5* Review before release:
Review 5* by Readers’ Favorite Romuald Dzemo:
Blood Renegades by Rosemary A Johns is a classy urban fantasy with stunning and memorable characters, a story that features vampires poised against each other in a deadly conflict. Meet Light, an eccentric character, rebellious and passionate. He is considered a traitor and about to be burned at the stake in fourteen days. Liberty is not the kind of interrogator anyone would love to have, because she shows no mercy, and she will be facing someone who has just the very thing she’s been brought up and trained to hate — treachery. But there is a problem: Liberty can’t help feeling an attraction for Light.
The dynamic force behind Rosemary A Johns’ novel is her ability to create characters that readers can connect with. I am not a fan of novels with werewolves and vampires, after the Twilight Saga, but I care about the characters in this novel because of the greatness of the conflict into which they are pulled. Characterization is just perfect and it shines through in the way Light’s values contradict those of Liberty. The story itself is sweet and dark and the author writes with confidence, provoking sensations in readers that will make their hearts beat even faster. The plot moves at a steady clip, with surprises buried at many turns. I enjoyed the confident writing with descriptions that feature rich content and arresting images. Blood Renegades stands out on many levels, especially the author’s masterful use of contrast and humor. This is a story that will stay with readers long after they are done reading.
Review from SLH Reviews:
Light is to be burned at the stake in 14 days. It’s all just a power play, a game of chess. He’s always done what he could to save his family, even if they aren’t always loyal to him. A Rebel Leader to the core. Liberty, ruthless interrogator, has more mysterious layers than an onion. I went back and forth trying to figure out her agenda. This classy urban fantasy is unlike any you’ve read before. Johns has a gift for uniqueness, her imagination clearly limitless. I love some of her characters; and love to hate the rest. The storyline is intriguing, it’s seriously painful waiting for the next book to come out. Each book from the start has been better than the last. If you want to fall in love with a rebel, I’m recommending you start here!
When vampires are slaves and humans are acting like monsters, it’s a dangerous game to love your Mistress.
Light, the bad boy vampire of the Blood Lifer world, is hunted through paranormal London. The predators? The humans who were once his prey.
When Light’s enslaved, he’s bought by his enemy’s daughter. Now he’s caught between breaking under their cruel training, or battling to hold onto the rebel inside. If he can remember the vampire he once was, he can fight to uncover the conspiracy behind the slave ring and free his family.
But to do this, he must face his worst terrors and risk everything – even the woman he loves…
Blood Shackles is the compelling second installment of the supernatural suspense series REBEL VAMPIRES written by award-winning author Rosemary A Johns.

Review by SLH Reviews:
As a reviewer and an avid reader there are 5 stars for review. One star is incredibly horrid, boring or just thoughtless writing. We’ve all read, or at least tried to give a shot to these books and tried not to blow our brains out in the process. For me, two stars maybe had the potential of a decent storyline but they didn’t do it justice or the beginning held potential and then the writer skips all the important parts and you’re lost as to what you’re reading. Three stars is decent writing but you just couldn’t get into it. Someone else with different tastes may love it though. Four stars is a good storyline and decent plotting, even a strong voice from the author and good characters. Five stars is when you wait on bated breath to find out what will happen next; you have trouble putting it down knowing you’re going to be a zombie the next day. Where you fall in love with the characters, laugh and cry with them, rage and smile with them. Five Stars means that you’re pulled in, a part of the action going on. It becomes your reality. The authors voice so strong, you feel every tear they shed and every laugh they belted out.
Blood Shackles: Rebel Vampires Volume 2 by Rosemary A Johns is my five star read. This novel was gut twistingly intense. Telling his story with a notebook entry, Light is a rebel Blood Lifer who has abstained from drinking human blood for 50 years. He’s captured and turned slave, or so they think. Grayse is the youngest daughter of the Cain family who is doing the capturing, slaving, torturing and killing of Blood Lifers. She picks Light, renamed Shadow by his captors, because he’s not broken. Grayse has no clue what really goes on in the dark cells, the humiliation and degradation, the horror and the pain, as she starts to work for the family business. There’s so many secrets and the suspense will drive you wild. The twists and turns to this incredible story will give you whiplash. I just couldn’t put it down. This Standalone novel left me drooling for more Light!
You have to read this series folks or you will miss out on the authors strong voice that just pulls you in, her emotion tangible. You will miss the love that Light has to give. You will miss the powerful, heart-rending rollercoaster that jumbles all of your thoughts and feelings and then puts them back together again piece by bloody piece. Yes, I give this second installment a five-star rating and cannot wait for the next book to come out!
A rebel vampire, a red-haired devil, and a Moon Girl battle to save the world—or tear it apart.
Light, a bad boy vampire of the Blood Lifer world, has been hiding in the shadows of paranormal London since Victorian times. His only company? A savage Elizabethan Blood lifer. And he’s keeping a secret from her that breaks every rule.
London, 1960s. When a seductive human singer tempts Light with a forbidden romance, their worlds collide. At the same time, Light discovers his ruthless family’s horrifying experiments. Now he’s torn between slaying the humans he was raised to fear, or saving them.

“INTERVIEW WITH THE VAMPIRE MEETS TRUE BLOOD”
Review by SLH Reviews:
The first installment of Blood Dragons, Rebel Vampire Volume 1 by Rosemary Johns is a very unique paranormal romance. It’s completely different from any I’ve read yet and it was certainly a pleasure reading this one. When a Blood Lifer is in love with a human who is now elderly and with dementia, it’s incredibly sweet how Light tries to bring back her memories of their life together. Though such a romance is expressly forbidden in this 1960’s London era where vampires are both predators and prey, it doesn’t stop this rebel Rocker Blood Lifer from falling head over heels for this seductive singer, Kathy. Ruby, the villain, is mentioned in this story as having been the one to turn Light into a vampire after having a long-term relationship with Light but not caring for him at all, that is until Kathy comes along. Though it’s a tragic love story, I still give 5/5 stars. This fantasy series is well written, the writers voice strong. The cast of characters are strong willed and will strive to achieve everything they set out to get, no matter the price. The book wouldn’t be good if you didn’t have villains and seemingly hopeless obstacles to overcome. Enjoy!
