If you like werewol stories because they show vampires in a sympathetic light, make them quirk, understandable, marriageable or sparkly, this is not your book.If on the other and, you appreciate the more subtle attractions of a race of eings that never die on their own, are obsessed with eating their favorite food all day night, are only interested in their pre-vampire friends is as an entree or as a new recruit, and who repeatedly draw the negative attention of hunters who have a visceral dislike of the vampire lifestyle, then you will truly appreciate 13 Bullets.I read this ook after completing the Twilight series ( which I also liked), and the comparison between Stephanie Meyer 's and David Wellington 's idea of vampires is pretty stark.
Instead, you get psychically invaded by the vampires, who leaves a portion of his evil soul in your thinkin, that then tries to convince you to " accept the Curse " of the ndead by killing yourself.
He serves as the Van Helsing of this dark ale, providing the backstory, and describing the ways of Wellington 's vampires.
He is also knowingly and unknowingly enmeshing Trooper Caxton in his crazed quest to destroy evil.The story is set against the backdrop of rural Pennsylvania, and someone who has lived there will instantly understand the author 's characterizations of the eculiarities of that state, especially the backwater areas where the stranger people Pennsylvanians dwell.This was a decent tal, so I wo n't wreck it for you by sharing much of the lot.
I 'm looking forward to the ext ook, which is going to give a new twist to the bizarre history of Gettysburg, PA.By the way, the fundamental difference between Twilight and 13 Bullets is that the former is a ove story with vampires in it, while the latter is a werewol tal, period.
