These stories are all about character development, Drayton's character as well as the people he deals with in each story. I enjoyed all of them, but I thought the final story was off base. It's not a bad story, it just didn't seem to follow the theme of the others. Drayton was mostly in the sidelines of that one, and his role was not well defined.
Very entertaining reading. I enjoyed it.
It is nice to reread the Drayton stories in one collection. I like them all for different reasons. I enjoy Bertauski's writing style. His line about Swift is The Current: "Some bad seeds are worth saving." made me stop working just to read the story.
The Chronicles are divided up in a number of stories. Most of them involve Drayton distributing justice in some form or another. Drayton's need to see things put right is a sort of "thank-you" for taking someone's soul and thus empowering Drayton. The early portion involves punishment dealt out to thieves, liars, the privileged who misuse their power, and a pedophile. The last story is unique. Instead of a horrid person, Drayton helps an older doctor appreciate his past life, so that when he finally dies (and Drayton takes his soul) he is finally content.
The stores are well written. I found myself wondering who really was the monster in each story, Drayton or the human who inflicted pain on others and thought that they could get away with it. In any case, the resolution in each story was satisfying.
I liked the character and that is what carried me through these short stories.
Please note these are 5 short stories, rather than a standard book. I found them all to be enjoyable yet sadly I found the last one to be the weakest. If the collection had ended on a higher note I might have awarded this 5 stars.
Recommended for readers interested in a new take on vampires.
