Al Capone meets Raziel (LEGEND OF KAIN: SOUL REAVER). Historically accurate to the detail and the characters are well-fleshed out. It is hard to find a unique vampire story of late, but BLOOD SOCIETY is just that. A fresh spin on vampires and the supernatural in general (and no they don't sparkle!). One of the most intriguing aspects of this story is the amount of metaphysical spec that Mr. Thomas puts into it. For anyone that has enjoyed the alter reality of games such as SOUL REAVER and SILENT HILL, this is a real treat. For the historian, the Part I is incredibly accurate down to the first recorded drive-by shooting that made Hymie Weiss so popular in his heyday before Capone's chopper squads finally got to him. On the literary side, the book is very well written both grammatically and in terms of pacing. Great dialogue, a plot that maintains momentum and interest, and a once-cliche theme becomes so twisted in Jeffrey Thomas's hands that it lures you in like a meat market train wreck. He makes an already vile concept very disturbing at times. Without spoiling, one of my favorite themes is that of circus romance embraced with true Jeffrey Thomas flair between his horrendous Two-Face mobster and a most unlikely bride. Well worth the read!

Very very COOL novel. Highly recommended. From the sicilian catacombs to Capone-era Chicago, follow a very original vampire from the early 1900s Sicilian catacombs to Capone-era Chicago to modern-day run-ins with demonic Asian gangs. Violent, sexy, elegant horror, and like I said, just a very COOL read.
