Cross is T.S. Worley’s debut novel in the paranormal and urban fantasy realm, delivers. It is a fresh, outrageous look at vampires and werewolves. Cross is the starting point of what is sure to be an exciting new series. This was a quick read for me. It flowed easily and I found myself completely immersed in the story-line. It is steeped in religion & lore and provides a complete history into the origins of vampires and werewolves.
The story is a first person narrative provided by protagonist David Cross. David, on the cusp of turning thirty, is a loner with a guarded heart. He is out hiking when a tragic accident changes the course of his life. David awakens and is thrust into a reality he didn’t know existed. I liked David. He is confident, even tempered, yet vulnerable, and willing to listen. He seeks the advice of others and is not easily led. Other characters such as Mouge, made the story compelling and believable.
After two thousand years, the vampire population has dwindled to a small group of women. During this time, the werewolves have prospered and increased their numbers while systematically taking out the female vampires. To the vampires, David is their salvation. To the werewolves, David means the end of mankind and he must be destroyed.
