Sex, blood and rock 'n' roll

AdvantagesGreat story, wacky characters

"...to find his favourite group, Lost Souls, to see if they can help him find his way. He is picked up by a strange group of people, the beautiful Zillah, Molochai and Twig, who appear to live life by partying hard. Before long, it becomes clear that Zillah and Nothing have a strong bond. But is it a healthy one? And can his friends Ghost and Christian help him to see the truth before it is too late?

Nothings lost forever

AdvantagesHer best work

DisadvantagesComplex plot, bleak world view

"...recent novel, Extreme Corpse. Lost Souls, however is both very good, and not overly gory. Lost Souls is a vampire novel, albeit one with decidly unusual vampires.

Lost Souls... Outstanding novel by an amazing author

AdvantagesSexy, good characters, great writing style

DisadvantagesSlightly disjointed plot, 'sad' ending.
