Blood, Souls and Sacrifice

Blood Souls and Sacrifice

by Donald V. Parker III

Review by Isabella Steel Five Stars

Donald Parker takes a classic and reboots into a new spin. Adding new characters to the tale. Parker has

a melody to his writing that is pleasant and along with the action keeps you reading. Debra and Richard are like Hansel and Gretel, of vampire slayers taking out toothy fiends instead of witches. The book has excellent dialogue. Until the dragons show up it has a vibe similar to the original Buffy and the Vampire Slayer vibe.

Character descriptions are almost happy.

“one old nun with a tiny, round nose, beautiful brown eyes, and wrinkly dimples…”

The dichotomy of Werewolves and Vampires has almost a comedic tone while keeping the action coming as he builds the fundamental conflict. Parker fills in the characters’ backstory without a long exposition. Bringing dragons into the mix is just brilliant.

Five Stars.
