I approached this book with some trepidation - I really don't like vampire fiction and I'm not a huge fan of horror. I am, however, a huge fan of F. Paul Wilson. So I decided to give this book a shot. I was not disappointed. This is a well written story. It was full of suspense. It isn't quite a gorry as I thought it would be - I was relieved. It was a well crafted thriller with a satisfying ending. I highly recommend this book!
Vampires, Zombies & Werewolves...oh my! This was a fun, entertaining read with a pretty satisfying ending. It was certainly exciting! I had a lot of fun reading it, though it was a bit ridiculous overall. Still, I would read another book by this author!
