STEPHANIE BURKHART - WOMAN IN HORROR!

Stephanie Burkhart is my Woman In Horror today! Stephanie also writes under the pen name of SG Cardin. Stephanie has quite a few books up on Amazon in a number of different genres and sub-genres. She writes horror, science fiction, paranormal romance, and children's books.

Her Moldavian Moon series is very intriguing, and, to me at least, represents her finest work. Below is a book description and two reviews for her book The Wolf's Torment(Moldavian Moon Book 1). I couldn't choose just one review so I had to have two. 



Book Description
April 30, 2011
It's 1865 and Moldavia is a country nestled against the shores of the Black Sea. Lady Theresa travels from Austria to this country that's haunted by tales of vampires and werewolves. She's going to marry the Crown Prince, but she harbors her own unspoken secrets.

Prince Mihai has just returned to Moldavia to discover he's a witch. He's intent on being a good husband and modernizing his country, but he must find a balance with his supernatural heritage. His best friend, Viktor, accompanies Mihai and marries Mihai's sister. In an unfortunate twist of fate, a werewolf bites Viktor.

Viktor's transformation threatens everyone around him, including his wife's safety and Mihai's happiness, but he's especially dangerous when he's near Theresa. Can Mihai save his family from Viktor's lies and deceptions?

    5.0 out of 5 stars A new twist on werewolf tales May 11, 2011
    Format:Kindle Edition
    Ancient heritage and modern technology collide in the dark, tense tale The Wolf's Torment by Stephanie Burkhart.

    Mihai Sigmaringen, crown prince of Moldavia, returns from university to face an ailing father, an unwanted fiancée, and the political quagmire of trying to unify competing principalities into one country. A child of a witch, Mihai struggles to balance his supernatural heritage against multiple, mundane details required to bring his country into the modern era. The story begins with a breath-stealing carriage chase that ends with the death of the queen and the revelation that despite its modern veneer, old terrors still live in Romania. The pace never lets up as Mihai struggles to take on his father's royal duties with help from his sister, Sonia, and friend, Viktor Bacau. Complicating his duties is the arrival of his fiancée, Theresa, and a werewolf, who has marked Victor to be his next victim.
    .
    Once the threat is uncovered, Mihai realizes he has mere weeks to learn to wield the power of the witch--or watch those he loves be destroyed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Completely glued me to the pages April 30, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Wow! I absolutely loved this book. Witches, werewolves, vampires, royal scandals, family secrets, romance, and a dramatic twist. I was completely glued to the pages; so engrossed in the story I felt as though I was there with the characters through every scene. Ms. Burkhart is a visionary, taking a theme that has been overwritten (for the most part) and making it unique and new again..

There is so much tragedy and so many twisted revenge plots. All the secrets and lies are exposed at once; well, almost all of them. One must be kept hidden in order to keep one of our characters alive. How much grief can one family handle?

The ending wraps up everything nicely and leads you into the next book in the series, Twilight Over Moldavia.

******************************************************************************

Now, if you're like me, this book appears to have it all. It does have it all! Start out with this one in the series and read Stephanie's other books. You'll be glad you did!

  1. TABLOID PURPOSES is what it started for her -- thank you Blaze; this is very cool you featured her. Check out Nanos in Tabloid Purposes: Book Five; when you see her do her stuff as her own name to what you see as Cardin you never guess it was the same author unless you realize S.G. Cardin is she went by in The Army You see Cardin and Carol both in the same issue -- the author who helped establish Tabloid Purposes and the author who set the tone for The Ethereal Gazette.
