Review: Certain Dark Things

Certain Dark Things: A Novel - Silvia Moreno-Garcia

My first DNF of the year.  There's really nothing wrong with this book, it just isn't for me.


I got about half way through, but had failed to be interested by enough of this novel's characters or anything in the plot. I thought the chapters from the cop's POV were fairly interesting, but not enough to keep reading. Conceptually, I like the vampires, but as ideas more than as characters.


I'll have to try one of Moreno-Garcia's other books at some point.
