Premature Book Review: The Nymphos of Rocky Flats

Mario Acevedo's vampire Felix Gomez is a veteran who was turned into a vampire in Baghdad. This is the first in a series of several books featuring Gomez with apparently more provocative titles than text.

Oh, there are nymphomaniacs in Rocky Flats, but this is hardly a dirty book. Rocky Flats is a Department of Energy facility where something odd is going on. An unexplained incident effected several women doing a pre-demolition survey of an old building. Whatever it was caused extreme sexual urges, but it appears to be at least in part supernatural. Felix Gomez, now a private detective, has been hired to investigate, and finds his unlife to be threatened.

The book is not bad. It is an enjoyable read, but if you are not into new-fangled vampires, you will want to avoid this. There is a lot of vampire "science" and "vampires don't really need to" kind of stuff. Old school vampire fans will likely be offended. If you enjoy new-fangled vampires, sci-fi, fringe-y, X-Files kind of mysteries, give it a try.

Nymphos and vampires? Sounds like a great book to me. Hopefully the author is heavy on the nymphos.

Not so much yet...

I must admit to imagining some Hammer Horror-styled Bacchanalia - but as of yet no one has even been naked.
