Review: Vampire Blood by Kathryn Meyer Griffith

Title: Vampire Blood
Author: Kathryn Meyer Griffith
Pages: 236

Purchase: Amazon |

Book Description:

For years the vampire family lived in the shadows, hidden by the night and people's disbelief; feeding on animals or throw away people who would never be missed. As the family moves into an old theater to cover up their crimes, the youngest are restless and determined to live as they like. Killing and feeding when and where they want. Feeding on who they want. Only the oldest vampires have managed to keep them in check. But no longer.Unaware of the nightstalking menace, the townspeople of Summer Haven, Florida, blithely go about their daily lives until, one by one, they disappear. Screams are heard in the night. Fear grows. But the lost are never found...alive.Jenny Lacey and her father, who are hired to renovate the old Grand Theater, can't escape when they find themselves caught up in the middle of the vampire's war. In the end, it's up to Jenny, her brother and her ex-husband to get rid of the bloodthirsty fiends that are destroying their town...if they can.

The first characters we are introduced to in this novel are the vampires, which I really liked, it made the novel much more interesting having met them instead of our main characters first. By doing so the author gave them . . . well, life I suppose, it made me think of them as people, made me humanize them.

Soon after we are introduced to Jenny, who had been divorced twice and finally came home. At one time a best-selling writer the dream was torn away from her with her first marriage and now she is drifting along working with her father on small home repairs and painting houses.

Jenny learns from her brother Joey that the old movie theater that closed down, The Rebel, has recently been bought and that the new owner is going to reopen. Jenny, soon gets herself and her father hired to clean, paint and do repairs to help get it ready for opening night after a chance meeting of the new, somewhat eccentric seeming owners.

Animals are being found dead by what police believe to be cults but soon people are disappearing then suddenly Jenny's father goes missing and Jeff, her first husband shows up at her door...

I really enjoyed this novel; it kind of reminded me a horror movie, because I could easily picture the events that happened in Vampire Blood happening and me just sitting back and watching.

The beginning of the book was slightly slow but once you get to know the characters a little you get into the novel and it is pretty fast paced and progresses nicely.

I think I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a good late night paranormal horror book.

  1. Thank you for the lovely review on my VAMPIRE BLOOD, Holly. Originally it came out in 1991 from Zebra paperbacks. I'm so glad you liked it. It's one of 10 of my old novels I've been rewriting and my new publisher (Damnation Books/Eternal Press) has been/will be bringing out again between June 2010 and July 2012. I actually have a backstory essay (and 3 others about 3 other of my older books that go back 27 years now)on it called THE STORY OF VAMPIRE BLOOD...with mention of Dean Koontz, who helped me get an agent in 1990 to help sell this book and three others to Zebra Books. I can send it to you if you'd like to read/or run it here. Warmly, author Kathryn Meyer Griffith
