Even though True True Blood blatantly rips off the excellent HBO series True Blood in name only, this novel is about the world's most grisly vampire slayings and is actually quite an interesting read.

Written by Megan Norris who has a passion in crime writing, she collects 9 of the most bizarre and gruesome real-world vampire styled murders from around the world and collates them in this book.

Best of all, Norris even dedicates a chapter to the history of Vampires and whether they are Myths or Monsters which is quite a thought provoking read. The first "vampire" in the novel is Countess Elizabeth Bathory, a Hungarian noble who took the premise of being a vampire to a truly sickening level and was dubbed as the world's first female serial killer.

From here, the reader is taken on a historical journey that includes infamous killers from around the world such as Tracey Wigginton, Matthew Hardman and Perth's lesbian Vampire killers, Valerie Parashumti and Jessica Stasinowsky who even mocked the families of their victims in court.

Norris goes into some detail on why these individuals became so sick, briefly touching on their early life, their crimes and even the court details on their heinous killings. Although vampires do not exist, this novel will explore the dark psyche of humanity and how the premise of vampirism has lead these individuals into a sick and twisted world of bloody murder.

An interesting read if you enjoy crime novels.
