This book was pretty awful. I'm giving it 2 stars only because the concept is a bit interesting—sadly, the execution is horrible.

The dialogs are… stilted is too mild a word. Also, they read flat and forced—they don't convey a single emotion. If anything, the "good guys" come across as complete idiots.

There are no descriptions of places, clothes, weather, etc. This would be acceptable—it is a short story—if those words wouldn't have been wasted uselessly reinforcing everything we were being shown

I'm grateful to have won a copy of this book and that the author even signed it for me. I think it's wonderful that he's donating money to a worthy cause.
As for the book, I thought it had an interesting concept that could turn into something great, but it just hasn't gotten there yet. I wish it were written from a different point of view so that you could really start to get into the characters heads more. Unless they are speaking, you're simply told how they fell rather than go through their e

"The author, Sean H. Robertson, is donating TEN PERCENT of his royalties for the entire "Cries of Vampira" book saga to the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, because as their slogan says, "With Help Comes Hope." Sean is an overcomer of depression as a former victim of child molestation & wants to help EVERYONE who is battling hopelessness & despair worldwide, so please spread the word to your GoodReads friends to shelve this book today as well. THANK YOU! "

This book definitely puts a twist on the ever popular theme of vampire vs. werewolves and good vs. evil. Set up much like a fairytale told as a bedtime story, but with a more graphic view for the adults. It's a short book (70-80 pgs) so it is a quick read and leaves us with bated breath for the second installation as it ends with a cliff hanger. Got to keep them coming back for more, right?! I think you will find this novella an enjoyable read.

Before I start this review, I would like to give a wholehearted thanks to Sean Robertson for sending me a free promotional copy of his work "The Cries of Vampira, and for donating to such a wonderful cause.

I've read the whole of "The Cries of Vampira" multiple times, but haven't been able to write a review of it until now because I've wanted to give it a thorough, constructively critical review. I'll admit that while I wasn't necessarily taken in by the story because of some fundamental issues w

Sean Robertson has dedicated a percentage of the sales of his new novella to the Suicide Prevention Hotline. What a wonderful thought. Another wonderful thought was the basis for this novella. At only 70 paperback pages, Mr. Robertson’s storyline could have been a keeper.


The setting is the year 1100. We never really learned why there was such hatred between the Vampira and The Grey Wolves. We do learn triplets are born to the Vampira King and Queen, Kristin, Kylie, and Kolbe; two girls and a so

I was pleasantly surprised with this novella. I liked the pacing of it, it was fast sometimes almost too fast. I also loved Princess Kristin. She is the queen to-be and Vampira's most fierce Assassin. I found it so refreshing a princess who is also a warrior, and I was rooting for her when she faces the wolves. That's why I was so sadden by what happens to her character at the end of the book. It' pretty much soured the whole book for me. I get it, she need it to learn humility, but still I did ...more

When I accepted this book for review, I thought this was going to be another vampire versus werewolves book. What surprised me about this book though, was that there was so much more to it.

While the cover is eerie and dark, it seems to fit the tone of the book perfectly. This isn't a light read about just romance and such. There is a message behind the writing and the author did a wonderful job of weaving it into a fantastical tale.

While I won't go as far to say that this book was outstanding a

This short novella is the first in a series about the Grey Wolve's attack on the Vampira kingdom. The Grey Wolves are werewolves while the citizens of Vampira are vampires who feed on animal blood and wish to make peace with the humans even though they are scared of them. They love the Grey Wolves even though they want to make war on them and take over their kingdom. According to the beginning of the book Gaad Grey the Grey Wolf is raised by one of Satan's angels or even Satan himself after his ...more

I liked this book. Was kinda of disappointed, because it ended so quick. Sean did a nice job creating his work of Vampira. You instantly like the charectors of Vampira. Queen Grace, Princess Kristin, Princess Kiley, Prince Kolbe. They each have there own story to tell. Vampira is a world of Vampires, they live amongst the mortals in peace and they protect the mortals.

Both societies have a deadly enemy and that is Gaad Grey the leader of the Were Wolves. He wants to rule over everyone. He was rai

The Cries Of Vampira is an interesting and fast-paced read. I liked the historical background and the vampires' fondness towards the human species. The characters are good, Kristin and Kyle are strong women ready to sacrifice their own life and honor for their people. I'm looking forward to the developing of Prince Kolbe's story, I believe the boy has potential.
Although it was a pleasant read, two things really bugged me: first, there wasn't a real explanation of the vampires and werewolves' his

I read this book though a free PDF file provided by the author. I also requested it though a giveaway. For a free book it was ok. Took me a little while to get though it even though it was only 80 pages. I felt that the charactors were under developed. Also the writing style wasnt my favorite, being told what they do instead of how they feel, think, isn't my style of choice. Also I love that the author is giving part of their proceeds to an amazing cause. I personally do their "out of the darkne ...more

I just finished reading the novella and while I enjoyed the premise and the gore, I thought the writing was melodramatic in places. The totally black and white of the good vampires vs. the evil werewolves left little room for subtlety. I understand the need to develop strong characters that the reader (or viewer or listener) can grab onto, but sometimes having some shades of grey can be engaging.

Books 2 & 3 are said to contain more history and am looking forward to finding out what happens

I adored it. It took me a second to sync up with the authors style of writing, as it is unique, but not in a bad way. The format actually adds to the charm. I can not wait for the second book. If I had to say something negative about The Cries of Vampira, I guess I would have to say that it ended entirely too soon! And with such a blood chilling cliff hanger! Come on Sean, get that second one out for us! I must know the fate of the Robertson siblings and see vengeance delt to, tsk....I don't wan ...more

The war between vamps and werewolves continues with yet another take, another style of writing, which I enjoyed! Although the story takes place in the 14th century, the characters had 'modern' names and instead of all flowery type scenes, there were times when the writing smacked totally of 'in your face' today! (If that makes sense) One thing I noticed, the royal vampire family's surname was the same as the author's! Hmmmm...proof of vampires??? Different, dark, the few editing issues were easy ...more

The romance seems to be just getting started, and I am looking forward to reading more to find out what happens between Princess Kristen and her lover! And the dynamic between the siblings is superb, they are all so different, it really creates such a triangle of emotions. My only hope is that the next book slows do ...more

Sean, I can honestly say I didn’t know what to expect when I start reading your novella: it was amazing despite its shortness and I am really craving for more. In some parts, I felt like I was watching a horror movie with passages that touched me both for their crudeness and desperation while others for their sweetness.
Besides, I praise you for your gesture towards the NSPL association since I’ve also experienced first hand, with one of my siblings, the very dark moments this association is tryi

In the end it left me wanting more.What will happened to Vampira, Princess Kristin, Prince Kolbe, and Gaad Grey.I wanted to know what was going to happened next.I received the book for free through Goodreads First Reads.

Upon glimpsing at the first page, the names alone were overwhelming. I honestly thought this was going to be a very long, very drawn out story. I couldn't have been more wrong.
This authors writing style is very reminiscent of Jeanne Kalogridis's style. You are pulled into the characters and the setting.
The story is very interesting as well. Not your run of the mill vampire story.
Would recommend to those readers looking for a breath of fresh air!!
