His Father's Son Horror Book Review
Featured Book Review: Darkbound
Darkbound is an amazing book. Michaelbrent Collings outdid himself with this book. It is not at all what I thought it would be. I took three nights to finish this book because I stayed up way past my bedtime. Darkbound was so suspenseful that I just kept on reading to…

I am a fan of P.N. Elrod so I ordered this book and “Keeper of the King”. But I found I didn’t enjoy reading the book - it seemed slow and sometimes dull. Maybe because I am not a fan of the TV show, having only seen a few episodes. Or maybe because I had to read the second book first as the first book has yet to get to me. It could be that I just don’t have knowledge about the background, what type of vampires I am dealing with and no real information about the characters. Richard is not like ANY other vampire in any of P.N. Elrod’s other vampire series, so I had no real idea when he was in danger or when he wasn’t.
But even taking that away, to be honest, I found parts of the book felt slow, with flashbacks that I didn’t think added to the story, and a surprise ending, a twisted ending, that I didn’t really believe in. In other words, even if I was a fan of the TV show, I might found it hard to plow thru.
In the end I had to take away three points. Please remember, that I am not a fan of Forever Night, because I don’t watch it daily, and fans of the show, or of Nigel Bennett, might enjoy the book more. PLUS I have yet to read “Keeper of the King”. But I won’t suggest it for P.N. Elrod fans UNLESS they also like the show or have some knowledge of its setting.
