Blood is the ultimate drug, the ultimate addiction,
and if you need help, try Vampires Anonymous. Nick wants very much to
stay sober, but Whistler, bored and rich, decides on a whim to
destroy V.A. -- to seduce the recovering vampires once again to
blood. Nick never sees what's coming until too late.
All vampires are not created equal, and author Jonathan Nasaw
simply does not have as good an offering as other recent vampire
titles. The World on Blood, in fact, is less about vampirism
and more about living with addictions. The characters are human in
their weaknesses, but most are unsympathetic and self-centered to an
extreme. The many sex scenes fall short of the eroticism they
attempt, and there is an ugly attitude which Nasaw's surprisingly
humorous touch cannot relieve.
