About David McAfee

I was born in Lakenheath AFB in England. I wrote my first book at age 6 (no, it was never published!) and started my first novel at age 12. Of course, shortly afterward I discovered girls and that book remains unfinished to this day.

I currently live in Tennessee with my wife, daughter, and a horde of furry creatures.

Review by: B Hoffman on Feb. 14, 2011 :
I've spent a long time looking for good authors in the urban fantasy/supernatural genre, and David McAfee is definitely one of the better ones I have read. There are some storytelling issues (i.e., too great a reliance on "info-dumps"), but the plot is solid and the ending is one of the best parts of the book. It is not what I was expecting at all. The journey of the main character from man to monster is fascinating, and readers are treated to a first-person view of it.

** spoiler alert ** I really wasn't sure whether I was going to like this book or not, up until the very end. I had seen this story described as a sort of vampire romance, which is initially what drew me to it. It's not though, at least not by any definition of romance I have. I never believed that Vincent really loved Raine; he barely knew her. Obsessed with her? Sure. In lust with her? Absolutely. Affected by vampire attraction mind control or something? Yeah. In love with her? Not by my definition of the word. I'm one of those party poopers who think love at first sight is a crock of $#!7. Not believing that he loved her, I'm not sure the ending had quite the emotional impact it might have otherwise, but I do really like how we see that Vincent, as a vampire, is a monster. He's not the man he was when he was a alive. I love vampires with souls on occasion (Angel, Spike...NOT Edward Cullen though), but it was refreshing to see the process ...more I really wasn't sure whether I was going to like this book or not, up until the very end.

I had some problems with the storytelling in places, but for me, the ending made up for them.

Side note: The story is told in first person. I know that really turns some people off, so be forewarned. I'm not usually a first person kind of girl, but it didn't bother me in this case. I know other people really love that, so, if you're one who loves it, this book might be right up your alley.
