Review of Dark God Descending by Tony-Paul de Vissage

All grad student James Tucker Upchurch wanted was to earn summer credit on an archaeological dig to Central America…and to marry his fiancée, Shannon. All Semris wanted was to escape the monotony of a millennia-old life, and the burdens being a demon king, and the son of the Mayan God of Death, have placed upon him.

For five thousand years, the misplaced Dark Lords of Hell have been trapped in this world, ruling the Mayan city of Nikte-Uaxac. While elsewhere civilizations rise and fall, they and their subjects remain unchanged, until Twenty-first Century intruders appear, stealing from them their most precious possession, the Emperor himself…

About the Author:
Tony-Paul de Vissage is a Southerner of French Huguenot extraction, whose first movie memory is of being allowed to sit up late and watch the old Universal horror flick, Dracula’s Daughter, on television. He was scared sleepless--and has been paying his parents back ever since by writing vampire novels.

A voracious reader who has lived on both US coasts and whose personal library has been shipped more than 3,000 miles, Tony-Paul has read hundreds of vampire tales and viewed as many moviesHis Internet address is A Splash of Scarlet,


5 / 5

This isn't the first book I've read by this author and I have to say I am very drawn to the writing style.  The characters appear to you like you were sitting right there with them, as they're pulling you into their world.  Tony-Paul makes the story so interesting you don't want to stop until you've reached the end.  Dark God Descending was a delightful mix of cultural history, romance and paranormal.  A great read!
