Jasper Kenneth Same question. Sad I thought it will be LGBT theme. LOL
Sarah Empire of the Vampires is definitely an Adult book. It might be ok for older teens though depending on what they're comfortable with.…moreEmpire of the Vampires is definitely an Adult book. It might be ok for older teens though depending on what they're comfortable with.(less)

EMPIRE OF THE VAMPIRE is not a book for children.

It concerns an ex-monster-slayer named Gabriel de León, who was once quite-the-awesome but has been having a tough time of late and has become a bit of an edgelord

OMG!!! Vampires are on the rise again!?
Quite literally as it seems! At least in this book!

I only have to hear Jay Kristoff and vampires and I'm already thrilled because damn that man can write and everything I read of him so far was amazing and surprising!

So YES to this!
I can't wait to read Kristoff's take on vampires!
September 2021 though! 😭😭😱

P.S: I love that the title rhymes. XD

No romantic sparkling vampires here!

I like the sound of this book. Like getting back to the basics when vampires were scary monsters, instead of romantic Hero’s/heroines. I feel like I felt all those years ago when I wanted to read Interview With A Vampire, long before the movie was filmed. I can’t wait to read it! I want it now!!!

On the one hand, it's about vampires.
On the other hand, it's written by Jay Kristoff.

I hope this isn't a redux of my Renee Ahdieh "THE BEAUTIFUL" fiasco, because I love that vampires are becoming popular again, but I also really want the stories to be good.

Here's the thing: I still haven't read a single book by Jay Kristoff—*takes cover from the assault of the fans*



—okay okay WAIT! There's a but to that! *placating tone* but by the time this comes out, aka Fall 2020, I'd have read many of his books as I already plan to. So let's be civil (😒) and appreciate the fact that:

It rhymes I repeat THIS IS NOT A DRILL the title actually rhymes! 😂 *dies giggling*

I know Jay Kristoff is kind of a big deal but he's not what's drawing me to this book.

First of all, vampires. I am so glad they're back!

Second of all, IT'S ILLUSTRATED BY ONE OF MY FAVOURITE ARTISTS EVER. Nan Fe is an amazing artists and draws dark and bloody stuff and I love her. Just some examples:



Look at that blood bending Katara!!! I stan.



MY SON KAZ BREKKER



Lila Bard looking hot and deadly.

Coming in the fall of 2021 Empire of the Vampire is the tale you didn’t know you needed but yet it’s here to fill the void.

Not for the faint of heart, EotV is the beautifully crafted, nightmare inducing return of brutal and merciless vampires.

The best book I read this year, heck the best book Jay has ever written if you ask me.

Make sure to add Empire of The Vampire to your most anticipated releases for 2021.

More in depth review in the months to come.

Vampires are making a comeback in the next year between this and The Beautiful and these vampires aren't all fucking sparkles and glitter. One ticket for the murder-train please. My life is complete.
