Publisher's Summary

Five audiobooks and more than 20 hours of vampires, witches, and New Orleans Voodoo fill this complete urban fantasy boxset. Because you can't stake a heartless vampire.

Book 1: Bloody Hell

It had been almost a century and a half since I last encountered anyone from the Order of the Morning Dawn. They were religious fundamentalists with the dual goal of eliminating vampires and witches. Being both a vampire and a witch, I was the embodiment of everything the Order hates. Their first attempt to eliminate me failed. Thanks to the fact that my mentor in the craft was also a necromancer. When they burned my heart they didn’t kill me. They unwittingly completed a spell that tied my existence to the soul of one who took my place in hell. Now, I’m heartless, literally. Not having a heart has some advantages. It means I’m pretty resilient, especially when it comes to wooden stakes. So long as the soul bound to my existence remained in hell, I was virtually invincible. But, the Order figured it out. They hope to redeem the soul who was damned in my stead. If they do that, I’ll meet the true death for sure. I have to capture the one damned in my place before the Order manages to liberate him from perdition. If they free him, I will die. I have to go to bloody hell.

Also included are:

  • Book 2: Bloody Mad: A Vampire in an asylum? Like that's going to end well...
  • Book 3: Bloody Wicked: Taking on a horde of demon possessed vampires? Time to get wicked!
  • Book 4: Bloody Devils: We were the terrors of New Orleans. And humanity's only hope.
  • Book 5: Bloody Gods: I've always been the hunter...now I'm the hunted.

Confusing at times but entertaining:)

I listened to all the books in the series separately and then re-listened as a box set - and I still liked it, which is the best recommendation for the series, I think:) But to give you a more detailed opinion, I'll partly cite myself - so here it is:

Book One - Bloody Hell
On the one hand, it was a really nice listen, one that kept me going on without much disappointment or irritation; on the other, I did not feel an urge to listen to the second part immediately after finishing the first... Two things killed the curiosity in me while listening: one, the vampire lore itself - the amount of information felt excessive and slowed the dynamics of the plot. Secondly, I felt rather indifferent to Mercy, the main heroine - I neither liked nor disliked her, her cruelty and mercilessness didn't move me at all, and she reminded me more of a naive child that hadn't yet been taught how to control emotions and impulses rather than a monster she's supposed (?) to be. But, the plot itself was quite interesting, some ideas will probably be developed later on (there's much potential there), also some of the secondary characters are very well written and the ending does make you want to find out what will happen next.

Book Two - Bloody Mad
Definitely better than book one. I still don't know if I like Mercy, but the whole bunch of new characters is an interesting and very well written crowd. Not only do they complicate Mercy's life but they also provide some really hillarious scenes, with the wacky kind of humour I like. The plot itself is fast, with Mercy locked up in an asylum, her psychiatrist trying to persuade her she is schizophrenic, and a new demonic danger in store for us, surely to be further developed in the following books. All this makes the book definitely more engaging than the previous one:)

Book Three - Bloody Wicked
The demonic possession of vampires is in full swing and Mercy seems to run against time. If she doesn't manage to figure out how to stop it, no-one will, and the world as she knows it will end. But the task is difficult as hell, and there are new enemies she has to face. Again,the plot is fast, there are quite a few nice twists and turns and the characters are fantastically written. It's definitely a character driven story, with quite a bit of sarcastic humour that adds life to it.

Book Four - Bloody Devils
In book four Mercy is still trying to figure out how to stop demons from possessing vampires, how to control her destiny, how to deal with Moll, and at the same time facing an even more challenging enemy. Legion - a demon being one in so many... The concept is not new, but it's very masterfully executed here, allowing Mercy and her weird sisters to show off a bit:) Again, characters are a definite strength of the book; they are complex, three-dimentional, real...

Book Five - Bloody Gods
The last book in the series, bringing the solution to everything that has been happening so far, is both satisfying and... disappointing. Satisfying in that all the threads, all subplots get their solution, all our questions are answered, all doubts explained. Disappointing in that it all kind of seems too simple; after looking for so long Mercy finds the solution almost by accident, and everything works out well with no big obstacles or mishaps on the way... But overall it's a very nice closure to Mercy's adventures.

The greatest strength of the whole series is the way characters are built and developed - they are full bodied, complex individuals, ambiguous at times, with secrets and hidden motifs... They surprise the readers now and again, they give us a headache sometimes when we try to guess the reasons behind their actions... This is what really kept me listening to the series:)

Narration by Ms Hazen is great throughout the series. She adds life to the books, the voices of individual characters match their personalities and the pace of her reading is OK. It's a great interpretation of the series.

And one more thing: with how the final book ends, there's room for some more of Mercy Brown and her friends for the future...:) And I wouldn't say NO to meeting them again...:)

What a ride!

