I must say the character names in this book bugged me. I know it's a petty thing, but you like what you like and you hate what you hate, right?
Another thing that got on my nerves as the book went along was the repetitive descriptions of certain things. Tim Curran uses a LOT of adjectives in his writing, but it seems like in this one he gave up trying to think of new ones, so a few things became a little redundant.
I liked the start of the book best, I think. I'm a fan of stories in snowy settings, and this one starts with a storm that quickly turns to a full-on blizzard. But . . . yeah. It might not have helped that I didn't particularly like any of the characters, either. I don't know!
I'll be reading more Tim Curran, without a doubt, but in future I'll be looking more closely at the subject matter.
The story itself centers on a Late-Night television crew who arrive in the middle of a blizzard to the town of Cobton. By arrive, I mean they crash and become stranded. And by stranded I mean trapped by some hungry vampires. Thats right, vampires. The ugly, vengeful, merciless, blood-thirsty kind.
The vampire genre might be going through a metamorphosis of sorts. After being dead for a while, vampires came back with a vengeance, except they are wusses. They love, drink animal blood, and feel tortured by their immortality. Oh and they sparkle. But now the true vampire is taking its rightful reign at the top of the food chain.
And thats what we have here. Vampires who see humans for what they are, food and nothing else but food. These vampires take in different forms; calling on old legends to add to the material. I was quite proud of the vampires in this book.
The human characters serve their purpose. Not very third-dimensional, except for Megga (more on her later). Most become gore fodder. Wenda (the female lead) becomes Sigourney Weaver. And we have a complete tale of survival against vampires that would entertain most folks.
Megga was my favorite character because of her growth. She became real to me as the character that infuriates everyone, and she does not disappoint in this tale. She becomes a constant threat because of her lack of willpower. She is very well-written and enjoyable to the end.
Would have been great if not for the overly-written, redundant details.
