After a traumatic encounter, a famous rock star abandons his family, fading into obscurity, until his daughter unwittingly walks into his bar in the urban fantasy Song of the Vampire (The Vampyr Trilogy Book 1) by K.M. McFarland. After spending a night he doesn’t remember with a stranger, rock star Quinn Forrester awakes the next morning with an extreme thirst for blood and a future of immortality. Hoping to reconcile his new and abrupt transformation with his previously typical life, Quinn goes home to learn his wife has taken his baby daughter and left him. Someone had sent her photographic evidence of the night he can’t remember. Making a clean break, Quinn divorces her and moves on with his life. No longer interested in performing, Quinn opens a bar, naming it Vampyr after his new appropriated life. However, one fateful night eighteen years later, Quinn’s life comes full circle when his daughter Nadia walks into his bar to sing with her band. Once she knows who he is, can Nadia accept Quinn’s unnatural lifestyle and allow him to be a part of her life? Or is it too late and too bizarre?
Song of the Vampire (The Vampyr Trilogy Book 1) by K.M. McFarland is a brilliant urban fantasy with a supernatural flair. It has an intriguing storyline with an unforgettable plot, and I loved every aspect of the story. Including an enthralling storyline, action-packed scenes, and well-defined, relatable characters, it is a captivating novel that I will not soon forget. Engaging and likable, the protagonists lead unassuming lives that seem quite natural, even though they are part of the undead world. It is a thoroughly enjoyable series, and I am looking forward to meeting Quinn and his family again in future adventures. Those who enjoy vampire books will not be disappointed, and I recommend it to everyone who is a fan of the vampire genre. Due to the more mature matter contained in some of the scenes, this is better suited for those who are young adults and older.”

Some time in 1975 or 1976, Ila Bosarge gave me a copy of Interview With The Vampire, written by some author I had never heard of called Anne Rice. I wasn't too keen on reading it because I’m not into horror so much. But I was into Ila. She was and is one of the great friends of my life and she was a very smart girl so I read the book. It changed my perspective on vampires. I think it changed the world’s perception of vampires. Bram Stoker might have written the book on vampires, but Anne Rice rewrote it. K.M. McFarland may have just made a big contribution to the massive amount of vampire lore and books that have been created in the wake of Anne Rice. Some of these I have read, some of them I just can’t get into. I got into Sex, Blood, Rock ‘N’ Roll, and Vampyr. I look forward to seeing more of The Bloodline Trilogy series.
I love that Sex, Blood, Rock ‘N’ Roll, and Vampyr takes place in New Orleans. It is the perfect setting for a vampire story and, since I grew up a two-hour drive away, I am intimately familiar with the city. I like K.M. McFarland’s take on vampire lore. Every writer has a different approach and I like hers. I like her characters. Lestat might have been a very interesting vampire, but he was sometimes difficult to like. I like Quinn. I like his family. Family is something Lestat could never get right. It seems to me that without a functional family, being immortal would become a chore. The writing is good. The plot works, and the vampires are fashionable and friendly. If you are in the market for a new vampire book, try this one."

Welcome my wonderful bloody readers to the best time of the year. Halloween is almost here
and you could feel it in the air. People starting to decorate their houses, horror movies playing
more regularly and the air is getting chilly. Perfect time to read a couple of books to continue the mood. I have two books that could fit the bill. The first is about a group of vampires trying to live amongst humans without conflict until a young painter finds them out. The second is a
compilation of horror stories that will make you think while entertaining. So enjoy the cool
weather and spend the time reading. Enjoy!
Sex, Blood, Rock N Roll and Vampyr by K.M. McFarland
The title alone got me interested and looked like it could be a wild book. But
as they say, don’t judge a book by its cover, or in this case, title. It has all those
elements but it is more of a family friendly horror book in the way of Twilight.
McFarland creates a world that is both expected but new.
The story takes place is New Orleans where Quinn and Randi with his
daughter Nadia run a night club and try to lead normal lives. At least normal lives
for vampires surrounded by humans. Humans think they are only a myth and if
they find out, it would be dangerous for them. But that changes when they meet a
young woman who wants a fling with them. They discover that she knows about
them and what they are but she is willing to keep their secret.
What they find out later is that she has a connection to Quinn’s past when he
was human and in a popular rock n’ roll band. This situation gets really complicated
when it involves his former band member threatening to find out who he is. It could jeopardize their way of life and all of his family. Can he stop this from happening or will being outed make his world come apart.
McFarland does a great job in bringing the reader to a whole new area of vampires and the location she picks is perfect. This adds to the element of not knowing what to believe in the wildest party town there is. She puts a couple of twists in her story to keep the reader hooked. I recommend this book who wants to read a good vampire novel with a light touch. You can find this book at Amazon.com
