Leaving the South for a dilapidated house in rural Vermont, Jess brings her injured partner, her infant grandson, and Sophie, a creature who was once her daughter's best friend. This was before the vampire known as the Whistler turned Sophie and Natalie, Jess's daughter. Before Jess had to kill Natalie. Before Sophie's own baby was murdered by vampires. College student Rebecca is drawn to the strange family, sensing a stronger connection to the clan than the one she had in her own foster family. But the Whistler is on Jess's trail, coming to destroy her for taking what he wanted and with plans to abduct Rebecca in the process. Plotting her own bloody trail of destruction is the creature in the attic.
VERDICT The sequel to three-time International Horror Guild Award winner Hirshberg's Motherless Child packs as hard a punch as its predecessor, although it easily stands on its own. Not your average story of vampires, this tale of family, love, and near redemption will please genre and literary enthusiasts alike.
