5.0 out of 5 stars Kept me up all night!
This one will keep you up all night! Something's amiss in the north woods this winter and at the root of it all is a vampire, true to tradition at last, that is as monstrous as it is terrifying. I still get spooked every time I walk snowy country roads on these gloomy winter days. A terrific read!

1.0 out of 5 stars A bloody mess!
I downloaded this to my Kindle with great expectations. However, I found the book a mishmash not only of a lot of Stephen King and a bit of LET THE RIGHT ONE IN (meow, hiss, if you know what I mean), but a mess. The heroine is a chain-smoker. She smokes. A lot. And we have to read about it. You'd almost think Wells got money from the tobacco industry to include such...

Loved it!! FINALLY a real, non sparkling, non angst driven monster who breaks every social taboo and makes no excuse for being. What a trip!

I downloaded this to my Kindle with great expectations. However, I found the book a mishmash not only of a lot of Stephen King and a bit of LET THE RIGHT ONE IN (meow, hiss, if you know what I mean), but a mess. The heroine is a chain-smoker. She smokes. A lot. And we have to read about it. You'd almost think Wells got money from the tobacco industry to include such elaborate depictions of her habit. I thought it would pay off in some monumental way, but it didn't. There's also a lot of inappropriate giggling from this gal, which ceases to be character delineation early on, becoming merely annoying. Wells also includes a Steve King-like idiot savant character, one who can only speak one word, his name (sample dialogue: "'Fergus' said Fergus. 'Fergus.'"), but who can psychically see future events and other dimensions. If you're thinking of THE STAND'S slow but charming Tom Cullen (m-o-o-n, and that spells better book), well, so did I. If you want to read another what another, better writer's take on 'SALEM'S LOT, pick up Peter Straub's GHOST STORY.
