    This book was pretty awful. I'm giving it 2 stars only because the concept is a bit interesting—sadly, the execution is horrible. The dialogs are… stilted is too mild a word. Also, they read flat and forced—they don't convey a single emotion. If anything, the "good guys" come across as complete idiots. There are no descriptions of places, clothes, weather, etc. This would be acceptable—it is a short story—if those words wouldn't have been wasted uselessly reinforcing everything we were being shown This book was pretty awful.

If someone is chewing a person to death while laughing diabolically, we certainly don't need a whole paragraph telling us how incredibly evil that character is. Finally, the plot. Basically, the bad guys were in a very good position, ready to win. So, what did the good guys do? Made it even easier. *Facepalm* Seriously, the idea of a nation of good vampires and another of bad werewolves going at each other is not bad. Trained assassins, soldiers, spies, the humans in the middle of it all. Could be interesting. However, this book managed to mangled that idea until all it remained was a terrible vampire fan-fiction.

    I'm grateful to have won a copy of this book and that the author even signed it for me. I think it's wonderful that he's donating money to a worthy cause. As for the book, I thought it had an interesting concept that could turn into something great, but it just hasn't gotten there yet.

    This book definitely puts a twist on the ever popular theme of vampire vs. werewolves and good vs. evil. Set up much like a fairytale told as a bedtime story, but with a more graphic view for the adults. It's a short book (70-80 pgs) so it is a quick read and leaves us with bated breath for the second installation as it ends with a cliff hanger. Got to keep them coming back for more, right?! I think you will find this novella an enjoyable read. This book definitely puts a twist on the ever popular theme of vampire vs. werewolves and good vs. evil.

    Before I start this review, I would like to give a wholehearted thanks to Sean Robertson for sending me a free promotional copy of his work "The Cries of Vampira, and for donating to such a wonderful cause. I've read the whole of "The Cries of Vampira" multiple times, but haven't been able to write a review of it until now because I've wanted to give it a thorough, constructively critical review.

I've read the whole of "The Cries of Vampira" multiple times, but haven't been able to write a review of it until now because I've wanted to give it a thorough, constructively critical review. I'll admit that while I wasn't necessarily taken in by the story because of some fundamental issues with how it was told, the story itself I think could have potential as a novel if expanded in context and given greater character focus. To give a bit of background -"The Cries of Vampira" revolves around a clan of vampires (Clan Robertson) that reside in Vampira, Scotland and seek to keep their native land and people safe from their mortal enemies The Grey Wolves, a group of werewolves that antagonize and ultimately swear on the demise of the vampire clan. The head of the Grey Wolves, Gaad Grey, swears vengeance (for a reason that doesn't come across other than for sheer terror and pilfering for their own measures). The Royal Family in Vampira blissfully celebrates the coming of age of their children (and potential King), while Gaad Grey's forces plan a full scale attack. The Council scrambles to thwart the upcoming attack, but tragedy isn't far ahead for the Royal family as events come to pass, and ultimately, it's a story the has quite measurable costs in what turns out to be a merciless tragedy. The unfortunate thing I'd say about the novella, however, is that the tragedy lacks elements to have it hit home in the heart of the reader. I think "The Cries of Vampira" has a potentially good premise, and certainly enough in plotting to be carried into a memorable Historical Fiction/Paranormal story for fans of the genre, but the execution left much to be desired. The writing comes across in present tense for the unfolding action. That would be fine in terms of the writing style that Robertson possesses, but it doesn't quite work for the format of a novella. The dialogue seems a bit stilted even for its attempt to capture a historical tone, and unfortunately that bites into some of the more tragic events that come to pass in the 72 page work, and made it hard to flow in terms of the conversations that take place. No doubt I saw the events for what they were as I read it, but I think if it were expanded, the characters given more qualities to be shown in expanse, rather than being told, it would have had much more impact. We don't truly have an eye into the heart of any of the characters long enough to connect with them, so when several of the tragic events unfold, they don't nearly have as much punch as they could have. The villain, Gaad Grey, is clearly the antagonist of the work, but when examining the conflict that unravels through the work - it feels like you don't see the underlying dimensions of what makes these two sides either good or evil. I think if it were expanded and delved into with more depth of background, this could've been less one-sided in terms of a good versus evil battle. I would've even liked to see what made Gaad Grey tick and get a bit of his background that would bring his mercilessness that much more sinister. I definitely felt the story suffered on this end because you knew too easily who the parties were that were victimized, and the evil beings - without there being a multidimensional level of conflict to take from. It was hard for me to really connect with it for that reason. I can only give it as much as one and a half stars for what it was trying to do, but unfortunately it wasn't my cup of tea. I do, however, support Sean's work and look forward to seeing more from him in the future. Overall score: 1.5/5

