Synopsis
A centuries-old vampire haunts the streets of London at night, but he isn't the monster one would expect. Jonathan once fell in love with a human, Anna, who died tragically, breaking his heart. Now he does not kill to feed, though it would make him stronger. He lives in the feared Raven Hollow Manor with his daughter, an orphaned human he adopted. Since he does not kill, he is safe from persecution, that is, until another vampire comes to town and this one doesn't share Jonathan's

This was Jonathan's story, a monster, taking the skin of a man, but with a heart of gold. Filled with love and pain, he lived his life in the darkness of the Raven Hollow Manor, making it his home along with spirits and other things which go bump in the night. An immortal master, benevolent to his adopted child Holly, he lived his life in relative ignominy. Till the murders started happening in the streets of London, and he was blamed...

My first book by Iona Caldwell, it was written with the

The eerie cover of Beneath London’s Fog by Ilona Caldwell makes me think of Jack the Ripper and ghosts. Are you creeped out yet?

Jonathon has made himself a prisoner in Raven Hollow Manor, along with his daughter, Holly. He lost his love, Anna, but her ghostly presence lingers.

His past is coming back to haunt him when a serial killer goes wild in the foggy nights of London.

He is able to transform himself and I loved it. He becomes a cat, a Great Dane, or a mist in the night. Being immortal allows

The narrator of the novel BENEATH LONDON'S FOG by author Iona Caldwell makes it known on the first page that they are not the hero of this novel but rather a villain. This villain is the immortal Jonathan Holloway who resides as the master of Raven Hollow Manor in London. Although the term vampire is never directly used to describe him, it is clear that he suffers from all the things that immortal living bring about.

Probably the most depressing trait of immortality is seeing people and things

While not being a bad book, Beneath London's Fog is not great either. I think it is a good effort, but you notice mistakes, inaccuracies as well as downfalls in the book.

I mostly liked the main character Jonathan. He is very well crafted and seems very accurate.

"I am a monster wearing the face of a man."

Beneath London's Fog is a haunting tale of a tortured soul fighting to keep his humanity in the wake of his monstrous sins and urges. With notes of the macabre, like the works of Poe, and a sad tale not unlike Anne Rice's Louis, this one is sure to put you under its spell. It offers a tale of revenge, beauty, horror, and emotion.

This was such a satisfying story. Though it was short, it left me with the sense of having read a full book, because I

I was really hoping to like this one more than I did. The cover just screams spooky setting but it really wasn’t all that spooky.

It’s told in the POV of Jonathan a vampire who has been around for a long time. He has raised a young girl up a young girl always protecting her from other monsters. Now it seems there is someone out there who is killing people and giving him a bad name and he is afraid that people will come around and bother him and he likes being secluded with just Holly.

Love, lust, revenge...all of the qualities that can (and should) comprise a great vampire story. Iona Caldwell's debut novel showcases every single one of those qualities, and more.

In "Beneath London's Fog", we follow Jonathan Holloway as he tries to figure out who is brutally murdering innocent people in his territory. However, as we accompany him, playing detective alongside, we also learn about his past. We learn about his love, Annabelle, his "daughter", Holly, and who is truly after him.

I want to preface this review with a loud disclaimer: I did not like this book, but others might. Therefore, I will be posting this review even though I received it from the publisher, and it's unfortunately not a rave review. The following are my honest thoughts on the novel.

Truthfully, this book was not for me. I honestly thought it could be, because I thought it would be a supernatural, haunting, creepy read with a vampire twist. I'm always intrigued by those kinds of novels, so I was

My name is Iona Caldwell. I'm the author of the British Occult Fiction, Beneath London's Fog set to be published by FyreSyde Publishing October 2019. When I'm not busy weaving worlds of the arcane and dark, I'm spending time out in nature. I love books. My biggest inspirations are H.P Lovecraft, Stephen King, Neil Gaiman and Edgar Allen Poe. I blog about many things but mostly everything bookish. ...more
