Combining the classic genres of horror and fantasy with historical events and the Canadian landscape, Cowtan creates complex stories rich with tension.
Cowtan’s writing has been called “impressive”, “raw and thrilling” and “stunningly beautiful”. Her debut Gothic Horror, Girl Desecrated, is an award-winning novel and book I in The Fergus She vampire gothic series. In The Fergus She book II, Master of Madhouse,she thrills vampire fans with a blood-letting, old-school Dracular in the form of Lord Gräfen.

Cheryl’s novels are for readers who love to unravel fast-paced, evocative page turners; enjoy plot-twists; relate to tragic but resilient characters; indulge in sultry scenes and take pleasure in classic tropes.

If you seek gut-wrenching suspense, this author is for you!

..The reader has no choice but to make the best of the situation, both enthralled and disturbed by this novel’s stranglehold on one’s consciousness. What a gut-wrenching pleasure to read!


Such a mix of energy, violation, revenge, hate, love, determination, and angst! All beautifully told.  I loved it. Recommended. Amazon UK reader
Sure to be a new Gothic classic. A heart-racer of a story, the action never stops.

The story is excellent, no choppy parts, well constructed and excellent Research: language, places, historical placing.

This is a superbly well-written story which captures the imagination of the reader and draws them in with (Cowtan’s) unique storytelling style and enticing narrative on the gothic era, mystery, and intrigue.  I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and will continue to follow this author – Tanya Writer


JANE EYRE meets BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER in this addicting Gothic Fantasy series!

Determined to escape her destiny as host to the beautiful blood-sucking vampire, Scarlett, Rachel wields Scarlett's demon-magic and accidentally launches herself headlong into another century, straight into the arms of Gräfen, Lord of the Vampires.

A two-hundred-year separation has not been long enough to cool Gräfen's desire for his sultry demon-wife Scarlett. So, when Gräfen finds Rachel in control, and Scarlett, the oppressed entity in the body they share, his lust turns into a predatory rage that fuels a campaign of vampiric torment. 

Held prisoner in a Gothic mansion and surrounded by a bedlam of servants, Rachel suffers Gräfen's gas-lighting seductions until her will begins to weaken. Gräfen is sadistic, but alluring, and Rachel's lifelong dysfunction is serving his game. As they begin to connect on a deeper, darker level, Scarlett grows envious.

 Can Rachel rally an army from the macabre mob in Gräfen's serfdom, or will she become eternally obedient to his voracious and unnatural demands?

And if so, will Scarlett allow it?
