VICTORIA, TX – Prepare to be captivated and intrigued by a time travel vampire, Cyrus Persian. Author Holly Simpson’s vampire book that readers can sink into. From the eternally enthralling tale of Dracula, Simpson’s storyline is laced with iconic settings, gothic feel, and paranormal romance to gritty horror, with historical accounts and legends of these mythical beings.
Cyrus Persian, a young Persian soldier who is critically wounded in battle and left behind to die or be captured by the enemy. He is ultimately saved by Lydia, an Egyptian priestess for Bastet, the cat goddess. She is cursed by Bastet and made a vampire. She buys Cyrus and keeps him as her slave, but eventually turns him into a vampire to end her loneliness and isolation. Thus begins a new life for these two as they travel through time encountering the Greeks, battling Roman soldiers during the Roman Empire, being sacrificed at the Roman Collisium, taking bloody revenge on those they find worthy of death, and hiding among the Celts in northern Europe, while all the while falling in love, adopting children, and trying to find a way to evade discovery and survive eternal life.
Unlike the typical vampire stereotype of a bloodthirsty predator, Cyrus evokes feelings of loneliness and isolation. His story reflects contemporary fears, as Simpson’s humanizes her characters, her novel becomes more enticing for readers with lots of drama and angst that happens to humans as well.
