You could have knocked me down with a feather, and all the other clichés, but I've read my first vampire novel and loved every minute of it!

About the Nature of the Creature by L E Turner is a compelling tale, written from the vantage point of Constance, whose human life is cut short during her Edwardian childhood in Bristol.

Connie makes her home in Egypt and expects to stay there but she is drawn back to Bristol and to Purgatory her former safe haven when a series of dreams and images urge her to go back. What she discovers is a way of life which is very different to the one she left behind and as a former Elder it is up to her to sort out the Creatures who have overstepped the line.

L.E. Turner has a talent for story telling that weaves worlds together effortlessly.
Connie is a creature - part vampire/part werewolf - that lives in a world that doesn't embrace either. She is drawn back to Bristol from Egypt where her dreams and intuition tell her that something is brewing, something that threatens not only her life but the lives of all creatures - The Redeemers. Being back in the city where she grew up her emotions and actions are governed by her past and the responsibility
