Roh Morgon is my Woman In Horror today! Roh is not a run-of-the mill woman, and, hence, you should not expect her books to be ho-hum, same old-same old. Her first novel Watcher: Book 1 of The Chosen is 468 pages of majesty. Most authors when presenting their first novel tend to make them a tad on the short side. Not Roh. She understands a story is not finished until it is finished, regardless of the length.

This is not your typical Vampire tale. It is completely different. She makes the story and characters completely her own. The reviews for the books I have chosen to spotlight show this.

Watcher: Book 1 of The Chosen

Book Description

October 4, 2011
Predator. Killer. Monster.

The words echo in Sunny Martin’s head each time she looks in the mirror. Since the night she was torn from her car and drained of her blood, Sunny’s fear of the hungry beast within her is rivaled only by the fear of exposure.

Her lonely struggle to survive on the edge of the human world leads Sunny to the mountain peaks of Colorado where she meets Nicolas, the enigmatic leader of a hidden society.

Their passion, tainted by betrayal, violence, and murder, reveals a shocking truth behind Sunny's savage nature and drives her toward an agonizing Choice between her heart and the last remnant of her human soul.
5.0 out of 5 stars Move Over Anne Rice January 18, 2012

If you think there is nothing new, fresh and original in vampire fiction, you haven't read Watcher: Book 1 of the Chosen, the debut novel by Roh Morgon. I am not particularly a fan of traditional vampire stories, but I found this incredible book more engrossing than anything I have read in the genre in years. The reasons are not only the suspenseful and well written tale, but its potent underlying themes.

Sunny Martin is attacked and ravaged by an inhuman being who leaves her clinging to life and with an ravenous thirst for blood. In her half-human state, she determines that, for her beloved seventeen-year-old daughter's sake, she must allow the girl to believe her mother is dead. Yet Sunny's love for her child and her loneliness drives Sunny to stalk her daughter, hungry for whatever glimpses of her she can get. Five years later, when Sunny's granddaughter is born, the sight of the child's sweet face intensifies Sunny's longing, and the separation from her family becomes almost more than she can bear. Sunny flees the state, hoping to begin her life anew.

She meets Nicolas, leader of a secret society, whose love for her may be able to fill the void in her heart, yet to bond with him, she must make the Change that would destroy the part of herself that remains human and give up her daughter and grandchild forever.

I loved this book, not only because I was able to identify immediately with the heroine, but because the premise is so undeniably true: Love does not always conquer all, and true happiness cannot be found unless one is true to him or her self.

Watcher: Book 1 of the Chosen is a suspenseful story told with such skill I wanted to consume it in a single read. This is a level of skill and professionalism seldom found in first novels, and I predict great things ahead for this writer.

Move over Anne Rice, a new "Queen of the Damned" is born. 
See what I mean about how readers take to this great novel?

The Last Trace (The Chosen Novellas Book 1) is another super read, and the review I chose is from none other than Rena Mason, Bram Stoker Award winning author.

Book Description

April 18, 2013
Trace Pierre Tasman’s simple life as a mountain man in 1842 Montana turns into a living nightmare when a beautiful but vicious she-demon begins stalking him. The insatiable desire she ignites in Trace overshadows his dread of her brutal attacks, and as his attraction to her grows, he fears his only escape may be death.

The Last Trace is one of The Chosen Novellas, a series focused on the individuals within a secret society of powerful blood-drinkers whose violent struggle for dominance in 'The Game' threatens to spill out into the human world.

Length: 23,000+ words, 95 pages. Included in The Last Trace is an excerpt from the novel Watcher: Book I of The Chosen.
4.0 out of 5 stars Historical Vampire Romance August 22, 2013
I enjoyed the novella THE LAST TRACE. I don't read a lot of vampire romance, but I love dark historical fiction and this story fit into that category, so I gave it a read and was not disappointed. The author's detailed research of Native American history shined through in the story without overwhelming it. The landscape and character descriptions were also well done, I could picture each individual and their actions clearly in my mind. I thought the end was just slightly predictable, but overall it was a great read for an historical fiction vampire romance, and I highly recommend it if you're a fan of the genre.

Amazon bio:

Roh Morgon tends to keep her head in the clouds, whether they're clouds of her own making or those of others. When she does touch ground, she brings a little fantasy with her and puts it on the page for readers to enjoy.
Roh's childhood fascination with books eventually led to an interest in costuming and renfaires, where she learned how to handle swords, knives, and bows. She's hitchhiked across the country, ridden on the backs of Harleys, and driven a train.
Roh currently shares her home in the Sierra Nevada foothills with three mustang horses, two crazy herding dogs, and a very patient husband who wonders whether she'll ever have time to sleep again. She writes fantasy and horror for middle grade, young adult, and adult readers.

  1. Um. Wow. I just found your feature on me. I'm totally embarrassed and flattered and blown away by your profile on my work.

    I've been a bit out of the writing world lately due to personal stuff, but am finally getting back into the game. I'll soon be releasing another novella in the Chosen series, and the Watcher sequel, Runner: Book II of The Chosen, is nearly ready to send to my editor. I hope to release it by the end of the year.

    Thank you so much for featuring me on your blog. I'm honored to join the ranks of the other excellent authors mentioned here.

  2. No reason to be embarrassed, Roh. You deserve to be a Woman In Horror. I am glad to see you have more of your great work coming out soon. As for personal stuff, we all have that happen. That's why we write what we do.

    I am very happy to have had the opportunity to feature you on my blog. You write super stories and I owe it to my fans and readers to spread the word about them and you. Happy writing, my friend!
