This review is from: The Return of the Vampire (Point Horror) (Paperback)
This book is the kind of book you pick up when you want an easy read with some subtle horror and spine-tingle.

As you know, if you have read even an extract of this book, it is not challenging in any sense of the word, but, it is unusual.

The fact that the Vampire is a 'Vampire' is the only semblance to the traditional 'monsters' he has. There the simalarity ends.

The genreal plot of the young, plain girl entrapping 'popular' IT girls' in the care of the sinister vampire in exchange for 'beauty' is an idea and plot that i have not come across again since Coony's "Vampire" series.

For this fact alone the book is unusual. All in all the plot has good idea's behind it, the author describes parts in fine detail, but the character's overall stay underdeveloped and somewhat shallow, especially the main girl - Devnee. We also only see one side of the 'Vampire' who remains one of the most exciting, but most underdeveloped characters in the whole book.

Overall a good, easy read for a rainy day. Still I can't help feeling that Coony could have made something much more of this unusual twist on the 'Vampire' and plot than she did. It just seems to be missing that spark that would have made it too amazing to put down.
