Author: Scott Snyder, Stephen King
Illustrator: Rafael Alberquerque
In the late 1800's an outlaw named Sweet is transformed into vampire. He emerges with new and different powers than the old ones, who want him dead.
In the early 1920's an actress looking for her big break gets feed to a group of vampires and is left for dead. Sweet saves her by making her one of his kind. She then seeks revenge on those who attacked her.
An outstanding tale this gets the reader immediately sucked into its universe (no pun intended). It effortlessly goes between Sweet's origin and Pearl's transformation. Both end up in a battle with the old ones. And the book does an excellent job of portraying each time period the story is set in. I am looking forward to see where this tale goes.
