The Offspring (Children of Cain #2) by R.J. Craddock


I received the first book in the series free from the author. I liked it so much that I had to go buy this book.


We know from the previous book that Gwen killed Dennis Keller and then took off on her own with no real hope of finding Raven. A search party is started and they almost catch her but she evades them. As she continues on through the mountain, she ends up passing out because of lack of food and warmth. A vampire comes across her and after biting her, realizes that she’s a Wiccan or a witch. He takes her back to his Lord in the mountain fortress.

The vampire Lord, Legion, is pleased with the new arrival. She is strong willed and young, only even when she first arrives but turning twelve in a few days time. The lord likes his girls young and without any womanly curves on them. At dinner one night, he tricks her into marrying him and she doesn’t even realize it until it’s too late. The ring can’t be taken off and she can’t use her magic to harm him. Through the rings he can control her and she hates it. She fights as much as she can.

A new vampire arrives on the scene and falls for Gwen. He does not want her injured or manipulated in anyway. They share of love of music and Angelo is instructed to teach Gwen how to play different instruments.  They spend an hour together each day and soon realize they love each other. They open their minds to each other and they see everything in the others mind. Angelo promises that he will be there to protect her.

Eventually Gwen is able to escape the fortress with a fairy’s help. Later that night, Angelo arrives to where she was and they start a life together. It isn’t long before she starts having her dreams and premonitions again and knows that something awful is going to happen to Raven, herself and Angelo. But she pushes it from her mind and doesn’t realize it’s come to fruition until later that day when things go horribly wrong.


The first book was good. This one is even better than the previous one. There is a lot of action, adventure, magic and other magical creatures. We learn about the Children of Cain and the “true” bible for them. It’s a great book to read if you love the paranormal, supernatural and a hint of romance mixed in.
