The Vampire by Sandrine Genier
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
While on vacation in New Orleans, Jason Sterling receives a job offer to be a personal assistant to L. L. Augere in Boston. While working for him, Jason notices strange occurrences and begins to worry about his life and the lives on those he loves.
Sandrine Genier’s The Vampire is a well-written book full of foreshadowing, symbolism, and mystery.
Jason is a worthy hero. Being Goth, he likes the freedom to be himself working for Augere, who does not mind how he dresses. I enjoyed his thought process and humor. He really thinks (and over thinks) things through. He interests in ghost, and paranormal investigation was unique. I also enjoyed his fascination with movies.
Augere is a captivating character. He has lived through so much. I love when he lets his dry humor out. He can be very amusing. He rightfully has some trust issues. He is a complex character that is intriguing.
The employees of the Genier law firm add a lot to the story. The concept of the family firm that has worked for the Augere’s for over one hundred years is clever.
I enjoyed the cultural and historical aspects of the story. The book takes place in numerous locations: New Orleans, Minnesota, Boston, Georgia, Italy, France, and Montreal. They are all so different and add variety to the novel.
Sandrine Genier does an amazing job with the plot and writing of The Vampire. It has been a long time since I picked up a book full of so much detail, foreshadowing, and symbolism. There is a lot going on in the story that makes you think. I will anxiously be awaiting the release of the next book to see where it takes us.
