Product Description

Product Description

"A novel of ancient legends, vampires and the imagination"

Set in Ancient Greece, a time when the spirit world of gods and goddesses and other immortal beings bleeds into the world of mortals, Frozen in Time is a rich vampire tale of betrayal and revenge, and the eternal longing for blood and love.

After the death of his wife in childbirth, Philip, grief stricken and suicidal, joins the army of his half brother Alexander, with whom he has a very uneasy relationship. But the world of immortals has other plans for him and the vampiric monster Scylla plays on his grief by seducing him in the form of his dead wife.

Horrified when he discovers that he too is now an immortal blood drinker, it becomes his life’s quest to escape Scylla, find a way of destroying her forever and to hopefully reunite himself with his dead wife's soul in a one way or another.

**Updated version**

The complete trilogy is now available:
Bound by Death (Blood of the Gods, Book 2)
Poet's Blood (Blood of the Gods, Book 3)

5.0 out of 5 stars A vampire story with a difference! 30 Dec 2011
By Angel A
Format:Kindle Edition
FROZEN IN TIME

First, let me say that I totally loved this book! Right from the very first chapter it gripped me and I really couldn't put it down.

I don't think there are many novels about vampires set in ancient Greece. And, since I have a very keen interest in those times, I really wanted to read this. Having already read this author's other novel, Age of Dreams, and loving her writing style and that novel, I couldn't wait to get reading.

The well-written and intriguing prologue sets the tone for what the reader has in store in this great novel. The opening tells us that Philip is a soldier in Alexander the Great's army and that he is already tired of war. He is obviously grieving for a lost love, and in his highly intoxicated state (due to Alexander's generous offerings of wine for his army), Philip is seduced by an evil vampire (Scylla) who is disguised as his dead wife Amaranthea. She makes him a vampire and then it's instant action and it's straight into chapter one, which takes us back to how Philip and Amaranthea's relationship, and how Scylla enters their life.

The characters were really well-drawn and I liked the little flashback scenes that told me a little about each character. I found that these were done with great success and did not interfere with the story at all. It helped me sympathise with the characters more, even the villain of the piece - Scylla.

I loved the fact that this novel is told from the vampire's point of view (even though it's written in third-person). We get to experience what it's like to be a vampire and what it means to be immortal. I found myself sympathising with Philip and his pain after the loss of his dear wife, who dies in childbirth.

By Denise K. Rago - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Set in Ancient Greece this novel lures you into the world of Alexander the Great and his half brother Philip, seduced by a monsterous creature, lost in grief after the death of his wife. Themes of immortality and death as not being the end of love are woven into a rich tale of betrayal and true love.
