Lost Souls – Novel

Just completely finished this novel and making notes on it now. Another of the Vampire novels for my Uni course.

I thought I’d hate it, I mean .. From reading the prologue my initial thoughts were “Ugh, great.” However, when I started reading it I could barely put it down! Now, I’m not gunna’ overly praise this as I didn’t enjoy it THAT much – It was a very easy read and in all honesty I liked a fair few of the characters, well, maybe one or two.

Zillah was one of my favourites, just from the description of him, I think I fell in love!

Most of the content within the novel though is erm, how can I put it … Let’s say transgressive and explicit? There is a whole lot of same-sex sexual encounters and a fair amount of incestuous happenings going on; So yeah, I can’t say I enjoyed those aspects of it too much.

As I stated though, it’s an easy read and it does grip you, well, it gripped me anyway. I guess you shouldn’t judge a book by it’s cover .. Literally.

I guess you come to “accept” the content more-so when you do some background reading on the author, or get told a little about the author – As me and Aimee found out .. He .. She … They are a transgender – So my guess is that this novel (when he was a woman) was him exploring some of his fantasies (Maybe not being a Vampire, but gay sexual fantasies) and putting it into words … I don’t know!

I am going to say give it a read yourself because, well, it’s a fun read – There’s a fair bit of action going on and I wasn’t bored at all once. So yeah, why not give it a read.
