    One thought on “Eternal Vigilance”

    1. Reviewed by K. Osborn Sullivan for TeensReadTooA century ago, the vampire Tynan Llywelyn grew so weary of his existence that he sealed himself in a crypt deep underground and cast a spell that he thought would allow him to sleep forever. But he was denied eternal slumber. He awoke after only one hundred years and was shocked to find that the world had spiraled to even lower depths than he could have imagined. He found that humans around the globe were ruled by a technologically advanced group ca [...]

    2. Before vampires sparkled but after they were soulless monsters existing to prey on virginal girls in diaphanous white gowns, there was a time when the vampire was a tortured romantic figure. A Byronic hero who did not enjoy the benefits of vampirism but considered it a dread curse. There's still remnants of this figure in modern vampires but its heyday was a long time ago. A distant mist-enshrouded time when the economy was good, Goths were brooding loners rather than perky scientists on NCIS, a [...]

    3. Vampire fiction usually doesn't interest me at all, and I picked this up hesitantly at the recommendation of a mutual friend. Needless to say (based on the five-star rating) I was pleasantly surprised. The first in what I hope will be a successful series, "Eternal Vigilance" avoids the typical vampire cliches and sets up characters and plot well for future installments. It starts off somewhat slowly, but the pace continues to build rapidly throughout, drawing you in and leaving you wanting more. [...]

    4. Originally published at Risingshadow.Eternal Vigilance: From Deep within the Earth is the first book of the Eternal Vigilance series in which beauty, horror and gruesomeness meet each other with an explosive and unstoppable force. It's a powerful beginning to an excellent vampire series that will most likely be considered a classic in the near future.I have to mention that I'm glad I had a chance to read this vampire novel, because it's something different. It was a pleasure to read this novel. [...]

    5. When I know a book is going to be part of a series, it has to be pretty darn good for me to consider forking out for future instalments. Unfortunately, this book doesn’t work so well as a stand-alone novel, and that was disappointing.Basically, Eternal Vigilance is a vampire Fantasy novel set in 2111. Tynan, a vampire who created and led his own religion, has been asleep for a hundred years. After letting down the vampires who followed him, when his belief in his own faith crumbled, he cast a [...]

    6. When Tynan wakes up after one hundred years of a self-induced rest, the world is a different place; everything the vampire once knew has been obliterated by a war raging for as long as he's been asleep. An evil empire called the Tyst has taken hold of society and all its technologies, and its ruthless leader Cardone has plans to take his wicked reign even further by bringing forth a heinous vampire god called the Vicinus, threatening the lives of both human and vampire. When Tynan is reluctantly [...]

    7. This is undoubtedly one of the most beautifully written books I have ever read. Gabrielle finds words of such magnificence that you hardly notice that nothing much happens as you read. I mean about 50 pages into this book you get two blood-drained humans, one immortal reunion and much contemplation by the protagonist. Granted, some of that contemplation tells you the background of the story but mostly it's emotional rambling. I'm not saying this to put you off the book. Really, if you have a lov [...]

    8. Set in year 2111, a century after Tynan Llywelyn spelled himself to sleep forever, poor man (vampire actually) found himself awake despite it all, and worse, awake in the middle of a war. Like some readers, it was a little hard to get into at first, but perseverance will pay off. He is such a character to read, and sometimes I feel like stabbing his friend Seafra dead myself.If you are wondering why Tynan wanted to sleep, the book tells a good background story while moving forward in future, whe [...]

    9. The more I read this book, the better it got. Tynan's internal struggle within is gut wrenching. The despair and loneness is at times overwhelming. For an Immortal to be isolated from his own kind, by his own kind is heart wrenching. Tynan's humanity is his weakness, but now when the answers lie within him, his humanity is one of his greatest strengths. Will he loose his sanity or finally find peace? Gabrielle brings all the emotions to the forefront with a lot of questions, and you will want to [...]

    10. Excellent first book in the Eternal Vigilance series. Beautifully written. Meant to be savored and not merely read. Gabrielle's descriptions of a post apocalyptic world inhabited by mortals and vampires in a struggle between proponents of magic and those of technology appeal to all senses. It is a must read for all fans of fantasy and horror literature. Highly recommended.

    11. I didn't find anything really wrong with the writing itself, though it could've been better edited. However, I didn't bother finishing this book because it didn't draw me in. The story was kind of boring, to be honest. Perhaps if so much time wasn't spent inside the narrator's mind and more pages were used describing actual events I would've liked it better.

    12. My first Gabrielle Faust book but certainly not my last. By the time that I had finished reading the first chapter I knew exactly what my night had in store. Wrapped in a world filled with detail and such attention to each character in the story I felt as if I was drowning in her darkened vision. I would definitely recommend this dark tale.

    13. its deffinettely alot like edger allen poe because it is not a novel so much as poetry its a very very good book
