TheHouseOnBlackstoneMoor_Book1THE HOUSE ON BLACKSTONE MOOR (Book 1)
Rose Baines’ journey into the dark begins with the murders of her family by her insane, incestuous father. Evil has found a way in, as has the world of the undead. Will she become one of them?

The horrific discovery causes her to be incarcerated in two madhouses. Doctor Bannion, superintendent of Marsh Asylum, helps his favorite patient obtain a position as governess at Blackstone House, but why is he so adamant? The house, her charges tell her, is built on haunted moorland. Nothing is as it seems for Blackstone House, and its inhabitants have hideous secrets; the greatest secret of all is that of the blood.

Amid the unimaginable horror there is love – which comes at a terrible price. The House on Blackstone Moor is the first novel in Carole Gill’s Blackstone Vampires Series. It is an epic tale of the eternal struggle of good vs. evil, and a story of love that strives to prevail, despite all odds.

The House on Blackstone Moor is a sure pick for fans of gothic horror novels and darkest vampire romance.

Author’s excerpt from the novel:
Yes, dread and fear are different. Dread is beyond fear, I think. Dread knows fear was correct in the first place, and it just intends to sit and wait for the worst to happen, which will happen because dread, if nothing else, is sure of itself.

So what did I dread? The answer is a great many things, but mostly I dreaded the future.

Emotional pain is worse than physical pain, I believe. No part of my body hurt, yet I was suffering more than I ever had in my life. Here I was, barely seventeen and without family.

UnholyTestament_Book2UNHOLY TESTAMENT – THE BEGINNINGS (Book 2)
Rose and her children find themselves held captive on a ship staffed by vampires, overseen by the mad and evil demon Eco. The last time Rose saw Eco he tried to destroy the children, and now he tells her he loves her.

“I saw you leave the house that day, Rose. That terrible day you discovered your family butchered. I saw you…”
Eco, believing he has fallen in love with her, pens a confession documenting all sins he has committed during his immortal existence.

From Ancient Egyptian vampire cults, Roman vampire brothels, The Dark Ages, The Crusades, The Black Death of 1348, on to his meeting with the child murderer and Satanist Gilles de Rais, and concluding with his wicked, blood-soaked affair with the Blood Countess herself, Erzebat Bathory. The pages are filled with debauchery, vice and murder – how can one stained with so much blood and evil possibly be trusted?

Author’s excerpt of Unholy Testament – The Beginnings:
I am the demon, Eco. I begin at the beginning, that is, my own beginning. There was hardly a time when the world did not know my name or the nature of my existence. I have been feared, hated and condemned to Hell. Yet, what is Hell to me but another place I call home? Demon though I am, my roots are in heaven; my father’s former stomping ground, for Father was one of God’s own angels, as Louis’ father was. Sad to say they backed the losing side, for they chose Lucifer. Yes, he who is called Satan now…

UnholyTestamentFullCircle_Book3UNHOLY TESTAMENT – FULL CIRCLE (Book 3)
There are more blood-drenched confessions to read. Rose has no choice but to finish the journal. Eco, mad and as unpredictable as ever, can snap at any time. But will he?

The rest of the journal tells of the sick and twisted obsession Eco has had for Blackstone House’s former mistress, evil and debauched Eve Darton. There are aristocratic devil rites, both in England and France, including satanic sacrifices. There is the Great Fire of London 1666, plagues, vampire destroyers, witch hunts and resurrection men who supply a necrophile doctor.

The novel comes full circle as all the hideous secrets of Blackstone House are revealed, as are the reasons Rose’s father killed himself and his family.

Dracula is introduced, as is a child cruelly orphaned by the vampires. Dracula, the child’s dying mother says, has cursed her daughter and pleads with Rose to take her. Rose does, but what hope can the hopeless have?

Author’s excerpt from the novel:
Then there is the being that calls neither Heaven nor Hell home, but exists somewhere in the middle—in whatever middle that might be. Do not look or call out for him, for he will come soon enough. Death is here for those passengers and crew the devils feed on. Death, who is always eager for more souls—Death, who always waits. And she is here, too—Lilith, first wife to Adam, the mother of all demons, mistress to both Satan and Eco. Lilith, who has come to think of me as friend. There! Now, can you see the nightmare world I exist in?

TheFourthBride_Book4THE FOURTH BRIDE (Book 4)

After the tragic and sudden death of her groom, Dia, cursed by Dracula as a babe, is taken to his castle.Once there, she is seduced and turned by the count to become his fourth bride. The other brides are to be her sisters, but there is great rivalry as the brides compete for their master’s affection. Dracula takes Dia away, but to whose castle has he taken her and are they being watched? Dracula’s gypsies are loyal to their master and will try to save him, but the destroyers led by Van Helsing come and there is great carnage. Still, for one, there is salvation from the unlikeliest of saviors. There is betrayal and a freak show run by evil men, as well as the greatest passion Dia will ever know, but can she trust it? And what of Dracula’s greatest vampire enemy, the one who has fallen in love with Dia; the nobleman Dracula turned. Can he be trusted?

Author’s excerpt from The Fourth Bride:
The incident though, this rising up of vampire killers, disturbed Dracula and he became moody and silent. Eventually, he took me aside. He told me first of himself and of the princely blood he had, which flowed through his veins. “These veins,” he said, pointing at them, “once ran with living blood—blood that nourished a human being and not this evil and corruption you see before you.” I scoffed at that, whereupon he smiled sadly. “No, dear one, it is true. I am not as I was, a warrior prince of the house of Dracula who did battle Turks to keep this land free…”
