Angry Robot has posted a preview of Carpathia, which hits stores in the US today. Check it out below and read the first seven chapters for free!
If that’s not enough to convince you, here’s another review that showed up this morning from Paul Simpson at SciFiBulletin, who gives the book an 8 out of 10:
There’s plenty of gore and horrifying incidents for those who like their vampire fiction to reflect the ‘reality’ of the situation, rather than the sparkly Twilight variety, and Forbeck uses the social mores of the time to good effect (a kiss on the lips is infinitely more startling than the presence of vampires, for example!)
Verdict: A fast-paced, thoroughly enjoyable historical horror novel.
Carpathia is on sale now in US stores and will be available in the UK and for ebook worldwide on March 1.
