Editorial Reviews

Review

"Drawing Dead (Faolon O'Connor Book 1) takes you back to the 1930s era of organized crime when mobsters, gangsters and mafia bosses were somewhat common.  Yet, author Brian McKinley has written a book that is far from stereotypical.  Why?  Because Faolan O'Connor isn't just a gangster, he's a freshly turned vampire.  The expectations of those above him aren't necessarily difficult for this tough-as-nails, cold-hearted killer or are they?  Faolan's superiors test him, and his so-called friends willingly turn their backs on each other to save their own necks.  Whether or not McKinley's young vampire will succeed in this new world or whether he'll finally end up dead remains to be seen.

"From the get go, readers will likely be captivated by the cover.  It fully captures the essence of Drawing Dead.  Vampires don't run around announcing to the world what they are, and the secrets that are fluidly woven throughout Drawing Dead are reflected not only from the cover but from page one.  Admittedly, the scenes do jump around a bit, which can make it a little confusing at times.  But there is so much action and intrigue embedded within the storyline that this is an aspect that can almost be overlooked.  McKinley does a great job offering readers the opportunity to take a look at their own values and morals as Faolan seems to reconnect with his humanness.  Of course, this may end up ending his life.  Highly recommended - readers can feel the danger, the excitement and the horror of a vampiric gangster life in this pragmatic tale." AuthorsTalkAboutIt.com.
 
"If Mickey Spillane or Dashiell Hammett had written books spiced with the supernatural, they might have come up with something like Drawing Dead. Meet Faolan' O'Connor, the Mike Hammer of the undead." --Clay Gilbert - Dragon Con Panelist and Author of Dark Road to Paradise

"Brian McKinley's Drawing Dead is The Godfather of vampire novels. Godfather, as in a pioneering effort, breaking new ground in its expertly weaved combination of two harsh, unforgiving, brutal worlds, at a level unprecedented in its scope, artistry and detail. The perfect blending of what may at first seem to be two disparate genres, merged in such seamless perfection that readers and authors alike will wonder in amazement why no author has written this perfect merger before.

"Godfather, as in recalling Mario Puzo's classic 1969 Mafia novel, and the impact it has made on the literary world. Just as Puzo's The Godfather exceeded the prose and craftmanship level for what readers expected of a mobster novel, McKinley's Drawing Dead exceeds readers' usual expectations of vampire novels and mobster novels by blending the best of both worlds and forging a newer and greater category all its own in the process.

"A world of life beyond life, death beyond death, where the turned henchman Faolan O'Connor gains power even he could not have imagined. Power that could take him to heights the human mobster he was could not have imagined, yet also the power to lead him to his ultimate fall and demise. Faolan holds the cards of power, yet only fate will know if he is drawing aces, or if he is Drawing Dead." --Daven Anderson, Author of Vampire Syndrome

About the Author

Brian Patrick McKinley doesn't really exist. He s a constructed mortal identity used by a relatively young Vampyr in order to publish the truth about The Order. Due to the world-wide influence of The Order and its minions, these accounts must all be published as fiction; however, they are all very real and actually happened. Sometimes the names and sequence of events have been changed to protect the innocent, the guilty, and to keep from getting sued.
Brian is no longer a typical Vampyr and, for this reason, lives in hiding and writes from a secret location. The real Brian lives a life of danger and excitement; he loves Star Trek, Game of Thrones, and Boardwalk Empire as much as he loves Chicken Fried Steak. He s a reader, a role-player, and a dreamer who doesn't believe that liberal is a dirty word. He s lived many lifetimes and is eager to share as many of them as possible with his readers.
