My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is one of those books that I really liked but it’s hard to say why. I think part of the reason is that most of the book is focused on the characters and their interactions rather than trying to be the scariest, or goriest, or introducing some other over-the-top element to make it different. The author adds his own little twist to his vampires and it’s nicely done. I hear a sequel is in the works and I’m looking forward to it.
“When Lucy Leary turned 18, her life fell apart. She crashed her car, her best friend abandoned her, her parents divorced, and her grandfather passed away, leaving her a single possession: A vampire slaying kit with a note that said, “THEY’RE REAL. FIGHT THEM”.”
