About the Author

MR Graham is a native Texan who traces strong cultural roots back to Scotland, Poland, and England. A mild-mannered Latin teacher during the day, Graham transforms at night into a raging Holmesian loremaster and rabid novelist. Though passionate about all scholarship and academia, Graham's training and true love lies with anthropology, particularly the archaeological branch. Also, steampunk and vampires.

In this dark novel of wizards and vampires, we meet Leonard Hugo. He is a medium turned vampire. He's also a stuttering wuss. Things get really bad for Leonard when he meets Sebastian Duran, a completely psychotic vampire, who kidnaps and tortures him. Throughout the book, we see the complete ruin of two lost souls. Both of their minds are twisted and sick. Leonard becomes a pathetic (and somewhat annoying) puppet with no backbone, and Sebastian is an unrelenting, manipulative, evil, control freak. The two are pursued by a wizard and a band of vampire hunters who are trying to stop Sebastian. The wizard, Kim, is a likeable character. Unfortunately, she peeters out and is basically dropped by the end of the book. Readers who are invested in that part of the plot will find that disappointing. Readers will also be hoping for a happy ending, as Leonard does, but it just doesn't happen. It's a long spiral into a world of insanity and despair.

The Medium is a paranormal psychological thriller that has a lot of good qualities. There are memorable moments, interesting characters, and plot twists. The psychological aspect of the book is very interesting. It's definitely not a light read, and may leave readers feeling emotionally drained. The Medium is for those who enjoy dark, paranormal novels.

Lenny makes my heart hurt.

In her third Book of Lost Knowledge, Graham continues to expand a world where vampires and ghosts, wizards and mediums haunt the background of deceptively ordinary life. This novel follows the story of Leonard Hugo, a medium-turned-vampire, when he is kidnapped and tortured by the twisted Sebastian Duran.

As always, I'm delighted by the Graham's attention to detail with her setting and her characters -- glimpses of a battered Datsun, an electric blanket, an eight-track tape build a solid world that feels much bigger than a single story. I particularly adored the cast for this novel -- fierce Kim with her cowboy and her spirit-walker, snarky Vickie, and poor, poor Lenny.

Despite that this is a very dark story, it had a hopefulness about it that surprised and delighted me -- even when Lenny was struggling the most, I never gave him up for lost. There was always someone fighting for him. I feel like this is a very rare thing in a novel swarming with amoral monsters and shattered identities, and I appreciated it.

My only complaint is that the cast of characters shifted rather abruptly in the last third of the book. I spent a solid chunk of the novel investing in Kim and the Texans, and I felt a bit as if their stories petered out without resolution just because there was no longer room for them in the plot. Still, Graham's stories being as interwoven as they are, I'm hoping to see more of them in future novels.

This is a newer take on a much written about subject which covers a few different paranormal genres quite well. M.R. is definitely an excellent author that knows how to weave a web around his authors. The book has a good pace to it with constant changes that work well of each other. The overall feel of the book feels a bit hopeless though.

M.R. did an excellent job in developing Lenny's character. You really feel like you know him, well until you read the next book which shows that you haven't learnt everything yet. He is a complete anti hero and you can't help but feel for him and his difficulties. The ending was a little surprising and sad.

Kim is more of a heroine than Lenny would be and really complements him well. Her friends are also good additions to this book and make sense.

I find, especially after reading Mora, that this is more like an introduction to a series that is rather captivating. There are many well developed twists that move the story along beautifully.

I have received this book from the author for an honest review.

The Medium is a twisted piece of supernatural horror that would make Stephen King proud. This is a study in mental and physical decay as a vampire medium finds himself caught in the web of an insane vampire, stronger and crueler then himself.

There are times that the book lost me, as like Lenny's mind, it had moments of disconnect, but overall the book was a gripping cruel, terrifying story.

I first met Lenny and Sebastian in MR Graham's book In the Shadow of the Mountains and absolutely hated the two of them. The Medium is much like a prequel to that story - this is where we learn why Lenny got involved with Sebastian Duran, an evil and cold-hearted vampire. Once I got into the story, there's much insight into why those two were the way they were. They're pursued by a wizard and a band of vampiric hunters who are trying to stop Sebastian and his slaughtering rampage. I didn't ever think I would feel sorry for two vampires who were on a killing spree (one who was forced and one who was driven) but I found myself rationalizing exactly why they were doing it. I'm very interested in seeing where Ms. Graham's next book takes us in these tales of vampires.....
