Review: So this one was a bit different than I expected. Normally, we romanticize vampires. We like to think they're not monsters but just misunderstood mutations of humans. Well, Callum is not that. He is indeed a bloodthirsty monster with seemingly no conscience and one would think no redeeming qualities. In fact, his one redeeming quality is his attraction to Laramie, though he does hurt Laramie as well. It's unintentional, as vampires have no concept of sickness or disease that apparently repeated bites cause. I can't say that I like Callum, more like he interests me because of his admitted brutality and callousness. He is the leader of his brothers, supposedly the strongest and he keeps his brothers just weak enough to be unable to usurp his position. He decides when they get food, which is of course human blood, and when they don't. One would almost think that Laramie suffers from Stockholm syndrome, but it's a little different and weirder. Callum has a back story that perhaps explains why he is the way he is. All in all, I like this story for the difference in the vampires.
