The sheer scope and variety of vampire literature never ceases to amaze. Some novels are blood-sodden orgies, where the hero is a cross between Jack The Ripper and Casanova. Others are subtle love stories with just a sprinkling of vampirism to help season the tale.
In Destiny Of The Vampire Tina Traverse introduces her own unusual take on the genre.
Two brothers, Declan and Sebastian St, Clair are washed up on an island which, although apparently deserted, is actually inhabited by the mysterious Christian and his vampire family. The brothers are turned into vampires but are forced to flee the island after Declan becomes uber-friendly with Mrs Christian.
Vampire induced immortality, however, is not all it’s cracked up to be, and we follow their individual journeys into debauchery and despair.
After nearly killing yet another cuckolded husband, the brothers escape prison, to be taken under the care of Hope Serenity, a behavioural therapist who is a vampire from their past, and who also happens to be the true love of Sebastian. Or Declan. Or perhaps both.
What are the dark secrets that drove the two brothers on their self-destructive paths?
All is revealed in the kind of blood soaked climax that would have had the audiences of Peter Cushing’s day swooning in the aisles.
Tina Traverse has created an interesting blend of romance, tragedy and carnage, with characters who retain enough humanity and pathos to retain the readers interest right until that gut wrenching climax.
