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 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
