THE DEAD AT HEART By Susanne Leist, A Book Review by Pat Garcia

October 2, 2020

If you like stories about vampires that are not grizzly and filled only with blood, then you want to read The Dead At Heart.  This story will catch you up from page one and win your heart. In the end, I saw it not as a story about vampires but an excellent story about love and trust.

With the first page, I was engaged, even though Shana, the main character, kept confusing me with her intent with William. William was not much help with his secrets and keeping things away from her.

I met archangels on the side of the vampires and werewolves, who were not favorable to the vampires at all.

In my opinion, there was one main story and two sub-plots running in the book, the main story being Shana wanting to find love and someone who would accept her as she was.

Then there is William’s story and his shadiness.

Finally, there is the story of the sister and brother, Samantha and Jonathan, who acted on their own cognition and did something that could have earned them a death sentence.

All in all, these three plots are so well intertwined together that it kept me turning the pages, and I was rewarded with a satisfying ending that thrilled me. What I also like was the time sequence. The time was recorded at the beginning of each chapter when there was a shift in place or day.

It was an excellent read.

Shalom aleichem,
