London, 1794. Lucius Cane, a peculiar sort of vampire, comes upon an opponent the likes of which he has never seen before – a brute with remarkable abilities. But not all is as it seems as their encounter unfolds in a manner that neither of them expected.


Review

You can never go wrong with the Vampire vs. Werewolf theme in a horror-fantasy novel. Plus, I'm always eager to dive into worlds with supernatural creatures, such as these two. The Story of Lucius Cane is a short novella that promises a lot within this field.

Lucius Cane is apparently a very powerful vampire. Jack Estenborough, aka "The Hound", is a werewolf who is hired to kill Lucius, only to fall into a trap. I have to admit that this story is very intriguing and by the end of the novella, I just needed to know what happened next.

But, as is usual with novellas of this length, I felt that many things were missing. The only real backstory we get in this book is how Jack was converted into a werewolf. But Lucius interested me more, as the protagonist, and I wanted to know more about him, like his origin and who/what is the one that he's constantly hearing in his head! Also, in the beginning, we are introduced to a human character, Anne Hathborne, only to forget her as soon as the chapter finishes.

The Story of Lucius Cane is a novella with a lot of potential and I would love to read it as a full-length novel, as well as Book Two, whenever it's ready. If you want something quick to read and you like horror-fantasy then give it a try!
