My Vampire's Aura - a dark poem by Neil Benson

My Vampire's Aura

My free will is gone;
your aura commands me.
You draw me each night,
to ecstasy and pain.

You show me your beauty,
but I know it's not real.
Your beautiful face
masks a soul so dark.

After the pleasure,
you draw my life's blood.
You keep me alive
til' you need me no more.

The weaker I become,
                                                         the greater your pleasure.
                                                        My time is not long,
                                                       lest you make me undead.

                                                          Your promises are hollow;
                                                            I am one of many.
                                                          Bodies strewn through time,
                                                        discarded like waste.

                                                           Tonight will be special.
                                                            I have a treat for you.
                                                           The bright, silver dagger,
                                                            I found in your dresser.

                                                          When you take me in your arms,
                                                         I will end your undead being.
                                                     My life is spent,
                                                        but others will be spared.

Review of Unholy Embrace by Harriet Klausner

Unholy Embrace-Neil Benson

Human Frank Thornton and vampire Nessa Harcanu hold hands as they walk together at night in Manhattan. He knows his beloved is a centuries old vampire, but has not witnessed at all what that means until this evening. Werewolves attack them, but Nessa overpowers them; shaking Frank with her abilities.

They met three weeks earlier with both attracted at first sight. Now he needs to know why the assault. Nessa honestly thinks a serial killing demon she hunts sent the horde. He thinks about leaving her, but cannot as he loves her though he wonders if she is using her vampiric enchantress skills to manipulate his desires. Still Frank tells her he cannot convert, but wants to be with her. She explains the demon is not her worst nightmare. Her sire, who she killed back in 1627 after he converted her and sucked dry her husband, left behind a raging predator the “widow” Narice who wants to destroy her for killing the Master; Frank is her Achilles Heel.

This is an exhilarating urban fantasy filled with demons, werewolves and vampires; oh, my! Frank is a terrific human who feels as if he fell through the rabbit hole when he fell in love while Nessa is an honest vampiress who tells him the truth. Although there is too much going on with the lead couple as the demon hunters and as the Narice hunted, sub-genre fans will enjoy this tale of blood and romance flowing on the streets of Manhattan.
