In A History of Vampires: A New Queen, Amanda Lewis has written an original story about immortals and their role on earth. Archaeology professor Angelina has noticed a dark presence wherever she goes. When she finally corners the man she has seen all over the world, hovering on the fringes of her vision, in New Orleans, a new world full of intrigue opens to her. When Jude insists she will be his wife, they start a three-week intense dating experience. She meets the family and other members of The Society of Messengers on Earth, some of whom are a great surprise. Jude has been following Angelina for three years, making sure that she is trustworthy and honest. He has learned all about her, and when he lets her corner him in New Orleans, he is sure that he wants her to be his wife, The New Queen of the Vampires.
In A History of Vampires, Amanda Lewis tells a story filled with strong yet humble characters. Personalities from history grace the pages with their appearance in a story that sets the scene for a great series to follow. Devoid of explicit sexual or graphic violence, Ms. Lewis writes a logical and moral story. If you are looking for brooding dark vampires, then this is not the book for you. Every time a character says to wait until they are married, I silently applaud as we need more morally strong characters to fill the fantasy world. The story addressed topics of genocide and the current ecological crisis we face with plastic pollution and the destruction of habitats. Thank you, Amanda, for writing a vampire story with a light atmosphere; a good clean read with great moral themes.
