Amber Fang: Betrayal – Book Review

 

Ethical vampire Amber Fang is on the hunt for her mother, for answers about her identity, and for a murderer to have for dinner. Everybody seems to have plans for her, and most of them she’d very much like to avoid.

Amber Fang: Betrayal continues the theme of searching for family from Amber Fang: The Hunted and starts calculating the price of finding them. Amber Fang herself is reduced to a wise-cracking kicking machine, flamboyantly unreliable and a danger to everyone around her. She is single-minded in pursuit, like a terrier dragging its leash, and incapable of caring that somebody chases her into traffic until long after they’ve been squished by a bus. Even then, I’m beginning to worry that she doesn’t care as much as she claims to.

Sirens – Book Review

 

There are only really three things that I know for sure after having read this book:

  1. I will probably think twice before I ever volunteer to visit Manchester.
  2. I will never understand why some people would choose to take drugs
  3. I should think twice before opting to take such a gruesome crime novel with me whilst I’m on holiday
