Overview

In the underbelly of the eastern US seaport of Bay City, supernatural and non-supernatural creatures alike strive to understand the meaning of life, to belong, or simply exist. David is one of them. He is far, far away from his clan. Before Nick, his only friend used to be a vampire named Jarvis. However, Nick's only gift seems to be more of a curse: he brings change wherever he goes.
When the three unlikely companions finally find the answers to their questions, they also find more mysteries needing to be solved. Eventually, they will all wish not to have been present on the evening when everything changed forever. Were the answers they received worth trading everything to darkness? After all, shadows lie. But what's a supernatural creature to do where the shadows' lies carry the promise of home?

    Moon Oak

    This particular oak is usually veiled in mist, and sunlight doesn't reach it much. But when the moon shines, it casts a glow upon the tree. Cats can come here to speak with StarClan.

    A fresh approach

    My interest in supernatural fiction has waned as of late...until this book. J.E. Cammon brings forth an exciting tale of friends, family, revenge, hatred, prejudice, lies, and the occult. He sprinkles a little humor in there to mitigate the somewhat harsh nature of the setting while giving the reader realistic relationships between the characters. This is a fresh approach to a genre that has been flooded with sappy mush. If there really were creatures in the night, they probably wouldn't go killing every thing in sight...that wouldn't be prudent. That is how Cammon writes, with an eye for believability. What I like most is that this is not a book written for teenage girls, there are no sexy vampires seducing underage females in dark creepy 'romantic' rooms. There is the 'Soul Eater' Vampire who thrives on proximity to death, not sinking teeth into fleshy throats; the easy going Lycanthrope that rides his wave of rage like a drug, to the brink of loosing himself in it; the awkward grad student of the occult who accidentally awakens things that should most likely be left asleep, and finally the 'Hunters', who judge others not for their actions, good or bad, but for what they are on the surface. It's different. It's good. Quick read. Five stars.

    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.
