I’m always hesitant to review vampire novels. The genre seems done to death. But Blood and Spirits by Dennis Sharpe is a worthy entry in the field. No sparkly vampires here. The blood suckers are true creatures of the night, drifting through a moral swamp of prostitution and the restless undead.
A taut mystery lies at the core of the story, as the vampire heroine, Veronica, struggles to understand the net that’s tightening around her, and the reader comes along for the ride. The book is soaked in threat.
The author, Dennis Sharpe, has an original voice and a seamless writing style. If you like your vampires on the darker side, you’ll probably enjoy Blood and Spirits. 5 Stars.
