5.0 out of 5 stars Damn near Perfect.., 22 Jun. 2013
This review is from: Generation V (American Vampire Novel) (Mass Market Paperback)
Fortiude Scott is your normal underachieving 20 something trying to get by on a minium wage job with a degree in film theory thats not worth the paper its printed on, save that he also just happens to be the youngest scion of a Vampire family ruled by his almost 700 year old mother and his two siblings Prudence and Chivalry.

I didnt know what to expect when i picked up this book what i got was a clever and engaging read that manages despite the glut of Vampire books that are out there to put it own spin on the Myth Vampires are living creatures in this series they age and are born just not in the manner that humans are how this is handled and the fresh take on the Renfield story are some of the books best parts.

Yet its Fortiudes family and his relationship with them that is the real high light, Fortiudes family are Rich and Influcential there is no doubt ( at least in the case of his mother and Chivalry) that they love Fort, but there is also little doubt that a Vampire is very much a sociopath even Chivalry who seems the most 'Human' of Forts kin is by most definations a serial killer while Prudence Forts big sister seems almost psychopathic at times, for Fort raised by humans this creates moral difficulties not helped when he meets a Non Family vampire for the first time and realises that in comparsion his family are Saints.

Its Fort struggles to do the right thing that powers this tale, a para normal action adventure with heart very much in the vein of Patrica Briggs and Jim Butcher do yourself a favour and check it out.
