Not your average vampire story
on 7 February 2015
I bought this book with low expectations, to be totally honest: another book about whiny vampires trying to fight their instincts, falling in love etc.
I'm glad I was wrong. Dark Soul Silenced is a fast-paced fantasy about a very brave vampire, Daniel. Yes, Daniel realised he's become a vampire and tried to fight the evil inside him, but both the plot and character development made this book different than the average vampires stories.
Along the twist and turns of the plot, Daniel manages to master his new incredible powers, but at the same time he faces the need of having human blood. And fights that. He then reaches a quite particular level of consciousness where he's a vampire but he's not, somehow.
I think this is one of the most complex and detailed development of a vampire character I've ever read so far, one of those characterisations that it makes you think about the pain "special" people might experience in their everyday life.
I'm glad to have read this book and will definitely head on book two. There are few things that haven't been explained on book 1 so I'm curious to see how things will end up.
