    1. Read all my reviews on urlphantomhiveoklikes Originally, this was going to be a November blog tour, but in the end I was just asked to review it somewhere at the end of the month. Which in the end is a good thing, because I hate to write negative reviews during a blog tour. Focussing on many different arcs and characters, this apparently is the story of some Parisian vampires, and a man who holds a (reasonable) grudge against them. Unfortunately though, this isn't the story that is told in this [...]


    2. Combining an engaging portrayal of Europe and America in the 1920’s with an interesting twist on the social vampire trope, Kierkegaard produces a narrative full of ancient conspiracy and subtle threat without forgoing pace or immediacy.This book contains the first five episodes of Kierkegaard’s serial, The Vampires of Paris. When Johnny Durango, former Pinkerton detective, is released from prison after twenty years for killing the vampires who slew his family, he expects to spend his last fe [...]


    3. In the early 1920s, aging cowboy Johnny Durango walks out of Arizona’s Florence State Penitentiary, where he has been incarcerated for multiple homicides. As he tells pal Wyatt Earp, who picks him up in a new motorcar, he didn’t go crazy and kill all those circus folk—they were vampires. Now Johnny aims to travel to France where the vampires who killed his family were from—to finish the work he set out to do. At the same time, in Paris, two beautiful young women meet in a shop. Staring a [...]


    4. I read my first serial this year, and quickly found that they were perfect for those times when I had only a short break. They are similar to novellas, except you know that they will continue. There is no worry that there won’t be enough detail in the story or that you’ll be left wanting more, more and not getting it for ages. Serials tend to have all the detail and depth as a novel, but you get the story in snippets, little bits that are perfect for short reading spurts and don’t leave yo [...]


    5. Se si parla di vampiri, si sa, io leggo qualsiasi cosa.Ecco perchè sono stata attirata da questo titolo che purtroppo mi ha deluso.Mi ha deluso soprattutto perchè non è un romanzo completo, ma solo la prima parte. O almeno così pare, dato che ad un certo punto della storia (l'80% del kindle) c'è scritto che continua nella seconda parte, ma indovinate un po', la seconda parte non c'è. Al suo posto c'è invece un'anteprima di un altro libro dell'autore. Questa cosa mi ha leggermente seccato, [...]
