Herald Thompson is in New York City on a special assignment for Sillian Industries. He is brought there to study the existence of vampires. He assumes he will prove they do not exist and there is some difficulty in getting him to believe that they do exist. He and many new colleagues will be studying them for the next year. Over the course of the next year, Herald will have to rethink everything he has believed to be true.
This is a second book in the larger Redgold series. The initial book, Demon Vampire, is quite involved and lengthy. It is important to read that book before reading this one. This story is interesting and very well written. It goes through some of the history of the the vampires and the blood work showing how and why they are different and live a longer existence. There is also two off shoots, if you will, to the story, in which I assume will be further pursued in later books. One involves a young woman who is not a vampire at the time of the story, and the other is with Herald himself. I will be very anxious to see where the story goes from here. Since this is a novella, the story moved faster and pulled me in from the beginning. Herald is a very likable character. Even though he is a bit shy and a loner, he is definitely a male when it comes to one of the subjects in the study. Eada catches his eye from the start and he has difficulty relaxing around her. All in all an excellent read and I highly recommend it. If you read Demon Vampire, you definitely want to read this one.
I was provided a copy from the author for reading and reviewing purposes. I was not required to write a positive review. I was not compensated in anyway except for receiving the book to review.
I give Special Science Report 1192, 5 out of 5 stars
