Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Too many contemporary urban fantasy thriller novels recycle the same old monsters. How about the spirit of long dead Indian chief? Instead of the usual contemporary dark fantasy hero or heroine, how about a young retarded woman in a hospital ICU? How about two children on the run on the streets of a big city for a contemporary paranormal thriller? Horror thrillers should stretch the definition of supernatural fantasy.

About the Author

Richard Stooker hails from the small Mississippi River town of Alton, Illinois. According to FATE Magazine, "the most haunted small town in America." Alton's history mixes legend and violence -- great lessons for a budding dark fantasy writer.

Richard's job history includes 30 years with a government social service agency, walking the toughest streets of St. Louis as a door-to-door cable TV salesperson, and delivering pizzas in and around Rock Hill.

I didn't think this was much of a horror thriller. It was full of horrific acts and details that I will grant you. The Native American ghost seems to possess Dewie and torments the main character with her own past the dangers her children face, but other than that to me this story was about abuse. The physical, verbal and sexual abuse towards women and children takes centre stage in this story and bringing that to a readers attention is commendable. Except it is also full of clichés about women in general and abuse.
Right up until one female character said: he had to hit me and I had to let him. That's when the story lost its sincerity for me. I also found it extremely irritating that the same character has a womb that kept on contracting with shame.
The last few chapters veer more into the horror genre and the entity shows a more demonic evil side and the initial concept becomes a little clearer. It wasn't my cup of tea, for me it just didn't gel right. I received a free copy of this book for my review.

Format: Paperback
Virgin Blood is not your typical thriller. Settings and characters range from the dark, crime infested side of St. Louis, the social network that tries to protect those caught in poverty and violence to the ancient past in the form of an exiled to "hell" Indian Chief from the great Native American urban center based in Cahokia Mounds, Illinois over 1000 years ago. The center of all this is a poor, ignorant, mentally deficient girl who has her whole life been the object of abuse of one form or another. Because of her horrific background, she is chosen by the chief as the last sacrifice which will bring him out of "hell" back into the world of people, ready to wreak further violence on an unsuspecting world. His plans go awry when the ineptitude of his violent agents, the caring and compassion of those who have learned to love and respect the girl, Janey, and Janey herself, who shows unsuspected strength through her love for her 2 little girls.

The characters are well developed and the plot is strong, drawing the reader forward. Even the more minor characters, such as Janey's parents serve a significant role and in the end are forever changed by Janey's sacrifice. There is also great attention to surrounding details, and those familiar with modern St. Louis will recognize the street names and areas of interest. Many of the various Native American and occult legends from the greater St. Louis area are also drawn into the story, adding interest above and beyond the central plot.

The main weakness is the dialogue, which at times seems a little forced. It does not draw away from the story, though, or the interest in the characters.

This book is a great read. I highly recommend it!

This book grabs you from the start. The knowledge of the author is vast, especially in terms of medical terminology. This by default increases the level of genuine fear as you continue on into the book. It's quite graphic in parts and very descriptive, dark and menacing. It is a good satisfying read that doesn't pull its punches. Find out for yourself, I dare you!

There are characters you read about who stay with you for a long time. Characters who find strength to do amazing deeds through sheer guts and willpower.
Janie is one of these characters. Beaten, abused, derided, there are only two things that matter to her more than life itself. Her children. The journey she undertakes to protect her children will move you to tears.
There is much ugliness in this novel. Much that is disturbing. But there is also much that will leave you cheering for the underdog. You feel her confusion, her goodness and her love. Pitted against evil she does not comprehend, Janie struggles to find a way to survive.
The supenatural elements, including the very strange Red Indian folklore, cast a shadow like a shroud across the story.
This book is surprising and, oddly for a horror story, inspiring.
I loved it.

Richard Stooker's writing is superb. He was able to upset and disturb me. He made me CARE. Janey's story is harsh - to call it sad would be a gross understatement. Yet, she retained her innocence and purity of soul and loved her children and was the best person she could be, despite all odds being against her.This is no 'light read'. This is a serious, heavy-duty, intense book. Domestic violence and hopelessness, drug dealing, and gang activity are involved. It was very disturbing, and I had to skim over some of the more disturbing parts. Humans can be more cruel to each other than any imaginary monsters could ever be. The paranormal aspect of the story was incidental to me. Janey, her daughters, and Marilyn. Odelia, Dewie, the incarcerated Michael, and even Janey's parents were the real players here.

I've loved horror books since my early teens, and that was quite a while ago now!

The authors painstaking attention to medical terminology in the early parts of this book really help to convey the confusion the protagonist is experiencing in her situation. The well researched scenarios and characters continue throughout the riveting story, which I had to finish in one sitting.

Not for the faint of heart, this supernatural adult thriller had me gripped from start to finish.
