Format: Paperback
Desmodus is a classic. Walker is going to be the king of the horror genre.

The first chapter was a little slow, unless you enjoy reading old classic styles of greats like Poe or Shakespeare.

After that, I couldn't put it down. The characters come alive and Walker's descriptive style makes the setting easy to visualize.

The only noticeable drawback was the evidence of several gramatical errors but the action is so intense that it is hardly noticeable.

At times, Desmodus can be brutally graphic and at other spots, as erotic as a romance novel. I never heard of the author before,

but I'll definitely be looking for more of his work. This is horror that can actually scare the reader

Format: Paperback
Desmodus starts off with a vivid description of Bogg's world as it has become narrowly focused on sound. In the first pages the author creates a sense of impending terror. This is horror at its best, delightfully gruesome, definitely not for the faint of heart. As the book advances, the reader is caught up in the mysteryof what is really going on. Who is this man Bogg and what is his connection to Desmodus? The reader almost aches with Bogg as he metamorphises into something other than human, yet there is fear too for what he is becoming.
Walker creates a world for the reader, oneof a species unlike any that has ever been imagined. He manages to weave history into the story so skillfully, the reader believes in these fantastical, vampire-like creatures but is not quite certain why.
Walker manages to draw you into this story until you are rooting for the people fighting against these evil forces and sitting on the edge of your seat to see what will happen next. The conclusion is satisfactory but realistic and makes you wonder what this rising new author has in store for us next.

Desmodus is a wonderful book. A nice change from the sniveling, romantic vampire stories that the market seems flooded with currently. Desmodus is violent, gorey, and frightening. I'm looking forward to the sequels!

What a great story! I'm looking forward to a sequel. Sex and violence in a gothic style that can't be beat. A combination of Poe and Playboy wrapped into one. Bravo!
