Caedis Knight is the pen name of two established fantasy authors Jacqueline Silvester and N J Simmonds.
Jacqueline and Natali met at London’s Young Adult Literary convention in 2017. Jacky had just launched the first book of her Wunderkids series, and Natali was there with The Path Keeper, the first book in her trilogy, so they were both new in the publishing world and became close friends.
In 2019 Jacqueline called Natali and said ‘I have a strange request. You can say no if you want to but I’ve always wanted to write a fun but smart paranormal romance series set all over Europe full of sexy characters with a sassy female lead.’ Natali took two seconds to think about it and said ‘count me in.’ One year later they launched their first series together – BLOOD WEB CHRONICLES.
Vampires of Moscow
Saskia de la Cruz is a Verity Witch – her only magic being that she can tell the truth from a lie.
As an investigative reporter for The Blood Web Chronicle, the biggest news outlet on the paranormal dark Blood Web, Saskia spends her days cracking twisted para cases hoping that someday, some case, will bring her closer to finding her missing sister.
In snowy Moscow drained corpses of illegal workers have begun to turn up, with hundreds more reported missing. When Saskia is sent on assignment to investigate an oligarch Vampire crime ring that might be behind the deaths, she plans to get in out of the city’s frozen grasp quickly…preferably with her neck intact.
But beautiful ballet dancer Konstantin Volkov and his wildcard brother Lukka complicate things. The vampire brothers have their own reasons for solving the string of murders, reasons that conflict with Saskia’s mission. Soon, Saskia finds herself enmeshed in the city’s glittering web of crime, passion, and violence, where truths and lies are one and the same.
With vibrant characters, page-turning suspense and steamy romance, this new series has been dubbed by early readers as “a fun crime-solving sexual adventure across Europe.”
