..".certainly impressive for a debut. The plot is reminiscent of the early, and best, of the Anita Blake novels." -- Don D'Ammassa

A great read with a grissly, violent plot. The story of Eric is intriguing as he tries to gradually piece together his past whilst reconciling mistakes he has made with those he has pushed away. Of course...Eric is very powerful but surprisingly he just doesn't care about it or becoming a major player, he questions it but is quite happy to just get on with running his strip club and feeding from hot chicks with big breasts. Unfortunately for him, he has to start getting it together. I gave the book 4 stars rather than five because in some situations the characters are just so stupid and can't see what's in front of them but I'm hoping this will improve in the next book.
Eric, the protagonist, is not like the vampires in the rest of the genre. He's not romantic, he's not interested in woman's feelings (except when he's hurting them - he rather enjoys that), and he's not conflicted about killing. In fact, he just loves killing, and it's a pretty gory book. Eric is, in short, a complete monster.
It's also a very funny book. Eric keeps having blackouts and wakes up surrounded by body parts. He's forgetful (having been embalmed by his best friend), callous and cruel, and only makes a go of his strip club because he's surrounded, for reasons that will be made clear, by people who love him, need him, or are just plain entertained by him. He has a son he can't be bothered to slaughter, a daughter with an eating disorder (she likes eating twins), and an ex-girlfriend/mother figure who is now in her sixties. Not all of them survive, by the way, and it's a hoot seeing who Eric will dispose of next.
Not for the squeamish, definitely not for you if you are looking for a romance, but otherwise highly recommended.
