Since Londinium, Taras and Theron have gone their separate ways. One now roams the Spanish countryside, feeding on robbers and bandits, while the other hides in a cave on the slopes of Mt. Vesuvius, experimenting with his newfound powers. Neither has thought much about the other over the last eighteen years.
But Baella, the ancient renegade, has plans for the pair, and her plans don’t involve letting the two live out their lives in relative peace. Through her treachery, they are reunited in Pompeii, but not even Baella can stop the coming cataclysm.
Powerful forces are rising in the world of the Bachiyr, and Taras and Theron may find themselves caught up in something much bigger than they can imagine. That is, if either of them survive the mountain’s fiery anger.

~My 4.75* Review~
Disclaimer: I received a free advanced copy of 79 A.D from the author in exchange for nothing more than an honest review. All thoughts and opinions expressed in this review are entirely my own.
79 A.D is a continuation of Mr McAfee's Bachiyr series, if you haven't read the other books in this series then I strongly advise you go and get book 1; 33 A.D; and book 2; 61 A.D; and read them before going any further!
As expected 79 A.D continues with Theron and Taras' Bachiyr adventures. It too sees the return of Ramah, Herris; sorry Headcouncil Herris! There are some new characters too, some who are quite likable some that you just want to die already!!
The plot is fab and I was hooked from the beginning. Mr McAfee has some interesting ideas and twists throughout, and I loved reading who each one played out. This is one author that I'm unable to second guess what's going to happen next.
Mr McAfee's writing style is fantabulous too, he's not afraid to be mean to the main characters and I love how the Bachiyr are depicted as cruel, blood thirsty demons not sparkly lovable creatures! The plot moves at a good pace; for me there was no slow parts; no where I felt like skimming over or skipping a page or two. The details given are enough to enable my mind to conjure up a very clear image of the scenes and characters, and to enable me to feel a part of the story too.
79 A.D was well worth the wait and I wasn't disappointed, that said I would have liked it to have been a bit longer, but all good; no sorry; all great things come in small packages!!! :)
In conclusion 79 A.D gets a huge 4.75* rating from me!!
So if your looking for a GREAT vampire series the The Bachiyr novels by David McAfee should be right up your street. See below for the other books in this series and other books by Mr McAfee too.
Thank you to Mr McAfee for allowing the chance to read and review 79 A.D early!
(Coming soon will be my reviews of 33 A.D, 61 A.D and After: Taras and Theron / Beyond Jerusalem)
