Vampires walk among us. Appraising our houses, policing our neighborhoods, crossing our borders. We understand there will be biting and an occasional conversion. These are small sacrifices for the hot thrill. We do worry about vampires popping up in positions of power. They are evolved, difficult to slay, not hot. A backlash grows; but are we far too late? Victor Thetherson is nearly cured. The treatment buries the charisma and confidence that only vampirism seems able to resurrect, and snuffs his rekindled love affair with ex-wife Barbara. Victor can’t trust himself as a vampire and doesn’t want to live with himself otherwise. Eugene Foreman dispenses wisdom on his Sage Slayer site, offs vamps when convenient, and romances Amberly Thetherson. His sensei, the Civil War Soldier, begs Eugene to slay Victor before he realizes his deadly inheritance. Victor versus Eugene, round two in an ancient war. With Morbius Reborn, our time at the top of the food chain is coming to an end.
Cassandra's Review- Let me start by saying this is not kid friendly in any way. The first book was crafted perfectly and I was eager to get started with book 2. The second book is ok as a standalone but should be read after book one in order for you to get the most impact on the story. There is some humor but to me the story is a bit dragged out, of course as it is a trilogy I did expect it could not be finished so easily. I would recommend for older adults as it is more of that kind of setting but you must have thirst for vampires or this is just not going to hit home.
Harris Gray combines the writing talents of duo Allan Harris and Jason Gray. Together, they have written three novels, two screenplays, a Christmas play and a collection of stories from Jason’s younger days. An early version of their novel Java Man was a finalist in the Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers contest. Allan is a former guest columnist for The Denver Post and Jason owns Crowfoot Valley Coffee and Crowbar, land of rumor and embellishment.
Their collaboration began in Jason’s coffee shop. Allan wrote and eavesdropped as Jason entertained his customers. One day, Allan found a little yellow notepad waiting for him, crammed to the margins with Jason’s exploits. Allan typed them, touched them up, and called it good; but Jason had other ideas. As their tales converged and became inseparable, Harris Gray emerged. While the two couldn’t be more different in how they think and write, Harris says,
“There is something wonderful and incredibly cohesive when we create a story together.” In Gray’s words, “We’re something less than Sybil and more than Siamese twins.”
I received a complimentary copy of book 1 and 2 in the trilogy.
