Be Careful What You Fish For
22 June 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a reasonably good vampire story. A young man who works in a fish market is going nowhere in his life. One night as he walks by the pier, he sees a beautiful young woman, reclining on a barge. The weird things is that she is trapped there and he can't access the barge. She can't cross water, but the little stream leading to the harbor is drying up and there is hope. She lives with her father. She can't go out during the day so he leaves her behind. The young man can't get it through his head that this woman is dangerous. One day, the woman who really loves him, follows him and sees the beautiful girl get into a box. She is obviously a vampire. The young man won't listen at first but eventually does. Still, he feels that love is the answer and that he can break the spell. Or that she is worth dying for. Things get out of hand. This is intriguing and pretty well done.
