Ram’s book is partly My Familiar Stranger retold from his unique point of view with chapter insights from other significant characters. The story begins the first time he runs away to the New Forest at age ten, follows his recruitment by Black Swan along with his training to be a vampire hunter, and tells the story of the death of his first partner.
I haven’t read My Familiar Stranger, and whilst this can be read without having reading it, I do feel it would have been better to have read it beforehand.
That being said this was a great story of Rammel Hawking, who we initially meet when he is just a boy who has run away from home. Turns out he is a prince and an elf!
This story follows his journey of him joining the Knights of the Black Swan and it is told from his POV.
What I loved was how it was written with the Irish lilt, it made for a humorous read on occasions when Rams humour would shine through.
I think this is a series I want to go back and catch up on, as I loved Ram in this book, and want to read about him in My Familiar Stranger.
