The first of 4 books in the Blood Screams series by Robert. Walker Aka Geoffrey Caine, this book is not your typical Vampire romance novel that is so popular right now, even though that is what the cover might suggest. Dr. Stroud is more like Bram Stokers Van Helsing than it is an Ann Rice novel. It character Abraham Stroud and the story line do share some of the same attributes as the Charlene Harris Southern Vampire series, but this book was written ten year before the release of Dead until Dark.
In this book Dr. Stroud has some psychic powers that are attributed to his injury he suffered in the Vietnam War, which like Sookie Stackhouse can be good and bad. Both Dr. Stroud and Sookie lose their parents and are raised by a grandparent The Vampires in the novel also have a substitute for straight human blood as do the vampires in the Southern Vampire series, but that is where the similarities ends.
If you're a fan of a horror and tales of vampires you will enjoy this book, and don't forget it doesn't end here there are 3 more books so far in the Abraham Stroud series. So at 2.99 give it a shot it's cheaper than some of the new releases out and a better story to sink your fangs in too.
When a small boy goes missing in his new hometown, Stroud gets a vision of the boy being killed. It drives him to join the hunt for the child and ultimately puts Stroud in the crosshairs of a group of vampires who've slowly been building a power base in this small town.
Creepy images of humans trapped in cocoons, to be drained of the blood when necessary, along with horrific transformations from human form to huge bat form make this a gruesome book, but Walker doesn't simply shock us. He draws a vivid image of the tragedies as well as plotting a well-crafted story about a man who is so driven by his humanity that he will risk his sanity to save others from the vicious vampires plaguing his town.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I much prefer my vampires ugly and beastly than handsome and tragic, so Walker's depiction of the evil bloodsuckers was spot-on for me.
This book is very readable and enjoyable. I'd highly recommend it.
Now I realize that writing a book is hard work, taking a great deal of time and effort. And everybody makes mistakes. And you don't always catch your own mistakes. And that's why any book that is being written to be sold to the public needs to be professionally edited. The best books can be ruined by fairly small errors.
Here is what I found in Vampire Dreams. Bill Briggs is introduced in the book as the local Chief of Police. It is mentioned in passing that the Sheriff' Office has a larger budget. Then in one chapter later in the book he is called the Sheriff. Then he returns to his title as Chief of Police. A large error? Not really, but very irritating. And a very easy fix if the book had been properly proofread.
At another point in the book it is noted that a vampire is very afraid to go into a walk-in freezer because the vampires are susceptible to freezing solid at low temperatures. Later in the book a vampire is described as sleeping comfortably at 22F. Another fault easily cured by good proofreading.
A great many ebooks suffer from these faults to a much greater extent than this particular book. So why did I pick this book to point out these faults in? Because it is a good book and because it is worth reading. It deserved better treatment than I think it got. It deserves care it did not get. By all means, read the book but be aware it could have been made better with effort it should have received but did not.
