Leigh M. Lane

Jane is a collection of 3 novellas and 1 novelette about a vampire from the 60’s who’s frozen in time as a teenager-turning-adult. We follow her as she travels from town to town, somehow running into trouble wherever she goes. Why does Jane get into trouble? I think it’s because she’s an atypical vampire. First of all she was turned while on the streets running from an abusive father. Then, the vampire who turned her was far worse than her father ever was, raping her in unimaginable and horrific ways. These experiences drive Jane to feed on no one but the evil. Hence, Jane must seek out the evil, which invariably leads her into troublesome situations.
To tell you any more about the stories would be to spoil the surprises which await you in each tale. Let me continue in this way: The only thing that bothered me in these delightful and saucy stories was the soul-searching that Jane should have dealt with 50 years earlier. Much of the time I felt that Jane was a fairly new vampire instead of one who had been turned back in the sixties. Now this could just be me being picky, because the information had to be brought into the stories somehow. I say these things yet I went through the book rapidly, finding it hard to leave the book closed as I worked. I also thought each story was refreshingly original. But the reason I gave Jane a 5 star rating instead of the four it might otherwise have been is this…Jane was fun to read. When did you ever say such a thing about a horror story? Perhaps this is the reason Leigh M. Lane called the book a dramatic horror story. Yes! This book is a drama with horrific passages. And as horrific as some of those passages were, they were not enough to keep me from enjoying the drama. I felt like I was immersed in a television series. As Jane would say, “Cool.”

Travelling south, mostly walking barefoot, Jane encounters various humans and supernatural creatures. A park ranger, a werewolf, an incubus, a homeless Vietnam veteran with flashbacks of his own, a long lost friend and an astral traveller who wants to enlist her to banish a dreamwalker.
All the way through she keeps on thinking and wondering, speculating and learning. A ditzy blonde she ain’t, and the overconfident incubus should think twice about attempting to outsmart her. Herself she should think twice about lying to her long lost friend. And every adventure is a lesson Jane is willing to learn.
‘Revival’ is a compelling read, sprinkled with reflections about life and human potential.
Jane doesn’t have a lot of squicky killing and fang-piercing-throat action, but I was okay with that. I enjoyed the collection thoroughly and I would consider it horror for those who say they don’t read horror. It is light hearted and fun and I sympathized with Jane’s plight. Great collection of novelettes.
