Lady Dorn by Sean Hayden is set in an alternate steampunk world where vampires rule. Lady Dorn is a former member of the imperial guard and made a noble by saving the emperor’s life. Growing weary of the court and still aching for the loss of her husband, she retires to her airship home. Unfortunately the persons responsible for the attacks on the vampires all those years ago comes back and starts killing again. Lady Dorn is called upon to stop them.
This short story is a great read. It’s a lot of fun, the good guys are super sympathetic and the bad guys are truly evil – the kind readers love to hate. The world is super intriguing and the story is fast paced. I highly recommend it.
