2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By D. Salvagin La Deetda Reads VINE VOICE on May 26, 2011
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is most definitely a horror novel. I rarely if ever read this genre because I'm a wimpy romantic girl. I'm so glad I got over my hesitation!

Fernando the alien vampire along with his three comrades are tortured vampires from space. They don't know why they are on earth or even that they are vampires for their first one hundred years in Antartica. But in their efforts to chase away the humans at a scientific station they discover bloodlust and then look out world. Fernando struggles with a conscience but one of his buddies takes the high road and the other two succumb to total bloodlust.

This author has an amazing imagination. Her world is our world with the addition of the ripening and multiplication of vampires. Gresh is adept at showing the emotional conflict of her characters. This is not your sexy-romantic vampire book. This is true horror with lots of violent bloody scenes. We are not entranced by the characters we are terrorized by them. This is a story of how vampires are born into our world and the horror that is unleashed and the horror yet to be unleashed.

As much as I was sucked into the story and setting I did find the dialog to be stiff at times. Also I felt the emotions of the two humans involved with Fernando needed more development. We understand both in their initial attraction but they go from zero to 100 with just a couple of sips from the vampire. I just needed more of them toward the end. The other humans also needed more input in the plot.

Format: Paperback
This is a very freaky book! It gripped me from the first page, and it kept me rooted in place until I finished reading it. This is one of those books that kept me up all night. If you like vampires, horror, good writing, twisted stories, and lots of action and gripping ideas, then definitely read Blood and Ice.
