on July 02, 2013 :
This is not a book. I would have realised that there were problems with it if I’d looked more closely at the title, which seems to be three titles in one. It’s more complex than the story.
It’s usual in a review to briefly summarise the title but all you need to know is the bit of the title that says ‘Vampire Hunters’. This is a fight sequence between vampires and vampire hunters. Nothing more. And it’s preposterously short. According to my Kindle, the cover, disclaimers and table of contents take up 11% of the whole; given that there’s also an excerpt from another ‘book’ at the end and the usual information about the author, you can see how short the story is.
So here are the problems with the ‘book’. It isn’t a story, it’s a fight. There are lots and lots of characters, none of which have any character at all. There are only three lines of dialogue in the entire story. The unlucky – and quickly dead – vampires are not characterised and are nothing more than big game animals. The emotion in the book is only skin deep, and not convincing.
I should say that the author writes quite well, although the paragraphs are tediously long for the most part. The world is also thoroughly imagined. But it’s not a story, and it’s not value for even the cheap price.
