In "Visage," you soon find out that Melissa is not sweet thing she was in "Bryony." She justifies her brazen behavior, as "all is fair in love and war." When she finally scores her prize, she realizes her Victorian Vampire is just an ordinary, moody guy. They experience the the highs and lows of an average American couple. Huh? That can't be right; the bridegroom is - after all - a vampire. Yet, he likes his steak well-done, and that's a good sign... or is it?
You know something is going to give. You just don't know what or when. It happens slowly and with great subtlety. At times, you find yourself holding your breath. The author teases with clues and hints until you nearly burst with anticipation.
One of the most terrifying characters in this book is the child, John-Peter. His precociousness isn't cute, it's creepy. Descriptions of his antics call to mind the scene in "The Exorcist," where Linda Blair skitters down the stairs backwards and upside down like a cockroach. You just know something is wrong; horribly wrong. But, there is no green vomit or rotating heads. You get to use your imagination, and that's far more effective.
The author rounds the story out with moments of great humor, such as the "once and future" vampire accepting a part-time paper delivery route for extra income. Her quips about the death of journalism are deadpan, enlightening and hilarious. The author's character development is rich. Family physician Dr. Rothgard, mystic, Cornell Dyer and newspaper distribution manager, Ed Calkins, add a touch of spice and high drama.
I'm waiting in rapt anticipation for Book No. 3.
