    About DanDavis


    1. I write science fiction, fantasy and historical fiction stories.My main interests outside of fiction are science and history so it s no surprise that my stories tend to involve them I have a passion for prehistory, the ancient history of Greece, Rome, Persia and the cultures all around them and am particularly obsessed by medieval Europe I am a husband and father and I live in Essex, UK.I love books of many genres but particularly those that are full of imagination and the most important thing of all is a good story, well told History is probably my greatest passion, because that s where all the best stories are So any genre with a historical setting grabs my attention Bernard Cornwell, C.J Sansom, Patrick O Brian, Ken Follet and so many others.But I love sci fi as well The scope and the adventure and imagination of it Frank Herbert, Azimov, Le Guin, Heinlein, Iain M Banks The Dune series is probably my favourite thing of all time And I really love The Stars My Destination by Alfred Bester.I also love fantasy, mystery, thrillers and combinations of them all And I m open to anything else My website is dandavisauthor

    1. Vampire Crusader follows the adventures of young knight Sir Richard of Ashbury who battles the terrifying William de Ferrer throughout history.The story is vivid and gripping, and you find yourself enthralled in the world the author has created. It is obvious a great deal of research has gone into the historical elements of the book and this only adds to its authenticity. Such characters as King Richard the Lionheart (who until know only existed as Sean Connery in my head!) are brought to life a [...]

    2. This is one of the more interesting vampire stories I've had the chance of experiencing. Usually vampires are seen in a demonic light, especially if set in the past, but this flips it on its head. The powers that the reader knows to be vampiric are seen as Christlike and holy by some of the characters. I liked this a lot. It felt realistic, just like the setting. Being a history buff, I enjoyed how real it felt.On the subject of the powers, I liked how they were handled in the novel. Vampirism i [...]

    3. I love historical fiction and author, Dan Davis didn’t let me down. His book, ‘Vampire Crusader’, kept me on the edge of my seat. I felt like I was right there in the action.The plot was good, with plenty of action, deceit, and the coming of truth. There were plenty of twists and turns. The characters are strong and sometimes surprise the reader.I highly recommend this book to history and vampire lovers!I was provided with a free pdf copy, from the author, in exchange for an honest reviewu [...]

    5. Great bookA great book about knights, vampires, and a brother struggling with the knowledge that he is chasing after his brother that is pure evil. All of the characters are very well described and I would recognize them if they walked down the street. I recommend this book and I am going to buy the second book right now!

    7. 1190 CE. Richard Ashbury is the youngest son of the late Lord of Ashbury and he is a knight. Returning from a night in the woods Richard finds nothing but death at his brother’s hall. His oath to avenge the murdered men and women compels him to follow the murderer into the Holy Land. Here he fights in the Third Crusade with King Richard the Lionheart.However, the horrors of the war against the Saracens are nothing compared to what the future has in store for him.First of all I want to thank Da [...]

    8. When the author approached me about his book and told me it was historical fiction, I jumped right one it, historical fiction is one of my favorite genres…and then I saw the title when ordering the book and was tempted to walk away the word 'vampire,' came across and I was like:I've had enough of these bloodsucking characters to last a lifetime.But I made a promise and when I make a promise, I keep.So I read itd just like that I was hooked. These weren't the glamorous vampires that we are so u [...]

    9. Extremely interestingThe Crusades are a fascinating event in history. Lasting far too long and causing far too many deaths of innocent people along with the warriors. This story revolves around the death of an entire family and the Crusades with vampires tossed in. The vampires are not the sparkling type but fierce warriors who find if they ingest small amount of blood they heal and are faster than ever for several days.Historical fiction is interesting because it tells us what happened but adds [...]

    10. A Tale From The Past.This book came as a real surprise! Not what I'd normally go for but it turned out to be a great read. Dan draws you into the story from the first page and from then onwards you can't put it down, as you always want to know what happens next. With that said, time to move on to book two and find out. Surprisingly good, so five stars.

    11. Another interesting take on the vampire mythos. I've always enjoyed my fiction with an historical flavour. This book certainly has that and it is bkended in rather well. I was a little disappointed with the mechanics of vampirism and vampire progeny being glossed over. The protagonist held my interest and I'm about to start the sequel. Recommended.

    12. A FINE TALE OF SOME KIND OF VAMPIRE LIKE THINGS IT ISHello, this is a very interesting and entertaining story about vampires, I think. I haven't quite figured that out yet. Blood drinking yes. Other usual stuff, not so much. Good stuff. Thanks.

    17. Posted originally on my blog: The Writer's InkwellLet's be frank. I'm not one of those people who particularly likes or even understands the appeal of reading books that are set in the middle ages. As much of a history buff as I am, that era of time just never really appealed to me for some reason. So when I was offered the opportunity to read about vampires during the dark ages, I thought it would be an interesting read, because in a way, it pushed me out of my comfort zone. Turns out my disint [...]

    18. It was a fun and quick read. You feel transported to the time of the crusades. You understand the brutality of the time, without cloaking it in fantastic whimsy. The portayal of vampires is atypical, which is refreshing after so much sexy, sparkly gobblegook that inundates the genre. Well worth the read and I look forward to the sequel.

    19. Wow! This book takes the vampire genre away from the soft core romance so many have veered toward and plunges the reader into a blood-soaked world of brutal violence. Our hero, Richard of Ashworth, is on a revenge quest for justice for his brother's murdered family. The action takes place during The Crusades and Davis skilfully mixes the terrifying with the historical, which I loved. The pacing is great, with so much tension as Richard faces one challenge after another in his pursuit of his enem [...]

    20. I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.Paranormal authors need to take note of Dan Davis. The vampires of Vampire Crusader are not sparkling or oversexualized, nor are they invincible with corny weaknesses. The whole paranormal aspect of the book inserts itself gradually and naturally into the historical setting, making it an fantastic mix of historical fiction and fantasy.
