REVIEW VAMPIRE: REVENGE BY MARK SHARLOW



VAMPIRE: REVENGE
MARTIN C. SHARLOW
GENRE: HORROR

SYNOPSIS

Raymond never asked to be a vampire, in fact he has no idea how he even came to be this way. The only thing he knows for certain is that he will not allow himself to become the monster that he spent his life hearing about in movies and legends. In an attempt to protect his loved ones from the danger he posed, he withdrew from his old life, hoping they could live a normal life in his absence.

Years later, he happens upon news that his family has died in an awful car accident and that his younger sister has gone missing. A quick visit to his hometown reveals a mess of mysteries connected to the tragedies in ways that baffle him, and a chance meeting with an unusual woman stirs feelings he did not think were possible for the undead to feel.





MY TAKE

2 STARS

I truly want to like everything I read, who wouldn't? The synopsis sounded very promising for this little novella (approx. 95 pages). Instead of really liking Vampire: Revenge, I had to settle on “just okay”.

The characters seemed to all have the same personality. None of the characters were clearly defined and fell flat for me. Two-dimensional characters all with the same personality doesn't get me excited.

As I stated before, this story is short and has very little in the way of dialog. I was mainly bouncing around in the head of the main character, Raymond, and it just wasn't pleasant. His thoughts seemed random and repetitive.

The author had a good idea with the plot and storyline, but it just wasn't executed very well.
