Prince of MidWest
Expected Publication Date: July 15th, 2022
Genre: Low Magic/ Alternate History/ Steampunk
Cecil is a vampire desperate to find a way to redeem his soul so he can finally rest in peace. He’s told the way to redemption is to save the American Empire by finding the prince and putting him on the throne. The only problem? That prince was murdered eight years ago. Upon mentioning the dead prince to the royal court, Cecil is swiftly accused of being a spy and sentenced to an underground prison.
Ezekiel, a prisoner of the Château d’Oubli, has been merely surviving through the torturous politics of the prison. When an over-fashionable vampire appears amongst the tunnels and mines with a plan to find the dead prince, escape, and put that prince on the throne, Ezekiel sees his chance and volunteers to help Cecil escape the underground bastille.
Eager to get above ground and get back to his redemption, Cecil reluctantly joins forces with the sleazy Ezekiel. Together, with a team of convicts, and using mysterious earth magic found in the mines, they plot a breakout like none before them. No one has ever escaped the Château d’Oubli. Even if they did, revenge is a prison that follows its captives.
Add to Goodreads
Easily the most thrilling vampire read of 2022. Prince of MidWest is a spectacular novel with our main character set on redeeming his soul. A vampire trying to redeem his soul? You read that correctly. All Cecil wants to do is rest in peace and the only way to do that is to put the prince on the American Empire's throne.
Reading a novel set in an alternate history is such a fun break from the books set in our world. I love a good adventure, I love when it adds magic and mythical creatures even more. Cecil is easily a likable character whereas it may take you a moment to warm up to his new 'comrade', Ezekiel.
This is a read that you do not come across every day and readers need to RUN, not walk to read! And, if you're still unsure about this one, give it a chance anyways!
