Did you enjoy the long weekend in Canada (Thanksgiving) and the States (Memorial Day)?
Those of you who have read Helens-of-Troy (see shameless freebie to the right) know that we have a special place in our hearts for Goth-Chics. Our author today may or may not be a Goth, but she's rockin' the blue hair, that's for sure, (you'll see below) so we're giving her a big thumbs up right from the get-go.
LD has a book she wants to share with us today, and it's call the RAVENERS. A title like that brings Hitchcockian images to mind already, non?
That's my imagination working overtime. Here's LD's description of her story:
On 26 May 1897, Bram Stoker brought us the story of Dracula; an undead creature who terrorised the living by drinking their blood. He based his creature on the legends of Ireland and Eastern Europe, bringing it to life with all the pomp of Victorian literature. What if his concept was correct, but the execution was not? What if there was not one creature, but a band of twenty-four? Crusader knights who committed such a terrible act that the Pope of Rome and the Rabbis of Jerusalem joined together in petitioning God to bring a terrible curse upon them.Sentenced to eternal life as punishment for their crimes, yet hounded by both the clerical and the secular as they struggle to live them. The Jews called them Ga’ashekelah: the Raveners. To the Catholic Church, they are the Accursed Ones. Feasting on the bodies of the living to maintain their power.
What starts as a simple trip on the Eurostar to the buried trenches of World War One in Northern France is going to take Imperial War Museum expert Dr. Alexandra Horne on a journey she could never have conceived. From the bustling streets of Paris to the azure waters of Collioure and the very Vatican itself, Lexa will discover the Raveners and those who have sworn to hunt them down.

LD Towers travels the world like a rootless vagabond! A military historian, she searches out places of conflict to find a deeper insight to the things she writes about. Presently enjoying the warm weather and azure seas of Central America, she has lived all over Western Europe, including 5.5 years in the incomparable Berlin.
Primarily working in Historical and Military Fiction, LD sometimes sneaks in the odd Dystopian or Modern Thriller piece. In fact, her new book is a complete redo on the vampire concept. Look for The Raveners; coming September 20, 2016.
LD Towers came to us today via Bewitching Book Tours. We did not receive anything for this promo. We're just keepin' the dream alive. If you'd like to check out more great reads, head on over to BBT and check out their Haunted Halloween Spooktacular.