The Vampirian people which include a bevy of humans, represent democracy and love and peace to all, are preparing for battle with the Grey Wolves led by Gaad Gray, and evil and ugly bad boy. One princess is a strong fighter, engaged to be married and loved by all, the other princess is younger, but not any less of a humanitarian and the brother, somewhat of a rake, living only for the wine and the women. The chapters are set apart in time increments and we see how fast things can dissolve and dissolve they do when the middle princess deliberately puts herself in the hands of the werewolves. The oldest, strongest sister leaves the protection of her people to find her sister, fueled on by the murder of her fiancé by a mole in the castle. She ultimately finds her sister who has been beaten severely and is half dead by that time. She is forced to watch her sister be half eaten by the werewolves in a particularly gory scene and she herself is brutally raped. Meanwhile, back at the castle, the Queen realizing the danger her people are in, forces the young Prince into the tunnels below the castle to escape the werewolves. His instructions are to live and to come back and continue the fight for love and freedoms for the Vampira people. Will he do it? What becomes of the strong princess now locked in the werewolf dungeons? What becomes of the Queen and the Vampira people under the rule of the evil Gaad Grey? There are many questions that the author sets us up to ask for future volumes in this story. (hide spoiler)] What I liked: I found the story to be interesting and for some reason that I can’t quite put my finger on, I was really pulled in to this world. While I thought the love scenes were a little canned, again for some reason, I enjoyed them and found myself wrapped up in this story. I recognize and admire the author’s charity (why? Does it come from a personal experience? Maybe the author should write about that? ) but I don’t really understand the connection between the charity and the story? The potential in this story is great and I would purchase Volume II with the hopes that my questions might be answered. What I disliked: The story tended to read like a screenplay and there was absolutely no emotions attached to the characters. The dialogue was dry and forced. There were some story lines that needed refining (why are the werewolves so evil?) and personally speaking, I would like to see the “c” word removed from the story. There was really no call for it and while I may sound like a prude, I just didn’t like it in the story about love and peace. The use of it did not make the werewolves any more evil.

King George and his arch rival Gaal Grey battle it out until death, and the story fast forwards. Gaad Grey, the son of the late Werewolf King Gal Grey, is on a mission to avenge his fathers death and to create the ultimate mortal species.

Kolbe, the male of the three triplets was not sent due to severe immaturity issues. Kristin was forewarn by her mother Queen Grace in regards to being over confident about her fighting ability. Due to thinking her fighting skills were second to none, she made a serious mistake underestimating the power of Gaad's werewolve soldiers. Turns out for Kristin that the new breed of wolves were much stronger than the ones she had done battle with in the past. Fighting them off resulted to her becoming tired ane weak. Observing the aftermath of the torture her sister Kylie endured was one thing but suffering ear damage due to Gloom, head mistress and Werewolf Queen of Gaad loudly echoing to the point of blood pouring out of Princess Kristin ears was another. I just knew it would be the demise of Queen Grace's daughters. Princess Kristin is still alive but the question is for how long? What a great way to end a cliffhanger Mr Robertson.

