“Blood Society,” by Jeffrey Thomas is a thrilling horror novel infused with an exciting subtext of gangster lore. Thomas uses this unique hybrid to narrate the fascinating story of Attilio Augusta, a man transformed in his youth in Sicily into a creature somewhat like a vampire, but an original creation with its own set of rules.

Thomas is more interested in fine character development and creating his own mythology than sticking to any tired old myths or versions of the undead. Anyone familiar w

This is a beautifully conceived story of a man turned into a creature similar to a vampire in 1909 and it follows his existence through to 1996.

It's a terrific read, blending real life crime from the Capone and later mafiosi eras with more conventional horror conventions.

Another book I reviewed in detail on Amazon.

What you need to know: Brand new vampires unlike anything you've seen before engage in well thought out action set pieces over a fifty year plus span of time.

Al Capone meets Raziel (LEGEND OF KAIN: SOUL REAVER). Historically accurate to the detail and the characters are well-fleshed out. It is hard to find a unique vampire story of late, but BLOOD SOCIETY is just that. A fresh spin on vampires and the supernatural in general (and no they don't sparkle!). One of the most intriguing aspects of this story is the amount of metaphysical spec that Mr. Thomas puts into it. For anyone that has enjoyed the alter reality of games such as SOUL REAVER and SILENT ...more

Elegant, sexy horror. Entranced by the opener in the catacombs of Sicily, through 1950s Capone-era Chicago to modern day Asian monster gangs. So glad I took a chance on this one. Not my usual fare - horror - and I enjoyed every minute of it.
