I haven't boarded any Vampire trains since the Ann Rice books and movies. Quite frankly I felt I thought I was done with that genre. Not so, because someone mentioned in a review that she could imagine how much fun the authors must have had writing this book. I promptly decided not to miss out. This book (1st of 3) was worth my credit and I am looking forward to the rest.
By some magic of my own, I am trying to describe a hair-raising trilogy without scaring you out of your wits and away from reading the books:
So first be warned, there's lots of undead scenes and creepy, crawly scenes that might be hard on your stomach and nerves. The authors have an expected talent for making a great plot line come together. This is how folklore should be told. Also, try to keep your curtains drawn, doors locked and tongue in your cheek thru some things. I personally don't recommend this to your mature teens~especially if they are still wearing black lipstick.
I was very pleased with Ron Perlman's performance. Know the summary of main characters and get them straight at the start.
Don't forget you were warned, it's the season and we're overpopulated any way. You know your own tastes and tolerances, or maybe take a bite on the wild side.
I was hesitant to start this because I am current with the show and didn't want to sit through a bunch or repeat bologna. To my surprise the book almost felt like an entirely different chapter in the same story. Obviously there was a lot of overlap but due to the difference in delivery it was not nearly as bad as I thought. Highly likely recommended even if you're current with the show
I did not want to stop listening could not stop! Was biting my nails in anticipation of what would happened next!! Now about to start on The Fall!!!
Say something about yourself!
It's just not my kind of vampire. I think I'm into the more traditional ones. If that had been the case I think I might have liked it a bit. The story may have gotten 3 stars from me because it was still just not that good. This is just my humble opinion.
Vampires are viruses
The entire thing as read by Perlman
Anything with Gus
I was blown away with how well Ron Perlman read the story. He made it come alive. I am reading the second book (physical copy) and hearing his voice in my head as I read.
The book is slower and yet faster paced (in certain aspects) than the TV show. The book is worth the read (or listen).
