ABOUT PENGANTIN SEORANG VAMPIRE
Pengantin Seorang Vampire (PSV/The Vampire's Bride) is a dark fantasy erotica romance novel. PSV follows the story of Sir Armand and Amerlind.
Sir Armand is a 900 years old vampire in the form of a 30-year-old man. His time in this world is almost over. But Sir Armand wishes to live for another 100 years. Plus, he also has to save his younger sister’s unborn child. To achieve his goals, Sir Armand must find a bride and make love to her. According to the vampire’s bible, Sir Armand must marry a human. In fact, the vampires' shaman, Saturn has already chosen a bride for him.
Amerlind is a sassy but yet innocent and naive human girl who is chosen to become Sir Armand’s bride. The vampire clan invites Amerlind to the vampire’s mansion at the beginning of the story. They tell Amerlind that the mansion is given to her by her late Auntie who recently passed away. Amerlind is delighted. She always dreams to live in a huge mansion like a fairy tale princess. But to become the new owner of the mansion, Amerlind must stay there for 90 days. Since Amerlind wants to become the new owner so badly, she instantly agrees with the rule.
Amerlind meets Sir Armand on her second day at the mansion. To Amerlind, Sir Armand is very handsome, dashing, and charismatic. They instantly fall in love. But at the same time, Amerlind meets Ryam.
Ryam is the villain and antagonist of this story. He was once Sir Armand’s shadow. When Sir Armand became a vampire, Ryam was separated from him. At first, Sir Armand and Ryam were BFFs. They always do things together. But suddenly, a beautiful fairy named Scarlet entered Sir Armand’s life. Sir Armand and Scarlet fell in love. Ryam was totally forgotten. Ryam was not happy with this. He raped Scarlet and she got pregnant with his child.
Scarlet died after giving birth. Sir Armand was not happy with this. He tried to get rid of Ryam by trapping him in an underground cell. But Ryam escaped. Ryam swore that he will not let Sir Armand be happy. He harmed all the girls that Sir Armand loved. He killed them one by one.
Now, Ryam wants to kill Amerlind. So Amerlind is not safe in the mansion. Will Sir Armand be able to protect Amerlind from Ryam? And Amerlind did not know that Sir Armand is a vampire. Can she accept him for who he is if she knows the truth?
MY REVIEW OF PENGANTIN SEORANG VAMPIRE
PSV is the most erotic novel I’ve read this year. This novel is fun, entertaining, and enjoyable to read. It is hilarious and good for light reading. I also think that PSV is a very chic and romantic vampire romance novel. I like that the author includes fashion in her writings. PSV is like Vampire Diaries meets Hotel Del Luna.
I like Sir Armand’s character. He is cool, funny, erotic, horny, but also romantic and loving. Plus, I like his charisma and enigmatic aura. He is also another morally grey hero.
I think Sheisbell is very creative in her storytelling and world-building. I also like the way she creates her characters. All of the characters in PSV are good enough to make readers engage in the story.
I rate this novel 9/10. And I would highly recommend this novel to fellow bookworms who like vampire romance and dark fantasies. I believe PSV will be a good book to read during this Halloween season.
But since PSV belongs in the erotica romance genre, this novel is not suitable for those who are under 18. This novel has a lot of adult content and erotic sexual scenes. Again, sorry teenagers. You guys have to be 18 above to read this novel. Besides teenagers, I think PSV is also not suitable for those who are not open-minded and cannot differentiate between reality and fantasy. If you guys are not open-minded enough, please take my advice and stay away from this novel. Don't try to offend yourself.
Since PSV is a very enjoyable read, I believe this novel is chic enough to be adapted into a movie or drama series. Therefore, I decided to include a fan cast in this review. Not let’s check out my fan cast for Pengantin Seorang Vampire…
MY FAN CAST FOR PENGANTIN SEORANG VAMPIRE
I wish the movie or drama version of PSV to be an all-Asian setting. So I’m going to fan-cast Asian actors and actresses for PSV.
THE MAIN CHARACTERS
#1 IU AS AMERLIND
Amerlind is a sassy yet innocent and naive human girl who is chosen to become Sir Armand’s bride. She’s also a free-spirited and open-minded kind of person. Amerlind always dreams to live a life of a fairy tale princess. The author describes Amerlind as a pretty and petite girl with fair skin.
I believe Hotel Del Luna’s IU is perfect to play Amerlind. Like Amerlind, IU is also sassy, pretty, petite, and has fair skin. I definitely can see IU as Amerlind when I was reading this novel.
#2 REMY HII AS SIR ARMAND & RYAM
Sir Armand is a 900 years old vampire in a form of a 30-year-old man. He is handsome, tall, masculine, and very manly. He has dark hair and fair skin. His eyes can change color – from blue to green, from green to blue. The author portrays Sir Armand as a very charismatic, enigmatic, and mysterious man. He has a strong aura.
I think Marco Polo’s Remy Hii will be suitable to play Sir Armand. Like Sir Armand, Remy is also charismatic and manly. I believe Remy has the same charisma and aura as Sir Armand. Plus, Remy is a very versatile actor. He can channel all kinds of roles. I’m sure he will carry Sir Armand’s character well and make it a phenomenon.
Ryam is the villain and antagonist of the story. Ryam was Sir Armand’s shadow. And he has the same features as Sir Armand. Except his eyes is yellow in color and his skin is darker. Since the author makes Sir Armand and Ryam look alike, I think it will be cool to have Ryam’s character play by Remy Hii too. This will be a good challenge for Remy. And it will take his acting to another new level.
#3 YOSON AN AS FAIZ
Faiz is Sir Armand’s best friend and brother-in-law. He is strong and fierce, but yet cool and a loving husband. Faiz is the leader of the vampire’s army. Faiz loves his wife, Carmilla dearly. I believe Mulan’s Yoson An will be perfect for this role.
#4 HAN SO HEE AS CARMILLA
Carmilla is Sir Armand’s younger sister and Faiz’s wife. She is a 400 years old vampire in the form of a 21-year-old girl. In the story, Carmilla is expecting and she is desperate to save her child. She annoys Sir Armand a lot. Carmilla is beautiful, seductive, and sluttery.
I think South Korean actress, Han Soo Hee is the most suitable to play Carmilla. I can see her in Carmilla’s character.
#5 LANA CONDOR AS SANTINA
Santina is a kind-hearted and friendly vampire girl. She is kind to Amerlind. They became best friends. I think To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before’s Lana Condor is suitable to play Santina. I can see Lana in Santina’s character. Yeah, Lana will be perfect for Santina.
#6 LEE SUNG KYUNG AS SCARLET
Scarlet is Sir Armand’s first and former lover. She’s a beautiful fairy who came to earth just to be with Sir Armand. Scarlet died after giving birth to Ryam’s child. Towards the end of the story, the author reveals that Scarlet is actually Amerlind’s ancestor.
I think South Korean actress and model, Lee Sung Kyung is perfect to play Scarlet. I can see her in Scarlet’s character.
