Book Review: Dark Thirst



Dark Thirst by Sara Reinke

I was feeling the need for a quick, vampire-y read, and grabbed this from our romance genre collection at the library.

This featured a slightly different vampire protagonist - Brandon is not only one of the "Brethren" (from Kentucky!), but he is a deaf-mute from a brutal attack when he was a child.

This book read a lot like a fanfic to me, and while the lead character was different (I mean, seriously, a deaf vampire? That's new!), and the heroine was alright, I wasn't as drawn into this world as I normally am by this genre. Lots of foreshadowing, lots of family machinations, obligatory sex and a big showdown.

An adequate read, but not one where I couldn't wait to see what would happen next...
