In a vampire story it's important to make it easy for the reader to suspend disbelief. Patrician Lynne handles this well with an early hook that helped me sink into the story. I have a lot of empathy for the characters and rooted for their survival and success. Patrician Lynne is a writer to keep an eye on and I'd like to see more work from this author.
Following their lives after one of them was turned into a vampire takes us through their adolescence, college life, adulthood, getting married, and having children at least for the brother that is still living.
We witness the vampire trying to understand his brother and connect with his own fading humanity. And then the impossible happens, a young girl crosses his path and changes everything. Unfortunately vampires are hunted down and burned and eventually the vampire is caught.
This is where the book loses it's momentum. The story up to this point has been told from the vampires' point of view. It was clear and there was no doubt about the flow of the story. Then at the conclusion of the story we are given scenes that are confusing, uneven, with more than one point of view and no explanations, and no sense of direction. It was very unsatisfying because there was the feeling that the author got bored and had someone else finish it for them. This is the only reason I gave it a four star rating instead of five.
A great debut novel. Looking forward to what she puts out next!
