Empire of the Vampire – Illustrated Special Edition:
‘A gothic bloodbath that will leave any reader breathless. The story is a vast apocalyptic canvass, reminiscent of Justin Cronin’s THE PASSAGE or even Stephen King’s THE STAND, yet Kristoff’s work stands on its own ruthless merit as the opening gambit of a richer tale yet to unfold. I can’t wait to return again to this rich, lush, and bloody world. Until then, read this book now!’
― James Rollins, No.1 NEW YORK TIMES author of THE LAST ODYSSEY and THE STARLESS CROWN
‘A fine crafted tale, the pieces as meticulously interlocked as fine woodwork. A chilling new take on vampire lore and those who must battle that darkness. EMPIRE OF THE VAMPIRE looks fearlessly at how ruthless Good must become when confronted with unrelenting Evil’
― Robin Hobb, SUNDAY TIMES and NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author
‘Brilliant and unputdownable, with tenderness and light bound into the bitter dark of a grim and fascinating world’
― Laini Taylor, NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author of STRANGE THE DREAMER
‘This book is bloody brilliant’
― V.E Schwab, NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author of THE INVISIBLE LIFE OF ADDIE LARUE
