Before Twilight, Before Lestat, Before Dracula, there were...


Cassandra L. Thompson

Every so often a voice comes along that demands attention and respect of the genre and its reader...The Ancient Ones touches on...


...the poetic voice of Edgar Allen Poe, the world-building of Anne Rice and the fascination of Neil Gaiman.

S. Collins, Goodreads Review

With the vivid detail that Cassandra describes her world, it's easy to forget that The Ancient One is only a book and she hasn't transported you into her dark fantasy...

...the vampire novel you've been waiting for!

Marvin L., Goodreads Review

If you like historical accuracy, interesting and well-researched mythology, traditional vampires with unique twists, and Gothic aesthetics...


...this is the read for you!

Some things are not meant to die ...

When David stumbles upon a tragic young woman in a sordid Limehouse pub, he has no idea she’d recognize him as the last vampyre alive, nor that she’d be the one to pull out his story. Yet as he recalls his life from the sweltering vineyards of Ancient Rome to the cold horrors of Medieval Romania - as well as his tumultuous past with the mad and mysterious Lucius - he realizes she is much more than what she seems. 


Gothic horror and mythological fantasy blend seamlessly together in this thrilling adventure, breathing new life into vampire lore as it reveals its true origins. The Ancient Ones is a tale of myth, mayhem, and magic … with a dash of romance that bites.
