The story is entertaining, told in a way that captures the attention of the reader, and it presents a metaphor to consider. To survive an increasingly violent society, adaptation is required. Oftentimes a vicious act is transformative, and strength can mean the difference between being a victim or becoming a survivor. Brutality, when confronted with greater force, is purged. Whether it is retribution or much deserved consequence, you'll have to judge for yourself. But Trudy would call it justice.
Fifth, there are some bewildering, unresolved issues, or the result of the author not doing research. For example, the protagonist is reading a book supposedly dating from the 17th century about vampires, and describes seeing photographs of feeding vampires. However, photographs were not developed until the middle of the 19th century. Perhaps the author was aware of this and was intending this to be part of the mystery. Neverhtheless, for this issue, the author failed to adequately define this issue with the photograph as a genuine mystery (which was not resolved), or a lazy oversight. Finally, every single one of the characters is written in a totally unbelievable manner that is impossible to relate to.
I apologize if my review is not compelling, but seriously, do not buy this garbage. I only hope that this review reaches enough people to put a dent in sales so this author never publishes again.
