Customer Review

on 16 January 2013
I so wanted to enjoy this book; I'm not a fan of the run-of-the-mill modern vampire offerings currently available, but the storyline for Ashman's book sounded really original, plus I am an avid fan of all things ancient Egyptian, and to have it mixed up with the supernatural (another favourite of mine) meant that I was anticipating a brilliant read. And the storyline is indeed great, I love the whole idea of egyptology with its hidden tombs and vampirism with a twist thrown in. The major, huge flaw is the writing, which in my opinion is contrived, cliched and lazily written. So many scenarios could have been lifted with creating atmosphere and setting the scene, but the opportunities were missed and there were too many "he said, she said" areas, and basic description, giving the impression that Ashman just wanted to get the thing written and out of the way. Which is a shame, because had it excited me more I would have probably wanted to hear more from this author. Maybe his other books are much better, but sadly I can't be bothered to find out...
