NIGHT BROTHERS - A VAMPIRE NOVEL is an exemplary horror thriller, a chilling blend of straight-up occult horror with the pacing and excitement of an action thriller. The pace accelerates smoothly and in the story’s latter stages moves to its climax at breakneck speed. Alison and Travis have settled down to manage a small-town newspaper when mysterious and lethal animal attacks start occurring. Parallel with that we are shown Navarra’s occult practice, controlling animals to attack residents as c ...more

A decent riff on Salem's Lot. Read it if you're a fan of vampire stories or to a lesser, extent, killer animal stories. ...more

Bizarre animal attacks in the small, drought-plagued town of Bristol Springs are only a prelude to something much deadlier - Navarra. Ageless daughter of the night, she awakens after a century's sleep, determined to exact revenge on the town and fulfill what her persecutors had denied her over a century before.

Pretty decent read, though, IMHO, a good fifty pages could have been shaved off without hurting the story any.
