Featured Book Review: Killing Your Boss
Killing Your Boss was a great horror serial killer read. The author, James DeSantis did a marvelous job with this short story that had many twists in it. I like how the author describes each character on their own page. James was very descriptive with his writing to the point…
The Vampire Memoirs - Kensington Horror Book Review
Horror books Review
My friend recommended this book and told me that it was really good, but I disagree.
Mara is a gender-confused warrior princess when she meets a man who accepts her and marries her. This man, named Gaar, becomes the magistrate of Castrill, the city in which they live. Mara has 3 children and then she and Gaar are called to a fellow magistrate’s home to talk over trade operations. Little do they know that this magistrate, Agyar, is a vampire. Agyar ‘converts’ Mara and makes her his wife, after killing Gaar. Mara lives with Agyar for a time until she moves onto London and becomes a prositute.
I found this book ridiculous. I felt that Mara’s feelings were not portrayed as throughly or truely as they should or could have been.
We all know that the story of vampires is just a legend that has been kept alive by story tellers, all through the ages. But some of the things that happens to Mara, or that Mara does, is just stupid. A vampire getting drunk after a cup of spiked punch at a party? Mara becoming a prostitute, even though her job at the pub was paying her fine? An-all-too-modern 362 A.D.? Gaar coming back as a reincarnated heartthrob? Vampires not being able to “live without a cup of coffee at night”? PUH-LEEZ.
Disappointing and a waste of reading time. A good vampire book that I recommend would be “Interview With The Vampire” by Anne Rice.
