Drayton by Tony Bertauski 3/5
Drayton once believed he was a vampire. He doesn’t know what he is. Or why he lives. He takes not his victim’s blood but the silky essence of their soul during their last breath. Often mistaken for the Angel of Death, his victims sometimes ask for forgiveness. Sometimes he delivers. After all, he is not without sin.
There was a lot of depth and substance to this short story, but I wanted a little more vamp.
Drayton is an interesting character- ancient being in a young body. His lost memories of anything before a century ago are intriguing, and his uncertainty of exactly what he is makes for an interesting read.
There is lots of narrative squeezed into a short story which is surprising. I got this ebook for free from Amazon and found it an easy, quick read.
