Mpressed by this excerptThe mechanics of the writing are poor The story is written in the present tense which made it a chore to read I ve only read one novel The House of Sand and Fog by Andre Dubus that used the present tense well but in all the others including this one I ound it awkward and distracting The story is also written in the Forensic Nursing first person and I and my are grossly overused a common pitfallor beginning writersThe dialogue is a particular weak point The author very rarely uses said or in this case say as a dialogue tag Instead we get comment confirm add purr direct observe etc and also non dialogue tags misused as tags such as smile snigger and clears his throat Avoiding said is another beginner mistake and a major pet peeve of mine The dialogue also oftens sound stiff and Devil Takes His Innocent The Fall of the Four Horsemen forced and as you know Bob statements crop uprom time to timeFinally the story is without context or setting All we are told is that it s a hotel it s in Alaska and it s shaped like a T The hotel room in the opening scene is barely described at all The overall lack of description makes it impossible or me to connect with the world in the story The world doesn t seem concrete or realBeyond the simple mechanics listed above other things bothered me as wellFor instance some Huh moments occurred A murder victim with a dent in his head and no other obvious injuries loses half his body s blood volume How does that happen without any open wound It s supposedly dark twenty hours a day at the time of the story but that means there s about the same amount of daylight in the summer months so this really isn t the best place to have resort or vampires At one point Dria the narrator has to lean in close to determine that someone is human even though his blood is saturating the room and another time she can tell Dr No James Bond 007 role playing game 35006 from manyeet away that a non bleeding person standing in a group of vampires is human by her scentDria also comes across as shallow and unlikeable to me For instance she tapes her visitors in their bedrooms without their knowledge to indulge her voyuerism Yuck I also think my dislike Pour protger Chloe - Cohabitation force (Black Rose) for her has to do with the overall tone of the writing which is inconsistent Sometimes it s light hearted wise cracking then it s erotic then it s I think the story would be vastly improved if the writing wasocusedIn summary I made it to the end of the excerpt but I was glad when I got to the last word I can t recommend this to anyone The concept or the story might be interesting but the execution is uite poor.
