Urban fantasy for vampire fans due for release in October
A new urban fantasy, perfect for lovers of all things vampire is due to be released in October by Solaris Books.
Redlaw, by prolific fantasy writer James Lovegrove, tells the story of the battle between vampires and humans as they struggle to coexist.
They live amongst us, abhorred, marginalised, despised. They are vampires, known politely as Sunless.
The job of policing their community falls to the men and women of the Sunless Housing and Disclosure Executive – SHADE. Captain John Redlaw is London’s most feared and respected SHADE officer. But when the vampires start rioting within their ghettoes, and angry humans respond with violence of their own, even Redlaw may not be able to keep the peace.
Especially when political forces are aligning to introduce a radical answer to the Sunless problem, one that will resolve the situation once and for all…
