Gary Lee Vincent has created a vampire novel that goes against the recent trend for romanticising blood suckers and goes back to the depraved and monstrous fiends of traditional vampire legends. There’s no sexy smouldering coolness like Jean-Claude in Laurell K Hamilton’s “Anita Blake” series or soul searching teenage tenderness like Edward Cullen in Stephanie Meyer’s “Twilight” trilogy. This vampire is pure unadulterated demonic evil, from his talon like hands down to the wings on his back. This is a cold hearted creature that’s the stuff of nightmares, not fantasies!

Pure dark horror fiction at its best, the author will have you recoiling at times as the tale takes a few particularly dark turns. You’ll be kept in suspense as the story unfolds, with secrets hinted at and dark forces slowly unveiled, until the book suddenly reaches it’s awful and horrific climax. With sex thrown in for good measure, you really cannot go wrong with this read that will definitely keep you enthralled until the end (and probably make you want to keep the lights on too!).

At some points I actually found myself closing my eyes in a vain attempt to block out the images created in my mind by the words on the page. I can’t actually remember the last time a book had that effect on me. As the deathly drama unfolds, many of Vincent’s characters are transfixed by the horror they are witnessing, and believe me you will be too!
