    Another wonderful short story by Cawdron From the onset Vampire had me on the edge of my seat I found myself losing track of time while reading as I could not set it aside Cawdron just has a way with words and you get lost in the detailed descriptions of his characters and environments To be honest I wasn't even close to being ready for the surprising twist at the end Keep up the great work Peter and I can't wait for what's next in store

  2. Jason Jason says:

    This is another Cawdron Masterpiece although a bit darker than his usual taleFrom the outset it should be noted that this is a short story just to prevent any confusion and stop the usual complaints about lengthHowever even given that it is a short story you won't be disappointedThis is an intelligent story that is dark intriguing and that you should not read alone at night Cawdron does a brilliant job of using his characters to provide a riveting tale about a murder and a suicide investigation that isn't what it seems I don't want to give any away needless to say that the story is uiet dark in its themes but Cawdron has not gone overboard in his descriptions of the key elements so those that may be interested but are possibly put off by the warnings shouldn't be too concerned If you have read similar material before such as other Vampire books or crime novels you should be ok with the themes in this bookAs usual Cawdrons characters are incredibly well written having been in the Police I was impressed with the uality of his writing in relation to procedural content and the characters attitudes and actionsHis main protagonist Jane his excellent and as with all his books is one of the highlights of the storyThis is a book that will leave you guessing and wondering and even when you have finished you will still be wondering if what happened really happenedDon't miss out on another incredibly dark thriller by Peter Cawdron you won't be disappointed

    I rather liked this It's fairly short but leaves you wanting A uniue twist to the vampire legend but with the masterful original Dracula as an inspiration

  4. Rikke Rikke says:

    Though only 54 pages this is an awesome reinterpretation of Bram Stoker's Dracula If you tend to believe in the existence of vampires and find the idea disturbing it might be wise to avoid this story but if you like me just dislike horror on a manageable level this is a great read eerie suspenseful and slightly discomforting in the best possible way and very compelling It's a book that makes you think of plausibility and the truth of mythologies I guess I'm attracted to unsettling slightly creepy stories at the moment but still this reads as sinister not graphic suicide is part of the premise as snow is part of the setting but the true horror is something entirely different and less tangible Set in recent day Idaho it reads in parts very much like a crime novel conveying a police and psych approach This works well in regards to giving the story a realistic feel and it supports the suspense as does the Idaho setting The backdrop of chilly winter storms establishes a subtle and uite eerie baseline much in tune with that of Stoker's dark and gothic LondonEastern Europe The protagonist Dr Jane Langford is very believable both in regards to her being at the center of the story and as a real person who reflects overthinks and has relatable reactions I really like how she is being properly portrayed throughout the story and how well developed her character is Obviously the primary focus is to give merit to a myth few if any would wish were true and thus a sinister foreboding is eased in adding horror to the suspense Cawdron offers a new take and twists it into something both disturbingly realistic and eerily gothic while drawing on interesting parts of the original novel I also love how the original novel gets to be an actual part of this story as well It wasn't at all what I expected of a novella and yet the story felt just as solid as had it been an actual novel As the writing is perfectly flawless and the story brilliantly imagined I would very much like And I'll definitely recommend it anyone especially if you've read Bram Stoker's Dracula but even if you haven't

    This wild reimagining of Dracula is so gripping you will read it in minutes I was kept on my toes guessing where the twists would take me until the very end and I can't say much without giving it away but you will be happy to have spent a dollar on a fine story rather than 14 of a coffeefree copy provided for my honest opinion I just happened to luck out and fall in love with it

  6. Anne G Totcky Anne G Totcky says:

    Fast PacedVAMPIRE was fast paced and thrilling The suspense built up from very subtle to in your face obvious I would recommend this to anyone interested in vampires It's a different take on vampires A good read

  7. Don Oberg-Hauser Don Oberg-Hauser says:

    This is an eerie story of possession and vampires I'm not sure I liked the ending but it was a uniue way to take care of the story line I could anticipate some of the plot but that didn't take away from the enjoyment of the story If anything it made it terrifying somewhat like those horror stories where the person is going to check out the dark basement alone and you know it's not going to end well

  8. Toofan Toofan says:

    A very well written and well edited capturing short story The ending was predictable but nevertheless enjoyable

  9. Norma Norma says:

    A reworking of the Dracula story? Set in modern time? And in a novella? The old vampire story is so iconic that I was unable to imagine how this could be worked So much so that when I was offered a copy of Vampire in return for an honest review I emailed the author to reiterate that my review would be a totally honest one even if I hated itI should have saved myself all the angst and trusted in the very talented imagination of MrCawdron to make this something special He writes with such a seemingly easy style bringing characters into full reality without heavy handed description not interrupting the flow of the story starting in the ordinary and seamlessly spiralling into the weird Although a short this story had the impact of a full length novel Perhaps the final pages were predicable but this only made the story that tad excitingAlthough this is a stand alone I understand that there is a possibility of further books in this new series to follow if this one proves popular So please everyone buy this book You won't regret it and I just know that I'll be there at the front of the ueue to read the next one

  10. Colby Colby says:

    This was a neat little twist on the traditional vampire story and thank goodness nothing was sparkling Cawdron as always puts his own uniue spin on something and makes it better What if vampires are real but we've gotten so blinded by the mythos that we can't see what's right in front of us This story was done in the style of Bram Stoker full of suspense and riddled with the unknown I recommend it to any horror or sci fi fans out there along with everything else the guy writes which is all gold and I sincerely hope there are many seuels in the works I love the way this one went and I'd love to read much of this story
