Vote for horror . . . The Darkness of the Vigil.

Here’s the book representing the horror genre – The Darkness of the Vigil.


Everyone likes helping an orphanage. There’s the charity workers. There’s the social workers. There’s politicians who need to be seen helping a good cause, hungry for votes. And there’s the forces of darkness, hungry for something else entirely. Children that no-one will miss? A source of nourishment . . . without distraught parents filing missing person’s reports.

But When the Barr Brook Children’s Home is infiltrated and offered up to the Reds, the vampires and their human slaves make one fatal mistake. They leave a few of the children alive to tell the tale.

The survivors must die. But the survivors have other ideas, and in the Blood War, the hunters might just become the hunted!
