The Story of Lucius Cane: Book One by Vanya Ferreira


Kindle Edition, 27 pages
Published February 9th, 2016 by Vanya Ferreira

As you can see, this is only a very short story, so, luckily for you, this review will also be rather short.

~Goodreads Synopsis~

London, 1794. Lucius Cane, a peculiar sort of vampire, comes upon an opponent the likes of which he has never seen before – a brute with remarkable abilities. But not all is as it seems as their encounter unfolds in a manner that neither of them expected.”

~My Thoughts~

I was pleasantly surprised after reading the first couple of pages. The writing quality is really good. I could see it all happening very vividly. The characters, the surroundings: really well done!

I think Lucius Cane could be in myΒ top 20 of favourite antiheroes. I truly liked his character and he reminds me a little of the Marquis from Neil Gaiman’s Neverwhere. Except Lucius is a vampire, obviously.

Because this book is so short and ends with a cliffhanger, there’s not really much left for me to say about it. I can highly recommend reading it as an in-between kind of thing; it’s entertaining enough, especially if you’re into paranormal stories.

I would love to see a book two, three and four. Then, turned into a volume, I could most likely give it 4 brownies or even more. For now, I’m settling on a steady 3 brownies. A solid entertaining quick read.


A big thank you to Vanya Ferreira for providing me with a copy of his book in exchange for an honest review!
