Fear the Light Who murdered Dracula by William Massa Book review



Blurb
Many had tried to kill the Count over the centuries. All had failed. Until now...
Eight vampires gather at their maker's castle to solve the mystery of who killed Dracula. But as the sun rises outside the chateau, a voice cries out and another vampire is slain. Trapped inside their master's lair, the sun burning bright outside, Dracula's children realize that they have met their match - a formidable killer who plans on picking them off one by one! As the daylight reigns and their numbers dwindle, a dark suspicion grows - could the killer be hiding in plain sight?


This is a brilliant take on a Dracula novel, I have read so many Dracula and vampire books especially recently which I love; but they have become a bit samely. NOT WITH this one it has a completely unique edge to it.

Its fast paced and well written and I devoured this book in one complete sitting as I couldn't put it down. If you loved and read Agatha Christie's - And then there were none/Ten little Indians then you will love this novel but add the vampires; its just genius.
William Massa's experience and huge success in writing screen plays now extends to his first novel and wow you are right there in the middle of the action, you can almost feel the heat....I said almost... ;-)

You cant get a better plot than bringing a group of people/vampires to a mansion to let that murderer play their evil games. I love that William has crafted the brilliant legendary Dracula without actually having Dracula as the main character; not many authors could make that work, let alone work well.
William has created some believable, vivid characters that you will either love, hate or feel sorry for. Vincent the main character is my favorite and you are right there at his side as you are swept along with the Vampiric horror and gore we all love; with a dash of mystery and who done it!

I would have loved it to have been longer as I was enjoying it so much. It would make a fantastic film with its brilliant ending that I wasn't expecting; so I really hope to read more about Vincent in maybe a book 2...and 3...fingers crossed...as the Vampiric Poirot.
This well constructed book with its exciting twists and turns is perfect for both horror and murder/mystery fans, plus those wanting something different to the normal vamp genre.
