To Touch The Sun by Laura Enright
Lorry's rating: 4 of 5 stars
A gripping tale that steps away from the romanticism of being a vampire, and makes you think twice about what it is to have an immortal existence thrust upon you, whether you like it not. In a refreshing new approach to the vampire genre we meet three vampires, all turned during the bloody battles of the World War, and how for each of them, having followed a different path, are suddenly thrown back together again. The mercenary who’s made a profit, the adaptable who’s made a life and the lost and lonely who just wants the nightmare to end. Brought together by one woman, whose lifetime of research may have discovered a formula to that could change or, ultimately, end their existence.
Beautifully written, although with a tendency to indulge in back story from time to time. This is definitely a novel for those who’ve had enough of the sparkly vampire variety.
