Debut author, Bryan Genesse introduces us to his first book:
“VampireS (€) X”:
I Am Demon. And God. The Last Of My Kind. Read My Story At Your Own Peril... a memoir of secrets revealed. Relentless, painfully honest, thrillingly intimate and a true account of anguish and immortality told by an author in hiding who after 1000 years might still walk amongst us. A stunning tale unlike any other in the genre, for the author, promises to dispel every lie, myth and fable told in all the made-up stories ever written about vampires. Spanning across continents and centuries from New York City to Italy to North Africa and deep into jungles of the Mayan Coast, the author weaves a relentless tale of infinite love, relentless wars and dancing with madness while divulging the realities of being an immortal...whose gender and sexual appetites are the biggest enigmas of all. A tsunami of revelations leads to the unimaginable: how anyone, whether mortal or immortal, can still turn a human into a vampire. If you do not believe this journal is NonFiction as soon as you start reading you will. If you do not read this memoir in one sitting; if instead, you decide to go to sleep—Do Not Turn Off The Lights. Believe me! The author does not require an invitation to enter your home that is a myth! This is...the Truth.
This is an interesting take on the common vampire theme. Written as a supernatural memoir, it has quite a few surprising twists. I loved it.
I really want to talk about some of the twists and revelations that are slowly revealed in the story. But I am committed to not revealing any spoilers.
The feelings of the vampire while recording thoughts are very evident and at times elicit a great deal of sympathy, this is a big part of the author’s genius. All of the characters come through as complex and very relatable. They are real, with conflicting desires and emotions.
I enjoyed the dialogue quite a bit, it was very witty at times and rather gritty sometimes.
There were many locales and time periods, which was entertaining. The scene setting is done well also.
The action was excellent.
The author describes his novel as an adult memoir with good reason, there are a handful of fairly sexy scenes.
I award “VampireS (€) X” a score of 4.5 stars. The score would have been much higher except for a large, double-handful of spelling errors I found. The author has had those corrected, so your reading will be much smoother.
