URBAN FANTASY REVIEW: Dying Light - D Scott Meek

Release Date: 10/07/10


New sci-fi vampire thriller by D. Scott Meek: In the near future, a new world order society mercilessly eradicates the last victims of the blood virus. Vampyres, constantly in fear of discovery and persecution, live and walk among humans as ordinary people with an extraordinary reality and a haunting past. A deal to save the last vampyres is struck, but intrigue, deception and betrayal ensure that while the sun will rise tomorrow, no one knows who will live to see it.


Occasionally I come across a title from a small publisher that not only attracts my attention but really screams for it. Such is the case with this book by D Scott Meek as 24 charges headlong into Daybreakers to create this amalgam of Science Fiction and Urban Fantasy.

The characters within are fascinating and when packed with a descent cast alongside a story of cataclysmic proportions, you know that the plot is going to be something big.

Finally add a descent author voice, some reasonable prose alongside some cracking twists and it’s a book of definite interest.
