This book is exactly as it seems - which is to say - it is dark, violent, at times uncomfortable, and is perfect read when you are looking for something a bit more macabre...

The writing is tight, the first three volumes makes a fully complete story, with an interesting ending. The characters are flawed, but interestingly so, at times, it is almost too dark. The vampires are not sparkly, the creatures of the night inhuman. Its a bit refreshing to read after much of the paranormal urban fantasy that is out there.

This book isn't for everyone - it has rape, torture, and horrific violence. ( )

This is a very nice collection of three Sonja Blue novels by the writer Nancy A. Collins, called ‘Midnight Blue’. All in all, a very good trilogy. Nancy Collins has a complete map of her world in her mind, full of supernatural beings, each with their special characteristics and kinks, living in a modern day urban fantasy environment. The basic character is Sonja, a beautiful and independent vampiress and vampire hunter. Armed with a silver switchblade, hidden behind her mirror sunglasses, she brews trouble everywhere she goes and leaves nothing but corpses and broken hearts in her wake.

Nancy Collins is very eloquent, with detailed descriptions that never become boring, and also not shy about describing some controversial and sensitive themes like sex, murder and exploitation, religious and otherwise. Sonja walks the ugliest, dirtiest, seediest places downtown and the reader sees the world through her cynical, supernaturally attuned eyes. It’s a grotesque yet fun ride. The end of the third book is a bit too grandiose for my standards, but what the hell, why not. It fits the character. Anyone looking for something different than Twilight or True Blood is welcome to try Mrs Collins. ( )

I have worn out one copy already (damn that glued binding!). How many times have I read this? 8? 10? Never gets old. There's something about Collins' writing here that always draws me back to the story. Blue's character is fascinating, and Collins really tells some good stories. A perfect book to read when you're feeling like giving a sharp smile to someone.

A omnibus collection of the first three Sonja Blue novels:

Sunglasses After Dark
In the Blood
Paint It Black

Vampire hybrid slayer's mental reintregration.

Sonja Blue follows in the tradition of Blade, but her unfortunate torture and medical intervention incident comes at a much later age. Attacked by a vampire she managed to avoid the whole vampire demon thing and ends in a hospital, and then an asylum.

This leads her on a pretty dark psychological journey after escape, and given she is immune to most vampire weaknesses in this universe - sunlight, holy water, being really stupid because of transformation which she escapes, becoming a vampire slayer is a natural for her after it is suggested.

No romance here, in this dark and twisted supernatural world with many other monsters other than vampires.

3.5 out of 5

Supernatural team-up.

When you have a psychic detective vampire slayer, what else would happen? Team-up, sure, nookie too if they happen to be of the appropriate flavour for each other.

With a boyfriend around Sonja is not quite as nasty and unstable, and the search for monsters, especially the vampire that tortured her to start with, and her own parents continues.

3 out of 5

New Orleans sex scene stakeout.

Sonja, with Palmer still around is getting closer to tracking down Morgan, the vampire she would most like to do away with. This supernatural search leads her to the sordid and seedy clubs.

Vampires can control the minds of human, and hence their pleasure centres, making them extremely plaint sex toys as well as prey.

So, much sex and death on the way to a showdown, and hence this novel is a little more twisted than the previous.
