ALA/Booklist gives Alex Van Helsing Good Review

This is a nice one, just showing up today for Alex Van Helsing: Vampire Rising.

I won't reproduce it here-- it's at the Amazon page-- but one thing I find interesting is that this is the second review to call out the "Da Vinci code" plot in the book-- a key to the plot is the activities of several people who were all involved in the writing of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein. True to form, the ALA guy loves the literary mystery stuff, but could do without the "action-movie assault" scenes. I think that's delightful because there's bound to be a couple of people who land just the opposite way.

Booklist is the review journal for the American Library Association, which is to say they recommend works (or warn against them, I guess) for libraries, schools, and the like.) So getting a positive nod from them is fortunate.
