Other Books by David McAfee: 33 . I can’t say how long we danced like that; it seemed to me I was lost for centuries, though it couldn’t have been longer than the single song. I could have stayed right there in that minute for the rest of my life and beyond, but even then I knew it would end. Sooner or later, it would have to.

I wish I had read Saying Goodbye to the Sun before I read 33 . Now about the book: I haven't read any previous works from Mr. McAfee, so I have to judge his writing based on this one. It is a very visual novel. Both books stand alone without a problem, but I would have liked to have had the author's full take on his version of vampires, as well as the history of the Council of 13 first. If you have the chance, read this one before the other. That said, the author prefaces the book by stating that he never intended to publish this book and did so only at the urging of friends. You could almost see Vincent and the Council lurking in the shadows. In McAfee's world, vamps aren't allowed to be made without approval from the Council of 13 and Raine didn't get permission. The Council, in a rare move, decides to finish turning Vincent instead of killing him and sends him out to capture Raine.

While I very much enjoyed Saying Goodbye to the Sun, I think I enjoyed 33AD more. That said, I'd recommend Saying Goodbye to the Sun to those who enjoy a good bloody vampire book. David McAfee is one to watch.

From the bestselling author of 33 A.D. New York City, 1986. The name of the beautiful woman in the red dress is Raine, and Vincent Walker has no idea she’s about to change his life forever – by ending it. Now, impossible as it is to believe, Vincent is turning into a vampire. He sets out to find the woman who changed him, hoping she can take it back. Instead, he finds himself at the mercy of the infamous Council of Thirteen. Not wanting to risk any of its more valuable servants, The Council assigns him the task of bringing her back to be punished for turning him without permission. If he succeeds, the woman he loves will be no more. If he refuses, the Council will take out its anger on him, instead. But Vincent is not the only one looking. Something driven by a century-old vendetta hunts them both, and it won’t stop until they are destroyed. If Vincent can find Raine first, the two may be able to disappear together. But he is beginning to like the growing evil inside him. Already he wonders if he will save her, or kill her himself.

Vincent Walker encounters a beautiful woman in a red dress who is Raine. He pursues her which leads him down a road which results in him leaving behind his human life and starts his new life as a vampire or Bachyr. Not quite totally turned the Council of 13 sends him and another female vampire on a mission to locate Raine. She fled upon starting the turn on Vincent but didn't stick around long enough to finish it. The Council of 13, a group of vampires, wants to punish Raine for turning him without permission. Vincent and the other vampire head out to hunt her down, along with two renegade vampires who are hunting Raine as well. Finding out what happens to Vincent and Raine is well worth the read.

I wish I had read Saying Goodbye to the Sun before I read 33 A.D. Both books stand alone without a problem, but I would have liked to have had the author's full take on his version of vampires, as well as the history of the Council of 13 first. If you have the chance, read this one before the other.

That said, the author prefaces the book by stating that he never intended to publish this book and did so only at the urging of friends. Good for them! For a first effort, the story is remarkably well-polished. He also states that this is more of a romance than the other book. Okay, maybe a teensy bit, but it's still firmly entrenched in the horror genre.

As I stated in my review for 33 A.D., if you're expecting sparkly, loveable teenaged vampires with cutesy attitude problems, look elsewhere. This book is what vampire novels should be: scary and violent.
I don't recall any of Anne Rice's Vamps being cuddly, either.

The story is told from the POV of Vincent, a human turned vampire in the mid-1980's by a stunningly flawed vampire, Raine. She tried to resist turning him, but Vincent couldn't manage to stay away from her. Raine is being pursued by other vampires and after partially-turning Vincent, she disappears. In McAfee's world, vamps aren't allowed to be made without approval from the Council of 13 and Raine didn't get permission. The Council, in a rare move, decides to finish turning Vincent instead of killing him and sends him out to capture Raine.

The plot moves right along, while giving the reader detailed information on what constitutes the powers of vampires and their history.

If anything, I thought the book was a little short. He could have taken this storyline and doubled it, I wouldn't have been the least bit disappointed. I am eagerly looking forward to the sequel to 33 A.D.

Well, Saying goodbye to the Sun was my first Kindle Book.
I really enjoyed the new experience, reading an e-reader is great.
You dont miss the paper at all, and I really recommend the Amazon KINDLE.

Now about the book: I haven't read any previous works from Mr. McAfee, so I have to judge his writing based on this one. It is a very visual novel. You could almost see
Vincent and the Council lurking in the shadows. I think it would make a very good B vampire movie. BUT...there are some things here and there that do not help the book at all. Although I like books written in first person, this formula does not quite work very well at some points in the narrative. There is not much characters development, except for Vincent, and his not-very-credible love for Raine.
It just doesn't feel real at all. There are not much details about the time when the story is taking place. The 80's come on! There is much more plenty of information about the 80's (than Lady in Red) that is no present here.
Or at least I didn't feel like I was in that particular decade.
The characters motivations sometimes fall weak, like if they were mended to proceed with the main story. I also felt like there are gaps in the story. Things that took place that needed to be explained in more detail. By the end of the book you feel like if you have miss part of it, and just accept what the writer tells you.
Mmm, does not work for me.

A nice book to spend time, but nothing to create everlasting memories.

Maybe I will read Mr. McAffe's other book about the Bachyr, 33 A.D.
I hope that one to be more cautivating, but I have my doubts.

the author's writing style is certainly evocative. atmosphere, mood and setting are eerily painted (in blood spray!) and it's like you're reading it in a not quite natural candlelight. his style is visual and visceral.

i really liked 33 a.d. and thought i would be disappointed since this story is fast-forwarded to the 1980s. but no,i really, really liked this book.

one of my favorite things about this book was the genesis of the bachyir (vampire)race. high council member ramah's confession to vincent is hypnotic. he seems remorseful of the evils he's committed. in fact, he's very likable - as he must have been when human. you forget that he is not a nice guy anymore.

vincent, on his way to losing his own humanity (he is unaware he has already lost his soul), only wants to find 'the love of his life', but he's not sure if he wants to run away with her or kill her.

the lost ones are a real creepy to read about. and i want to know what happens to kagen...will he be in another book?

i was glad to see a sequel to 33 a.d. available on amazon.com. def. gonna buy it.
