Rae and Layla are great characters, rounded, realistic and fun, and the perfect vehicles to explore the 'mundane' side of vampirism. Now, 'mundane' does not mean boring. Think instead, 'practical'. Other authors might skip merrily over reality in their vampire novels, but Hammond doesn't. She doesn't shy from the day-to-day issues faced by vampire-kind, and in fact, she makes them part and parcel of the plot. For example, how do you feed if the thought of killing innocent humans repulses you? And yet animal blood leaves you weak and in pain? Entrap some paedophiles, of course!
Hammond adds to vampire lore by endowing her vamps with Gifts, which adds their own complications. There's a very funny scene when Rae is giving a human a piggy-back and he succumbs to her particular Gift with very messy consequences.
Give Darkly Dreaming a try ... you'll find something to captivate you.
Although there are quite a few original vampire traits, Chloe Hammond has brought hers well and truly up to date giving them not only many new features, which were outstanding, but also every day problems to solve too. It seems that every possible aspect has been thought about throughly. The story itself flows beautifully with written words that melted into wonderful imagery in my mind. The gruesome stuff has the passion of a hunter and the love story a hunt for the ultimate passion. What more could a reader want.?
Absolutely loved it Chloe Hammond. I hope to see more! By the way this book has to have the best opening line ever. Brilliant!
I wish to thank Chloe Hammond for a copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review
Chloe Hammond has managed to create a novel that is tense, exciting, emotional, scary and funny. She deals with issues like divorce, and child abuse, which might make some readers uncomfortable, but it is clearly well researched, and it makes the situations more real for the attention to detail. In this book, the humans are the monsters, and the vampires are the most human people. I would highly recommend it, whether you're into vampires or not.
While it wasn't for me I can see why it would appeal to others.
