CLICK TO PURCHASE! A legend steeped in mystery and darkness, one that should have been left alone to oblivion except one person opens the door to this legend and unleashes something far more sinister than vampires.

When college student Marcus Brennan finds an ancient text detailing the origins of vampirism, he never expects that the world will go mad in a matter of days. It isn’t the fact that not one but two master vampires want it, not just to rule the vampire nation but all of mankind, that scares him but the fact that if they do get their hands on it, life as Marcus knows it is certainly gone in a poof of smoke. It is up to Alexandra Glade and her team of elite vampire hunters, the Berith Lochem, to keep him safe & to help Marcus stop the coming war because if not there are far worse things out there, like the coming of Cain.

OH MY GOD! This is one heart pounding story that will alternately scare the willies out of you and the next leave you flipping the pages to see what will happen next. I was blown away by the way this author wrote and drew the reader into his web, page by page. With the right amount of creepiness and paranormal, THE CAIN LETTERS, delivers one of those wild rides that leaves you gasping. This is a “new to me” author and one that really knows how to keep the reader on teeter hooks through-out the storyline. Can Marcus stay alive to stop the vampires from getting their hands on the ancient text or will it all be lost when Cain roams free?

Marcus Brennan is a college student who finds this ancient book detailing the birth and secrets of vampirism. What he finally realizes is that: One-vampires are alive and two: they really, really want this book-enough to kill him for it. It is up to vampire hunter Alexandra Glade and her crack team to keep Marcus alive and help defeat the vampires because the outcome if they get their hands on it is worse than they can imagine. All I can say is these characters are so fascinating and life-like; it felt like they were right beside me telling me a ghost story in front of a fire on a dark night. This is an author who really knows how to get into his characters head and showcase their good and bad qualities in perfect symmetry. There were some wonderful secondary characters that intrigued me and the fast paced storyline kept me enthralled till the very end.

THE CAIN LETTERS is a wonderful story that will surely keep you on the edge of your seat till the very end. With the right amount of horror, dark fantasy and a new twist on the legend of vampires, Pierre Roustan delivers a story that will leave you breathless and clamoring for more. If you enjoy a darker story on vampires, then run, don’t walk, to grab THE CAIN LETTERS and settle in for pure entertainment. I am eager to see if this author writes a sequel to THE CAIN LETTERS in the future.

This is an objective review and not an endorsement of this book.
