I just finished reading The House on Blackstone Moor by Carole Gill and even though the book contained many grammatical errors, the story was awesome!
Rose Baines is a young woman who has seen nothing but tragedy and heartache in her young life.
When she returns home from an evening out, she finds her entire family, mother, sisters and brother lying dead on the floor, their throats cut. They had been murdered by their father who also lay dead, after killing himself.
Rose goes mad and thus begins her frightful journey into a world of evil and corruption.
After a short stay at an insane assylum, she takes a position as Governess in The House of Blackstone Moor, where she falls in love, not only with the children but also the master of the household.
Soon, strange things begin to occur and Rose realizes that the children she cares for are not human. Neither are their parents. They are vampires.
Rose soon falls for Louis Darton, the leader of this cult and as their love grows strong, Rose, without her consent, is changed.
When evil comes to call, there is a great battle and Rose must decide if she she wants to turn back into a human, or become immortal in order to live forever with Louis and the children.
When the battle is over, and the children, whom she now claims as her own, get hurt, she gives them her blood in order to save them. She was also hurt badly but decides to become immortal so she can live forever.
The House on Blackstone Moor is a tale of destiny and true love and will have the reader anxiously waiting the second installment by Mrs. Gill. I for one home there is going to be one!
