Written by Jay Michael Wright 2nd
This edition is an origin story that introduces the readers to Talon a main character that through great tragedy is born a new personality. Talon is a young man that loses his family and through extraordinary circumstances becomes more than just someone but really something evil who only wants revenge for the loss of his family. This tale of death and rebirth is filled with a blood lust that the reader can taste and only right so given that the demon talon has become is a vampire. These are vampires the likes of which resemble movies like the Lost Boys in terms of violence, bloodshed and the need to feed and use fear in order to fulfill the need of blood. Talon and his Mistress are not vampires like those in Twilight series instead they are demonic beasts filled with blood lust and want to inflict terror in their victims. Talons main drive is revenge and his mistress wants control and blood which leads Talon to become in control of his senses yet a near slave for the blood of his victims. The setting is later after Talons conversion and his mistress has found the killers of his family and the ship the killers are on is where this epic scene of violence and revenge unfolds. Get ready for a fast paced story, a story filled with action and shadowed by darkness on the high seas of a great ocean. This was a short story filled with just enough back story about the characters and the story to become hooked and wanting more. What affected me was the pure rage for revenge and the power to achieve what is needed to gain the desire of revenge. This story is not for the faint of heart and I was very pleased by the ambience and description of the ship and characters involved. The dialogue was a perfect balance between action, intrigue and story flow. I look forward to the next story involving Talon and his new family because I sense a reawaking of talons humanity.
This is a quick visit to their world, and I’d really like more. The vampire hunters – the Birds of Prey – are an intriguing creation. There’s a lot going on behind the scenes, so the length of the book doesn’t reflect the depth of characters.
All in all, a sexy little start to what I hope will develop into a series.
I really liked the old brutal vampire style but I would have liked more description of the characters, hopefully this will come in the next book
