Demise of the Vampire Queen Reviews
This is the third and final novella in the Vampire Queen trilogy. What can I say? The series just took a nosedive. Try as I might, I simply could not get into this book. It read more textbook-like than a fictional story. I like fiction.The story is back to contradicting itself. We are now returning to Venice to face the Queen back in the 1300’s? Yet in the sequel, she had just begun to rule there? We have the background and backstory of the Queen being told yet again – which is fine, until it changes. Her history is different in this book than the others. Was I misinterpreting the story? Did I miss something? This contradicting business is the real Demise of the Vampire Queen.The author did raise and answer an interesting question: What happens if you drain a vampire of its blood? In most mythologies, if you drain a human of his/her blood, the human dies and there’s an opportunity to turn the human into a vampire. But, a vampire?If I had advice to give the author, it would be twofold: One, revise, revise, and then revise again. Read your own story and see if it makes sense to you. Ask a couple of others to read and help you revise. Then, enlist editors. Everyone, even the greats, needs their books to be revised and edited extensively. When you think you are done, you probably have another round of polishing to do.Two, show, don’t tell. I do not want to know little Johnny is a generous boy. Show me a situation where little Johnny is giving away his last piece of candy.The author brings forth great ideas. There are a lot of mythologies out there. This one is asking questions and exploring uncharted territories. The story has some good elements. Perhaps, in the next edition, it will be ready to be read.For more reviews such as this one, please visit: http://ravenreviewer.tumblr.com
I received this book from the author to write an honest review. I decided to review this as a trilogy instead of individually, so this is my take on all 3 books.First let me say that I enjoyed the story line. It was fun to follow, and the characters were easy enough to keep straight (some books’ characters so closely resemble the others that they do not seem individual).As for the writing itself, in my opinion the first book, The Vampire Queen, seemed almost to be written as a teenager might write. It seemed very stilted, and there was no flow. The second book, The Vampire Chronicles, was much better, but still did not read as well as I would have liked. The third, Demise of the Vampire Queen, definitely showed maturity of the author. In reading these, I could see how much she grew just in these three books. Book one seemed to be like the bare branches of a tree in the winter, but by the third book, I could see the leaves coming out as the tree was beginning to come alive.I was left with some unanswered questions by the time I was done. I don’t feel the story created enough strife and grief to the people to leave them wishing the demise of this queen. I would have liked to see her portrayed as a much more evil, self-serving wench. However it was decent enough.I would read more of this writer as she continues to grow and mature in her mission as an author.
There was just something about this one that just wasn't for me. It's still well written but maybe it's because they felt like completely different characters to me right off the bat. Okay, that's not exactly a negative because we are dealing with vampires over a long span of time of course they are to change. But for me I couldn't get into it and I think that is the reason why. If you read the first two I still recommend you read it and make your own decision on it.
To wrap up just how and what I felt about these three books I read to give an honest review, they were quite enjoyable, particular this, the third in the series.
