I came across the right one almost by accident. I was heaving out a heap of six or seven books, when I dropped the lot with a clatter on the floor. An old guy in glasses who was studying a huge tome on seals (see under SE) turned around and glared me into the ground. I'm sorry," I said apologetically, and gathered up all the fallen books. And there it was, right under my nose.

This is the 4th in the Manitou series. I really enjoyed the first three and love Masterton's books but I just couldn't get into this one at all and so it hit the wall I'm afraid

She stuck Band-Aids all over Gil’s scalp, in criss-cross patterns, and she even managed to sew back a torn flap of flesh that was dangling from his right earlobe, using nylon button thread. t the operation, Gil sat on the dining chair, whistling tunelessly between his teeth, but when she was tying the thread into a knot, he allowed himself a single, Shit. Gil and I had suffered not much more than scratches and bruises and rat bites. But Frank was growing steadily worse

So nice to read the sequel to the Manitou after all these years and to see what has become of the fortune teller in middle age and some of the other characters in the original story.

This is an absolute gem for Masterton Fans who have enjoyed the three previous books with the Mystical Harry Erskine as the hero. This will be the fourth or Fifth book involving Harry, and provides the usual masterful mix of Magic, Supernatural Terror, Sex and Ultra Violence.
Unusually this paperbook edition has come out first in the US, and I wonder if it has been published elsewhere first? Anyways, I look forward to the HardBack publication so I can have a long lasting edition of this superb frightfest.
It is very clear that the already superb narrative skills of Masterton have been honed through years of writing, and the payoff is a good hero being presented in an even better manner. Luckily for any horror fans not familiar with the Divine Erskine, the backstory bits relevant to this narrative are given, and hopefully you will enjoy this work, and go back to read MANITOU, the REVENGE OF THE MANITOU, DJINN, BURIAL, and all after reading this master-work.

I am very happy to write that as at October 2005, Masterton has a vast number of works out, and all after a period of almost nothing being available in print. Hopefully the success of these new books will resonate, and such classics as PARIAH will also be re-printed; the Inside cover mentions such other Masterton gems as TENGU,CHARNEL HOUSE, and THE CHOSEN CHILD, all of which will repay readings, and re-readings. Masterton's first person narrative creates such vivid worlds that in my opinion, they should ALL be made into films, and the world of Horror films would be so much the richer.
As usual MANITOU BLOOD contains a lush collection of well researched material that will please the supernatural horror fiend.

ENJOY... I recommend my favorite Horror author with great gusto... you will not be disappointed as he scares, tantalises, titillates, and scares the wits out of you.

This is definitely Masterton at his best.I would readily rate it 2nd best after the "Burial" in the Manitou series.Full of bloody gore and horrific deaths,Masterton brings you personally into Harry's world.You can practically see it happening in front of you,a world full of dead vampires and without hope.Be warn! But read it anyway!

I think it's important that I note my unfamiliarity with Mr. Masterton's Manitou series. To my knowledge, the storyline is made up of five novels and a short story, and I've missed every single tale, other than Manitou Blood, which I picked up on a whim recently. I find it important to hammer this point home because, surprisingly, Manitou Blood works wonderfully as a standalone tale. It's not a necessity to have read the previous books in the series: you'll find yourself sucked right into a solid tale with no prior knowledge of these characters or their frightening past plights.

The story itself really doesn't stray all too far from typical vampire mythology, but it does accomplish the introduction of some ideas that are rarely, and in some cases never touched upon. In a sense, Masterton is stylizing the vampire in ways no other contemporary author has managed. Purists however have little reason to fear, as Graham does stick to the erotic elements that travel a parallel course to the vampire mythos, and there's plenty of bloodshed to take in here.

The story pits Harry Erskine, who from what I gather is a frequently explored character and a staple of the Manitou series, as well as a small group of New York survivors against an increasing population of blood suckers. It takes little time for New York City's streets to be overrun by carnage, pale people, full blown vampires and military. The problem is, Harry and his small troupe of buddies (Frank is a physician, infected with the nasty virus after a hazy sexual exchange with an attractive member of the undead, Gil is a bad ass soldier who takes no prisoners and holds no qualms with risking his life, and Jenica, like Harry, dabbles in what you might call witchcraft) are the only citizens who seem to know what the hell is going on and how to stop it.

Romanian folklore is well traveled here, and it ultimately provides this band of fighters the knowledge needed to put the primary villain down for good. By the way, our head honcho nemesis isn't exactly a vampire, but a vampire gatherer; one who controls the undead. But there's a twist in store for readers, as this gatherer, known as Vasile Lup isn't even in control of the situation, this beast is basically the puppet to an even stronger force, far more vile. I won't speak on who or what that is, as it would certainly steal away a sizeable chunk of the shock we're treated to in the latter pages of the novel. I will say this however, there's a direct connection between someone in this group and the ultimate culprit, and it's a bit of a heart breaking link, as evil must be destroyed, and that bears consequences.

Masterton's writing style is pretty damn entertaining, I must say. I'm constantly on the prowl for quality authors, and Graham fits the bill. He's clearly an intelligent gent with a knack for storytelling, but he doesn't decorate his story with intricacies that would challenge a technical genius, and he keeps his characters and ideas very relatable. I cherish the fact that the man doesn't find it necessary to divulge every last minute detail either. Sometimes an insanely descriptive story is exactly what I seek, but I've found that even some of the best authors in the business tend to take details about fifty steps too far (cough, cough, Stephen King - who I admire like few others, but let's be real, he overdoes it on a regular basis and it sometimes makes for a drawn out, annoying read). No, Graham Masterton tells the tale, and lets it breathe at a natural rate. It's a value I respect, and it's a value that, in my opinion, is very welcoming to new discoverers. I myself enjoyed Manitou Blood thoroughly, and I can say with certainty that I'll purchase more works from this man in the future.

Vampire freaks, check this one out. It moves quickly, it's graphic when it should be, and vague when graphic depiction isn't necessary. You'll get your fix of gaping neck wounds and eroticism, and while the story doesn't conclude on a thoroughly bleak note, it sure as hell isn't the picturesque climax often delivered.
