“We have to be very careful, as those who age so slowly, not to fight upon past battlefields. In that, and maybe only in that, are we superior. To hold a grudge for a human lifespan, that is one thing. To hold a grudge throughout the whole of our lives, that would be an unlivable, untenable existence. So, we do not fight on past battlefields. We air our grievances as plainly as possible. We found, after centuries, we could live no other way.”
— Salter, The Chronicler
As zombies roamed, the earth went quiet. It is as if every critter knew that the only way to stay safe was to lay silent.
Rise and his coven were running out of fresh blood to feed on. With only one human – albeit pampered beyond belief – at their disposal, there wasn’t enough food to go around. He must find other human survivors if they want to avoid succumbing to the blackness of oblivion.
When the human survivors he rescued were infiltrated by Warwolves, an ancient order of vampire hunters, Rise soon realizes the danger he brought upon his kind. With the full intent to survive, Rise must purge all threats to his vampire race.
The world, although decimated, is ripe for rule. If he wished to set history on a new path, he must triumph — starting with the rise of one individual.
Will Rise triumph?
Will he fall victim to the brain-dead that abound?
Or will the Warwolves succeed in finally ridding the earth of his kind?
Find out for yourself in “Rise of One”.
“Rise of One” is the first installment of the Blood Brute Series by Irish award-winning and best-selling writer Dixon Reuel.
In this gripping page-turner, readers will:
– Come alive as every twist and turn take you on a brand new path towards a damned world filled with famished vampires and ruthless zombies

Wow, sounds amazing right? I don’t know about you, but I am a huge sucker for horror and dark fantasy stories about paranormal beings such as vampires or zombies. Never would I have imagined such an amazing story that includes both beings!! This book grabbed me hook, line, and sinker.
Here’s my review!!
My Review –
What an utterly fantastic paranormal Post-Apocalyptic story, containing both Vampires and Zombies as the main species. From the very first chapter I was dazzled by Dixon Reuel’s beautiful writing, and intriguing carefully crafted characters. I simply could not put this book down!!
As we begin, we find out that the human race is dwindling. Rise and his coven of vampires are safe in their compound, or so they thought. We follow Rise as he ventures outside of their compound in search of survivors we discover more about the current state of the world and who the leading factions are. With the threat of an ancient enemy growing ever closer, the WarWolves, Rise makes decisions for his coven that bring us an exciting and edge of your seat story.
Will Rise guarantee the safety and survival of his coven, or will the zombies and WarWolves take over and destroy their existence? Guess you’ll have to read Rise of One and find out for yourself!
