Take look at The Dancing Valkyrie by Peter Klein

The Dancing Valkyrie by Peter Klein

I have gotten to know Pete Klein quite well. He is a talented and accomplished writer. In fact, as a reporter, writing is what he has spent his career doing. Pete has spun an amazing tale, that may be a bit too realistic for younger readers, but which take vampire tales to a higher or lower level. However one prefers to express it, either way is profound.

“The Dancing Valkyrie” is a book that, surprisingly, humanizes vampires and gives them human emotions. Take a look at this presentation of a very creative and quite frightening story of intrigue and suspense. I think you’ll find it unique and different from anything you may have read in this genre.

What if vampires were not demons? What if they were flesh and blood, similar to humans in most respects in that they can present themselves to humans as being fully human both night and day, eat real food and sometimes can't decide if they enjoy the thrill of the kill more than they enjoy having sex with humans? And sometimes do both!

From the Author

The Dancing Valkyrie begins when an erotic dancer at a topless club in Schenectady, NY, learns the truth about these questions and the truth about herself when she takes a hike in the Adirondack Mountains of upstate New York. The novel follows her rapid acclimation into being what she was born to be - a vampire with a lust for both blood and sex - and draws to a conclusion when she meets with a vampire who lives to kill other vampires - and whose name is Van Helsing.

The primary thought behind the writing of "The Dancing Valkyrie" was to portray vampires as they might be if they were a natural creation not yet proven to exist. When I decided to write a vampire novel, I wanted my vampires to be of flesh and blood, not demons who are actually dead. This thought tied in with a second idea. I did not want to copy what others had written. If of flesh and blood, and fully alive, my vampires would be able to eat and drink, not be bothered by the sun or crucifixes, and would be able to pass as human. And since I had always felt a bit sorry for fictional vampires being unable to enjoy sex, it was natural for my vampires to be fully sexual beings. In fact, sex would become the primary bait they would use to get their prey. To make them as human as possible required limiting my vampires from having supernatural abilities. They could have some talents such as rapidly healing from less than fatal injuries and have some psychic abilities such as mind reading and tricking the eye with hypnosis. But they would not be able to become bats or suddenly move from one end of a room to another. The Adirondack location was picked because there is something mysterious about the place. It is an island of wilderness surrounded by a sea of civilization. Hikers and hunters have been lost here without ever being found.


An absolute must for vampire fans!

Allbooks Review

The Dancing Valkyrie by Peter Klein

Blood and sex. Of course love, but not the way humans think about it.

This is the recurring theme throughout The Dancing Valkyrie, a story about Mary Hoffman, librarian by day and exotic dancer by night. Mary, needing some time alone takes a hike along a secluded upstate New York trail. She is saved from two predatory young men by Beth, a beautiful woman slightly older than Mary. The two join together for the rest of the trail, becoming romantically involved along the way. Beth, it turns out is a vampire, and quickly introduces Mary to the mystical world she lives in. After inviting Mary back to her castle, built by her brother, Joseph, in a remote area, Mary is seduced into becoming a vampire as well. Joseph and Beth are hundreds of years old, and pose as brother / sister, but are husband and wife, or, in vampire terms, father and daughter. Thus begins the fascinating story of Mary's transition from human woman to vampire.

This book is full of rich and incredibly descriptive prose that makes you feel you are in every scene. The dialog is both thought provoking and believable (or course we are talking about vampires), with an excellent mix of philosophical, religious and historical references mixed within the real time story. The plot is not complex, as the story is more of a journey than a twisty-turny, keep you in the dark project. It is more than adequate, however, as you quickly become submersed in the protagonist's discovery process. Klein presents vampires in a light never seen before, and frankly one of the most inventive and most original depictions I've ever read.

This is an absolute must read if you are a vampire fan. It should be tempered with the fact that it is an erotic novel, however, the sex is an integral part of the novel's framework and not only necessary, but adds to the overall richness of the work. A pleasant surprise on the last page was: "TO BE CONTINUED". Highly recommended.
