Coming Out by G D Ogan...

Coming Out
Book 3 of Immortal Relations 
by
G. D. Ogan


Ogan's insights into the powers of the immortal vampires, along with fresh takes on the complex inner workings of their existence provide an intriguing experience for readers. 

In this story a novice shape-shifter wolf meets a beautiful hybrid vampire. Good vampires set up a new coven in Southern Canada to monitor a regime intent on changing America into a dictatorship.


EXCERPT:

In this excerpt from the book an investigating reporter has had help from a relative to write a story for his news blog exposing vampires as the ones who helped stop the invasion of Russia by Communist China to gobble up mineral rich land:

"I interrupted, 'Sir, I just had a random idea.'

Everyone turned to look at me, while I turned to look at Fred (our new shape-shifter wolf friend). Fred just smiled at me...I could tell we were both thinking the same thing. 

I continued, "Vlad, I don't know if what I'm about to say are my own original thoughts or if I'm picking up what Fred is thinking...the way he is smiling at me I'm not sure it isn't the latter. But what if Fred were to be able to shift into his were-wolf personal for just an instant, then shift back to tell the reporter that his friends did not like him releasing a story that vampires were responsible for what THEY did. That his kind and vampires are mortal enemies and he would be offended if credit were given to vampires for what he and his kind did to stop the terrorists and the war?

I continued, 'This would be a smoke screen' for the truth to hide behind. But it might frighten the reporter into silence or force him to delay publishing his article while he tried to refute that werewolves rather than vampires might have been responsible for all those actions. After all, I don't think he has actually seen a vampire and he would have seen Fred shift into a werewolf. My first 'fictional novel' is ready to go to the publishers, a publishing house that Grandmother owns, and I'm almost finished with the second book. It contains all the action that are the basis upon which the reporter is saying vampires were involved. If we can get both books printed with publication dates well before the reporter's article, he will be seen as plagiarizing already published works of fiction." 


REVIEW:

5 Stars The best vampire novel I ever read. 

This novel rates number one in vampire writings, and close to the top in science fiction. Ogan is an excellent writer. There is an occasional misspelled word, but it does not detract from the quality of the book. Ogan shows a deep knowledge of warfare and weapons perhaps from his service as a major in the USAF. The killing of others is handled very well and realistically. It is heavy on sexual content, but again done well. I shared the book with a friend who came back to me and said, 'I think this writer has overdosed on Viagra." I laughed. 

I also liked the writing in first person since it showed each person's involvement and participation in  the main theme of bringing the story to the front. It is not necessary to read  the books in order unless you are one of those people who prefer it that way. The books stand alone. I read the second, the first, and the third. Loved all three and look forward to number four. It depicts vampires as friend of humans rather than monsters. It also shows a great love for animals."

  1. Thanks so much for allowing me to be on your Blog with the third book in my Immortal Relations series! "Immortal Relations Coming Out" is relatively undiscovered but those who have read it have enjoyed both it's Paranormal-Romance aspect as well as it's social commentary, as well as military action and Sci-Fi component! One lady said she could almost hear the Earth "thundering past the spaceship!"
