Seraphympire (Guardians of the Gateways) by author Renee Spyrou is a wonderful supernatural fantasy tale about "Makayla" a Seraphympire, who must find the Trinian Globe and stop a deadly virus wiping out humanity. I have been a fan of vampires since my teens so I may be a bit bias :) The reader quickly becoming engulfed in the world the author seamlessly creates for her readers. Quite frankly, Renee simply amazes me with the amount of effort she puts into this book. Seraphympire is a story combi ...more

Exciting ride!

At first I admit I was a little overwhelmed and thought I'd end up confused but I'm so glad I stuck with it! There were so many turns that I never saw coming. This is a serious rollercoaster ride full of adventure, twist, and turns. While it seemed to have some familiarity to it, it was also a story unlike any other I've ever read. Looking forward to reading the next.

I was recommended this book by the owner of the hotel i was on holidays in Kalymnos Greece earlier this month, the guy said that the author was a relative of his and that the book was good and it was worth reading. And so I started reading it. At the beginning I thought it was a bit girly for me, but as the book was progressing I understood I have made a mistake, I couldn't put it down, I have finished it within 2 days. I really don't want to post any spoilers from the book because fiction reade ...more

A great supernatural read! I want to start this review off by saying I’m not a big fan of vampire books. With that being said, this story takes a whole new spin on the usual vamp plot. Even if you aren’t big into fantasy themes, don’t brush this book aside. There is more going on than just vampires prancing around and drinking each other’s blood.

To dumb the storyline down, Makayla Uriel and her vamp group must save the world from a drug called V5 (a drug that can turn individuals into vampires w

Enjoyed this overall. There was lots going on with this book - lots of subplots and characters and world building - but since it's a series I hope that these will get resolved in the next couple of books.

This was an interesting take on the vampire/ angel genre. Lots of action violence and horror.

A good solid start to the Guardians of the Gateways series. I've never read a story about a schizophrenic vampire. :) Some original creatures and unique settings make it an interesting read. It lays the ground work for the rest of the trilogy. I can not wait to see what happens next. Well done Renee for writing your debut novel. Bring on part 2. I feel the series is just beginning.

I enjoyed 'SERAPHYMPIRE: Guardians of the Gateways' for its large cast of diverse and richly-textured characters, their shifting loyalties, and the epic-level of violent emotions at play. It definitely works as Paranormal Fantasy Romance, a vampire tale with a difference. Kayla/Makayla makes a complex, sympathetic, and visceral double heroine. Alexander, Zack, Reece, and the tangibly evil Zobiana all combine to create an above average vampire tale. Overall the characters are both believable and ...more

I like the special abilities each of the Characters have, it makes each one of them unique and special.

Wow. What an utterly interesting concept and change on the vampire world. I absolutely loved how messed up, smart mouthed and kick-ass the main heroine, Makayla was. I loved her counterpart, Kayla as well but Makayla was the star of the show.
A larger book then what I usually read but I was thoroughly entertained as we transcend into different worlds and introduced to new warriors. I love all the characters within her group that fight alongside Makayla and how they interact with one another in th
