Great quick read!

Just finished this novelette which is a prequel to Stray Witch. I loved that book, and I loved this one! Perfect witchy read for this time of year. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I really liked this book. It's set after WW2 and it tells the story of Julia, a widow who is trying to solve the mystery of her husband's death. She finds herself involved with a clan of vampires. The characters are awesome. I loved Julia, Ludovic and Francesca. It was a great introduction to this series. Can't wait to read the next one.

The Vampire's Assistant is a beautifully written love story, somehow both dark and tragic and sweet and refreshing, all at once. A must read for any lover of the paranormal. Or anyone else, for that matter. I couldn't put it down!

The Vampire's Assistant is a novella that prequels The Vampires of Emberbury Book 1 ‘The Stray Witch' which is one of the first books that I reviewed for Bedside Book Review.This novella is written in the same light and easy way as 'The Stray Witch', it is a quick little story to read and absolutely can be read as a standalone book. However, be warned, if you pick up this book you will be completely drawn into Eva Alton's world of vampires and witches. Julia is a war widow who is stalked at her ...more

BRILLIANT !
A love story in a surreal post WWII world. It is heart felt and heart breaking but shines a light on why and Vampires require daytime assistants.
The characters are so realistically portrayed that the sights and sounds draw you into the book.
I loved it and could not put it down.

Got the book at the beggining of the month and finally got the tine to read it. It's a prequel. Nice writing, likable characters and left me wanting to read more about them. An easy catchy read. Finished it fast and was relieved the "next" book from the series is already out and continued with that one right away!

After having read Stray witch I've been very eager to pick up this short story. All I can say is that I was not disappointed. It was fascinating to learn about both Julia and Francesca's history. I hadn't guessed that either of them had experienced so much. I'm tempted to re-read Stray Witch now I know so much more about the story! It was a captivating read and one I couldn't put down. I only wish that it had been much, much longer! I want to know more about Julia - perhaps another short story, ...more

Once again, Eva Alton has grabbed me from the opening sentence - and I am not a reader of paranormal fantasy. Well, except for Alton books. I read Ms. Alton’s first book, Stray Witch which was worth every 5 star I gave it. The Vampire’s Assistant, the prequel, was just as compelling. The characters are well developed and as always, there’s good vampires along with a couple of scarier characters (beware of bookstore owners). Alton’s writing is exceptional. If she keeps this up, she’ll be a force ...more

This is the prequel to The Vampires of Emberbury series. I really enjoyed reading this book. I thought it was well written and the characters well written as well. This was a quick read but held your interest from start to finish. I would recommend reading and am looking forward to reading book 1.

Julia was a war widow but found out her husband might not be dead. Then she ended up being in service to a vampire. While on her journey to finding her husband, an unexpected love was found, she realized new things about herself, danger followed them and her husband had life altering secrets. Interesting and intriguing story
