NYV: Goth (New York Vampire #2) by K.D. McQuain

In the continuing story of Christian “Chris” Leclères, the East Texas boy turned by a rogue vampire, we follow his transformation from a denizen of the streets of New York to the poster boy of the Goth scene. The story of the rogue vampire, Gilles de Montmorency-Laval, is also steadily revealed in flashbacks until his timeline meets up with the current action. Characters from the previous novel make appearances throughout as well as the introduction of new and interesting ones.

This book has a lot of exposition but it is intermingled with action and resolution of issues from book one. As a caution, although these books have a young vibe, this second installment contains explicit sex scenes and some depictions of pretty graphic torture – not to mention the vampire violence, blood, and gore. Just saying, it’s not for the faint of heart nor the kiddies. NYV: Goth was a very good story and it sets up situations for future books that I will be looking to read.