No real good answers for this black and white dichtomy. I would have loved some history to explain it, but there wasn't any. This book was pretty shallow on character development. I mean, there was no character development in my opinion. Sure we were introduced to them, but the author could have taken a few chapters to "build" the characters and develop them. After Gaal Gray and King George's demise, the author could have taken that opportunity to set up the history between these two enemies, in order for us to really feel the hatred that Gaad was born into. It also seemed quite one-sided as the Vampirians didn't hate the grey wolves. Also, these vampires possessed no vampire characteristics other than fangs that were mentioned in the first battle. In fact, these vampirians seemed more human than anything. I mean, the prince drank wine, not blood. The newly married princess was going to eat cake. What made them vampires? I couldn't tell anything special about them--no extraordinary strength, no powers of persuasion, no fear of daylight, nothing! Same with the werewolves, we saw that Gaad could shift, but what else did the werewolves do? How did they exist? I didn't even know Gaad had a mate until the last scene. What happened to Loki? If there was a god watching over the werewolves, where was the god who cared for the vampires? Things that made me say "Huh?": 1) Why didn't any of the humans were kept hearing about appear with the Vampirians? 2) It made NO sense to send in a princess, assassin or not, into such a strong enemy's territory ALONE? 3) Chef Hans was the ONLY person in the kitchen area? Why did it take so long to find his body? 4) Queen finds out there is a traitor and still announces that daughter is going to look for Gaad. Last, the dialogue never flowed. It was forced, unnatural and just awkward. The potential of this book is really good. I think it could be a great book if stretched into 250-300 pages allowing things to build. Both the storyline as well as suspense. I wish this author lots of luck with the sequel to this book. Please take your time and lay a good foundation.

I had to put it down several times because the story is told in third person, but in present tense which grated on my nerves.

Here is a an example: on page 5: "Gaal and Gomer Grey stand back, watching their mighty Grey Wolves overpower the Vampirian soldiers and then turn their attention towards King George. Gaal and Gomer viciously throw their own werewolves away from the now wounded King George. The pack backs off, subservient, as their alphas assault King George themselves. Gaal chews off his left arm as Gomer mauls his left leg. King George, with his last burst of strength and spirit, slashes his Silo Sword with his right hand at the heads of Gaal and Gomer Grey, instantly decapitating both of their wide-eyed, smiling faces. The heads fly from their bodies as his own flesh dangles from their slavering mouths." Logically the above altercation doesn't make much sense. How is it possible for King George to kill Gaal and Gomer with one sword swing? I realize that their heads are in semi-alignment, but this just seems preposterous to me, especially since he just had an entire werewolf pack attack him, surely someone would have thought to disarm him?. . . Ugh. Also, logic fails me as to why the heads of Gaal and Gomer are wide-eyed and smiling when just previously they happened to be mauling and chewing on dear George's arms and legs. Similar contradictions, as pointed out above, are seen throughout the entire novella. Also, the text seemed to be more indicative of an outline, like a quick bullet point summary of the story, as opposed to actually showing the story, the action, and the character development, of which we see none. Overall, it was disappointing. I think with a bit more effort and planning, and a few less clichés in the storyline, this could have been a much better read.

    King George and his brother, Prince Shannon are leasurely horseback riding through the night, happy of the birth of the Kings triplets - two girls, one boy - hoping they will know peace in the world in their time. When unexpectedly the King, Prince, and fifty guard are surrounded by two hundred of their archenemies, the Grey Wolves. The young heir of the Grey Wolves watched as the King of Vampira, being brutily eaten to death, kills his parents. Gaad Grey wants to grow up to have his revenge on King George and his brother, Prince Shannon are leasurely horseback riding through the night, happy of the birth of the Kings triplets - two girls, one boy - hoping they will know peace in the world in their time. When unexpectedly the King, Prince, and fifty guard are surrounded by two hundred of their archenemies, the Grey Wolves. The young heir of the Grey Wolves watched as the King of Vampira, being brutily eaten to death, kills his parents. Gaad Grey wants to grow up to have his revenge on the Vampires, or will he? Seventeen years later the children are grown and have their sides and those to protect or fight. This is where our story truly picks up; with the triplets and Gaad Grey. They must protect themselves, fight, or make a last stand. I was nervous reading the first section of the King George and Prince Shannon. I felt as I didn't make a connection at the start as the book jumps right into the meat of the troubles and the battle fought seemed hard to believe because of the exact numbers given in which the King and Prince killed yet there is fifty guard there too. But into the next section, I really started to enjoy the story. The Vampires have a different take on the world than most norm. The story as a whole happens in one evening and told from different view points. These different view points give a different side of the characters at hand. A quick way to get attached with these characters and see the world created here. The story got really going for me and I was fearing the end would not be a conclusion. Unfortunately, the book does end in a cliffhanger. But it was enjoyable for a quick read. I look forward to when Sean comes out with book two to see what happens. This book is listed as Young Adult as well. I would suggest this for a teenager as there is some violence and sex in the read.

