    Title Bound In FleshAuthor David Thomas LordPublisher Kensington BooksEdition, Price Trade 14.00 20.00Publishing Date August 2006Review by Nickolas Cook BOUND IN FLESH, the second installment in Lord s epic vampire saga reportedly a five book series , raises him to the zenith of the modern vampire fiction mountain This may be one of the most inventive takes on the classical vampire archetype I ve read in many years Not since Anne Rice s classic vampire fiction have I found myself so immersed in a fictional vampire world In the first novel, BOUND IN BLOOD, we met Jean Luc Courbet Jack to his friends and victims , a seductive predatory gay vampire living in New York City On the international lame from his murderous mother, he played serial killer across the Big Apple, dining on the hottest of NYC gay society As the victims piled up, the story came to an end in true tragically operatic fashion, a literally fiery denouement.BOUND IN FLESH flashes forward a month, and Jack s last victim, ex cop Michael O Donald, finds that his dead lover is only the beginning of his problems, as vampire slave Claude Halloran entraps him and plans to use him to finally destroy Jack s super powerful monster of a mom, Noel Courbet.This tale alone would have made a decent enough story to captivate his fans, but, for Lord, that s just the tip of the fang.From France to New York, and then to The City of Sin, BOUND IN FLESH runs the gambit, from soulful introspection, as O Donald must come to grips with his new undead powers and limitations, to the fantastical in the shape of Purity St Martin, The Red Witch, and Baum and White, freakishly tall albino undead twin lovers who oversee all of Jack s legacy and estate, inhuman creatures with their agenda.Jack and Claude form a union of sorts, and switch their old bodies for new now Apollo and Loki to become the toast of Las Vegas as a duo of impossible and mysterious show magicians O Donald and Purity form their own union to hunt down the vampires and destroy their evil plans to perform a Black Mass to gain ultimate undead power We have blood, lust, magic and betrayals enough to keep any Greek tragedian racing through to the last page The end will not disappoint even the most jaded of vampire fiction fans.With BOUND IN FLESH, Lord changes the pace of the story, dropping most of the ponderous sex scenes from BOUND IN BLOOD, and using dialogue to carry the exposition Proving himself than a vampire writer , or even an eroticist, with this newest installment, he impresses that even the stall tropes of the weary vampire sub genre have yet to be completely sucked dry Using a classical style with just enough sexual edginess to titillate he manages to break beyond the standard horror fare to create his own fiction an admixture of horror and fantasy, and undeniably his forte His characters are flawed beings, and can never know perfection, but move on instinct and emotion His villains are than simplistic bloodsuckers looking for a fresh meal these creatures are Machiavellian masters infused with immense mental and physical powers And it is during these moments, that we see what a true classical education can do for a serious examination of good and evil There are many emotional levels to his villains, so even than his undead hero, Michael Acceptance leads to rage rage leads to a cool clinical dissection of human life To his lead villain, Apollo once Jean Luc , death is a means to an end not an end in itself and he undergoes several transformations to illustrate his newfound belief in something beyond even himself Flesh and mind are paper barriers, to be ripped apart for discovery s sake.Lord also takes time to examine the modern incarnation of Goth culture, a fetish like underground movement that has embraced Rice s fiction with childlike acceptance A once literate cult of dark music and bleakly existential literature, now sadly a pitiable reflection of its former self, Lord creates a sensual master and servant scenario to illustrate this modern disconnection with Old Goth vs New Goth His children of the night posers become the ultimate, and willing, fodder for Apollo and Loki s dreams for world domination, as they trade in their self perpetuated shadows of the dance club world for the true blackness of death and eternal hunger.If this second novel illustrates what s coming down the pike from this talented writer of dark semi classical fiction, then one can only salivate for the third in the series I have high hopes what may lie beyond in Lord s fantastically dark worldview Nickolas Cook

    I thought this book had potential so I stuck with it After the first 25 pages or so it got slightly better, but that was pretty much it This book is like a secular Easter egg hunt Buried in it s zillions of words are the few that matter.The book is detailed, overwhelming I thought at first it was a reflection on the narcissism that the book claims that vampires get No detail too small is left out But its the wrong details I know about some of the people that the vampires ate than I do about the main characters There will be pages on how a primary character dresses, but nothing on how they think The coup de gr ce was the ending I thought it was not good The worst choice among many possibilities.The book is about gay vampires They kill people They have sex It s not really an erotic book as much it is a book about power and control I really wanted to like this book I tried, but it just didn t happen.

    Bound in Flesh was not as good as I had hoped After reading Bound in Blood I had higher expectations This had a whole different feel to it with a lot of dark magick that I would not have expected from a vampire novel The sex scenes were not as seductive either They were sick and grotesque in a way However, the power struggle of becoming immortal god like was a good plot I liked that it picked up right after Bound in Blood ended I didn t feel the closure I normally get at the end of a book , and I felt there was a real ending to this story Michael was a new kind of vampire that I fell in love with, as my disgust grew and my fading crush extinguish for Jack I m interested to see where David Thomas Lord takes this story next
