Homeless and with nowhere to turn, Rebecca De Rosa finds a family of lost souls just like her—the vampires of Orlando. Reborn, she revels in her new lifestyle of ‘no rules’. Love whoever you want. Seek whatever high you wish. Live forever young. Every night’s an adventure—hunting down tourists, challenging local police, screaming to the world vampires really do exist! It’s Neverland and every dream Rebecca has comes true.
Until the first murder.
Someone else lurks in the shadows. Goths are found beheaded, with wooden stakes pounded into their chests. The hunters have become the hunted. As the bodies pile up, Rebecca and the Family are forced to ask who can you trust when the only person who believes you’re an actual vampire is a vampire killer?
Rebecca, a run away, has been alone and wondering, feeling completely unwanted until Renfield. He takes her to a group of kids just like her. Well, they not JUST like her. The family that has taken her in is not you typical family, unless your family consist of a blood drinking, wild bunch of goth vampires with no rules. Rebecca is surprised when she is introduced to everyone for the first time and does quite know if she should believe what she’s seeing, are these just out of control Goths or real vampires? When her new family begins showing up murdered, the hunt turns on them and they become the hunted. Some one is stalking and killing them. Is it an outsider or someone you think you may be able to trust?
At The End Of Church Street is definitely not for the faint of heart. A true horror book with many plot twist, edge of your seat, great dark humor. It took a bit for me to get used to the authors writing style but enjoyed the back and forth between the characters. He did a fantastic job with details of the characters and making you visualize all that is going on. A very good read especially since this is not your typical vampire read. A recommend from me, four stars!
