I came across Wayne Mallow's facebook page by accident about a year ago and very happy I did. I love books about Vampires but was looking for something different. Something other then the mortal girl falling in love with the wicked vampire. I'm not knocking those kind of books but you will find something completely different with Whitechapel Road A Vampyre Tale. I loved how the author incorporated Jack the Ripper into his tale. I couldnt put the book down and I'm anxiously looking forward to it' ...more

Whitechapel Road is a vampire novel by Niagara Falls resident Wayne Mallows that goes back to the 1800s and Victorian England in the good old days of Jack the Ripper, but in this version, vampires abound. Specifically, a female vampire named Mary who uses the patriarchal and often misogynistic belief systems of the times to her advantage as she runs amok in London, taunting the clueless police, but more than anyone, she taunts a man named Aremis who was engaged to a woman he thought was a simple ...more

When my friend contacted me that he had written a book, I sighed and did what any friend would do - I bought the book and sat down for what has since become known as the mercy read. *grin*

By the time I was a couple of chapters in I was unable to put the book down and all plans were scrapped until I emerged from the other end with the well known book hangover we experience when we have taken that journey with an exceptional story.

As you would suspect from the title, Wayne has intertwined the fam

From the title alone, one knows in broad strokes where this book is headed, but none-the-less, the journey to get there is alot more interesting than I initially suspected it would be.

A Vampire tale in the Victorian Tradition, indeed set in the Late Victorian period obviously, it follows a somwhat familiar narrative, if given some interesting twists. The vampiric attack. The victim who becomes a monster. It also features some of the better elements of good crime drama; the cat and mouse game bet

This was a very good storyline. Not the gory but a true story line of how a vampire really has to live and deal with everyday life. I really enjoyed how aremis tries to live with a curse that was bestowed on him but also how Jacquelyn (Mary as she was known in the beginning) taunts Aremis. It seems as if everything is a game to her. Great book.

Meet Aremis. He's idealistic, naive, and lacks self-awareness. Being turned into a vampire doesn't obstruct or destroy these traits, but what does become apparent as he struggles to understand his new existence is that being a vampire tests his ethics and morals. His unwillingness to be less than human is what drives his story. His sister, Temperance, has the strength and nerve to show Aremis what he has become and to help him on his way to London, where he hunts the streets. There he finds hims ...more

From stark and gripping cover art to an instantly intriguing tale written in the Olde English sense of history and time, I was captured from beginning to end with this novel. I wasn't sure what genre I was getting into until well beyond the first chapters and then the book exceeded my expectations given I wasn't prone to reading mysteries or thrillers. This book genuinely transcends classic genres; anyone enjoying gothic, mysteries, thrillers, supernatural, vampire or historic fiction tales woul ...more

Book One of the Vampyre Tales by Wayne Mallows.

Awesome reading. First of a planned series of several books.
The second one is now available also.

Begins in the mid 1800's and portrays the start of a human turned into a Vampire who moves to London during the same period as the Jack the Ripper saga.
Historically accurate information and the author's imagination makes for a terrific story.

Highly recommended for reading by anyone who enjoys a good mystery/whodunit style of book.
