Book Review of The Last Vampire (Annals of Alchemy and Blood, Bk 1)

The Last Vampire (Annals of Alchemy and Blood, Bk 1)
reviewed on + 9 more book reviews
Helpful Score: 1

A good vampire story requires some suspension of disbelief. Unfortunately, the authors shatter that with their myriad of conflicting explanations for what's actually happening in the story. First it's biological. Then it's magic. Then it's Alchemy. Then faith and losing your soul gets thrown in. You need a scorecard just to keep track of where which character got which power. Add in the graphic sex scenes and gore, plus the fact that magic seems to have gratuitous and shifting costs (one character loses memories, another humanity - with no real explantion why magic should do that) and this one kills your appetite completely.
