An excellent vampire novel with depth
von S. Fischer am 24.05.2010

When Shori wakes up, she is severaly injured, burnt all over, and can't remember anything about herself or her past. There are burnt-down buildings and traces of dead people nearby, so someone must have tried to kill her, too. But why? Her instincts help her survive on raw meat... When Shori wakes up, she is severaly injured, burnt all over, and can't remember anything about herself or her past. There are burnt-down buildings and traces of dead people nearby, so someone must have tried to kill her, too. But why? Her instincts help her survive on raw meat and later blood while her body heals abnormally fast. In time, she finds refuge with a young man from whom she gets blood - and sex. It becomes clear that the more they are together, the more mental control she has over him. As the two are trying to find out what happened to her, they meet others of her kind: She's a member of a race of vampire-like creatures who live in symbiosis with nomal human beings. But while they normally can't stand the sun and are basically catatonic during the day, her family used genetic experiments and managed to create her: She can be active during the day, gets burned but not killed by the sun, and heals even faster than others of her kind. But it can't be an accident that her whole family was killed and that the people she found later are under attack as soon as she is with them. Some people obviously consider her an abomination to be eradicated. But are they humans or her own kind? This is an intelligent and unusual vampire novel that deals with topics like racism, family, different cultures, and symbiosis. A truly original culture of vampires and their human symbionts has been created. I enjoyed the book a lot and would have loved to read more in this world, but unfortunately the auhor passed away shortly after writing this novel, so no hope there. It's not a romance novel and some people may have a problem with the fact that Shori (over 50 years old but by vampire standards a child - and she looks like one) is intimate with and attracted to both men and women. If you don't see this as a problem, I would highly recommend this book. I found it truly fascinating and something to think about.
