Review:

Most vampire-themed novels these days tend to be cheesy and too light for the mythology involved, but I was pleasantly surprised to find that Slave to a Vampire was brutal and dark.  That is exactly how I like my vampire novels to be.

Katrina Kahler did an excellent job of researching the 1600s Caribbean culture that she chose as a setting for her trilogy, and I adored the historical fiction aspect of it all.  Her writing was vivid and detailed, but not overdone, and I found myself entangled within the theme early on in the novel.  I wanted to be a part of the action, and I felt as though I had travelled back in time.  Kahler knows how to mix history, romance, and suspense into one great collection, and I was pleasantly surprised to finally find a vampire collection that did the mythology justice.

Kahler is a brilliant author in the way that she knows how to create worlds that are entirely her own, but are grown from reality and our past.  She is able to warp history in a way that is believable, and that is a sign of a true author.  I highly recommend this collection to anyone looking for a gritty vampire story that doesn’t shy away from dark circumstances but involves some romance elements as well.  This collection is equal parts horror and romance, and it is all I could have ever asked for in a vampire-themed collection.
