Nathanial is a reluctant vampire. He was raised from a young age by Vincent, the cruel vampire that killed both his parents. Finally he escapes after years of captivity, but not before Vincent transforms Nathanial into a vampire himself. Vincent isn't one that lets go easily though and spends thousands of years searching for his 'progeny'. When he finds him in the small town of Kingsburg, he turns the town upside down in his attempt to bring Nathaniel to submission. It ends in the ultimate battle of good vs. evil, with some of the town coming to Nathaniel's aid and battling Vincent alongside Nathaniel.
One of the unique things about this book that makes it different from other vampire books is that it has a Christian theme to it. Nathanial hates being a vampire and he thinks he is condemned by God because of his nature. Throughout the book he battles with his hatred for who he has become and the growing love he feels for a woman...one that can never be fullfilled because she is married. However she develops a friendship with Nathanial after he saves her children from Vincent. She and her husband play a large part in the book and help show that through Jesus there is forgiveness and that God can use anyone, even a vampire, to do His will.
I cannot recommend this book enough. If you haven't read it, do so now. If I could give it more than 5 stars I would.
The book was captivating. I was drawn into the characters. Even within their mundane lives that were soon to be turned upside down, they had depth to them that really pulled you into their world.
The scenes were very detailed as well; some of which you wish there would be more left to the imagination, but it wouldn't be a horror story if it didn't have the gory details.
You can also see a divine influence throughout the pages. Seeing how the events turn for one particular vampire, you can see Someone else was very interested in these people's lives and survival.
Great read! Looking forward to the sequel.
Dance on Fire is a story told from multiple person perspective - a rather fabulous way of consistently keeping the reader in the thick of the action and diving into the many layers of each individual character. I enjoyed being a sinister, sadistic vampire who preyed on innocent children, the hardworking detectives trying to solve a string of seemingly unsolvable murders, and the house wife with more layers than an onion and an unwavering faith in the almighty.
The small town of Kingsbury, quaint and generally peaceful, has now fallen victim to a string of gruesome (and I do mean gruesome) murders. Detectives fight to solve the mystery, unaware that creatures of the night stalk those who dare to stray into the shadows, feed mercilessly, and pursue a vendetta waged centuries before.
But are these creatures we've come to celebrate as blood-thirsty, depraved and without morality all as bad as we believe? Or for that matter, are vampires the only cause for the slayings of the innocent?
Dance on Fire reserves the right to keep you guessing. With such rich and complex characters brimming with intense emotion and unwavering beliefs in right, wrong and justice, it's easy to fall victim to the intriguing plot. Once the action began and the unfolding of past events were teamed with the present, I was truly unable to put the book down.
I thought perhaps some of the insertion of bible referencing would annoy me but in the end it served its purpose and began to make you believe that everything had happened for a reason. With only one typo error in the entire novel, a well constructed plot filled with relevant facts without the over stimulation of information, and I truly believe I found (pardon the puns) a killer novel to really sink your teeth into.
It was almost too easy to rate this novel four and a half fangs out of five. I highly recommend this novel to anyone who enjoys reading the adult supernatural/horror genre.
The book is long and can be daunting at times, simply because of its length. There is a large cast of characters, many of which we just get to know before they come to their demise. Also, the book is written from an omniscient point of view, so we often see inside the heads of more than one person at a time. It doesn't distract, though, like head hopping might normally do. For some reason it seems to work and I think helps us have more sympathy for the victims. If you enjoy paranormal tales, you will like this book. Readers need to understand up front that the gospel is an important part of the book, but also need to be prepared for some graphic language and scenes that might not typically appear in mainstream `Christian' fiction.
