(About the book)
In a world of wizards and vampires a clever man may make a fortune. But hunting the undead is no small task, as Coragan the bounty hunter will soon find out. He will need all his wits and the help of his comrades to succeed this time. Together, they must pit themselves against a creature so old time itself bends knee, an ancient vampire by the name of Lucian val Drasmyr. Read Drasmyr, a dark fantasy novel by Matthew D. Ryan.
We vampires do not make easy prey. Our weaknesses are few, our strengths many. Fear is something we do not know, and death but a distant memory. So tread softly, pray to your god, and gird yourself with silver when the moons arise and night’s dark prince awakens. We fear not the wizard, nor the warrior, neither rogue, nor priest; our strength is timeless, drawn from darkness and we know no master save the hot lust of our unending hunger. We long for blood, your blood and no blade, nor spell, nor clever artifice, can keep us long from our prize. Feel our teeth at your throat, your life ebb from you, and know as darkness comes to claim you that the price of your folly is your everlasting soul.

This was defiantly different from what I normally read; I really liked reading about the darker side of vampires. The only reason this is not a 5 star is because sometimes it was a bit hard to follow, it would go back and forth between Coragan and Drasymr but the way it was done took a bit to get use to and confused me at first. But once you get used to it then it all falls into place.
Coragan is a bounty hunter, that’s always been his dream until he was not hunting bad people anymore it was hurting innocent people so he stopped. Or so he thought anyway, until he was offered a job to a investigate fire.
Drasymr is not you every day run of the mill vampire in Ya books. He is a vicious killer that will leave you watching you’re every step. This is a great read if you like horror books.
