Set against a dystopian urban backdrop, BLACKTHORN is a dark, complex and multi-layered Gothic paranormal romance series about eight individuals fighting to overthrow the oppressive human-led regime that has blighted their lives.
Primarily based around a polluted, over-populated, rotten core of a locale, Blackthorn is the district where the ‘third species’, such as vampires and lycans, are forced to live. They’re given the dregs in terms of location, provision, opportunities and rights whilst being ruled by the iron fist of the more privileged humankind.
Dark, dangerous, unpredictable, but with hidden depths, the Blackthorn district is a physical representation of many of the anti-heroes that inhabit it. It’s also the ideal backdrop for the intense forbidden romances that become the catalyst for the revolution this oppressive world needs.
Blackthorn isn’t a series for the faint-hearted. It’s gritty, sexy and, at times, violent, so sits firmly within the adult PNR genre. But if you like your heroes edgy, your heroines willing to fight back, a complex overarching story and a new twist on an established subgenre, Blackthorn might be the series for you. Best read in order, each book builds on the previous one as the couples elicit change in the world around them.
Thank you so much for hosting me and Blackthorn today, Clair. 🙂
