The mental fog engulfing him begins to clear and recognition dawns. The bodies of the dead belonged to people he loved. As he absorbs this information, a series of increasingly d ...more

I totally disliked this unrealistic book and am disappointed that the author did not, I'm assuming, write to the best of his ability. If someone handed me this book and told me it was from an anonymous author, I would have given it 2 stars for a first time author.
From the first page you get self indulgent writing.
David is a guy who is out shopping for a ring for his girlfriend Janine. "His gaze drifted to the white price tag beside it. Written in blue ink was a figure so astronomica

This is the story of David. He wakes up to a scene of slaughter. Body parts and blood are everywhere. his girlfriend and her family have been massacred and he has no recollection of how he got there or what happened.... Slowly things come back to him and he realizes he has become a ferocious killer, a vampire. How did he get to this place in his life?

If you have read Bryan Smith before then this story will come as no surprise. If you like your horror on the dark side and unrelenting and you have

This is now my second Smith title that I have read and reviewed, and at this point, I can safely say that I am simply not a fan. Although I rated his previous work DARK ONES at one star, I gave him a bit of a pass because it was my introduction to his work and I didn't want to be overly critical in my assessment.

Well... I think at this point, I firmly understand what kind of writer Smith is and the things I really don't like about BLOODRUSH and DARK ONES. As a positive though... I did feel like
The ending of this book made me mad. Granted, some of my favorite books have endings that are the opposite of what I want because I'm often rooting for the real villain of the story and for that truly unhappily ever after ending.

If you think all vampire tales have been told - are the same, then drink this one in and be both surprised and shocked. Not for the faint of heart it's much more realistic in it's horror than the typical "vampire" story. I mean, they are monsters after all...

When your d
If you think:
-setting up the scene is a unnecessary drag,
-more horror means higher piles of body's,
-every scene should be stuffed with dismembered body parts, preferably naked ones,
-motives for characters actions are not important,
-having a plot is boring....

then you're going to love this!

From the moment you start this book you find your self in the center of carnage and it doesn't ease up until the end. First few scenes i was like really shocked and wondered what is happening and so on. Then

Bloodrush has an interesting setup with a mysterious and dangerous female antagonist. However, once her motivation and events begin to unfold, the story seemed too familiar and predictable for me. Author Brian Smith is effective at moving the pace and painting graphic descriptions, but ultimately this feels like standard genre fare sprinkled with a handful of suspenseful moments.

The main character's psychological torment was the strongest element of the story and it is the main reason to pick th

Not a bad horror quick adrenaline rush of a read. When you're in the mood for some horror comic book gore this should hit the spot - nothing more than that and nothing less either.

Quite enjoyable vampire story with lots of gore and violence.
