VAMPIRE RISING RELEASE DAY REVIEW!!
HELLO FRIENDS, I HAVE BEEN WAITING TO BRING YOU MY REVIEW OF THIS ONE! I LOVE LARRY BENJAMIN'S WRITING, THIS BOOK INCLUDED! BELOW IS MY REVIEW AND LINKS FOR VAMPIRE RISING, SO LET'S GET STARTED:
I LOVE THIS QUOTE FOR THIS BOOK! HERE IS MY REVIEW:
Vampire Rising by: Larry Benjamin
reviewed by: Becky
To be a Vampire is to know your pale skin and red lips offend others.'
It's the mid twenty-first century. Anti-Semitism, racism, sexism and homophobia have been consigned to the dustbin of history. The world is run by "the state," and Christian zealots, whose chief governing tools are fear and oppression. It's a wonderful time to be alive - unless you're a Vampire. Vampires are despised, and feared, and subjected to discrimination and unspeakable violence.
Considered undead, unholy, without basic human rights, Gatsby Calloway lives on the fringes of society, avoiding humanity. Until he meets Barnabas, a young encaustic painter. When Barnabas is mortally wounded during an anti-Vampire attack, Gatsby must forget everything he has known, and learn to trust.
I was thrilled when I found out Larry Benjamin was releasing a Vampire book, and leave it to Larry to give us a totally new, amazing take on this common theme. Larry doesn't just tell a story, he paints a world and crafts the people in it, and this is the mark of a great author!
This is a short story so I won't say much for fear of giving away spoilers, but I will say that I love both Gatsby and Barnabas, and you will find yourself rooting for them like I did!
Gatsby is looked down upon as a Vampire, and he lives accordingly, pretty much removed from everything and everyone, then he meets Barnabas.
Larry gives a fresh take to the Vampire theme, and this book is well written and captivating! You really don't want to miss it, if you love Vampires, you will want to read this perspective on them!
I can't wait for the next in the series of shorts, and I also can't wait for you guys to read this one! Thanks Larry, for your gripping take on the world of Vampires!
