Krystal Lawrence’s RISEN II: THE PROGENY
Francis Barclay, the vengeful and bloodthirsty vampire resurrected from the dead after 200 years in Risen, has once again returned from the ashes--and this time he's not alone! Working his slow and agonizing way back to Alder Lake, Barclay is determined to save Lorna, the vampire child he accidentally sired during his last revenge-fueled visit to town. Kurt Dale, the womanizing detective blamed for his mistress's death during Barclay's murderous rampage, is once again in hot water with another woman. This time he does not have his best friend and partner to help bail him out trouble. In fact, there is a new detective in town who wouldn't mind seeing Dale take a fall. Risen began the tale of Francis Barclay's return to Alder Lake to avenge the centuries old murder of his family. In this spellbinding sequel, Barclay is determined to save his progeny. Kurt and his wife Amanda are unaware that Lorna, the daughter they love, was made vampire by Francis Barclay all those years before. While they realize she is wise beyond her years, and at times a bit peculiar, they do not know their child's true nature. When last we left Alder Lake, seven year-old Lorna was waiting patiently by the window for her blood-father's return. Her wait is now over. She has inherited Francis Barclay's luminous glowing eyes, as well as his taste for blood. Alder Lake is once again plagued by murder. Only this time, the suspect will surprise everyone!

The “Risen” books may remind readers of the SOOKIE STACKHOUSE NOVELS by Charlaine Harris or Stephenie Meyer’s TWILIGHT series, but Lawrence reaches farther back for inspiration in the undead genre. She calls her novels “vampires for grownups,” in the manner of Bram Stoker’s DRACULA, the most famous bloodsucker of them all.
The main similarity of the RISEN novels to Harris’ and Meyer’s books lies in their rich potential to be adapted into the kind of theatrical or television films that can’t miss in attracting hordes of dedicated fans.

This book is the sequel to Risen. The minute you take in the cover, you will start to turn the pages and the book won't let you stop. You'll find yourself at the edge of your seat and the end of the book before you know it. The bad thing about the book is when you get to the end, you still want more. To me that is the sign of a good book. You're left wanting more. The author takes you through a web of terror, horror, lust, love and even a little humor. You will never know what to expect. Enters, Francis Barclay. This time he's out to save his offspring...The Progeny. Some of the characters from the previous book are in
this one along with new characters. The author keeps the plot interesting.
This was one fantastic read and you will have one question during the book. Will Francis be able to do the impossible? I would recommend this book to everyone, especially those who love horror of any kind. I'm hoping for more books from Krystal Lawrence. .
I received a complimentary copy of RISEN II THE PROGENY from the author, Krystal Lawrence and Pump Up Your Book for my view of the book.
I would give this book 5 STARS.
