Read full description of the books Midnight Blue: Sonja Blue Collection:Outside of the fact that the vampire as hero has gotten WAY too overdone, my other complaint is that there just aren't enough female vampire heroines out there to balance the testosterone. It's almost sexist how female vamps get short shrift in popular literature. I mean come on, what's not to like about being forever young without the use of botox, never gaining weight, and being able to have as many lovers as one could ever want without getting a nasty STD or pregnant?
Hence, one of my favorite authors, Nancy Collins to the rescue.
Sonja Blue is trying to find the man who changed her from party-going "it" girl into a bloodsucking avenging angel who preys on other vampires--especially those who target humans as prey. However, that doesn't make her a nice lady. She's fanged and armed with a switchblade and she's not always the reasonable type.
I just love this novel because it's dark and brings back the horror of what vampirism really is. The paranormal vampire romance, in its zeal to make vampires alluring, has pretty much defanged these predators and in a lot of cases put them on a short leash. Sometimes, we need books like this to remind us what Stoker and leFanu were actually trying to tell us.
