{January 5, 2012}   {Review} Theater of Vampires by Guido Henkel (Jason Dark-Ghost Hunter #2)

From Goodreads: When stage magic isn’t what it seems, Jason Dark turns to an old friend for help. Explore the shadows of the Victorian Theater with London’s most famous Geisterj as he confronts vampire horrors beyond anything yet confronted. Theater of Vampires is a gothic story of betrayal, discovery, and horror in the tradition of the Grand Guignol. The only admission price needed is your courage.

This is the second volume in a series of gothic horror adventures where Jason Dark, a fearless and resourceful ghost hunter, sets out to solve a supernatural mysteries.


Henkel has written yet another interesting novella involving Jason Dark, ghost hunter, though his profession isn’t only ghosts.  His first battle, in Demon’s Night, dealt with demons, and now this book deals with vampires.  Of course, I found this novella very interesting, especially as these vampires are hiding in plain sight, performing at a theater; and their performance is not for the squeamish. 

Henkel does a superb job tying all loose ends together in this novella while bringing both Jason Dark and Siu Lin back in this enticing story where not everyone is what they seem. I really enjoy that these novellas seem to be stand-alone texts and can be read out of order.  Since the texts don’t necessarily tie in with one another, it does give the reader some say over what they want to read.  However, both this novella and Demon’s Night are superbly written and I suggest reading them both, in order; I am excited to read the next installment and see what new gothic horror Henkel comes up with! Four stars.

 I received a copy of this novella from the author in exchange for an honest review.
