Review- Wake of Vultures by Lila Bowen

True Blood meets American Vampire meets Pretty Deadly? Just WOW. I really love the current wave of Old West-inspired fantasy, steampunk, and horror, and “Wake of Vultures” is such a great addition to my current list of favorite dark fantasy novels. Although populated by vampires, sirens (yes, in the desert), and dread figures from Comanche folklore, “Wake of Vultures” is, at its core, a searing coming-of-age narrative. Nettie is a girl of mixed heritage and unsure sexuality struggling to carve a place for herself, both in the world of monsters and in the world of normal (but still crazy, as she thinks several times) people. A great read for fans of the aforementioned shows and graphic novels, as well as fans of authors like Lilith Saintcrow and Chuck Wendig.
