Title:               Unholy Testament: The Beginnings  
Author:          Carole Gill
Pages:             104 (on my e-reader)
category:      Horror

The story:

The day Eco first laid eyes on Rose Baines was the day she discovered (The House on Blackstone Moor) her family’s savage butchery at the hands of her mad, incestuous father.

“I saw you leave the house that day, Rose, that terrible day you discovered your family butchered. I saw you…”

Eco realizing he has fallen in love with her pens a confession documenting all of his sins committed in the course of his immortal existence. The one request is that Rose reads his confession.

Rose, having become his captive, is forced to read this unholy testament of his.

From Ancient Egyptian vampire cults to Roman vampire brothels to The Dark Ages, The Crusades, The Black Death of 1348 to his meeting with child murderer and Satanist, Gilles de Rais, concluding with his wicked affair with the Blood Countess herself, Erzebat Bathory.

Eco is, if nothing else, frankly and brutally honest. The pages are filled with debauchery and vice and murder–yet, there is also love or what Eco swears is love.

The view of a book addict:

My first thought when I finished the book: Nooooooooo!!!!!!! I couldn’t believe it left me with this cliffhanger! From the first sentence of this book I was hooked, I loved The House on Blackstone Moor so when I was asked to read this book I just had to say yes. I’m glad I did because this book kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time.

Meeting all the historical figures I loved and reading about them just kept me turning the pages of this book. As always the writing style was great, the story moved along quickly but you got the time to get to know the characters and to either fall in love with them or hate them.

The verdict of a book addict:

An amazing book, but I hated the ending because it leaves me craving the next book!
