They say curiosity killed the cat. In Michael Allen’s case, the saying proved incomplete. All it got him was a vampire bite.

Twenty years later, Michael has crafted a comfortable life for himself in a small town in the Midwest, removed from as many human interactions as possible. He’s even gone so far as to forgo human blood, instead making use of artificial plasma. Unable

The Binder's Daughter, Matt Hofferth

Fantasy Writing, Vampires, And A Dash Of Romance...

The title of this book is somewhat deceiving as the story is told from Michael's perspective. Beginning with his normal young adult life in Chicago and taking the reader through his brutal transition to vampire, this novel continues into the present day where our hero leads a solitary life. Haunted and tortured by the memories surrounding the night he was bitten, Michael maintains a lonely existence, fighting

I think this is the first time I've read a vampire romance book that was written by a man. The main character is the male vampire, and it's written from his perspective, which was an interesting change for me. We see deep into the mind and heart of Michael, who was turned into a vampire at a fairly young age. Michael is a vampire with a conscience; he is very moral.

I really enjoyed the story, the legends, and the sweet romance between two paranormal creatures. There was also some good action thr

Recommends it for: folk who enjoy their urban fantasy with a hint of Japanese folklore
A great first novel, though having read some of Matt's fiction on his blog a while back I wasn't entirely surprised. There could definitely be some improvements but the overall story and execution were fantastic and I can't wait to read the next instalment (get writing!). Featuring vampires, shapeshifters, Japanese folklore and a little romance from the perspective of the vampire. Well worth a read.

Review to come.

A great first release from a new author. Likable characters, very fast-paced and interesting plot. I love the mix of vampire and samurai lore. The tech-savvy vampire is also an interesting twist.

I really became attached to the characters, and can't wait for the next book to reveal what's in store for them in the future.

It's my book... I'm biased :-). Please give it a read and an honest review. Obviously, I wouldn't put it out there if I didn't believe in the story. ...more

Electrical engineer by day. Aspiring author by night. Matt Hofferth hopes to one day realize his dream of becoming a full time writer, but until then, he still plays the part of mild-mannered professional as he must. His hobbies, apart from writing on his lunch break or whenever time finds him, include helping out as an assistant football coach at local Westfield High and being an avid video gamer ...more
