I know your probably sick of the comparison, but yes...I'm on the sick of sparkly-need to find my mate or die vampires. It just seems that with age comes the lessening of certain emotions, so when you take a being who is already a fierce predator and enhance his abilities with age, how can he suddenly become LOVING. Something that is already predominately dark, would probably embrace it's nature as opposed to fighting it, as time moves on. Which brings us to this refreshing read. I admit, to describe this book in a few words is quite impossible. Beautiful darkness does come to mind but you have to mix it in with morbid fascination and embrace the gory and horrific scenes. I'm not a big fan of the Nazi era. Everything I have read or watched on it frankly makes me sick to my stomach, to know that humans are capable of such horrors. This book brings out a little of that, even though it is mixed in with a conspiracy theory and paranormal/horror entities. All in all it was a good read. I didn't have a problem following the story and I will say this: The scenes are very vivid and quite graphic. The author did a wonderful job with the descriptions. It was very easy to imagine his world. I would not hesitate to snag another book by this author! I quite enjoyed the dark read!!
