5.0 out of 5 stars Sparkle-free vamp goodness, 15 April 2013
This review is from: Krimson (Paperback)
THE BLURB:

The vampires' grip on London and the rest of Britain strengthens. Their human allies force themselves into positions of power. Even Downing Street is occupied by the Nebuchadnezzars, the undead's mortal watchmen. But a small band of Britons continues the fight. And with Jake Lawton leading them, there is always a glimmer of hope for humanity...

THE REVIEW:

KRIMSON is the second part of Thomas Emson's VAMPIRE TRINITY series and the sequel to 2009's SKARLET. Ex-squaddie Jake Lawton returns, now something of a Robin-Hood-like character, loved by the poor and marginalised, hated by the ruling classes - or Nebuchadnezzars, as they're known as.

The supporting cast is international: joining our survivors from the first book are a motley crew of Eastern European pit fighters and Chinese immigrants, pushed to make a stand against the ever growing vampire hordes as the English scurry in fear. And just about everyone stands out. Emson has a keen eye for detail and uses it to quickly set one character apart from another, even with minor players.

Style-wise, this is a thriller. Emson doesn't hold back. The story blasts off the first page and never stops for breath. The proses is as stripped back as ever, so sharp that you might very well cut your fingers while reading. There's even more of a cinematic quality than before; you can practically hear the swelling strings as you read, tension building to crescendo in true Hollywood blockbuster style.

Like its predecessor, KRIMSON is a cracking read. If you like your vamps dirty and sparkle-free, and your writing pulpy, Emson will see you right.
