Book Read in 2017 Vampire Plagues: London by Sebastian Rook. I know it's only the beginning of the series, but considering it's called vampire plagues I was expecting there to be more vampires and more problems than what was really there. I liked the concept of vampires in this book, and the fact that they were actually the bad guys, but aside from that I just feel kind of meh about the whole this. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't amazing either. Unfortunately, I have so many other books I want to read, and this just didn't blow me away This was alright.

I may be 24 years old, but I’m not ashamed to admit that I LOVE children books. There are three books in the Vampire Plagues series, the first being London, 1850, about twelve-year-old Jack Harkett, a street urchin living on the London docks. Seriously, if you look at my bookshelf you’ll find some super naughty adult vampire books and right next to them are the Spiderwick Chronicles (including the field guide… I’m a dork). When a merchant ship sails into port one evening, he sees it as a chance to get some food and money.

This was for a child in my class.

The book is part of a trilogy that is very interesting in chronicling the spread of vampires, and how they evolved from the Yucatan to England. I would recommend reading the series, and do not want to give the plot away.

Vampire Plagues: London by Sebastian Rook

This is the first book in a trilogy for young adults. In this book, Ben is with his father on an expedition to Mexico. They stumble across a cave full of vampire bats and that does not end well for Ben's father. Ben escapes back to his home in London but the vampire problem follows him there. Can Ben, his sister Emily and their new friend Jack win against a paranormal enemy? This book has lots of action to keep middle school and high school readers engaged. I borrowed this book from the public library.

I can't speak highly enough of this book. This is not your average young adult novel. Fact and fiction are woven so intricately, it's difficult to believe the author wasn't actually on the scene of a vampire plague in 1850. It's rare to find a period piece done so right. The characters' speech and mannerisms really transport you to another time. The writing is just superb. The book has a solid, exciting plot with colorful characterization. Though outwardly it looks like a children's book (large book size and large font), the writing style and pacing are very mature. I'm in my 30s and found this to be one of the best works of vampire fiction I have ever come across.

12 year old Jack Harkett was looking to pick pockets on the night he witnessed a large ship pulling into the docks of 1850s era London. To his surprise, only one passenger, a tall, dark, gentlemen disembarked the vessel and disappeared into the night. Just as Jack prepared to board the ship in order to explore, a boy about his age who was visibly starved, tired, and rich based on the clothes (now tattered) he wore, stumbled off the boat. Jack befriends Ben (said boy) and listens his tale of the horrors that happened on his expedition to Mexico, the key part being that a Mayan vampire god (Camazotz) boarded the ship home is now on the loose in London with a swarm of bats/vamps to do his bidding. Jack, Ben, and Ben's sister Emily must work together to stop Camazotz from turning all of London into his meals, or worse, his vampiric minions.

While clearly geared for the younger set of readers, I still found this novel to be very entertaining. The writing style is not by any means complex, but it isn't annoyingly simple and fluffy either. A good stock of vocabulary is used, and some of the dark moments were so chilling that I myself got a slight case of the goose bumps (and I am not easily scared). The characters are exceptionally round for a young novel.

The vampire mythology deviates from the norm, you wont find any stakes, garlic, or holy water in this novel. Also gone is the sensual/sexual aspect that most vampire works tend to contain, making this book not only more tangible for the younger crowd, but it is also a breath of fresh air. Adults, however, have no fear, this book still proves to be a good, page turning read (it is not so fluffy as one would think...it is about vampires after all!) Adults will take interest on a new spin of the classic vampire tales and as I stated before, the dark parts are certainly satisfying.

If you love vampires, love horrors, or just love to read, this book is definitely worth a look, it wont disappoint.

I saw this book in a used book store (sorry, Amazon) and since the setting was Victorian London (my favorite) I decided to get it. I must say upfront I am not a reader of horror stories, including vampire books. The books about vampires I've read you could count on one hand. ("Dracula" by Bram Stoker will always be my favorite, I'm sure.) However, having said all that I have to say this series is just wonderful. As another reviewer said, this first book is the best in the series. (I thought the last book was the weakest, probably because Camazotz took so long to show up. The grand finale made up for the rest of the book though!) I loved reading about Mayan mythology and the description of the expedition Ben went on with his father was great. I also very much enjoyed Jack's descriptions of life on the docks. The characterization of the 3 friends is wonderful too--you like them and want them to prevail. It really is quite well written. A very enjoyable series. I'd have to agree with another reviewer that this is for ages 10 and up. Adults will enjoy this as much as kids. If you enjoy vampire stories you must read this series.
