    Really Good Book!

    I read this book while I was vacationing in Orlando and Clearwater, Flordia. I was (and still am) in a relationship with a terrific guy and this book made me think of the guy, because it talks heavily of love and lust. This book is excellent for showing that even throughout an eturnity, even a fictional vampire can love, hurt and lose love, too. Richard d'Orleans is an example, (even fictionally) of a totally normal human condition -- falling in love, being in a condition to where the other person is wrong for some reason, (in Richard's case, he will outlive any woman that he loves/has a relationship with because he's a vampire and will out live her) and Richard has a deep apperciation of life -- his and others. This is a wonderful sequel to 'Keeper Of The King.'

    Great Read!

    Another great read from Bennett and Elrod! I enjoyed this book just as much as the first one and look forward to more.

    His Father's Son

    pp. ISBN: 0671319817 Richard d¿Orleans became a vampire during the medieval times in Normandy. Richard knew almost from the start that he is not an evil person, but actually over the centuries loved (literally and figuratively) women. <P>In the present in Toronto, he goes by the name of Richard Dun. He has vowed to keep safe many a mortal including his godchildren but especially his beloved Stephanie married to CEO Luis Trujillo. When the emergency e-mail from Stephanie informs him that Alejandro found her, Richard immediately stops everything, including sleep, to fly to Texas to keep his beloved and her family safe. He is too late as everyone except maybe Michael is dead. He will track down the killer starting with Alejandro and enact vengeance, vampire style. <P>HIS FATHER¿S SON is an entertaining vampiric who-done-it that is reminiscent of the Forever Knight TV show. The story line is fast-paced and filled with action that is interrupted at times with flashback to Richard¿s past. These trips back through Richard¿s life provide insight into the character. Thus, the reader who wants action to the nth degree will feel a bit disoriented while those who relish deeper understanding of the hero will find the past enlightening. Nigel Bennett and P.N. Elrod have written an entertaining tale regardless of how much blood the reader desires to envision. <P>Harriet Klausner

    Well done!

    His Father's Son is a stand-alone sequel to Bennett/Elrod's first collaboration, Keeper of The King. Like the prequel, this novel is a blend of genres: thriller, fantasy horror, and a touch of romance. It features Richard Dun, a centuries-old vampire presently a Toronto-based security specialist, who is aided by Sabra, the Lady of the Lake who changed him, and Philip Bourland, Richard's political contact inside Her Majesty's Canadian government. In this story, Richard has two conflicts to solve. One is the fast-paced thriller that propels him to Texas in response to a friend in need. The other conflict involves Richard's internal struggles with father/son relationships over the centuries, some told in flashback. The two conflicts interweave through the novel in a tightening spiral. It is well crafted, emotionally haunting, and a thoroughly enjoyable read. Well done, Nigel and Pat. Well done.
