Jinn Nation

Once, the vampire Dylan had feared nothing and no one. He'd rampaged throughout the world on a seemingly never ending quest to fill his eternal years with the finest, most outrageous extravagances; with exquisite, soft-limbed young women and copious amounts of rich, vibrating blood. But life, however full of joy, inevitably changes.

Finding himself alone for the first time

Recommends it for: over 18's horror readers
I found this book difficult to get through at first - it seemed the characters were devoid of any redeeming features and so impossible to care about. I struggled on however, and I'm glad I did. The characters/plot and writing improved greatly.

I recommend this book to fans of horror and fantasy, who are over 18 yrs old because it's pretty 'horrific' and cold-bloodied: an example is eating the organs of a living womans body as she screamed in agony. Not a pleasant picture.

This book was broken into three parts. The first part was a little slower for me than the second two. It begins with Christa meeting Dylan and their tour around the United States where they meet up with the Jinn, a murderous and decadent group. (To add a slight disclaimer here, there was some graphic violence in this part. I would say it's not for the weak of heart!) Dylan, thinking he’s the last of his kind, is desperate for companionship, and Christa, afraid of her own uniqueness, feels safe w ...more

My initial reaction was this book is not for me! As I had won an e-book on a blog giveaway and had been asked for a review, I persevered. I am glad that I did! I have read Vampire books (not many) and enjoyed those. This book is a combination of vampires, cannibals termed Jinn, fairy like creatures and a girl with the ability to see into the minds of others - quite a combination. Although the gore element was not overdone it was a little excessive for me, the jinn are quite a turnoff! I also que ...more

For anyone that is a fan of vampire literature this is a book not to miss. I was intrigued when I first read about it and am glad I decided to read it. I was hooked almost instantly and didnt want to put it down once I started.

The main characters are Dylan - a vampire and Christa - who is what you could call a witch, but her origins are somewhat mysterious. They meet in the unlikely location of a Jinn bar one night and end up traveling together.

The character progression is very well done as well

Easily the worst book I have read this year!!

The writing is florid, the characterisations flat, high on horror and low on anything even remotely redemptive.....

I wanted to quit after the first couple of pages (something I almost never do) but it seems unreasonable to rate a book without reading it all the way through. And I need to rate it (to remind me not to buy anything else by this author...) Unkind but true.

Jinn Nation was very well written with a lovely writing style that flows so well. It is a unique and original story brining new mythologies to the sort of stale paranormal genre.
