The Might of the Coming Vril-Ya (The Watchers 3)


LGBT: Dr. Alexander Coimhead finds himself in Ludwikowice Klodzkie, Poland investigating the areas the Nazis once occupied. One site is called “Hitler’s Stonehenge.” Alex is convinced a link exists connecting these sites to occultism. Alex is working with Jacob Einer who is an agent of the Praesidium. When Alex’s boyfriend, Rafe, shows up unexpectedly, tensions are high. When the explorers regroup, they are still missing something in their research. Before they can find answers, however, they are attacked by “sstiga,” which is a type of vampire. What they don’t know is that there are other powers determined to keep Rafe and Alex apart. It doesn’t help that Rafe has secrets too. The group must band together if they want to survive.

This steamy occultist novella is a whirlwind of suspense and danger and can be read in just a few hours! Coming in at fewer than 100 pages, this book packs a punch. While it can be read as a standalone, some readers may want to think otherwise. Much information regarding the characters and their backgrounds seems to be missing when reading this book solo, and it makes for a confusing beginning. The scenes do progress very quickly though. The main villain is evil itself, the Nazis. Specifically, ones who studied occultism. The author does throw in a few historical details about the background of some of these secret societies. However, the conclusion of this book seems extremely abrupt, ending almost in mid-conversation, with many storylines not yet complete. While a promising read, it would be beneficial for readers to start the series from the beginning.
