Daisy Ozouwain weaves an inventive and entertaining novel examining the slave trade by using African supernatural beliefs transferred to the New World. Her story is more than a vampire tale; it brings to light a missing portion of American history, as there’s very little literature about the slave experience just before being captured. The symbolism in her book is striking.
The vampire genre gets reinvented and it’s delicious.

Hell To Pay puts a fresh and unique twist on the familiar vampire tale. Ms. Ozouwain elevates the genre with her setting, background, plot twists and most of all, with her courageous and bad-ass protagonist. Just when I was pretty sure nothing new or interesting could be done with vamps, this author proved me completely wrong. If you love horror, fantasy, historical drama and most of all, supernatural bloodsuckers, READ. THIS. BOOK!
I found the combination of themes: African history, the Undead, Vampires and American history very interesting. This novel is as good as any I’ve read by “established” fantasy and mystery authors. Can’t wait to read the next book to find out what happens to the character Kenya.

Fantasy defined and redefined

For my first fantasy in more than 10 years. Hell to Pay is worth every single minute! I literally did not want to finish the book! The mixture of African folklore, vampire lore and the unexpected angels and...and I don’t want to give away too much; it’s so thrilling! You never know what is coming next! Ozouwain’s writing really transports you into that universe that she created and you’re able to experience her novella on a whole different level. I highly recommend this book and looking forward to the second part!
A promising first novel, A Hell To Pay made me travel through time, space and fear!!
I’m hungry for more 😊

The story grabbed my attention from the first line on. I was sad when I reached the end of the book, and cannot wait for the second part to become available. Daisy Ozouwain creates truly vibrant, memorable characters with interesting characteristics. The story flows well and the plot intrigues. Worth a read!

This novel beautifully combines multiple cultures and history in one story. I am not a big fan of the vampire genre but the characters and mysteries that surround the story are so interesting and unique that it pulls you in regardless! I would love to learn more about KENYA!!

Love the Cover Art.
