I'm a tried and true Anne Rice fan to the point of collecting first edition hardcovers. As a gay man I love the pansexuality of her characters in both the Witch series and Vampire Chronicles. I find it sometimes frusterating that the homo-eroticism in her books never goes beyond into the physical sexual arena. In this novel, great characters are fleshed out and the full on sex and eroticism is very much evident. The vampires are true vampires without the 'love them anyway' of Rice's Vampires. The descriptivenes is satisfying and clearly the work of a mature storyteller. The story line is quite interesting and compelling as well. Hopefully there will be more books to follow this mother and son vampires through more battles in the near future. Anne Rice this isn't but if you want sex and vampires, this is your book.

I wouldn't recommend it unfortunately, I view this book as a plain killing Vampire story not Erotic. And I would not buy another of this type. I love to read about Vampires I read romances or erotic, but this was the worst of any type I've read.

I liked the book, and couldn't help but give it a 5. But when it comes to vampire stories, I'm fairly easy to please. Films, books, comics, stories . . . I find them all thrilling and exciting. That despite my intense disgust for other forms of bloody movies and books. So, please take this review with a grain (or pound) of salt. <grin>
Jack is the "hero" of the story, a vampire living in New York who must do his evil deed every couple of days. As other commentators have stated, he has little if any problem with his continuous killing, as a decent vampire should. His prey tend to be strong, young, gay men who are immediately attracted to this mysterious, strong, blonde, blue-eyed Adonis. Often the death scenes (of which there are many) become an erotic journey whereby Jack is fulfilled in two respects before his prey often happily sink into oblivion. So if you're looking for a gay erotic horror story, this might be right for you.
I will be honest and say that I was actually a little unsure of any real plot when I finished the book. Yes, it does lay the groundwork for a sequel, but of what? We got a brief glimpse into the life and past of Jack, which was interesting for the most part. But I saw little leading up to the end and the potential transfer of center stage to another "hero" in a sequel. It would have been much better if there were stronger ties between Jack and the few remaining characters alive at the end of the book.
A wild read, which I enjoyed immensely. To everyone else - take your chances!

This is one vampire who really doesn't care about any of his victims. And there are plenty of them, over and over again someone is introduced, killed and forgotten. The main character, Jack, seems like he doesn't really care about anything but himself. The ending is like a relief just to know he's supposedly gone. I wouldn't recommend it unfortunately.

This has got to be the single worst book in the vampire genre that I have ever read.
First of all, the Author is verbose. His clinical descriptions of Jack's "seduction" and killing of his victims slows the pace of the book to a crawl. He is extremely repetitive, I felt like I was reading the same page at several different points in the book. Also, Lord focuses not on the seduction of the victims, but rather the killing of them, as if I were reading a catalog of a serial killer. The book is about as erotic as Jeffrey Dahmer's Rap Sheet.
The Character of Jack has got to be the most one-dimensional character that I have ever seen. He is also the first "progagonist" that I hoped would die a horrible death. At least Jack's mother, Noel, has some explanation and motivation behind her behavior. Jack, simply is a bloodsucking, remorseless, immoral vampire. There is absolutely no depth to his character at all.
One of the basic paradoxes of the vampire genre (when told from the point of view of the vampire) is that despite the fact that vampires are supposed to be soulless, they struggle with things like remorse, love, etc. Things that only a person with a soul would deal with. This book has none of that.
Instead, the book feels like it was written by a fundamentalist christian, dealing with his own internalized homophobia. It feels as though vampirism is used as a metaphor for homosexuality. As though neither of them are redeeming in any way.
My reccomendation? read "Desmond" instead. That is one of the best in the genre that I have read, standing near the quality of Anne Rice.

Loved the novel. A page turner indeed. What I loved most about it was the different way it dealt with vampires. Jack is not searching for a meaning to his existance or god, he's a vampire and all he does is for his survival. I'm looking forward to reading more by this author, David Thomas Lord.

This story was a little repetitive. I suppose a vampire doesn't have much to do except chow down on peoples' necks. Not too many different ways this process can be told? This book sure illustrated that! With each venture of Jacks need to feed on some poor boys neck, I felt I turned back a few pages and re-read the same blood sucking attack. I guess I was hoping for a romantic romp between the two magnificent creatures on the cover. I was fooled! The author seemed to repeat the scenes over and over and over again, with only name changes of his victims. Jack's evening ritual to ready himself for his exit into the night was even duplicated in each chapter. This book could have been shortened to one hundred pages and still told a complete story. Sorry Jean Luc, but your life as a vampire was putting me to rest without your teeth poking away at my neck! Another thing that irritated me like a loose eyelash stabbing away at my eyeball was the use of the author's terminology on body parts. It was as if he was trying to tell us he was at one time in the medical field. This drove me crazy! The ending was a little predictable too. The hints that have been planted throughout the entire book nearly gives the ending away. Perhaps this was the author's intention. The only reason I continued flipping the pages of this book was to verify my thoughts on the finale to be correct, along with wishful thinking this tale would improve. I was delighted to discover a little bit of a twist at the end, but yep, just as I thought. I hope the sequel to this book is un-like the first. I am not up to reading this same book twice. Good luck on your next journey Mr. Vampire.
