Review

A master of eerie thrills Richard Laymon High energy writing Starburst on Vampyrrhic Rites The hottest new purveyor of horrific thrills currently working on these shores Big Issue 'Mesmerising quality...Contained all the essential elements...Clark raises not only the dead in the form of Viking vampires but the genre, when he mixes his scares up with thriller undertones. Intelligent, well-paced and compelling prose...I would get down to the bookstore now.' Bite Me on Vamphyrric Rites A definite confirmation of this author's growing reputation as one of the top genre novelists around today Starburst on The Night of The Triffids Readers will relish Clark's uncomplicated cocktail of chlorophyl and human blood Financial Times on The Night of the Triffids To say that Simon Clark is the best novelist to emerge this decade is self-evident. Simon has simply outgrown genre restrictions Andrew Darlington

Review: VAMPYRRHIC RITES by Simon Clark

This is one scary novel, and the frights never let up. Although the evil is vampiric, they aren't so in the ordinary sense. Lost in the midst of antiquity, a Viking settlement in what eventually became North Yorkshire flooded; the inhabitants went willingly, charged by their god and enabled to become undead. So they drowned, and inhabited the bottom of Lazarus Deep, as the lake came to be called. Eventually they await a descendant of the Viking chieftain, to lead them as an undead army, to conquer.

Accomplished author Simon Clark delivers multiple layers of frights and terrors, developing his characters in detailed depth while he virtually turns readers' hair white with terror.

This is definitely one of those sequels where it is necessary to read the first book first. The ending was thrilling and pulse-pounding, but required a bit of plodding at the beginning to reach the exciting parts. As the story begins, the reader night well ask "Who are these people?" as the narrative switches from one to another. If you hadn't read the first book, you would not understand. That said, the story is imaginative and introduces additional elements of the supernatural to bring together a clash of the undead under the leadership of the Leppingtons, theblood descendants of Thor. The descriptions are very good, and the book does a great job of invoking the atmosphere of the English moors. The new characters introduce a romance that is more satisfying than the first book. Clark's vampires are much more believable than the vampires of legend. The reading is easy and the ending exciting.

Vampyrrhic Rites is a worthy sequal to its predecessor. David Leppington and the gang are back, including Jack Black who appears as either a vampire or a ghost, no one is really sure and helps them get together to fight yet another battle against evil. Dylan Adams and his girlfriend Vikki are introduced as new characters, along with Rowan and Goldi. Problem is, the new characters are weak. Honestly, I think the story would have been just as good without them their, and Goldi was a waste of space...he didnt do anything at all. The writing has shifted and this one is not near as creepy as the first vampyrrhic novel. I guess this one is aimed more at a high tech generation than the first, and while it works fine, it always feels as if the magic of the first book has been hung out to dry. But dont get me wrong, this is a good book and fun and quick and it has all sorts of bloody and guts violence for vampire fans...which speaking of, I think Simon Clark really wrote this for his die hard fans, people who have enjoyed his earlier novels and still want to read his work. I enjoyed it, had a great time with it...if you are expecting it to be as good as the first, it is not going to happen. I would give it 3 and a half stars.

The book that shifted my own writing into a higher gear. A must read from one of my favourite authors. Other reviews cover the plot so if if sounds like a book you'd be interested in reading you WILL NOT be disappointed!

I liked VAMPYRRHIC RITES a bit more than the previous book VAMPYRRHIC. The writing seemed stronger. The plot built nicely upon the concept introduced in the first book. And it seemed to build into a larger climax than the previous book.

David Leppington, Electra Charwood and Bernice Mochardi have all moved on with their lives after defeating the vampire army. However, all of them are having dreams of their fallen friend Jack Black. Having stayed behind in Leppington, Electra notices weird things beginning to happen. It turns out the vampires are still around and hiding in a nearby lake. Events move to all three of them meeting up again in Leppington along with some new friends. The reason for the new activity? There is another Leppington which means the vampires once again have the chance to be led into a battle against all Christians.

As I mentioned, the story builds upon the same idea as before by having a vampire army to be led in battle against all other religions. The events this time though struck me as more intense and involving. While I started the book reading it slowly (a few pages here, a chapter or two there), by the last half of the book I was only putting the book down when I had to. To me that is a sign of a good book: that I was pulled into the book so much that I didn't want to leave it.
