I enjoyed the book very much. There was something refreshing about reading about sensual anti-heroines that
stepped out of the shadows preying on human blood and indulging their sexual appetites.
I really enjoy reading books in this genre. Some people might say that this genre is overdone, and that there are way
too many vampire books out there to warrant spending your time and money reading another but I strongly disagree.
I think there are still gems out there worth the time and the money to read, such as this one.
This book has well developed characters and it is exciting enough that it just has you on the edge of your seat, turning the
page to find out what happens next. Paul Voodini does an excellent job telling a wide variety of vampire tales that are enjoyable
and it makes you yearn for a volume two. I really hope to see more of this author's work in the future.
Dolly Biters creates an alternative world in which vampires co-exist with humans. But they are very much confined to the nether regions, popping out to snatch victims and drain their blood. These vampires are all female - for reasons that make sense in the skewed world of Paul Voodini. And most are enthusiastic lesbians.
The book is a mix of novellas and short stories, and the range of styles is broad. Early in the book the stories are raunchy and violent. Later in the book things take a more lyrical turn, and the final story is a very enjoyable parody of Alice Through the Looking Glass, right down to the wonderful nonsense verse.
Voodini is a very good writer, with a lively style that just keeps you turning the pages. The world he creates is entirely original, but he does people that world with characters we are all familiar with. My favourite cameo was Sherlock Holmes. You will never look at him the same way again!
The horror genre is not my thing, so I was very surprised at how much I enjoyed this book. The characters were very well developed and I really cared about their troubles. The plots were imaginative and fun.
I really hope this is the first of many from an exciting new talent.
It's nice to read from the "monster" point of view and more over to actually root for them, although you know they are blood thirsty. I enjoy this book and I especially recommend it as a Halloween read.
All that being said, had I known going into the book how much gore and erotica therein was contained, I might have shied away. And I would've missed a great read. While I love the paranormal/monster genre, I tend to harbor a special place in my heart for the struggling monster hero - a hero determined to suppress his natural inclinations for those he loves. This is not that kind of book. These vampire girls are monsters, and for the most part, they revel in their monsterdom. And yet somehow, I could still find a connection with them that would allow me to sympathize with their plight.
Voodini's writing is superb. I was completely immersed and transported to the East End of London. His characters were equal portions creepy, perverse, and entertaining. Excellent read.
