This is a different and unique dark Vampire read. Kearby does a great job of creating a horror story that grabs you and doesn’t let go to the last page. This is a very detailed read, you can see every scene as if you were watching a movie. The WWII tie in is very interesting and adds a historical element the storyline. The characters are very well developed. I look forward to reading the next book in the series and more from Mike Kearby.     

MY RATING:          

♥♥♥♥ 4/5 Hearts: Great Read
