Really, how many variations of the vampire theme can there possibly be? Surely, this genre is well-worn; what can possibly be done to rejuvenate it?
Welcome, “Jack Wendell’s Vampire Syndrome.” I promise, you have never read a vampire book like this one.
Somehow, Daven Anderson makes it all work. The story is metaphoric for sure, but man is this work compelling. There’s a good deal of tongue in cheek here but not once did I feel the author or his story pandered. This is a compelling work.
Jack Wendell is a character unique to modern fiction.
The conflicts inherent therein make for the best of fiction. This is one of my very favorite novels that I’ve read all year.
Kudos Mr. Anderson. A remarkable, fun work.
