There have been a couple of good vamp stories I've gotten a chance to read lately. Both different than the sexy vamp. books/characters that have become so popular and that I long ago grew burnt out on.
I can now add Hunt-Jake the Ripper to the list. A couple of good vamp stories has now become a few.
I loved this. Enought that if we could knock the star rating up some I would gladly put it somewhere close to ten.
At first, I will admit, the font used on the cover gave me the impression I was in for a slash and burn, classic sort of straight forward bloody horror but what I got was something much more refined due largely to the authors writing skill. Right away I caught the ebb and flow, the up and down, the emphasis used on single words or short sentences for added punch that makes for a very engaging read as if you are in the physical presence of the storyteller.
There were plenty of twists I didn't see coming right up until the end. Longer than a short but didn't feel like it. Recommend.

Is it possible to add a different angle to the vampire genre? Artie Margrave thinks so as he addresses betrayal, loyalty, and even a crisis of faith in this violent story about hunting the last vampire. The question is, which side will you root for, and what will it take for you to see the light?
