This is an incredibly in-depth tale, which doesn't make much sense to start with. As the story progresses though, and you get more information on who Tabitha is and what she can do, it starts to make more sense. Ben is a boy at the start of this book, and in his fifties by the end. I think this is one of the rare occasions when I have read about the main character ageing in such a way. It certainly made for a nice change, although it did get a bit confusing when the age changed with no notice or warning given. There is action and suspense in here, as well as courage, friendship and loyalty. The English that is spoken is from a few centuries ago. With a detailed backstory, you get the whole thing - start, middle and end (of this book). It does end on a minor cliffhanger, so fair warning. I would have no hesitation in recommending this to anyone who wants to read something to get their teeth into, and likes vampires with a difference. * I received this book from the author in return for a fair and honest review. * Merissa Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!
Author Michael W Holman's debut novel spins a unique tale that starts in the MC Ben Hammond's life when he was a young, fragile boy. This first book in the series (yes there is a second part to the awesomeness!) reads almost like two parts of a series by itself. The first part of the story gives us an in depth introduction into Ben's life, introduces us to his family, friends, work buddies and people in his life that had a direct influence on him. They all play integral parts in the story and unfortunately are destined to get sucked into what is currently, unbeknownst to him, a whole dark side of his life. I loved the way the author portrayed the MC. character and utter ordinariness as his strength. Work, run, work, run and...in his spare time engage in a centuries old vampire war. The second part... Let there be Vampires and Aliens, yes...you heard me right! You have to read this story to believe it. Great Reading! Looking forward to part 2
