    Stand up and cheer

    This is not exactly a review.

    However, not too long ago, at the end of a long week, traveling to a conference that I had helped organize, leading a day-long workshop, running two short sessions... by the end of the week, I was exhausted. So when we got up at 4 in the morning to go to the airport for the flight home, I was tired, depressed, ready to run away and hide.

    And First Blood, by Sarah A. Hoyt writing as Sarah Marques, was just the medicine I needed. I got to meet Rene D'Herblay, despised by his father and older brother, relegated to the seminary -- and watched him fight the vampires who have taken over France. With communion wine, a flower pot... and, well, you will have to read the novella.

    Anyway, I read it sitting in the airport and on the airplane. And by the time I got to the end, when the three friends got together to say "one for all" and "all for one" and the final line, where René embraces his fantasies and names himself...

    I very nearly got up and cheered in the middle of the airplane!

    So if you like that kind of a story, with swashbuckling heroes learning to stand up for what is right... I think you'll like First Blood. I know I did. And if you want to stand up and cheer, I'll understand.
