Old enemy awakes when curious folks come snooping around
There's something fantastic about reading a vampire novel every once in a while, they are usually free of the daily grind and every day problems, vampires can be both dark, deadly and romantic, you can argue for your life with one, that option isn't always available if you however deal with a werewolf, now that's an obstacle that is hard to cross. Ray Garton has penned a sequel to his marvelous first entry; Live Girls, which by the way was hot and amazing and totally delectable. In this novel the action resumes almost twenty years later, few characters come back, Davey and Casey are now married but their past is still haunting them, a curious thrill seeker has hired two private detectives to follow the New York Times journalist, Benedeck to his hideaway and to probe him about the past, to find out if vampires are real, if they in deed exist. The problem is that they are indeed real, and as long as they are left alone they hunt and abuse in their dark chambers, when they are seeked out by careless humans who want to make a buck they turn into vengeful creatures, killing and whiping out anyone who wants to out them and disrupt their sweet, syrupy pleasure of using and consuming humans. The problem is clear, vampires that survived are threatened again and this time they won't give up easily, they will go out and punish anyone who stands in their way.Was this review helpful?

Night Life picks the story up in the future, but the abuse and hunger isn't any smaller. In fact the vampire emporium has really grown in the adult industry, using the primal human tug to eh-chant and attract people with money into it's clutches. In my eyes that has diminished their cool, the tingling, dark and corrosive vampiric desires was replaced by something cheap and dirty, hard to bond over. The novel was a nice read, I enjoyed it in one day, because I simply had to know what was going to happen next, but it was a bit weaker than the first, I don't know why everyone finds the need to compare the two but it's almost impossible considering how good this author is. His writing is so rich and fluid, his ideas without bounds, tickling our imagination and making readers out of the most stubborn people, who somehow have to have more. I hope that there will be a third book in this series, as I feel that the idea pool hasn't been drained yet when it comes to this story line. Some of the things that happened were shocking, it would be nice to see the aftermath of this little battle. I must however hope for a better cover, this one was really ugly, that's hardly a good thing.
