JESSA SOBCZUK - RUE MORGUE MAGAZINE ISSUE #131, March 2013
Welcome to the seedy underbelly of Toronto circa 1990, where Randy Daudlin's action-packed vampire novel, Blood Promise, takes place among the Yonge Street sex shops, junkies, prostitutes, rapists and crime rings.
Homicide detective Reg Martin has been wasting away in a haze of nightmares and whiskey ever since he witnessed his partner's mysterious on-duty murder. When the RCMP requests his aid on what looks to be a related killing spree (all the victims have been drained of their blood), Reg picks up the pieces that are left of his broken career and attempts to work through the post-traumatic stress he's experiencing in order to make headway on the case. The evidence all seems to be leading to a club called The Afterlife where, unbeknownst to Reg, the vampire Queen Lleha has made her headquarters. Reg soon realizes he is being followed by a mysterious figure, but in order to befriend this potential informant, he must confront his greatest fears and accept the new supernatural reality that is facing him: in order to fight Lleha and her gang of blood-crazy fiends, he must join forces with a vampire.
This violent and gruesome story is Daudlin's first foray into fiction after years in the special effects industry. It favours graphic action over introspective explanations, so while this is undeniably a fast-paced read, the team working on the case form a stale cast of characters that can easily be confused for one another. Daudlin also introduces an equally stereotypical supporting cast (sex-crazed junkie, mobster-type criminals, the strong-but-silent bodygard, etc.). Despite this, Blood Promise still shows a great deal of potential for a debut novel, and as it appears to be Volume 1 in a continuing story, perhaps there will be more character development and further fleshing out of the supernatural back story in the sequels.
While Blood Promise may satiate vampire enthusiasts' desperate thirst for blood, it's not quite a well-rounded meal.

Must Have!!! Blood Promise, March 7, 2013
I am not a Big reader, usually I don't have too much time and what I do read MUST draw me in Immediately, and Not after a few chapters or halfway through the book. "Blood Promise" drew me in from the beginning. Vampires, mystery, action!! it's at the top of my list of books/novels I have read. The characters and situations are very believable and vivid. I wouldn't say it's for the faint of heart as some of the details are quite descriptive, but being a very visual person that was perfect, and I very much appreciated it, plus I really don't mind goriness at all. It's so refreshing to see vampires portrayed in a way that they should be and Not the way I feel recent movies and books have portrayed them, which takes away from the fact that yes they are very seductive, however, they are also ruthless killers and Not some "sparkly teenage "vampires"lusting after one another. Blood Promise" is very much worth the read and I am Very much looking forward to reading more from Mr. Daudlin! Great job!! Highly recommend "Blood Promise"
