The Lady is a Vamp….

Review of Lady Dorn by Sean Hayden

Admittedly, I am a newbie to the Steampunk genre, but this novel blew me away. It isn’t pretentious as some of the genre have been reported to be.  In fact, it contained all the things that make a novel compelling; excellent character development, vivid imagery and twisty-turny plot designed to keep even the most experienced reader intrigued.

Lady Dorn, a vampire, formally with the British Imperial Guard, is summoned before the emperor to once again fight the mechanical menace that killed the love of her afterlife. Her disdain for the pint-size emperor is evident in the first few pages of the novel.  She does her duty when summoned and goes in search of the vile Dr. Stromanov, the evil scientist responsible for the plot. The same scientist that she killed years ago. His evil inventions have returned and begun killing vampires once more.

For a novel written on a dare, it shows amazing skill.  I can’t wait to read the next novel when it comes out.

This book is available on Amazon for the Kindle.  More information on the author can be found at his blog.
