~Stuart Thaman, [...]
The characters themselves are dark and layered, even the 'good guys' aren't constrained by the usual definitions of such. There are no white hat heroes in this world, and honestly that's a good thing as it adds more to the feel of 'real life' despite the supernatural elements. This makes the story as a whole far stronger and I appreciate the hustle.
I can't wait for the next part, I'm very curious to see where both the human protagonist and the vampire protagonist go after this.
(This review may contain spoilers).
Despite feeling that vampires are vastly over-used in fiction, I was curious enough about what this book would be like to request a copy of it.
I did like reading the first half of the book. It was good to see the story focus primarily on human detectives having to deal with the issue of facing a creature that should only exist in fiction. The first scene did a really good job of drawing me into the book... but since I had no idea what was on the disk, I was a bit on edge until I was able to see the video through the eyes of some of the other characters.
I didn't much like JayJay or Josh during the book... but Josh was especially irritating, since he seemed like a nice guy from the outside... but he made my skin crawl when I was reading from his point of view.
I did find Alex to be an interesting character and it was good to see her trying to deal with the possibility of vampires. I did think the opinions of the other characters involved did make sense... except for Richard, who seemed to have quite a lot going on in his head deep down.
There were a lot of dark scenes in this book and I thought there were a lot of good descriptions. The second half of the book was a bit more difficult to get behind. I wasn't actually sure what to make of the vampiric characters, even though it was good to see that they weren't dark, brooding, romantic heroes. And I found it interesting to get glimpses into Jack's past, as well as to see the other kinds of vampires.
I did get a bit confused about what was going on with the different groups formed in the vampires, but I liked the fact that Alex saw the potential danger in arresting a presumed vampire. While there were some aspects that were quite fantastical, I actually felt that a lot of the reactions of the characters made sense and were realistic.
I did find this book to be entertaining to read, even if it was hard in places. I'd be interested in reading a sequel to this book at some point in the future.
The plot was convincing, though the ruthlessness of Jack's killings sometimes contradicted his intentions. The introduction of a very vicious kind of animal-like vampires who feed on humans and vampires added another interesting facette to the already gripping story. The ending holds the promise for a sequel that will hopefully come soon.
