What do you want in a vampire book? Blood, history, violence, more blood and Rock music. What DON'T you want? Romance, teen angst, lack of blood and vampires who sparkle. This book ticks all those boxes. I've always been a fan of Anne Rice's vampires and felt a bit let down when Lestat's foray into rock music ended suddenly, Chris Harrison picks up those pieces and creates a vampire universe that surpasses Anne Rice. I've never read a book where an author has put in this much effort into a book, there is a website, featuring bios on the band members, tour dates and even music by the band. Link can be found here....
The writing is really well done, it draws you into the story and has you guessing throughout the book. Chris makes clever use of newspaper articles, blogs and tweets, all of which makes it all feel more real.
I'm completely hooked on these books now and will be reading the second book as soon as I get my hands on a copy.
