The word “noir” doesn’t even begin to capture the dark, gritty world of DEAD MANN WALKING. Hessius Mann is an undead Humphrey Bogart, battered and flawed and wry, and his relationships with the other lost souls in Fort Hammer are poignant moments in this mix of mystery and undeath.
In the common urban fantasy vampire mythology, IN MEMORIES WE FEAR is a completely different kettle of fish, both in paranormal and physical terms. To further complicate the issue, vampire culture has been decimated by the villain, leaving the main characters to flounder around and find their own way. Eleisha’s band of misfits was an interesting group, with a web of interconnecting dependencies that may verge on the unhealthy (but never gets boring). I enjoyed learning about this world as they discovered things themselves.
