Seize the day. Survive the night.

Let me state at the outset, I typically avoid books that feature zombies, werewolves, private investigators or vampires.
I 100% absolutely loved David Searls' other books so I made an exception for the vampire-focus of this one, but did not finish it, giving up at the 100 page mark.
Not a knock on the book, I just like tightly coiled tales and this story was told in too leisurely a fashion for my tastes. Fans of Stephen King's later work should find much to enjoy here, as characters rather than pl

I really enjoyed this book! I gave up on vampire fiction a couple years ago, because even the stories that claim to put a "new spin" on vamps tend to be predictable. But Bloodthirst In Babylon was a refreshing reunion with those creatures of the night that, deep down, every horror fan truly loves. Not to mention the author did a smash up job of following a huge cast of characters, while managing to make them all seem real. Highly recommended.

Was not a fast paced book. took me weeks to read it. kept putting it down and reading other books and coming back to it. Real slow pace.
