Then this book (Vampcon) came across my path. I'm not the usual vampire enthusiast. Sure I dressed as one for Halloween in my youth and The Lost Boys is one of my all time favorite movies; but I wasn't really on the recent vampire bandwagon with all the movies and TV shows. But I needed a new book to read so I decided to give this author a shot.
To say it simply, this book is Incredible.
Action packed, lots of drama, comedy, suspense, backstabbing, you name it. Plus the characters are developed so well that I feel as if I know them. I finished the book in 3 days. The only reason it took me that long was because the more I read, the sooner I was done. I didn't want it to be over.
The action never stops. As soon as I thought I knew what was going to happen, I'm thrown a curve ball and the story goes somewhere else. I would finish a chapter and think to myself "ok just one more." 10 chapters later and I'm still saying the same thing.
To say the least, if your looking for an exciting adventure that keeps you begging for more READ THIS BOOK!
I'm not a vampire addict, but after reading this book, I feel as if I've been bitten
My only complaint is that there is no sequel. Well at least not yet. I hope the author decides to write one. I hope you check your reviews Mr. Inezian.
Let me first say that when I first picked up "VampCon" it was with, shall we say, some reservations.
Let's face it. Ever since John William Polidori wrote "The Vampyre" in 1748, we the readers have been inundated with every variation of vampire. (No, Bram Stoker wasn't the first, although "Dracula" is regarded as the best.) Vamps that turn into bats, wolves, and bears. Ones that could only be killed with a stake through the heart, had their heads cut off, or exposed to sunlight. Those who could only be warded off with garlic, a blessed crucifix, or for crying out loud, plain white rice. Lived in castles, tenements, and tunnels, driving hot-rods, or battling their ancient enemy, the werewolf.
Without going into more of a dissertation, I'll just say one could assume that there's not really a way anyone could vary the vampire theme more than it's been done.
And they'd be stone cold wrong.
This book is chock-a-block with "nevers".
For instance, I've never read a work in which the vamps (and there a lot of them) are all associated with various ancient houses, and are constantly enveloped in a power struggle to wrench control and influence from other families.
I've never experienced bloodsuckers that play scrabble.
I've never seen the pale-faced folk possess different powers that are unique to them, and based on their sins during their mortal lives (and you won't be-lieve some of these.)
And I've certainly never seen them regarding the killing of humans as being secondary to killing their own kind - and doing so in deliciously varied ways.
And then there's Jonathan Stoker. The story's hero, a regular old guy who's bitten and turned - and hates with a passion the woman who turned him.Read more ›
Jonathan tries anyway he can to get out of the city and up to Canada but no matters how hard he tries, Fate (in this case a blind vamp named Ariel) intervenes. He must attend. He is an heir to one of the leading families, it is possible they can bring down the new ruler if they all cooperate.
Against his leanings, Jonathan goes. His son found the invitation that Jon burned to ashes (Ariel's doing?) and is intending to meet him there. Bad idea. The "VampCon" as everyone is calling it is a trap. Brilliantly executed by Donnach McRory and his warriors. No one is meant to live. Some do and that's when the trouble really starts
Jonathan, his son, a very interesting shapeshifter called HJ and several members of other Houses band together to stop Donnall. Whether they do or not is the tale this book tells. If you are a vamp fan you will want to pick this one up. Very gory and quite well done.
