“Literally and figuratively, here be dragons…
This novel…uses its world as a scaffolding for…scenes of emotional tension.”
Kirkus Reviews 


 “The Eighth Dominion is a savage wonder…Julia Phillips Smith delivers a gripping, coming-of-age fantasy tale that is Martin-esque in its subversion of magical elements for brutal violence and political games.”

Melissa’s Imaginarium

 “I dearly love the main character in this novel…I was actually sad that I had to leave him at the end…Top that off with the fact that Smith’s story sparks your imagination while engaging your emotions and you have a novel that will stand alongside the greats.”

“Vampires that aren’t vampires.
Vampires that ARE vampires.
…the complexity of these two factions and the war between them, and how humans fit into it…
This love triangle has so many twists and turns…
Julia Phillips Smith skillfully weaves the threads into a beautiful tapestry of a story.”

A unique tale of vampires, sacrifice and love…
…Wales, 6th century AD…
Warriors march off to battle against invading tribes and bring home the spoils of war…
Women await with anticipation and dread the return of their loved ones..
the border between superstition and the supernatural was a thin line…
This first book in the Dark Ages Vampire Trilogy had its shining moments, especially the last chapters.”
 A O Bibliophile

“Julia Phillips Smith’s vampires are dark and ravenous,
monsters more in the tradition of the vampire as deadly, dangerous and bloodthirsty.
…A dark romantic adventure with…characters that stand up off the page to tell their stories. 
…An outstanding debut.”
