A different approach to the supernatural
Cammon, like Laura Hamilton, writes about worlds with varying monsters such as vampires, lycanthropes, and others. But, unlike Laura Hamilton, Cammon's female characters do not jump in and out of bed with the various monsters, and he doesn't spend endless paragraphs describing various garments. Thank God. Cammon has developed the inhabitants of his world in a refreshing way. Jarvis, the vampire, works as a hit-man for local street-gangs, and can't understand human emotions or even that batteries on a portable radio can go dead. David, the lycanthrope, works as a veterinarian technician (after all, he really understands animals), and has a father whose approval he craves. Nick, a human, is in the unenviable position of being a student of the occult who accidentally awakens a real monster and has to flee for his life. The most horrific character is a beautiful woman named Scarlet who decides that certain individuals need killing, and then throws herself (at times literally) into the task. These individuals interact as friends, family, companions, enemies - in short, all the ways that humans interact. Even though some of them aren't human. This is without question a different approach to the tales of the supernatural.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
