A brilliant mix of science, horror, romance and vampires!,
This review is from: Worth Their Weight In Blood (Paperback)
As an avid fan of all things 'horror' with a keen interest in science this was the perfect book for me!
The transformation of Scarlet from shamed single mum to someone very special indeed kept me wanting to read even when it was time to get off the train! This book mixes scientific knowledge around the evolution of humankind with mystery, romance and a touch of ethical consideration. I was able to learn whilst enjoying a damn good story!
The relationship between Scarlet and her mother played a key part of the story and I was able to emphasise with her many on so many levels. The development of the story towards its unexpected conclusion raised many questions within me from those of ethics to feminism ideals but not in a 'text book' way, more of a gentle nudge whilst engrossed in the fantasy...
The other key players in the story were well written with true depth and again I could imagine each and everyone of them as if I knew them personally...
I really cannot wait for a sequel to see what has become of Scarlet, Ruby, Helios and to learn more about the mysterious Roman... please start writing it Carole!
