Forget Anne Rice and Poppy Z. Brite -- Rusch's vampires are both seedy and hip, ambitious and gluttonous, and never averse to a little kinky sex. In Wisconsin, young Camilla works for the Westrina Center -- an agency that legally eradicates vampires. During a routine operation, she is shocked to discover a young child living with her vampiric 'daddy.' This event causes Camilla to think back to her own painful past and go in search of a long-lost sibling while confronting the fact she herself might be a 'hereditary,' an especially powerful sort of vampire. Meanwhile, in Oregon young Ben experiences some very strange consequences of his first sexual experience, which lead him to fall in with two European vampires, Mikos (who loves power) and Vangelina (who values control). Ben embraces his hereditary nature with gusto, while Camilla is more troubled. The showdown is inevitable...
Disturbing vampire story. Parts of it are erotic. I couldn't put it down.
I don't know if I really liked this book. It dealt with a lot of issues like, child abuse, molestation, addiction, incest, and sexuallity. It didn't end on a good note. It's message seems like there wasn't hope of recovery or a happy life if you suffered and survived through these things. It was a strange story. Plenty of action though, and you can take that how you will...
Sort of interesting, but not really to my taste.
Different sort of vampire story.
From the cover:
"Cammie is an eradicator, determined to do her job as a vampire slayer working for a privately funded organization...
...Cammie drove a wooden stake through her father's heart to save her brother Ben's life. Now she is leaving her job and her home to discover what has become of him. What she will find is the price she has paid for her survival and a madness born of the blood that will never die..."
Book is in good condition.
