Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Originally published in paperback in 1993, this horror extravaganza shows a first-time novelist laboring to milk a drop of originality from the tapped-out theme of global vampire takeover. The tale is set in Chicago's downtown Loop two years after a vampire uprising has decimated the human population and turned the city into a mausoleum ruled by the undead. These are not the sophisticated killing machines of other vampire apocalypse stories, but a headstrong, impulsive lot who have all but depleted their food supply and must feed sparingly on a small herd of human cattle penned up in the abandoned Merchandise Mart. This sets the stage for a Dirty Dozen scenario in which a troop of guerrilla mortals, most of whom assumed he or she was the last living human, unite to liberate the captives. Navarro (That's Not My Name) skimps on developing significant plot details like how the vampires rose to power and how one mortal has acquired mystic knowledge of the secret for destroying them focusing instead on individual stories of mortal and vampire survival that make up the mosaic narrative. This panoramic approach keeps the tale moving briskly in swift, cinematic cuts, but also ensures that individuals will never be in the spotlight long enough to transcend clich? character types: the cowardly collaborator, the martinet enemy lieutenant, the doomed couple who find love among the ruins. Essentially a war adventure with a supernatural twist, this novel is a competent if unremarkable addition to the modern vampire canon. (Nov. 1) FYI: This edition features a brief prequel and excerpt from a forthcoming sequel. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.

    OUTSTANDING!!!!

    I love supernatural, horror and urban fantasy books and read all that I can find. This is one of the best I have ever read and I read at least 10 books or more a week. Ms Navarro is an exceptional author and her urban fantasy series is very good as well. This book keeps you on the edge of your seat from the very beginning and never lets up. The apocolyptic plot line just added to the vampires. I highly recommend this book as well as her others.

    HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

    This Vampire scenario is believable. It was fascinating and apocalyptic without being too dark. It was an enjoyable read and I highly recommend it to all the Vampire lovers out there.

    Incredible Vampires

    <p> I've read vampire novels all my life. From Ann Rice to Brian Lumley, I've enjoyed the blood sucking creatures. <p> Afterage is the best of them all. There is so much I want to say about this book, I don't know. My favorite line in the entire book comes when a man finds his lover dead and Vampirific and he says something like, <p> '...and I buried her in the sun.' <p> Truly an excellent Book. Also try books like