The Legacy of a Vampire Witch is a cleverly written and well-crafted urban fantasy containing some dark elements. As soon as I started the first book, I was hooked; my attention was totally captured and held through the very end of the boxset. Theophilus Monroe is a talented author creating a fascinating world with colourful and multi-faceted characters. The series premise is unique, dark, and especially interesting. The storyline is rich, entertaining, and exciting, with enough surprising twists to keep you guessing and on the very edge of your seat. Mercy Brown is a competent, capable, strong, and clever vampire witch, a rare creature. At Nineteen-years of age, her destiny was forever altered when she contracted consumption. Desperate not to meet her deceased mother and sister's fates, and with the aid of her witch trainer, Moll, she agrees to become a vampire. Later, she faces numerous challenges and hindrances, including treachery, battling deadly supernatural creatures and forces, and so much more. I definitely enjoyed the ride!

Kelley Hazen did an excellent job with the narration, breathing life into the characters and making the story even more engaging. Legacy of a Vampire Witch series is a fantastic listen with no dull moments. I'm highly recommending the series.

Excellent Vampire Witch Stories

Theophilus Monroe has written five creative stories featuring a vampire witch. I enjoyed this omnibus which told Mercy Brown's story. The stories were convoluted and humorous. The characters were dark, complex, and amusing. Each book builds on the one before it, so although book one started a little dry, it was necessary to set up the world building and provide some history. There was some limited use of foul language in the tales. Kelley Hazen's narration was excellent. Her oration was entertaining and added to the story's playfulness. I was given a free copy of the audiobook and I have voluntarily posted this review.

Awesome set

These were well written books and the storyline was inventive. World building was great. The narrator brought the books to life and made them enjoyable to listen to them. I would highly recommend the audio version of the book and if you like reading definitely pickup the regular version. I received the audiobook version as an ARC and this is my honest review.

4.5 Stars - Great Boxed Set

Theophilus Monroe has done a great job with this series and I thoroughly enjoyed having all of the books together in one collection. Each book was filled with great character work and story lines. The Narrator did a fantastic job in breathing life into this series. I found this series to be just as fun to listen to as it was to read...maybe even more fun.

I received an ARC and Audiobook of this collection and I am voluntarily leaving my honest review.

A vampire witch- an epic mortal undead adventure

Received as an audio review copy from Story Origin, this is an honest review. Narrated by the wickedly brilliant Kelley Hazen gives this already colorful series with intriguingly eccentric characters a deeper, realistic edge. Mercy already had a complicated life of a gifted witch living in 1892 and dying of consumption... or at least would have if not for her coven and a odd, mysterious vampire called Nico changes her life by turning Mercy into an immortal vampire witch. Through five books, Mercy learns to navigate the bizarre and beautifully confounding world of what it means to be a vampire: not an easy feat when the list of blood is a constant urge to fill. Then there's the obsessive group Order of the Rising Dawn and their desire to destroy vampires and witches alike. A fiery, witty journey, giving both witches and vampires a gritty, dark view that's wondrously memorable. Highly recommended.

A 'Bloody' Good Listen

Bloody Hell

We start off with how Mercy Brown, a witch, became a vampire witch and how she doesn't have a heart - literally, so she's very hard to kill.

Unfortunately, her little brother didn't fare too well in that deal as her soul in now tied to him in hell.

Plenty of action and sass. And a betrayal at the end leaves Mercy's brother residing in her which causes no end of trouble.


Bloody Mad

Mercy unknowingly drinks infected blood which lets Edwin loose and sends Mercy mad and she ends up on a bloody rampage. The result - she ends up in an asylum. There she meets Nyx, or Nickie as she's known in her own series.

We meet Cain, the first murderer who is now a doctor and runs the asylum.

Mercy plots her escape with the help of an unexpected person.


Bloody Wicked

The infections are increasing, Mercy doesn't know who to trust anymore. She heads out to New Orleans to get an object which is supposed to help stop the infections. More surprises are in store for Mercy and a betrayal which shatters her.


Bloody Devils

Mercy, Haley and Julie find out that Asmondus is still alive and has inhabited another body and he wants to join forces with the trio, but are his intentions true or is he after something?

The Order of the Morning Dawn are hot on their trail too so they are trying to evade several foes at once whilst trying to stop Legion, who is infecting the vampires to clone himself.


Bloody Gods

The climactic conclusion of Mercy's story is fast paced, again more betrayals - will the Weird Sisters win against all the odds stacked against them?


These books are amazing, great characters and storyline. Kept me entertained.

I loved the narration with the audio effects.

Fun and entertaining

I have to admit that this set started a bit slow for me, but it slowly drew me in, and then the action and adventure kicked in and I was hooked. I loved Mercy, and her feistiness, snark and humor. All the other characters were great, too. Fantastic series that I highly recommend for anyone who likes vampires, witches, werewolves, demons and other supernatural phenomenon.

The narrator took me a little while to get used to, like the story, but she really suited the story.

Super

The full story of Vampire Witch Mercy Brown is a pleasure to read. I love to read Theo's books as his folk lore and ability to tie in the mythical with the modern world. Time flies when you read these books. Superb

Great series

I love Mercy she’s so witty I giggled most way through listening. She has to find a way to kill the demons who are infecting humans with a virus that allows demons to possess vampires when they drink the infected blood. However there’s only Mercy and a few friends to take down a legion of demons and as Mercy said demons , devils and d1ckheads oh my.
