Enter, Night by Michael Rowe
Enter, Night

Bracken, January 1, 2013

This was, hands down, the best book I read in 2012. Enter, Night is not a book about self-loathing, weepy, romantic, hero vampires. It’s about regular people facing down a force of evil that treats them as cattle and converts. I don't read widely in the vampire sub-genre because of the conventions established by Anne Rice, Stephanie Meyer, and their imitators. This book, however, helped restore my confidence that a vampire novel can be a character-driven tale about relatable people facing adversity caused by something terrible and beyond their understanding or control. The vampires in the book are monstrous and scary, mainly because their appearance is rare, they are unrepentantly violent, and the focus of our sympathies are for their victims, not them. Be warned, however, this is not an action-packed Hollywood style romp. This book is a slow-burn, creepy, atmospheric horror novel.
