Ever met a 'Cruxim?'

By Karin Cox
Kindle Edition
Published December 2012 by Indelible Ink Press

Thought you knew all there was to know about vampires and the creatures that hunt them? Well think again, because if you haven't 'met' a Cruxim or a Sphinx, well you have not fully 'lived' in the supernatural world.

'Cruxim' is one of the most original supernatural tales I have read in a long, long while - and I have read a load of 'vampire, angel, demon, fairy-filled' books. Add to this an outstanding cast of characters, intense love-affairs, dramatic scenes, historic places, and a story based on extremely well-researched mythological facts - and you most certainly have the next big thing in this well-loved genre.

Karin has a beautiful and effortless way with words - her descriptions are breathtaking, her characterisations are dimensional, her plot is flawless. Believe me, when you delve into the magical world she has created, you will not be disappointed - only so much in that you will need to wait for her to finish the next book in the series!

"Amedeo is Cruxim — an immortal dark angel who knows neither his purpose, nor his past, save but to feed on the supernatural beings that plague the earth. When his one weakness, the girl and novice nun Josette, is taken and turned by his enemies, Amedeo vows never to rest until evil is expunged from his world — even if that means killing Josette along with her vampire brethren.

On his quest, he meets Sabine: a guardian. Half-woman, half-lioness, she is a Sphinx who has been protecting humans from vampires since the dawn of time. But when she fails in her task of protecting a young boy, she is relentlessly pursued by her evil employer, Dr. Claus Gandler, a scientist collecting a sideshow of freaks.

A gothic paranormal that explores the beast within amid a setting of mythology and forbidden love, Cruxim's dark world and conflicted characters are the antithesis of the sparkly vampire genre."

Let 'Cruxim' take you an all-consuming adventure you will not want to tear yourself away from...
