darkness destroys her magic forever?
Beautifully written, I am Drusilla is an enigmatic work reminiscent of Dante’s Inferno and Le Fanu’s masterpieces. Follow the heroine Drusilla in a tale that bridges the magic of literature with an innovative new take on classic vampire mythology.
What I thought
I was very kindly gifted a copy of this short story by the author for my honest opinion. All thoughts and opinions are mine and mine alone.
This is a prequel to the authors Nefarious Series. With that said I went into this story knowing nothing since I had not read the other books. So I did feel a little lost at first. I liked this take on vampires and it explains a little of how they came to be. I enjoyed how mythology was weaved into this story and it makes me think that I would really enjoy picking up this series. Sorry, this is such a short one but this story was only 23 pages and if you like stories what twist vampire lore some you will really like this.
