Review of The Draculata Nest by John Hundley

The Draculata Nest

This book is primarily about Clifford Crane, a man who is 60 human years old but has only been a werewolf for 5 or 6, and the person who changed him has since passed away leaving him with very little knowledge of werewolves.  Most of the information he does have comes from Kent a friend of 40 plus years he met in collage who is now a vampire and Kent's lover Roland who is quite high ranking in the local vampire nest.  Clifford finds himself unexpectedly confronting a member of a "travelling" pack of vampires which means he is now centre of attention, well for the vampires anyway.

Now please don't read the above and assume that its vampires and werewolves and you have seen it all before which, in fairness, is what I thought before I read the book however, you are in for a pleasant surprise!  I think the first thing that's good is Cliffords age, he thinks about what he is doing all the time and that gives the book a more mature feel, this is not a book about gung-ho kids steaming into any situation without thought!  I like the relationship between Clifford and Kent, two men who have known each other for decades and are finding a way to continue their friendship despite now being totally different creatures. This book is well thought out and highly entertaining.  There are a couple of parts I found superfluous such as Clifford's recovering drug habit which did not seem to impact the story but this is the first in the series so perhaps all will become clear in time.

I would rate this book 4 out of 5 stars.
