Blood Grove tries to combine somewhat of a narrative fiction look at the 70’s and vampires. All it turns into is a giant escapade of sex, unoriginal ideas, and the tarnishing of a genre. While that seems harsh, the book had poorly crafted supporting characters, an unoriginal idea, and a plot that moved at a snails pace.
Of course while I am trashing the book, I feel obligated to point out I did enjoy the character Barron Zginski. I found him unoriginal yet interesting, and if the entire book had been in his point of view I may have been able to look past the poorly constructed plot and unoriginal ideas. But alas it was not.
All in all this was a terrible book that I hope you never have the misfortune to read.
