Synopsis

When vampires came out of the closet (so to speak) all hell broke loose. And it just keeps getting worse, with a human murderer on the prowl, hunting vampires…

Thoughts

This had a very crime, noir theme and atmosphere to this story. The call in the middle of the night, leaving a comfortable bed. The idea that a murder down a dark alley is being investigated.

The scene setting in this story is brilliant and it draws you in very quickly. But, I just didn’t really feel overly attached to the characters. I didn’t even query who was killing the vampires. Which is odd for me, since I always like to figure out the angles and the whys of crime. But I just didn’t really get involved in this. At all. In the slightest. Which is why I rated it a 3 out of 5 stars. I still enjoyed the storyline. But I didn’t really get very involved within it.
