Book Review of –
The Vampire of the Church
By Laleh Canaan
My overall star rating -- 4
About the book:
A story of vampires, angels, and a human who is enticed to enter their world.
Rumor has it that a vampire has been imprisoned in a cathedral in the small town of Brighton, New York.
Merlyn Marshall, a twenty-something-year-old woman who has grown up in an average family in New York City goes to Brighton, not for the winter vacation but to escape her own personal problems, not knowing that her life is going to change forever, for better, for worse.
What people say turns out to be true.
Merlyn will meet the mystery man; a man with abilities that no man can ever possess...

* based on a 1-10 scale with: 1-4, poor; 5-7, good; 8-10, very good.*
My 5 point review:
-1- The format is that of a daily entry in a journal. It does move in order over a short span of time.
-2- The characters are okay. It could use a little more depth.
-3- Overall, It kept my attention and I was anticipating what would happen next.
-4- I was sad that it just ended abruptly. In a snap, it was just over.
-5- I hope the following books, as this was part 1, will finally bring a resolution (a happier ending) to the characters.
