John Hamilton has succeeded where many in the "vampire" genre have failed. He has crafted a fast paced action/adventure/horror novel with characters that you actually care about. Price and his supporting players leap off the page, and draw you into their struggle. The action whirls around these people and you are swept up in the twisting plot with them, which makes the story much more thrilling. In a fairly unique variation on the traditional vampire theme, Price is at odds with his vampire nature, and longs to redeem his soul. Not in a whiney-teen-angst-vampire way, but in an actual commitment to redemption and sacrifice. Night Touch is a very enjoyable read, and the gripping story kept the pages turning. This is an excellent novel, and I look forward to more from this talented author.

No sparkly vampires here! Hamilton's tale is chock-full of action, with a very cinematic feel. At times I could almost see scenes unspooling on a big screen. Not wanting to create any spoilers, I found the segments in Wallachia to be some of the most fascinating.

Action adventure? Check. Dark and tortured love story? Check. Vampire blood meals? Blood dripping in abundance. Plot twists "Pulls" the reader's attention deeper into the book. This book will make your next trip to the dentist much more traumatic than would normally be the case. Highly recommended.

With all the sparkly, teenage vampire romance movies these days, it's nice to read a novel that gets back to a vampire's roots: deep, dark, and gothic. Christopher Price, the hero of the book, has to overcome a dark past, an uncertain future, and a really colorful enemy in order to live out his life in peace. It's non-stop action, and layered with themes of redemption and sacrifice. It's a great read.

Hamilton places an interesting twist on the vampire genre. The characters are unique and reasonably developed. It generally was an interesting and enjoyable read.

However, I was somewhat disappointed at the ending of the book. It is difficult to describe without spoiling the read for others. Let's just say I was not expecting the change in environment and percieved it as a relapse into the old vampire style of Braum Stoker.