Princess Kristin sheds tears of fright for the first time ever as she screams out in the most heart-wrenching cry of her life, “Help me! Someone, please help me!”" I believe it's so hard to break someone like her; she is my favorite character so far. Over all the story needed to be a BIG novel. I must admit it has not been the flawless but I can live with that. The Cries of Vampira is a book either to love or hate and I chose to love. I can't wait for part 2... P.S. Vampira is my vampire's name...

I will only provide my thoughts, no spoilers on events of the book, for that you will have to read the book! 0_0 I personally love the direction Sean H. Robertson took the story; a different and fresh take on the paranormal. Although the story is set in the 11th and 12th centuries, it is very relatable. It illustrates we all have had struggles we must overcome for the greater good. I admire the strong characteristics of his characters; courage, loyalty, optimistic, and overall desire for peace. Each character has a presence about them, which makes them quite unforgettable. As I was reading, I saw the events that lead a royalty family to make sacrifices but seem that those sacrifices might not be enough to save Vampira. I am captivated to see how the characters continue to develop. The major cliffhanger has me on the edge, gripping for more. Note: I received the book as a holiday gift from author Sean H. Robertson, for being part of The Cries Of Vampira Saga fan club. Although the book was a gift, as an avid reader I am only interested in providing other readers with my honest and true opinions. Thank you!

The Cries of Vampira: The Horror of Gaad Grey, The Evil Alpha Werewolf-Volume 1 is dark and gruesome. Warning to those who are weak in the stomach. There is violent decapitation and a rape. This did not bother me as it was part of the story and it showed just how evil Gaad Gray was. I did think that this story was a bit lopsided, where the vampires were concerned. Gaad and his wolves dominated in the story. They did most of the killing. They may the vampires look like the weaker beings. I hope to see the vampirians make more of an appearance in the nest book. The Cries of Vampira will have you howling.

The King and his brother the Prince are massacred while riding on the Royal grounds after the babies birth by the Grey Wolves. The story then skips to 17 yrs later when the triplets are turning 18. My thoughts to both you and the author while reading this book would be more constructive than critical. My sense was that this was written as more of an outline for a larger story. Certainly this could have been a novel rather than novella. Each chapter lacked depth and description that the storyline begs for. The characters have no depth, the story was rushed and to me much too simplistic for a thirteen year old. Yet there is harsh language, violence, and sex too mature for this age group. It could have been a more in depth story, and been YA 17 and it would have been a stronger book or prequel to a new series. Review by Gloria Lakritz Review Chairperson Paranormal Romance Guild

    I was pleasantly surprised with this novella. I liked the pacing of it, it was fast sometimes almost too fast. I also loved Princess Kristin. She is the queen to-be and Vampira's most fierce Assassin. I found it so refreshing a princess who is also a warrior, and I was rooting for her when she faces the wolves. That's why I was so sadden by what happens to her character at the end of the book. It' pretty much soured the whole book for me. I get it, she need it to learn humility, but still I did I was pleasantly surprised with this novella. I liked the pacing of it, it was fast sometimes almost too fast. I also loved Princess Kristin.

There are some errors that were missed when edited, but nothing major that stops you from understanding the plot. What did bother me was how modern the dialogue was for the story to be set in 1130. As well, the mythology is not very well explained. For example, I don't know if these vamps walk in the sun, the whole eating human food, and what I got from Princess Kristin's passages apparently they were children once, I'd like to know how does that work. (I received this book from the Goodreads first reads giveaway. Thank you!)

It was different (in a good way) from most vampire/werewolf novels out today. The character of Gaad Grey was very well developed and served an effective role as the symbol of evil in the story. The story also brought up interesting themes of revenge and forgiveness, like when Princess Kylie tries to barter for peace unsucessfully with Grey. Most of the characters are also fairly well-developed. However, the dialogue needs work in a few places-s The overall backbone of the plot was very original.

Most of the characters are also fairly well-developed. However, the dialogue needs work in a few places-sometimes the characters have unrealistic conversations in which they talk about and explain things that they would clearly already know for the benefit of the audience. Also, some of the more intense (such as the battle) scenes could use a bit more description. I thought that the plot and setting for this book were very original-it is definitely a book that takes an interesting twist from the average vampire-werewolf equation.

