    Search and Destroy follows vampire hunter Sonja Blue as she goe

    Search and Destroy follows vampire hunter Sonja Blue as she goes to investigate why homeless people are dying at an alarming rate outside a small town in Washington.

    If your not familiar with Sonja Blue, she was created by Nancy Collins in 1989. Sonja has had 5 novels written about her and several short stories. Search and Destroy is the first new Sonja Blue adventure in 10 years.

    Sonja was only 18 years old when she was raped and fed on by a vampire. She was left on the street to die but miraculously survived and became a living vampire. She now spends time hunting vampires, ogres and demons. Think Buffy but more powerful, funnier and a lot scarier.

    My only problem with Search and Destroy is that I wish it was longer. Despite how short the story is, Nancy Collins does a great job of creating some characters that you quickly grow to like and she gives a good commentary on what its like to be an outcast from society. This is a fast paced story with a lot of action and is very well written, but I wanted more. Hopefully we will see more of Sonja Blue in the future.

    I Also Recommend:

    I'm a huge fan of Ms. Collins's work, especially the Sonja Blue

    I'm a huge fan of Ms. Collins's work, especially the Sonja Blue series. This short story, however, felt rather flat. Perhaps it was a limitation of the short story format, but this story had no surprises or even plot turns in its execution. In fact, it seemed more like a snippet from a larger story.

    The two supporting characters were fairly well-developed and had some humorous interactions, but there was no development or even explanations for the antagonist or even Sonja herself.

    On the plus side, I've always enjoyed the way Ms. Collins describes scenery and action. She conveys the essential pieces and paints an ideal picture in the reader's mind without droning on with unessential details.

    If you've read the rest of the Sonja Blue series, then this is probably essential reading just to continue her story. However, if you're new to the series, you're better off picking up the individual novels or the "Midnight Blue" collection to start with.
