Refreshingly Unique. A little bit horror, a little bit crime, and a whole lot of mystery is happening in this vampire-themed story set in the small town of Deadhart Alaska. Barbara Atkins, a vampyr expert is called in to evaluate the unfortunate demise of a youngster. Tensions run high between the angry townsfolk and the resentful inhabitants that reside in a protected vampyr colony nearby. Barbara’s job is to determine the exact cause of death and whether or not to permit an authorized cull to remove any further threat to human life. Finding the true culprit, human or Vampr, is imperative. Her ultimate decision could place a whole community in imminent danger. It can be hard to know which of the local hunters have colder blood . . . some are just looking for sustenance, some for trophies, and some are out for revenge.
I’d like to thank NetGalley for an advanced copy of The Gathering for my unbiased evaluation. 4 stars