    When I accepted this book for review, I thought this was going to be another vampire versus werewolves book. What surprised me about this book though, was that there was so much more to it. While the cover is eerie and dark, it seems to fit the tone of the book perfectly. This isn't a light read about just romance and such. There is a message behind the writing and the author did a wonderful job of weaving it into a fantastical tale. While I won't go as far to say that this book was outstanding a When I accepted this book for review, I thought this was going to be another vampire versus werewolves book.

What I love the most about this book is that with every purchase of this book, 10% of all the proceeds will be donated to The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. For the small price of this book, you are helping people who may need it in a great time of need.

    I liked this book. Was kinda of disappointed, because it ended so quick. Sean did a nice job creating his work of Vampira. You instantly like the charectors of Vampira. Queen Grace, Princess Kristin, Princess Kiley, Prince Kolbe. They each have there own story to tell. Vampira is a world of Vampires, they live amongst the mortals in peace and they protect the mortals. Both societies have a deadly enemy and that is Gaad Grey the leader of the Were Wolves. He wants to rule over everyone. He was rai I liked this book. Was kinda of disappointed, because it ended so quick. Sean did a nice job creating his work of Vampira.

    The Cries Of Vampira is an interesting and fast-paced read. I liked the historical background and the vampires' fondness towards the human species. The characters are good, Kristin and Kyle are strong women ready to sacrifice their own life and honor for their people. I'm looking forward to the developing of Prince Kolbe's story, I believe the boy has potential.

Anyway, it's a nice story that takes only 2 hours of your time.

    What a great plot! I love the new twist on vampires and werewolves!! The wolves are absolutely horrid animals, and the Grey’s seem to be setting a new theme for the typical werewolf! The romance seems to be just getting started, and I am looking forward to reading more to find out what happens between Princess Kristen and her lover! And the dynamic between the siblings is superb, they are all so different, it really creates such a triangle of emotions. My only hope is that the next book slows do What a great plot!

    I just finished reading the novella and while I enjoyed the premise and the gore, I thought the writing was melodramatic in places. The totally black and white of the good vampires vs. the evil werewolves left little room for subtlety. I understand the need to develop strong characters that the reader (or viewer or listener) can grab onto, but sometimes having some shades of grey can be engaging. Books 2 & 3 are said to contain more history and am looking forward to finding out what happens next I just finished reading the novella and while I enjoyed the premise and the gore, I thought the writing was melodramatic in places.

    Sean, I can honestly say I didn’t know what to expect when I start reading your novella: it was amazing despite its shortness and I am really craving for more. In some parts, I felt like I was watching a horror movie with passages that touched me both for their crudeness and desperation while others for their sweetness.

    I adored it. It took me a second to sync up with the authors style of writing, as it is unique, but not in a bad way. The format actually adds to the charm. I can not wait for the second book. If I had to say something negative about The Cries of Vampira, I guess I would have to say that it ended entirely too soon! And with such a blood chilling cliff hanger! Come on Sean, get that second one out for us! I must know the fate of the Robertson siblings and see vengeance delt to, tsk....I don't wan I adored it.

    The war between vamps and werewolves continues with yet another take, another style of writing, which I enjoyed! Although the story takes place in the 14th century, the characters had 'modern' names and instead of all flowery type scenes, there were times when the writing smacked totally of 'in your face' today! (If that makes sense) One thing I noticed, the royal vampire family's surname was the same as the author's! Hmmmm...proof of vampires??? Different, dark, the few editing issues were easy The war between vamps and werewolves continues with yet another take, another style of writing, which I enjoyed!

    I won this book free from a Goodreads giveaway and was really very impressed with this author. I love paranormal romance books but this was so shockingly not fluffy and pretty that I became engrossed with the darkness and grittiness of this tale. I wish that the story had gone on a little bit further but that just leaves me wanting more! Thank you Sean H. Robertson for surprising me and taking me outside of my comfort zone.

    Upon glimpsing at the first page, the names alone were overwhelming. I honestly thought this was going to be a very long, very drawn out story. I couldn't have been more wrong. This authors writing style is very reminiscent of Jeanne Kalogridis's style. You are pulled into the characters and the setting. The story is very interesting as well. Not your run of the mill vampire story. Would recommend to those readers looking for a breath of fresh air!! Upon glimpsing at the first page, the names alone were overwhelming.
