This is the first book out by the new publishers that i have been doing some agent work with. So thought i would post some info and see what you guys / girls think of it.

Possession Legacy

Llewellyn, the first Prince of Wales is a legendary warrior who seems invincible in battle. His struggles with the Normans and his prowess on the field of combat seem almost superhuman. There are many rumours and even his own brother cannot understand the reasons for his strength. Llewellyn travels to Carmarthen where he learns of Merlin's prophecy and his own ultimate heritage, to become a vampire. Whilst fighting a Norman knight he is bitten by a female mosquito. The mosquito is crushed underfoot by the horses of the combatants and spends the next 500 years trapped. In the present day there is a tremendous storm which alters the course of the river and releases the mosquito. She is awakened and begins her quest to procreate and establish a brood of her own. Sarah and Lynette are both bitten by mosquitoes and become strangely linked. The characters that form the basis of the story all find themselves in Wales at a hotel and their lives become interwoven as the story unfolds. Sarah discovers her own vampire heritage and also her links with Lynette. The bloodlust she has inherited from Llewellyn and the needs of the mosquito brood mother lead Sarah on the rampage of killing that seals her ultimate demise.

A chilling, modern tale of life, betrayal, Humanity and vampires. A Story that begins in the 13th century swiftly accelerating into modern times and grips the reader from the outset.
This story unlike your run of the mill Vampire novel does not rely on the past and the natural superstition of that era. It moves swiftly from past to present day Wales and intertwines you in the everyday lives of various families going about their daily normality.
The author throws you into a mix of family emotions and troubles experienced by so many modern families while slowly seeding the birth of a modern vampire and the devastation do come..
This is an exceptional novel by a very skilled writer. Making this book a must read for fans of the Horror genre and a recommendation for anyone who has never tried that genre but always wondered where's a good place to start.
