Blood sinister by Celia Rees( Book )

24 editions published between 1996 and 2011 in 5 languages and held by 330 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Une version très contemporaine du mythe des vampires. Avec cette fois-ci, une tentative d'expliquer certaines maladies du sang, dont les symptômes sont probablement à l'origine des superstitions passées sur les vampires. Malheureusement, cette dimension scientifique est peu exploitée. On aboutit sur un énième Dracula, avec une fin rapide et assez convenue. L'intérêt du roman vient surtout de la filiation entre deux jeunes femmes à travers les époques. Des femmes qui ont l'air fragile et soumise, mais les deux Ellen sont intelligentes, volontaires et déterminées. Le comte Szekely et le docteur Stacey n'ont aucune chance face à elles, quoiqu'on aura pas mal frissonné entre temps. [SDM]

After all, a deal's a deal--a favor for a favor. A soul for a soul ...

Michael Rosen's Rant examines the enduring appeal of horror stories. and our panel - John Richmond, educational writer, Darren Hart, librarian, and Winsome Thomas, a teacher adviser, read Stephen King's Carrie. Is it a cult classic or mildly pornographic?
