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.

Sonja Blue was made into a vampire but wasn't killed. She has the urges of a vampire for blood and the strength. She has a need to find the man who made her into a vampire and to wreak a revenge on him.

It's full of the angst of the typical Wolf Vampire and with an underlying plot of change for the world. Sonja is very alone in the world and she is quite a hard person to like.

It contains the books Sunglasses After Dark; In the Blood and Paint it Black. The best are Sunglasses after Dark followed by Paint it Black. ( )
