Drawing Dead (Faolon O’Connor Book 1) takes you back to the 1930s era of organized crime when mobsters, gangsters and mafia bosses were somewhat common. Yet, author Brian McKinley has written a book that is far from stereotypical. Why? Because Faolan O’Connor isn’t just a gangster, he’s a freshly turned vampire. The expectations of those above him aren’t necessarily difficult for this tough-as-nails, cold-hearted killer or are they? Faolan’s superiors test him, and his so-called friends willingly turn their backs on each other to save their own necks. Whether or not McKinley’s young vampire will succeed in this new world or whether he’ll finally end up dead remains to be seen. From the get go, readers will likely be captivated by the cover. It fully captures the essence of Drawing Dead. Vampires don’t run around announcing to the world what they are, and the secrets that are fluidly woven throughout Drawing Dead are reflected not only from the cover but from page one. Admittedly, the scenes do jump around a bit, which can make it a little confusing at times. But there is so much action and intrigue embedded within the storyline that this is an aspect that can almost be overlooked. McKinley does a great job offering readers the opportuntiy to take a look at their own values and morals as Faolon seems to reconnect with his humanness. Of course, this may end up ending his life. Highly recommended – readers can feel the danger, the excitement and the horror of a vampiric gangster life in this pragmatic tale. Originally critiqued by the staff of Authors Talk About It
