Before there was Nick Knight there was Garreth Mikaelian! Before there was Forever NightÂ® there was BloodWalk! Garreth Mikaelian, a dedicated police officer, runs into more than he counted on when he investigates a very peculiar murder. This leads him to Lane Barber-Young, beautiful, hypnotic, and a vampire. Now Garreth is a vampire also, but the books on the legends and lore of vampirism don't seem to help. How can he keep his job, his friends, and his humanity while battling another vampire in his new life? How will he keep from being the hunted while hunting Lane Barber?

From the standpoint of a vampire fan, I really enjoyed the portrayal of Garth and his struggles with his changed existance. In fact, I think Killough does the best job with that transformation I've ever read this side of Anne Rice. However, Garth is a much more admirable character than Rice's vampires, as human as he is superhuman.
Overall, finding a good vampire novel can be tricky, but Killough's book is so good I've read it a dozen times. And that says something, since the majority of vampire novels I buy I can't even finish because the writing style or characterization or plotting drives me nuts. But this book worked right down to the ground.
Do yourself a favor and buy it.
Instead of dying, he awakens in the morgue. Garreth desperately needs blood, but emotionally needs to cling to his humanity. As such, he sips on rat blood. However, Garreth also realizes that he cannot stay on the force. However, he decides to avenge his loss of humanity by bringing down Lane or die in the attempt.
BLOODWALK is the compilation of two wonderful novels from the eighties (BLOOD HUNT and BLOODLINKS) into one great book. The police procedural segments of the tale are well written and the supernatural elements seem so real. The secondary characters add depth and constantly move the enthralling novel forward. However, it remains Garreth's internal struggle between entrance into one world while keeping a foot in the other that turns Lee Killough's vampiric story into a great book that will please the fans of vampire and police procedural novels
