Fascinating, Delicious, and Dark
Author Rhani D’Chae provides a detailed life journey of a vampire’s point of view in his feeding desires with beautiful men. The story takes place when HIV/AIDS is on the rise, suggesting that vampires would suffer from this blood disease horrifically. The writing is succinct and vivid as the author quickly paints the character in the bar and his observations.
Vampire stories often contain violence, death, and ghastly, grim atmosphere, but this one was matter of fact without the blood. This mature vampire is very matter of fact on his needs. He also is clear in what he gives for what he gets. If it were simply a conversation in a bar between men, it would seem most mature and forthcoming.
Author D’Chae is totally adept at precision wording. Early on this section painted a perfect picture of the situation.
I remember my last…friend. I do not refer to him as a lover, for can one truly love what is, in essence, a tv dinner? I think not, although I am sure that someone will eventually prove me to be wrong. At any rate, we had many glorious evenings together, until the night when I awoke and found that my lovely friend had lost all track of time and was otherwise occupied. So sad that it had to end, but I could not continue with him, knowing that he had been seeing another without informing me of his actions.
Rhani D’Chae is a gifted author. The reader gains immediate empathy with the character. I found myself listening to his perspective and wishing I could offer a solution. You’ll need to read it all to the end to see how he solves his problem. Easily recommended for those who enjoy a thoughtful perspective straight from the mouth of a vampire.
