Vampires are traditionally cold blooded remorseless predators. Unfortunately, the recent success of the Twilight series of books, films and endless imitations have turned them into pasty faced sullen teenagers with commitment complexes and about as much horror as a slice of cheese. Thank goodness for "His Blood" by Christine Morgan. The main theme of the novel is that humanity has been sold a lie about vampires' ancestry and is blissfully unaware (or willful ignorance) that the central pillar of our belief system is just that, a belief. The reality is far more disturbing than anyone can imagine. Around this central conceit, Morgan expertly weaves a tale of a millennia old vampire searching for the blood that will resurrect the original progenitor of the species and return the world to a dark age. I really liked this novel. Morgan adds a fresh and interesting perspective about the vampires lineage and some of the more traditional trappings of the genre such as their fear of silver and crosses. It also has some really good ideas about certain aspects of religious doctrine such as resurrection and The Immaculate Conception alongside the clash between science and faith. More to the point it is a raw, intense and satisfyingly bloody and downbeat slice of horror. Great stuff!
I'm not a huge fan of vampire novels, considering many of the tropes have been done and over done. But Christine Morgan takes the typical vampire myth and turns it on its ear. She seamlessly weaves vampire legend into Christianity creating one of the best takes on the beasts I've read in a long while. The action is fast paced and engaging, the characters endearing, and the story is a raging page turner. This is a horror novel I will be recommending to many of my friends. Looking forward to reading more of her works!
