"V" FOR VICTOR STANDISH


THE LEGEND OF VICTOR STANDISH
By

BLURB:

Think TRUE BLOOD meets SUPER 8 meets THE ARTFUL DODGER.

Beware French Quarter nights.

Every city has its secrets. New Orleans more than most.

To walk its streets is to move through history : Lasalle. Orleans. Galvez. Lafitte. A street map is part time capsule, part history lesson. And all Death. She is waiting in every shadow.

New Orleans is the most haunted city in America where Voodoo was big business, slavery even more so, and no government official or newspaper dares to tell the truth.

No one talks openly of the misty figures seen walking along iron-laced terraces, casting no shadow. Of the shapes seen rising from sewer grates. And no one willingly visits the crypt of Marie Laveau at midnight.

Into this strange world arrives the street orphan, Victor Standish, from Charon's Greyhound. Charon has to keep up with the times ...

the End Times.

And the teen destined to be called the "Ulysses of the French Quarter" has come just in time for Hurricane Katrina, the End of All Things, and …

the deadly love of the Victorian ghoul, Alice Wentworth.



The Legend of Victor Standish
Roland, generously sent a copy of this book to me as a gift, a short while ago, after I mentioned that I would be interested to know the background of Victor Standish.
Well of course this solved my curiosity. I found his book a really enjoyable read and caught myself laughing at the underhand humour throughout the tale!
Victor is a legend, what else can I say!
With so many legendary characters to compete with he needs to be!
The book is packed full of heroes, some good, some not so good and Victor fights to fend off his and his friends foes, with the help of Captain Samuel Durand McCord, giving the really evil ones a little pay back!
A very cleverly written story, which has been researched well, Roland uses a unique way to present what is a legendary read.

Another one to put on my reading list! Thank you!

Lynn Proctor said...

the legend book sounds good--i remember reading a book that took place in new orleans and had much of the voodoo included in the story line--it was fascinating and scary

Roland D. Yeomans said...

Thanks, Ellise and C.M. I'm glad you enjoyed it, C.M. I am currently writing BEST OF ENEMIES through the eyes of Alice Wentworth. Katrina has devastated New Orleans. Supernatural death is stalking the only high school still open (one run by the Sidhe, the fae, for their own dark purposes.)

Again many thanks for writing of Victor, Roland.

Awesome review for Roland! I still have this book on my iPad and hope to get to it soon.

C.M.Brown said...

Thanks for stopping by Mimi. I am sure you will enjoy it.

C.M.Brown said...

This book has all the legends from history, as I said some good, some bad - Wild Bill Hickock, Mary Antoinette, Hitler just to name a few! I wouldn't call it scary, but it is very entertaining.

C.M.Brown said...

My pleasure Roland, I look forward to reading more legendary tales of Victor Standish.

C.M.Brown said...

Make sure you do Alex, it is a fun read.

New Orleans sounds fantastic and unbelievable for someone from the other side of the world. Blog on!
