Name: Vampiris Sancti: The Elf
Rating: 4.7 stars over 10 reviews
Description: Elves have mastered four elements that ensure their survival in the harshest of environments; they lie exceptionally well, their preference for the unexpected is constant, they can often hide in plain sight, and if worse comes to worse they can seduce their way into safety. Zyre is no exception as she uses all her magical abilities to escape being stalked by a dangerous demon prince.
The universe a magical elf Zyre is from co-exists with both the human and demon worlds, only reached by a doorway called the Reveal. A doorway she is forced to use to escape an arranged marriage. What should have been nothing more than the lark of stealing chocolate in the human world instead has her making pacts with Vampires as she challenges the entire Empire. The local prince thinks he can handle both Zyre and the plots of a bandit, but then again trust a demon to believe they are the most dangerous creature around.
Her foray into this new world has her in the midst of strange political factions, bandits, and Vampire schemes while attempting to protect the vulnerable humans. The unrelenting pursuit of her by an obsessed demon brings the world to the brink of invasion by demon Raiders led by his scorned bride. As Zyre faces the actuality of power within the universe while she struggles with the notion of friendship, loyalty, the reality of her world, the choice of whether to pursue the dangerous decision of revenge, or give into the obsessive love of another.
Reviews: "Not only does [Cardew] lay a solid foundation, she does it beautifully. Her concepts are smooth, her transitions are smooth, and her dialogue is extremely fresh. Cardew not only brings originality and genuine writing talent to this genre, but she elevates the premise of thought, so that we actually have philosophical nourishment along the way. I loved it."
