She dazzle's you with her amazing talents.

My only complaint with the book is that the story's pacing could have been a bit better, it really begins to 'drag', around the last few chapters.
Kimmy
This novel apparently couldn't care less about plot or character consistency.

If Voice of the Blood was Jemiah Jefferson's Interview with the Vampire, then Wounds is most assuredly her Queen of the Dead. But where Voice of the Blood showed weaknesses typical of any first novel, Wounds showcases a writer who has matured, a writer confident in her talent and skills, unafraid to offend or shock.
Wounds picks up a few months after the conclusion of Voice, focusing on Daniel Blum, a supporting character from that novel. Nearly a century old, the vampire has never matured mentally or physically beyond his early twenties. Jaded, bored and depressed, Daniel spends most of his time seeking new distractions, a pastime which is becoming more futile by the day.
Such is his state of mind then when he encounters Sybil, an erotic dancer unique in that the vampire can neither penetrate her thoughts nor influence her actions. Entranced, Daniel begins a relentless and eventually successful romantic pursuit of the woman, who, although human, is far more vicious and perverse than he, exhorting Daniel to levels of violence excessive even by his standards. Such is Daniel's infatuation, however, that he consistently does her bidding, even when it endangers his life.
It was something of a surprise to pick up Wounds and discover that Jefferson had chosen to focus on Daniel, rather than Ariane, the heroine of Voice of the Blood. Arguably, Ariane's complex personality and personal conflicts would have provided more fictional fodder for the sequel. For instance, Jefferson could have leveraged Ariane's strained relationship with her vampire husband or her efforts to understand vampirism through scientific research to fashion her follow-up.

This book "Wounds" Is Outstanding! Jemiah's writing is still as refreshing and addictive as it ever was. If you enjoyed "Voice of the Blood" And have not yet read "Wounds" then I would highly advise checking it out. In this Book Jemiah, Yet again Brings to life your favorite characters from 'VOTB'In a Brand new City with a brand new story. It's a very well datailed novel that will be just as hard to put down as her other book. In this story Jemiah brings to life a new character "Sybil" She,Being the only Person who's mind Daniel Could not read, Becomes His new infatuation and ultimiatley his demise. I would HIGHLY recomend this novel to anyone with an open mind,who has the time to sit and read this book for a few hours.

After reading Wounds one has the urge to go into the street and see if there really are pale, glamorous, at times androgynous people wandering around whispering things and hidden desires into our minds... Jemiah Jefferson's book gives hope to those disillusioned by other tamer works. The book revolves around the twisted yet understandable relationship of Daniel...While favorites from the past book popup for guest appearances, Sybil, one of the truly most captivating characters I've ever read, leaps to the spotlight of the story. Scarred and extremely psychotic Sybil brings the inhuman side to humanity alive, a perfect compliment to Daniel's conflicting and struggling emotions. The engaging, sometimes shocking scenes add a layer of intensity and an overall chilling effect throughout. Along with rich descriptions, wonderful dialogue and fantastic narration Wounds is a joy to read not only for fans of Voice of the Blood or vampire stories but also for fans of well-written literature everywhere.

Jemiah outdoes 'Voice of the Blood' with 'Wounds.' In her second novel, we're treated to vampire Daniel Blum, who was sex and swagger in her first novel, but here his character is more fleshed out and more facets of his personality and emotions are explored. Daniel is a mastermind of getting into someone's head and detecting their thoughts, but when he meets former stripper Sybil, he cannot do that with her. I commend Jemiah for making Sybil a vampire's love interest who isn't your typical woman, but instead, tall and voluptuous, with a crazy sense of style. She's got many demons of her own, namely her relationship with her now-dead friend Sonic Ruth, and even though she claims to have murdered her, it's strictly from Sybil's dialogue, which makes it even more of a mystery. Daniel and Sybil utilize art as a means of shaking up the general masses and end up in a love-hate relationship where it's a constant power struggle, trying to see who could hurt each other more - and god, does it build up. Jemiah's prose is simultaneously lush and razor sharp, and just like 'Voice of the Blood', ...

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I would like to see Voices of the Blood and Wounds bound together in one big fat hardback volume. Voices is just a warm-up for what happens in Wounds. Every time I thought I could outguess Jemiah, she got there first. Hmmm, I thought, vampire-human sex. What about vampire-vampire sex? Boom! Then what about vampire-vampire HATE? Boom again. And could you please give Daniel a dominatrix? I think he needs one. Oh, yes, thank you. Sybil is absolutely awful -- that's why I love her. At last, someone that Daniel can't manipulate. Really, don't we need more women like that? And I loved it that Jemiah combined terrorism and art in the same universe. Awful, nasty stuff. My nose is turning up even as I type. That's how I know what a good book this is. Anything less, and I would not have reacted so strongly. Jemiah called the shots all the way through, and bringing Ricari back in at the end was wonderful, especially since he did spook the unspookable Sybil. I think Jemiah had lots of great fun making fun of the too-cool-to-care subculture, including poor Daniel, moving his scented bedlinens into that nasty abandoned warehouse. And the image of the German orgy, with vampires nipping away at Nazi necks, was -- sadly -- too good to be true.
