Silver-backed mirrors don't lie. That's one conceit in Book Two of the menacing and literate Strain Trilogy, which attempts to circumvent silly conventions of the vampire genre. The focus is a compelling quest to uncover the vampiric origins held in a silver-edged book. Narrator Daniel Oreskes guides this quest; rarely showing fangs, he uses a straightforward tone to avoid melodrama. Oreskes suggests subtle nuances of character with his gruff voice and acknowledges the acerbic humor when appropriate. His consistent tone helps listeners to maintain suspension of disbelief. A great selection for those seeking alternatives to formulaic vampire fiction. J.L. © AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2011]
