    Don't Bother

    I love vampire fiction but this is one you'll want to avoid. The story is trite, boring and confusing. There are so many characters that it's nearly impossible to keep track of who is who and the characterization is almost nonexistent. On top of this, the prose is elementary school level at best. Sorry to be a downer but this one's not that hot.

    Soldiers¿ Crossing, Alabama is home to Trackers, a dysfunctional extended family bound by blood and family ties. Some say the Trackers are cursed, that their blood is tainted because in the Antebellum South, their ancestors were cruel to their slaves. There were even Trackers who would return runaway slaves to their masters. <P> The family mansion of Sugar Gum is being torn down, releasing an evil that reaches out to blood. The Trackers are turned into vampires, but one of them warns Jacob Tracker before committing suicide. He and some of his kin kill the vampires but not before another Tracker is turned into a creature of the night. Franklin Tracker intends to turn every Tracker into a vampire but Jacob is just as determined to stop him. <P> IN THE BLOOD is a horror novel in which the good versus evil theme is given new meaning. Stephen Gresham has written a compelling novel that is impossible to put down until the last page is turned. The characters seem very real, especially the vampires, who are very different from one another because some still retain shreds of humanity. Fans of vampire lore are going to love reading this horror novel. <P>Harriet Klausner
